    cubs need to get david ross back.

    not as manager.  dude threw 2ip 0h 0bb 0k ball.  6 up, 6 down.

    sign the dude.

    welp.

    By bringing in a trusted reliever and having him throw batting practice.

  • TarzanJoeWallis 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    He is a home run threat. Earlier this year graphics were put up about him being in the top five in homers per at bat over some time period.

    But like any other guy of his ilk he’s also a massive strike out threat. When you’re not hitting you have to cash in opportunities anyway you can. Personally I’d much rather use the element of surprise in that situation then have him flail away and hope to hit something, which is basically what this entire team has done all season long. Hasn’t worked out so well.

    What’s the old saying about doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result?

    warmed up t.miller to throw 3 pitches then replaced him.  okay, whatever.  nice single batter faced, hit the showers.

  • TarzanJoeWallis 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    I believe Leiter has in fact been in high leverage situations in the past, Smyly is a “wily veteran”, and Little has “electric stuff”.

    I’m not eating any of this dog food but I’m guessing that might be the line of thinking.

    Leiter and Neris with ERAs over 4 now

    Both with WHIPs over 1.3

    Those aren't 8th/9th quality

    Just try other guys Couns. It's not going to be worse or any more disappointing. 

    And if Wisdom is being asked to bunt with two on and no one out, then he isn't a HR threat like we need. Don't worry about INF depth. Just try a different hitter. Try anyone. 

    There's nothing worse than paying 237mil to be average (or just below).

  • Dolorous Jon Lester 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    Through poor roster construction?

  • Dolorous Jon Lester 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    Neither has Leiter or Smyly, or Little, each of whom has gotten at least a couple late inning pressure innings

  • TarzanJoeWallis 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    Probably because he hasn’t served in a closer role yet while others have. Not saying that’s a GOOD reason, but it is a reason.

  • crunch 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    "i'm gonna steal that base over there." - everyone

    "lol, k." - cubs catchers

  • TarzanJoeWallis 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    And that’s how you lose games.

  • Eric S 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    Agreed

  • Eric S 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    He had 16 wins last year and now zero wins through mid-June. Crazy. 

  • Dolorous Jon Lester 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    I find myself wondering why Tyson Miller hasn’t become a late inning guy on this team. He’s been about as good as anyone out there since his acquisition.

  • crunch 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    forget that tie game part.  this sucks.

  • Dolorous Jon Lester 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    That plus these catchers plus the two throw over maximum and every single or walk would have been a double 

  • crunch 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    steele denied his 1st 2024 win...again...tie game.  middle of june and waiting for the team's ace first win.

  • Eric S 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    Oof - Lester having to deal with the extra large pizza box bases is a frightening thought. 

  • crunch 3 days 12 hours ago (view)

    woo...shout out juan pierre and eric young.
