    No, it’s definitely Schweinsteiger.

    Maybe they should stop testing those that are vaccinated

    That sounds like a great way to increase the COVID spread.

    The odds of the Cubs spending 15 mil or whatever to bring back Rizzo over Schwindel next year is like 0.1%.

    I'd like to see maybe 100 more ABs from him to see if pitchers can figure out any weaknesses of his to exploit, but all the evidence seems to suggest he's very likely the real deal. Not .345 AVG/1.000+ OPS the real deal, but clearly he can hit.

    Yeah, the testing doesn't really hurt anybody. Considering a bunch of players and staff aren't vaxxed they should keep doing it. Maybe they should make the players and staff and who aren't vaxxed pay for the testing.

    I know you are kidding, but the responsibility to provide a safe workspace is on the owners. They need to pay for the testing. They can negotiate with the union to make vaccines mandatory, but based on comments from a lot of players I think the union would agree to a salary cap before they’d agree to that.

    It was good to see the Cubs are mandating that all non-player employees get vaxxed by 10/4.

    Great job by Wicke. Too bad he was on IL for almost all the season. But the back end of the BP wasn't the problem the first 2/3 of the season although July was "the cruelest month" for it.

    Hopefully we'll start losing again when we play good teams. Looks like best case we get the 6th pick
