    Anyone know anything about Frank Batista? I see he has been very good at AA. He was the closer throughout his minor league career, but this is the first time the team is starting him. 17 innings with...

    A possible injury to a pitcher while batting or running the bases is just another reason to go with the DH in both leagues Definitely not the main reason, IMO. To me both leagues should have the same...

    You mean Hammel is due for some pitching luck. Or more accurate, he is due to pitch a game where he does not have bad luck. He has not been bad this year. He has just pitched in bad luck. If he...

    He is not fine. He is struggling another inning. This game needs to be put in the win column. He needs to step it up.

    We are just going to have to disagree here. You are using one good year of Ramirez and Rondon and now crowning them as good relief pitchers. Strop too, for that matter. Except he has been decent a...

    OK, so Maddon uses Strop in the 6th. Then what? Who pitches the 8th? Strop is not going 2 inning and then Rondon 2 innings. If Strop goes in the 6th then in the 8th they might be using a guy that...

    I think this statement was true for last year. And it might be for this year as well. However, a bullpen really is a year in and year out proposition. Middle relief pitchers really are not...

    Not really a fair question. The biggest problem with Hawk is he is the play by play guy. Color commentators can get away with being an over the top fan(See: Ron Santo) A play by play guy is supposed...

    IMO at 8-7 this team is playing exactly to it's ability. They are a solid team but they have roster flaws. First of all it is time to get rid of Castillo and get an extra infielder or outfielder on...

    I doubt it. I think they give him a QO so they get a 1st rd pick back and then sign a FA pitcher that was given a QO, losing a first rd pick. Sure the pick they get back will be lower than the one...

    This is who you consider a lot younger and a lot better than Hamels? You forgot to add a lot more expensive when the Cubs have to sign him next year, or lose him. And of those 3 the only one I can...

    You are absolutely correct. That is why I said "might" have gotten the call. But I think it is also ridiculous for people to just discount pitch framing like it is just some random luck that certain...

    I know. Just making a point to some who feel pitch framing is overrated and how it only comes into play maybe 2 or 3 pitches a game. Friday those pitches might have been very important.

    Actually Montero should have started Friday's game. They win with a better pitch framer that day. 2 homers after 2 pitches not called a strike, that maybe would have been called a strike with Montero...

    People might not hate Castro here, but several undervalue him. A young controlled SS who gives you a 2.5 to 3.0 WAR is extremely valuable at his salary. And so many want to deal him because Russell...
