I dislike Quintana
Suck it, Hurdle, you bloated rotting corpse
Anyone watching the game tonight?
This dude looks like a mini Pedro Martinez. His stuff is filthy
Its mid July and Brach and Rasario are still a thing in this pen.
And Bote continues to kill us with his defense at 3B. Not to mention his bat has been shit for awhile now. He needs to heat up or go sit for awhile.
Shitty defense is back for the Cubs.
Rizzo missed a pop up, next pitch was a shot down the 3rd base line
So what happens with 3 catchers on the roster after willy comes back. Is Caratini trade bait?
I am Theo Epstein
But for real I hope Willy’s injury is nothing serious. I’d imagine Maldonado is more of an insurance policy than anything but would feel much better if he’s back in the lineup in the next couple days.
Also thanks for getting the biggest out in the history of the franchise, Monty. Was a good run but definitely time for a fresh start.
Yup. Always gonna love him for that
Didn’t see the Contreras to the IL news until after making that post. Welp.
Sounds like Theo really shoehorned this.movement
Thank you Monty. Forever thankful for your time as a cub.
Seems like Edwards is close to returning.
So hopefully we will be rid of Rosario soon enough
Seems like a steep price to pay for a third string catcher.
Monty asked to be traded.
Ok well that doesn't mean you have to trade him for a guy that you'll probably DFA when Contreras gets healthy
I'm not sure what kind of value you think he has. We probably could have gotten more but we needed a catcher for the time being.
He’s apparently really good at pitch framing and calling the game. Cubs tried to sign him in the offseason but he wanted the chance to start. He’s going to have some value to the Willy and the staff even if he’s not playing.
I doubt he’s getting DFA
He has the same wRC+ as Tyler Chatwood. On a team that has trouble hitting, I just don't know how he plays. Victor Caratini is hitting the shit out of the ball this year and is a plus defender.
Just an incredible at bat by Heyward there.
Also, another great start by Darvish. Hopefuly this is the Yu we get going forward.
Is this gonna be his first win at Wrigley as a Cub this year?
Not just this year, as a Cub entirely.
Hopefully we’ll start the tanking now
Both Russell and Bote get bailed out by terrible defense.
Willson still on track to return after his IL stint? I know they said he was going to start taking some hacks again on Friday. Haven’t seen or heard any updates though.
No updates because I think it's foregone that he's coming back when eligible.
He was taking BP today and tossing with Cole.
Theo said he’s expected to come off when the IL expires
Cubs are getting healthy boys.
Cole and Wilson should be back soon
Edwards just off the IL
Send down Russell and bring up Happ
Get Morrow healthy for a September run
Let’s go baby
And Addison Russell is still a POS human who sucks at baseball.
Baez continues to be the fucking man.
God, release him already
This whole Addison experience was idiotic from the jump
Man... sometimes you REALLY need to add a comma
Addison and Almora both need to be sent down and figure out whatever the fuck is needed.
Addison is barely hitting and his defense and base running are puss poor. The latter two are what keep him on this roster.
Almora is garbage at the plate and I’m not sure his glove is enough to keep him in the lineup anymore.
Bring up Happ to play CF and let Robel start at 2B. Stop giving punting on 1/3 of the lineup every day.
My guess is the only reason Russell is playing is we are trying to increase his stock and trade him. I just don't know who we go after to get improvement without blowing up our farm system, and i don't know if that's really what we want to do this year, I just think without making some major moves we are at best the 4-5th best team this year.
Addison needs to be cut from the team bc he's an awful person.
Went to the game today. Hot as shit bit a super fun game. Wish we could have pulled one of the last two games out, but we're a sure below you all right now
I don’t think there is a single sane cubs fans who wouldn’t prefer we just cut that bitch.
At minimum he should be sent to AAA.
I think we are a very good team and can win it all.
Need to add an elite LHP for the pen. Before the Giants got hot I thought Will Smith would be a fantastic option.
Adding a vet bat to help off the bench against LHP.
I say around about 20 who disagreed today
Fuck those people..
This guy is a horrible Detroit beat writer, but he's a homer so maybe he gets some tips from time to time.
We could use another bat that can hit lefties and he’s mashing left handed pitching this year so the fit makes sense. Not the first time we’ve seen Castellanos linked to the Cubs and Theo has history of dealing with the Tigers so I could definitely see something getting done.
Probably won’t take some of the better cubs prospects to nab him.
Feels like one or more of Hatch, Abbott and Lange will be on the move soon
That seems like a big price for Castallanos.
Let’s hope more is coming the Cubs way
Carl sent down. Wick called back up.
Wick has been fantastic in the minors recently.
Funny how they have no issues with using the minor league options on Carl but somehow Russell and Almora are on this team.
And lets not even dive into why Daniel Delcaso is on this roster. With his 5 july ABs to this point
