    If we carry 8 pen arms, right now we pretty much have Kimbrel, Jeffress, Wick, Ryan, and probably Wieck as a lock. So we have 3 spots up for grabs, and 17 guys in camp vying for those spots (18 if...

    My point is, better to bring him up when he's ready or we're stuck in a corner with not much choice. We have a zillion other other pen arms in camp, give them a shot first. If we need help in Aug....

    I assume Alec Mills will replace him. Bad news, considering Mills has had horrendous years in AAA the last 2 seasons minus his short stint with the Cubs last year.

    Why would you want to begin Carraway's MLB service time on a whim? I wouldn't call him up unless it was vital and basically no other options, like how Nico was called up.

    Maples walks almost a guy per inning. He spent 5 seasons in A-ball because he can't throw strikes. If by miracle he finds some kind of release point and can manage 5 or 6 BB/9 IP he'd be successful...

    Yes fair enough. Brad Brach shouldn't have made 42 appearences for us. I think when you sign middle relief arms for millions of dollars you tend to want to get your money out of them and not just...

    If bullpen arms are a crapshoot, then a bullpen of only 2 months is a massive crapshoot. Looks like the Cubs at least benefit from their strategy of not putting any big money into the pen in the...

    They want to dump salary it seems, not take on. Maybe at the deadline? I'd take him for a couple of months, not more than that. Also, how significant an upgrade is he over Caratini in the lineup? ...

    Contreras should be our DH. It gets him into the lineup everyday. Caratini can catch, and we can carry a 3rd catcher. Contreras could catch once maybe twice a week. I'd rather have his bat in the...

    COVID has been a negative with Byrant's contract situation for the Cubs.

    First, assuming Bryant is still with the Cubs at the end of the season, he'll be really hard to trade until there's a COVID...

    You could DH Caratini or Contreras too in order to get both of their bats in the lineup and keep Schwarber in LF. Probably depends on the matchups and who is hitting well.

    Anyone ever see Barry Bonds hit an in-game HR with an aluminum bat? And then get called out for using an illegal bat (for George Brett-like reasons)?

    Howard seems like Addison Russell with a weaker bat. But Howard seems a lot more mature, which isn't saying much LOL.

    Howard has a major league glove. To be an MLB shortstop you don't have to...

    Sosa was as good as 2 good players that year, literally. Cut Sosa's stats in half and he'd still have 32 HR, 80 RBI, 58 walks...he was ridiculous.

    At 37 y/o Alou hit 39 HR for the Cubs in 2004. He hit over .340 in each his last 2 injury-plagued seasons, at 40 and 41 years old. Dude was such a competitor, great hitter.

    The Dodgers are one of our key rivals in our way to a ring. Whatever makes them weaker is good for the Cubs.
