    My point is you should have to play those games. Falling short of not playing should disqualify because they do matter. Double header tomorrow..do it.

    Pretty sure his deal was expiring soon after this season, anyway.

    No, we've played you guys, the Reds, and the Brewers enough for me for only a sixty game season. I'd like to play someone from another division just because it's something different. I think coming into the day we were on track to play the Marlins and I'd much prefer that.

    Make Pujols Player/Manager. That's what the personal service fees in the contract is for, right?

    Hope for everyone's sake LAA doesn't do this with Dombrowski. LAA doesn't need a GM whose strength is acquiring stars. It needs a GM whose strength is filling out a roster with quality players for cheap.

    torn because i’ve liked the majority of his draft picks, but the fact the pitching staff, specifically the bullpen, has been dreadful his entire tenure is hard to ignore

    I think what he did in terms of building that farm system with talented position guys despite never selling or picking very high was impressive. It's impossible to overlook the pitching failures, though, and the Upton signing was bizarre when it happened and looks much, much worse now.

    Considering the way things looked after the first three weeks, it's incredible that all but two games were played this season. And the two that weren't are because of a COVID delay followed by a rainout a month later.

    I'm going to go ahead and guess this Marquez kid isn't going to get much of an opportunity in the playoffs for the Cubs after today's debut.

    Reds can’t hit. 61% of their runs have come via homer. I don’t see them winning. Pitchers can’t give up more than 1 run or they will probably take the L.
