The problem with Liriano is that he (still) wants to strike everybody out all the time rather than use his stuff to put the ball in play, you know, actually pitch.

The Cubs will throw their hat in the ring with Ryu, just like they did with Darvish, to make it look like they're strategic players to affect the market, but in the end, they won't land him unless there's a freak chance he falls cheaply.
Liriano is the perfect "Malholm" type that they'll want to fill-in the blanks with Garza and Samarjesus--him and Rodrigo Lopez, of course.
Unless I'm completely mistaken, but based on last week's forum call with Thedson Eploeder, the Cubs are mailing-in 2013 (again) in trying to lock the over/under for losses at 92.5, and praying for anything better than fifth, which is now last place.
The only great part about it this time around is that they're being completely honest and have curbed the stiffy manager's yap-yap-yappy mouth.
God love you guys for still caring.
I give Theo credit for not caring about anything else accept "the plan." Microeconomics is great, but not at the expense of the macroeconomics.
Nudge me when it's proven that the Cubs will for sure be playing meaningful baseball on, or later than, October 15th, 20??.
You can then wake me up when it's time for the Fall Classic.
Anything less is BS anyway at this point.
There are two factions of Cubs fans. Ones that live it, and ones that only visit it. The former are incredulous, while the latter are the problem.
