    Yep. Jim Frey was such a terrible GM. They won the division in 89, but that was Dallas Greens team. The drafts they had while Frey was in charge are probably the worst in team history.

    The trade itself was bad but Palmeiro was getting shipped somewhere. The Cubs had Grace and then there’s the Sandberg issue...

    It was about the Sandberg stuff. Palmeiro was a LF his three years with the Cubs, and ultimately a better player than Grace.

    Would it be bad form to complain about the slow start the Cubs have gotten off to in baseball reference's simulated season?

    Lol.

    Honestly haven’t paid any attention to it.

    How bad a start is it?

    10-15.

    Q with an 8.00 ERA. Lester at 6.50. Contreras hitting .150 or something like that.

    Rizzo struggling.

    Happ and Heyward exactly where you'd expect them.

    Bryant and Baez bangin', though.

    Good thing it's not real!

    Honestly, that's pretty true to life. Rizzo has historically been a slow starter. I expect big things from KB this year. Lester's best days are behind him. Yes, that's very true to life.
