    Honestly? I'd put them down for a solid "B-" nearing a "B". I realize we missed the playoffs, but I think too many things came out of this season to be that down on anything. Let's put it this...

    You missed what I was doing then. I wasn't cherry picking things that I simply "didn't like" (for example, I think we can all agree that Hendricks isn't getting 8 starts while Jackson and Wood rack...

    That 82-80 spot doesn't take into account who we could add come July (which is what my post said). Given our minor league system comparative to the rest, we have a better ability to plug holes.

    82-80 isn't a bad spot considering the ammo we have for the trade deadline to plug holes. Not upset one bit on that.

    It's hard to tell when you mean figuratively or literally when you don't say either. The "IMO" moniker doesn't indicate either. When someone said "no chance", I take them as they're saying we have...

    I disagree. I wouldn't put us in the driver's seat, but we wouldn't still be hearing our name connected if we had "no shot".

    While true, it would be cool if the Cubs could work with the scheduling and see if they could do a double header yearly. Now, the team may not want to because it could be detrimental, but it'd be a...

    He's an iffy case. He's supposed to be good-to-great defensively, and has good makeup, but his plate approach has gotten increasingly worse and he's struggled to a degree last year.

    Well...his low HR total is based on 345 PA's. A full season is 600+ PA's. That'd put him at 20-24 home runs. That's not awful. And his K% isn't that high. It's 22%. That's fairly normal.

    Yeah I assume a patch for the year will be in order.

    Wouldn't it be something if they make the playoffs wearing #14 on them? Something #14 himself never got a chance to do.
