    Now that the season is over

    With as awesome as Ruth was as a player, imagine how much more devastating he could have been if he took care of himself in the slightest. If had half of Gehrig's humility, he might have owned every hitting record ever and still have a good number of them. He might have even won a triple crown...

    Now that the season is over

    It's a variation of the "broken windows" theory. When players have to care about little things like personal appearance then other things like hitting the cut off man, tagging up, running out a grounder become second nature as you drill those things in the Spring. Going back to football, the...

    I Like Ross, but the Cubs need Girardi

    Maybe an off day with no baseball? I know MLB doesn't like announcements like a hiring on days of games.

    I didn't say that's what I want. I said that's what I thought they'd do. So please just stop with the "Please just stop." until I say what I'd want that you disagree with.

    My guess is they'd put Baez at 3rd, Nico at SS, and either Happ or a traded for player at 2nd.

    Gleyber Torres

    It's done them wonders the previous 5. And there's no such thing as set up for the next 5 years now in baseball. The Cubs are not losing any significant players to FA. Maybe the Cubs go back to drawing board. Maybe they re-load.

    Gleyber Torres

    Tell that to the people from 100 years before then. Torres doesn't even make the majors until 2018. And ask Dodger fans how it feels to be good for a long time but no title to show for it.

    MLB Playoffs IGT

    You know who the unhappiest person is right now? Bryce Harper.

    Hence why I said I was pulling your leg and it was not a serious suggestion. KC showed you can win it all with great D and a solid bullpen. Cubs won it with a lot of luck and a mix of everything.

    I Like Ross, but the Cubs need Girardi

    Here's an idea for somebody to be looked at for a position on the Cubs. Brent Strom is a little bit up there is age, 71, but maybe his assistant pitching coach. Those guys are getting good results.

    So, trade Bryant, go big for Cole, and maybe see if they can trade for another good starter? I'm just pulling your leg. Not saying this is your suggestion. And I could play with some payroll numbers to make it possibly plausible. It does help that Soto is hitting great and they have 2-3 guys...

    Maybe?

    Now that the season is over

    Well, considering the original post was asking what we thought the Cubs "should" do and not "would" do, harmless speculation about the front office moves was the topic of discussion. It doesn't take Sherlock Homes level observation skills to point of the 3 most glaring weaknesses of the team and...

    Now that the season is over

    I've been calling Merrifield "Merriman" for a while now and mix the names up. Dyslexia can be a bitch along with typing hundreds of names a day. Forgive me. And guess what, changes will be made. At the very least a new manager. So now that you got your change, you can't complain anymore. You...

    Now that the season is over

    That will be one of the big question for this team going into next season. Darvish and Schwarber had huge 2nd halves and it'll be a gamble to hope that becomes their norms. I have a little more hope for Schwarber if they just keep him out of the lead off spot. Darvish I think is simply a health...
