That is a reach. I'm honestly hoping Alozay posts another strong start and they do the smart thing and promote him.

They have a revolving door ATM. Just demoted Wick and promoted Norwood. Alozay has a good chance of sticking with his talent.
Exactly my point. Find a closer. You’re blowing games you should be winning. You can’t keep going with this revolving door. Get someone that can close it out.

I know it’s easier said than done. But this is a problem and has been all year.

It's a stretch to say we should have won yesterday's game, having been down 7-0, but with all the miscues and losing by two, it still felt like a giveaway.

But we have lost 2 of the last 5 that we had NO business losing.

They aren’t signing him. If I am the Cubs, I’m looking to grad Kendrick and Doolittle from the Nats. They are tumbling. Both would be nice fits and strop will be back within the week

Pretty sure that the Sox wouldn't mind ripping us off again for Coleme.

It is fine in theory but I would rather let Alozay start another game first. If he again impresses then they should promote him.

Duncan Robinson is on the 7 day and would just reclaim his rotation slot.

Strop from what I read is now pain free and is doing strength conditioning for injury prevention.

So going through this myself that is a every day thing with a PT so I'm thinking maybe a week before he gets a few games in the minors. I would guess June 1 at easiest.

So I could see both promoted together. Bolster the pen and really not put Alozay behind the 8 ball. Demote Zag and Norwood (he looked ok but he is not a keeper)

I don't give a fuck how many blown saves we suffer from this shite bullpen, it's still 1,000x better than enduring LaTroy Hawkins or Carlos "CJ Edwards" Marmol.

As usual, you miss the point. Neither bullpen is world class and can't be depended upon carrying the 2020 Cubs to the world championship

What fucking point dumbass? I wasn’t replying to any topic, just sharing an observation.

Over 21,000 shit-posts from you gramps, calm down.

Keep up the idiot talk. Like Marmol has anything to do with 2020.

Here are 2 words that should scare you: Frank Chance

Cardinal fan assessment of their starting pitching:

What the hell did you guys think was going to happen with this rotation?

One year removed Japan league guy
Untested sophomore starter
Frequent injured shoulder guy
Vet way past his prime
Rookie with awful peripherals in the minors

Good job Mo

I feel the opposite

I do agree it seems better than enduring Latroy Hawkins, but that means very little if they blow games and cost us.
