    Some of Theo's unfortunate decisions since the world series:

    Signed Yu

    Traded La Stella for peanuts

    Chose to ride things out with a stupid piece of shit who never learns from his mistakes

    Signed Descalso instead of keeping La Stella.

    Signed Chatwood

    Traded Eloy and Cease for Q (doesn't seem close to worth it at this time)


    Besides signing Hendricks and Bote to extensions, I can't think of many good things he's done. Somebody help me out if I'm forgetting something. Kimbrel is a positive at the moment, so I guess add that to the list.

    Yeah signing Yu and Chatwood have been bad. The La Stella trade hurts but no one would have saw this season coming for him. I'm torn right now, do we blow this thing up and start fresh with our base of Rizzo, Baez, Bryant, and Contreras or do we continue to try and find some diamonds in the rough and mix in a few low risk veterans and see what happens.

    Oblique for Cole.

    Could be mid-August before he's back.

    Sounds like we said goodbye to Carlos Gonzalez tonight.

    He just couldn't catch up to anything high-speed. He'll have to change his approach if he wants to make a comeback.

    Blow things up? We’re leading the division. Teams go through rough patches. It’s a 162 game marathon.

    Without looking at the numbers I feel like Monty has been complete trash this year. He needs to go start over somewhere new. Let him fulfill his dream of being a starter for a bottom feeder like the Royals or O’s.

    I mean if we fall short again. I’m happy to just make the playoffs, that’s hard to do, plus anything can happen then.

    He's been bad. His peripherals were never great and he was clearly out performing them. He bad

    All things considered the pen has been pretty good this year.

    Chatwood has found a solid role in the pen. It’s clear he isn’t a starter.

    We clearly have a big need for a LHP for the pen. That upgrade could be on the farm or via trade.

    Our biggest issue is rolling out a 6 man battling lineup.

    Cargo had to go.

    Russell, Decalso and Almora are big big issue.

    And this lineup not being able to hit LHP is another terrible problem.

    Waiting on these hitters to reach potential is getting old.

    1st inning and we've got an almora error. Schwarber trying to throw someone out resulting in an extra base , and an uncontested steal.

    I'm not saying he's disliked in the looker room but its hard to deny the drastic fall off in play with the Russell promotion.

    The team was 20-13 when he got called up.

    Since his call up the cubs are 25-28

    Games that he starts we are 10-21

    Games he comes off the bench 15-7

    Yet we trot his under performing ass out over Bote.

    Fuck Madden for keeping him on the field and fuck Theo for not taking him off the ML roster so it stops

    Addison Russell should not be on this team because he's a fucking piece of shit. He's also a fucking worthless hitter and he's topping it all off by being horrendous in the field. So go fuck yourself Addy.

    He needs to go...

    He's the guy filling out these fucking horrendous lineups.

    He's the guy trotting out Addy

    He's the guy who plays Wilson in left field.

    I'm totally fine with him being gone at season end if not sooner. Thanks for the world title... Don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out

    It's the same play even if your at short stop you dumbass Russell. I get it you want to win the game but anything other than a rocket to you, get the out and fight another inning. If he wanted you to go home you would have played in.

    Joe definitely made a thing out of Pittsburgh throwing up-and-in just to try to spark his team.

    He couldn't afford another shitty performance that looked like the previous 3. At least this one would've felt different for fans.

    Of course, Willson loved it.
