    I can't believe all the love for the DH in the NL.

    I hate the idea.

    You're on the field you should swing the bat.

    What's next... designated hitter for your defensive shortstop? It's silly....

    Wada gets pulled early because he had a few bad outings 3rd time through the order. He was in complete control of the game last night in my opinion.

    Hendricks is okay but I don't know if he can...

    Seriously? Have you seen them both pitch?

    Wada's stuff looks better to me and he has more poise. Is it his age that bugs you? Maybe Hendricks can get better and Wada has peaked but I'd rather...

    Really? Wada is the worst in the rotation? He was good enough to take Wood's spot. And, in my opinion, he's better than Hendricks this year.

    I don't think he shoudl've been taken out but I...

    Castro for DeGrom straight up would be a steal for the cubs. IDK how people value Castro over one of the best young arms in MLB.

    I would even toss in another top100 prospect to land him... maybe...

    I'm confused by this BABIP stat and what you are saying.

    Is it that Bjax needed more time in the show and he would've been just like Bryant? Or that Bryant and BJax are same talent level and one...

    I don't know what all those numbers mean but I do know that Bryant passes the eye test.

    If Rizzo can hit 300 so can Bryant.

    Plus, these projections are based off of him this year? Or going...

    Petco is a pitcher's park.

    Plus, teams don't travel well when they cross multiple time zones usually.

    But more than that the ballpark doesn't set up well for the kinda bats the Cubs have......

    Time for the West Coast Swing.

    I am sensing a lot of 1-run games coming up and the Cubs losing 2 out of 3.

    I know the Pads are under .500 but at Petco they sure are dangerous.

    I'm liking this guy the more I read about him.

    I know they don't normally take pitchers but... just not seeing bats out there.

    Well,

    Medina doesn't seem like anything special. He's a bit old (26) but maybe Bosio can help him out.

    Either way, he should make this team better and be better than Schlitter or Jackson. ...

    Well, if they care about a guy struggling in the short term maybe they will be overly impressed when a guy mashes it in the short term too.

    I don't want to trade Baez. I don't think he's a...

    Wow big news on Castillo!

    Can't wait to see who we got from them. I will miss him but I hope he gets a fair shot at starting for the Mariners... I have no clue who is ther catcher.

    I think .280 is about where he should be this year... maybe the mid .275s. Next year he should have no problem hitting .300 though. The kid has a great eye just as good as Rizzo's and look at him...

    So far no harm and no foul.

    Shaky at spots and amazing at others.

    I don't know why but these games lately have felt like tense nailbiters... almost playoff-esque.

    C'mon Arrietta you can do...

    This seems like a really good idea to me.

    I've always liked Mark Buehrle and he's a Chicago guy through and through. I have no doubt he'd pitch much better than what he's doing right now if he...

    It's crazy how a few weeks changes things. I was pretty high on Rizzo as 1 and Bryant as 1a but he's looking more like a 2 right now. Just in order of how I think their careers will pan out.

    Let's make it 7 in a row!

    I loved seeing Wood in the bullpen. His stuff just fits so much better there. And I'd love to give Wada another crack at the rotation... can't really go any worse, can...

    Hamels wouldn't be my first choice as a trade target. I'd want someone that is similar in age.. a Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Carrasco, Zimmeran, etc... 23-29 years of age so we get some years out of...

    He has no defensive value. Slide Russell back into his natural position and bring up Baez. I don't think you'll lose much production wise with Baez/Russell vs a Russell/Castro MIF. MIF just don't...

    Seriously?

    All this team is missing is another veteran SP and a good RP. Castro could give us those.

    Sure I may be thinking a bit too positive but I think if we had some pitching then the Cubs...

    I'm not a fan of Russell at #2 either. 6 is a better spot for him. I can see him gaining confidence and ideally I'd love to see him put 4 and Bryant 2 with Rizzo in the middle. Castro in the 5 is...

    If you had to choose one to keep, Russell or Castro, which would it be?

    I'd take Russell in a heart beat. Think about the haul the Cubs could get for...
