    Happ will get a start for sure against Chicago but we’ll likely have a starter we don’t usually use over the weekend.

    Happy we got back a sweep we got from them earlier. Clearly the Padres are reeling at the right time for us.

    11 games in 11 days. So this is a long stretch of ball. I’d like 5-3 upcoming but 4-4 and I’ll take it. 5-3 would be fab for us.

    Just keep winning. If we do that things will take of themselves.

    Tyler is having a good season. We need to do what he’s been doing and have others help out. Regardless he has turned some doubters around a bit. Now if he can build on that we have a player not only in LF and RF at the plate.

    IMO Jimmy and Scott will get in eventually. Both might be a veterans vote but I think they get in. Both were elite gloves and could hit a bit.

    I mean both played a bit in the roid era. I think that holds them back a bit when it comes to acceptance and numbers. Loved both players.

    Idk what happened in the dugout but with 3 walks in the inning Ponce needs to stfu. He has really been a disappointment where I feel he could be a strength on this team. I always felt he could be a good guy to have in a 7th inning role with the lack of pitches he has but he appears to have the itis when it comes to letting guys on. Right now that is not a good mix for this team. We’ve given him chances to succeed and he has failed about half of them.

    Team is in the 2nd card now. Let’s hope they can keep the momentum going. Idk about tomorrow if we need someone to close it out in the 9th but we’ve got SD coming in and I want this series bad! 15 years in the whales vagina makes it extra special for me.

    Ozuna didn’t live up to expectations but 52 homers and 177 rbi helped us. His fielding was atrocious but he had a solid 2nd season for us. Was it worth it due to the production no but we needed a bat.

    Hated him like most but I would call it a push based upon the production and playoff appearances by both players. Ozuna at least had some playoff games under his belt and he did help us in 2019.

    The fences don’t need to be moved in if your roster construction was a little more well rounded.

    It’s more of a pitchers park. You want to rob from peter to pay paul go right ahead and watch people piss and moan about when the pitching numbers or ERA or FIP go up a half run.

    and willie gmafb! You think a couple of these knuckleheads have the ability to bunt or manufacture a run. Some of these clowns can’t get on base at a .330 clip.

    You can’t leave Lester in there even if it’s against the great Micheal A. Taylor.

    The middle relief was neglected for sure. We didn’t have a for sure guy in that lot..I still feel Ponce can offer in that role but with injuries we really never got to see that.

    Woodford and Oviedo can be interesting guys moving forward but I like getting a 3-4 and trying to role with Jack, Dakota, Milolas and maybe Waino again ( though not sure on waino. They need a starter, lh bat and some bully help off top.

    Cubs are smart for this sportsbook. It’ll keep some fans at and around the park. They’ll not go back to 2010-2014. Where it was great and easy to get a ticket for us fans.

    In the Central it doesn’t take much to get back on top. I think every team other than the Pirates can contend next year. Cubs can too if they spend a little bit. I don’t think they’ll be in the top 3 if they half ass it but it’s an open divison next year depending on what everyone does.

    Cubs can be in the convo in the next couple of seasons depending on how they play it. The fans will mostly stick and with the division open and Milwaukee and to an extent St. Louis a stones throw. their fans will still road dog it up and make things interesting. They’ll not be as bad as the pirates for sure the last 3 seasons depending how they play it.

    The one concern would be Hoyer imo. I don’t know if he’s a VP-ops I’d trust if I’m a cubs fan. He’s always for the most part been on Theo’s tit and idk if I have much trust.

    Knizner hasn’t been given almost no opportunity to show anything. Hitting was to be his strong point with the defense a little behind. So no doubt he struggles due to lack of pt.

    I guess you can go get a starter but with Mikolas, Jack, Dakota and possibly Waino for a return with Oviedo in your back pocket. Kim I don’t think wants to be here due covid and being away from his family but a 2 year deal might get him thinking. It may be a low grade move. I don’t think you can go big with it if you want a top 4-5 minf as a need as well and the bullpen could use an add or 2 and a lefty bat. Joc isn’t coming here because he wants run. That’s the reason he went to Chicago.

    That’s the issue! We have more needs than people want to admit if we want the division in 2020.

    Then again this is all moot if the cba can’t get worked out. I think were in for a work stoppage.

    They need to go after a Minf and a lefthanded bat with some pop.

    I’m sorry Tommy Edman is not the solution to all our problems.

    Shannon was blurting out mindless drivel years ago. It’s his last season I guess. I always liked Rooney.

    Rick Horton is the worst and has been for years.

    Danny Mac is ok but he can schmooze and is a bit robotic.

    Like Edmonds

    Like Thompson

    Flaherty plus we get Hudson back.

    My guess is they won’t play in the FA ss war if assuming we have a season. I could see someone like Marcus Simian on a 3-4 year deal.

    I would grab a starter but we have options if healthy but no way they go top tier to do that.

    Pretty obvi we need a 4th OF.

    I mean what can you sell that brings back anything? You can’t sell prospects due to the fact the minors players we’ve got are at least a year or 2 from being on the roster. If you do that you deplete your minors. I mean on the roster who can you get any value from?

    I think they hold pat. IMO

    The trades have hurt more than the 2017 draft but I get where you’re coming from.

    Right now there’s just no mlb ready talent like in years past. Maybe in a year but right now our AAA talent is lacking IMO.

    I doubt Flores.

    I know Paul Dejong seat is getting pretty hot.

    Can he even muster .200, .300, .400 at this point before the deadline? Christ man he’s something awful!

    That is not a solution! Team should compete but injuries are a part of the game. It’s up to the owners to give us what we need to compete. It’s that simple and they’ve done an average job of keeping us over .500. They should at least do that and see what happens 6 weeks from now.
