    Line up out and Schwarber not in it again. Sounds like Joe has made a decision on Schwarber. He is not a starter. Kind of surprised, actually.

    Come playoff time, when each run will come at a premium against Max and Strasburg, converting in situations like that will be even more important. I'm hoping in October Maddon will be more aggressive in terms of calling for a bunt in certain situations. Too much swing and miss in the lineup.
    Your love for the bunt is amazing. While most of baseball is going away from the bunt, you are calling for more bunts. And also calling it an aggressive move. If anything, bunting is a passive measure. And most likely, not something the Cubs will do much of.

    Maddon pretty much confirmed it I guess:

    Joe just can't help himself. I know I know, he's amazing and best manager evar. BUT, why have Happ at 2d when noodle arm lastella could play there and just put Happ in LF? And honestly, no schwarber? Hopefully his incessant meddling won't cost us a sweep. Go cubbies

    Hopefully that is the 2017 version of The Zobrist Bunt.
