    I hope there's no DH this year because we have nobody and no money.

    They said today no dh, no 7 inning double headers, and no ghost runner in extra inning, 10 playoff teams

    It'll be normal baseball for 162 that starts Feb 17

    We’ll see. They changed the rules on opening day last year. Plenty of time for changes.

    Agreed.

    That's assuming the Cubs are trying to win as many baseball games as they can in 2021...which is quite obviously not the case.

    I wonder if he was priced out of the Cubs reach or if they are shopping around the $5-$7 million mark. Would be nice if they could afford someone decent, though I doubt it.
    I thought that maybe a team would take a flier on him and sign him to a minor league deal.

    Although fairly new, I don't think that the success rate is even remotely good after having Thoracic outlet syndrome surgery. I haven't heard of anybody coming back the same as they were before the surgery.

It was more the way you put it that made it seem somehow Mills belongs in the top tier where as Williams is in a below one; at best those 2 are in the same teir. They're almost assuredly starting in the rotation and will turn starts in, but they are both guys who can easily be pulled later and trash heaped, sooner if they're awful.

    He might go 3rd. I hesitate to call him the #3, it's more semantics and "someone has to pitch third". There's probably an equally good chance Trevor Williams and his experience gets to be the "guy who pitches third", anyways. However, after Davies they're all just "guys who start". Most of them you can add the word "poorly" at the end.

    Yep. Where they pitch in the rotation is really not terribly important. That said, I can't imagine Hendricks and Davies following each other. Being very similar style pitchers, Ross needs to break them up. At least 1 and 3, and maybe even 1 and 4 to keep them out of the same series at times. But at that point, it's all a crap shoot. I'd say that they go 1 and 3.

    Interesting, according to Rosenthal, Nelson Cruz was considering the Dodgers or Braves if the NL were to of gotten the DH but when it was decided it wasn't happening for this year, he signed back with the Twins

    Sounds like nobody wanted to give him a multi year deal. It's rough out there if players are struggling just to get 2 year deals yikes
