Comments

that's 3 starters no one would guess would be 2022 MLB cubs starters and a 4th that was supposed to be traded mid-season.

bit surprised and pleased that a.sampson hasn't given up 100 or so homers in his 88+ innings.  maybe he can be 2023 alec mills.  speaking of, i hope this team is done with alec mills.  we got sampson, assad, kllian...they can do long + spot start + injury...

i'm ready for the off-season.

s.suzuki's paternity leave extended and he's been put on the restricted list.

he's expected to be back some time within this series with PIT.

wesn Ks 3 on 9 pitches...immaculate inning.

4th in franchise history...latroy hawkins had the last one.

ive integrated my life into the internet rather deeply for someone that doesn't mix internet and "real life" at all.  i like keeping the separation even though i'm deeply involved in both "worlds."

wife has her kindle, i have multiple computers in multiple rooms.  we both spend a lot of time together and on "our devices."

i'm on the internet a lot, but it's not most of what i'm doing with my time.  i puke out thoughts and go do other things.

Hey, it's time to spin the Mark Leiter, Jr. Wheel of Fortune!  Where will the spinner stop?!?

crazy amount of "small ball" being played since the break by the cubs.  a lot of it very recently.

i can't recall the last time i've seen the cubs bunt and hit/run so much.

Pujols #700 !!!!!!

yeah, the big reason he's done it is because of his long contract and the sunk cost...but wow...700.

still no s.suzuki...maybe tomorrow.

nico available off the bench.

also, i know options are sketchy and 2022 is a partial audition for 2023...but i don't wanna see z.mckinstry hitting leadoff, or even a starter option going into 2023...

don mattingly and the marlins have "mutually agreed" to part ways at the end of the season.

i thought he would hang out with the team forever or something.

the whole franmil reyes situation seems to be sorting itself out.

bat has been dead for quite a while.

weird seeing him play RF today.  he did it poorly, as expected, but nothing terrible.

Kyle Schwarber hits 2 HR's today, now at 42. Phils inching ahead of the Brewers in the final wild card slot. WSox eliminated today in a week of epic failure. Kris Bryant goes a whole season as a Rockie without a home field HR. Nagging injuries are no fun.

9 games left in the season, starting tuesday.

3 vs phillies, 6 vs reds (back-to-back, 3 home then 3 on the road).

    He's totally dependent in that splitter. But I won't worry about it until mid March.

    smyly going tomorrow.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Would you take Wisdom over Cooper if both were healthy? Power over steadiness?

  • Eric S (view)

    That throw was very concerning. Maybe he still was second guessing not throwing to second base and instead thought throwing towards the first base side dugout was the best option. 

  • crunch (view)

    forget the error on the shaw throw (from 2nd)...the velocity on the throw (made on the move) was as terrible as it was wide, even for a 2nd baseman.

  • crunch (view)

    wicks again but not jameson taillon or imanaga yet?

    i hate to tin foil...NONETHELESS...

    is wicks being thrown to the wolves to determine whether he's trutsted enough to snag that 5 slot or the cubs -might- need to add another starter?  getting some vibes over here...

  • Arizona Phil (view)

    Childersb3: Because Edwards, Peralta, and Cooper are post-2023 Article XX-B MLB free agents who signed 2024 minor league contracts, they have automatic opt outs on Opening Day if not added to the 40 by that time. So they are essentially injury insurance and likely won't make the Cubs Opening Day 26-man roster unless there is an injury. 

    So Peralta probably has a chance to make the team only if something bad happens to Busch, Happ, Bellinger, and/or Tauchman during Spring Training, Cooper has a chance probably only if something bad happens to Morel and/or Wisdom, and Edwards has a chance to make the team if something bad happens to Neris, Alzolay, and/or Merryweather. 

    Meanwhile they can play in MLB Cactus League Spring Training games and show what they have to offer to the other MLB clubs (or even to NPB and KBO clubs) in case it turns out the Cubs don't need them and they opt-out at the end of Spring Training.

    It’s nice having a farm system where the rosters aren’t loaded with minor league filler.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Phil and I are together on the lack of faith in Leiter.

    He better get that splitter going asap.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    If Canario and PCA don't make the OD roster, look at the Iowa roster here:

    C Windham/Veteran

    1B Mervis/Bote

    2B Strumpf/Cantrelle

    SS Vazquez/Cantrelle

    3B Murray/Slaughter

    LF Davis/DHill

    CF PCA/Roederer

    RF Canario/Caissie

    DH Caissie

    I thought their lineup last year was loaded

    This is ridiculous

    Rotation: Brown, Wicks, Kilian, RThompson, maybe Wesneski and Horton soon

    Not bad at all
