    Am I the only guy that thinks a hitter that k's 38% of time, and only gets on base at a 29% rate, shouldn't be leading off?

    You are not. With this group they have tonight I would like to see Heyward, Bryant, Rizzo, Baez, Schwarber, Caratini, Garcia and Happ. Or something close to this.

    First Descalso and now Strop to the IL for "excessive sucking". Hopefully Brach is next.

    No but without that guy to put on top, I'm starting to think Maddon prefers to just have a steady 2 thru 6 with his core guys, and dont really care who hits 1st, 7th, 8th or 9th as those seem to be the spots that has the most change up in order and he just mixes them up.

    Kind of a defeatist attitude, don't you think? Let's take 2 of 3 and suddenly the road trip won't be considered that bad.

    Iíve watched this team play/throw away games on the road. Iíll be fine with being only one game back.

    Yea, love a sweep but I'd be satisfied winning both series in Stlouis and Milwaukee..

    Cubs are the worse team on the road, worse then the flippn Marlins right now.. they need to just win these series and go forward from there the rest of the way..
    They haven't won a road series since May in Washington

    Pitching matchups favor the Cubs this series..

    Yu needs to set the stage for Lester and Hendricks with a solid game tonight

    I'm admittedly a little baffled by Maddon's recent trend of throwing guys who aren't good at getting on base in the leadoff spot.

    If they had made this Strop move a week ago, this road trip mightíve looked very different.

    Strop is being placed on the IL with left side neck tightness according to ESPN 1000
