Your 2010 Cubs: What To Expect

Hello, everyone! I'm Lizzy: Native Virginian, devoted Cubs fan, and author of a blog called The Fair Base Ballist. I was supposed to make a guest post here when Rob G. was on vacation, but technical difficulties prevented my doing so. I spent a good chunk of time hammering out individual player projections for 2010, and Rob has been kind enough to let me go ahead and post them. I hope you'll enjoy, and please contribute your own ideas to mine (especially for the mystery bench player who is likely to be announced 5 minutes after I publish this. I have omitted the 4 candidates for brevity's sake.)

Without further fanfare, your 2010 Chicago Cubs previews. They are all 100% serious.

The Los Angeles A-N-.....um, Better Just Look at the Shirt

Reader Chad emailed me this picture that someone snapped on their cellphone. It appears that Nike's outsourcing to foreign countries may have gotten something lost in translation. I feel bad for the kid who ends up wearing it on the playground.

It's slightly Not Suited For Work, so take a look after the jump.

(The first one to make an AngelFan wife joke, will get their virtual asses kicked.)

  • O&B: Cease was apparently working on his off-speed pitches in his first & thrd innings, because in his second inning of work he just blew the D'backs away with high-velocity gas (that's when he hit 99-100 and struck out the side).

  • 1. I did not say the thing I insisted that Trans write down and attribute to me, or it was taken out of context.

    2. Trans and his "roast" (aka, a Salisbury steak TV dinner by Swanson) are very low energy.

    3. Make TCR great again.

  • Thanks for the post AZ. That's a huge attendance. Scouts must be excited about somebody.

    Would you say Cease's performance was a result of working on his change or was it just a bad outing? And isn't Ademan some ridiculous age, like 17 or something?What are your thoughts on him?

  • LOL and yes. No need to even be that formal, can just say "Trans, keep my name out of this abomination of a discussion."

  • So, let me just make sure I understand... I could say something like the following, for example:

    ryno: Off the record, I think that play was literally worse than Hitler.
