What do you think of the new site?

Comments

The site looks fabulous! BTW, I read your Bio. Does this make me your mistress, or your second wife?

I like the new site a lot. Just one suggestion. There a LOT of space between the top of the browser and the first part of the content. Any way to condense that? Perhaps put the tag line "analyzing the cubs to death..." in the same top graphic as the new logo? That second bar of blue is kinda thick.

It's just a lot of empty real estate that might be better used to see headlines quickly. Or if you prefer metaphors, it's just a lot of forehead before I get to look you guys in the eyes.

I've always been a fan even though I post less and less every year. But this is a nice step in the evolution. Well done.

That blue bar could use a little vertical compression.

Thanks for the suggestion...it could use a little condensing, but some of that top white space is designed to place ad banners eventually.

It's fast! On the old site Firefox kept warning me about an unresponsive script. Maybe this site will slow down when you sell some more ads.

  • He's had so few save opportunities that it might be difficult for him to get the All Star nod but Rondon has an absolutely ridiculous 1.05 ERA and 1.06 FIP after this game so far (and I think his worst outing was in the 10th inning non save situation) so I do absolutely think he is worth considering.

  • wood(4)/grimm/strop/rondon combine for 7ip 0h 0bb 8K

    nasty.

  • 3ip 0h 0bb 3k for t.wood...nice.

    28 pitches.

    wonder if they'll let him go another.

    4ip 0h 0bb 4k...and probably done f'real this time. 43 pitches and in line for the win.

  • Depends how long he'd be gone but if not too long I would assume they'll use Wood or Cahill and limit them to 4 or 5 innings and call up a reliever to use in the bullpen.

  • hopefully it's a carlos-zambrano-special and he just needs to drink more water and less coffee+redbull before starts.

  • Assuming Hammel needs some DL time for the hammy, who do the Cubs call up: Glasnow or Taillon? Too many starting pitching prospects at Iowa to choose from.

  • "cramping in right hamstring" according to the booth.

    btw, it was his left hamstring that was injured last year.

  • hammel is injured and done..."leg cramp" or some other leg issue...was down behind the mound coming back from commercial and seemed to have injured himself warming up on the mound between innings.

  • heyward with a bit of starlin castro disease...you're great D dude, but you can't range 200ft in all directions even if you're playing CF.

    that said, he almost had it...though zobrist or baez should have had it if heyward wasn't coming on at 100mph.

    hammel is quite wild today even if he got the first 2 outs on Ks that were result of swinging through stuff not in the zone.

  • she did fine, fwiw.

    bombs were bursting in the air...ramparts were watched...all that stuff.

    zoobrest kissed her afterwards and got about 20lbs of the 100lbs of makeup she was wearing on him.
