Comments

schwindel injured running out a grounder (back tightness)...big blow to the bullpen.

on the bright side, we got "good" thompson today.

Seriously, now they win two in a row against the Braves? A headline on the Cubs' website said something about "Cubs go for the series win against the Braves" and I was thinking "slow your roll, buddy-- they just ended a 10 game losing streak. Let's not get irrationally exuberant here."

that's why getting to the playoffs matter, not being the best.  being competitive in baseball can mean being slightly above average with the extended playoff structure.

the best is favored to win, of course, but baseball history is littered with a "non-deserving" team winning the pennant or world series.

The best part of the last 2 days were the starts by Steele and Thompson. Young pitchers that can stick as starters need experience. Even the best have volatile starts and I recall Mark Prior was 6-6 in his first season. The implications that they can use Stroman plus a good young rotation like Thompson, Steele and Killian gives me hope that they can compete once the young outfielders grow up. Hopefully, they get useful chips if they move Hendricks and Contreras although I still think Contreras should be signed.

Exactly. The only above Replacement value position players I see are Happ, Contreras, Suzuki, Morel, and Hoerner (probably). I don't see how trading Contreras & Happ makes this team any more competitive in 2023 than this year. Unless there's a MLB-ready player in return, at which point, why would the other team do that? They should be adding a DH masher, big FA SS, etc. And that's assuming Prospects like Caissie, Armstrong, et al, are ready in 2024.

Cubster -- You and Crunch make good points.  During a ten game losing streak it's easy to get down but there is plenty to be excited about.  Watching a young player and not knowing if they're a flash (hero for a day) or if they are tent poles for the future is what still makes baseball fun.  Seriously, ten years from now we may say, "Remember Frank the Tank?  He was fun."  Or we may be celebrating his career as our first baseman/designated hitter/relief pitcher.  We don't know today but I'm going to stay and watch whichever steak the team is having.

when his pitching career is over the cubs should hire him to work in the community relations and promotional giveaway division considering how many free souvenirs he likes to pass out while pitching.

we haven't seen "good kyle" on the regular for years, but we'll always remember "wish.com greg maddux" from his good years.

    I got to attend the Saturday game in person. The crowd really was half, or more, Cubs fans. It was nice to see Morel looking confident at third. Imanaga looked slightly less dominant but I was excited to be there for his first win. Almonte and Neris looked just as uninspiring as they have on TV so far.

    I was at the Cubs - Dodgers game at Wrigley Field in May 1967, the last game before Ken Holtzman was to report for active duty and be gone for a long time. (He ended up getting leave occasionally on weekends so he could pitch for the Cubs). Cubs won 20-3. Knocked out Claude Osteen. Holtzman pitched a complete game. Randy Hundley hit a grand slam. Adolfo Phillips hit a HR and a double and drove in six runs. Even Glenn Beckett hit a HR! Ted Savage stole home (and it was a true "Jackie Robinson" steal of home, too, not the back end of a double steal). For me, it was one of the most memorable Cubs games of the 1960's.

    azbobbop: No update on Derniche Valdez. He is still on the Restricted List.

    ken holtzman has died.

    if it's not a morel injury i'd at least like him to sit long enough to get his finger healed.  he doesn't seem to be swinging as strongly and even foul balls are bothering him.  he's been carrying the injury for a week-ish now.

    dude almost lost is career and use of one of his hands years ago, and he's young...nothing short of his hand falling off will have him telling counsell or the trainers he's not good to go.

    Heyman reports Canario is being promoted
    No mention of who's going down
    This seems weird
    I'm not upset at all, but is he going to play?
    Wisdom staying to Iowa?
    Mastro going down?
    Someone hurt?
    We'll see

    truth.  his velocity does tend to peak out at 80-90 pitches, but i think he has it in him with regular work given what he showed last season.

    the fact he moves so seamlessly between starting and long relief may doom him to the pen, anyway.

    Phil, my presumption was that the Cubs are sellers at the trade deadline and that Happ would be willing to waive his no trade clause to play for a potential WS champion. Lots of ifs there but I don’t think completely out of the question.
