If Puig stands behind the batters box again when in the on deck circle he creates, I hope Darvish lets one get away and beans the prick bat licker. Can't the manager just ask for the umpire to make them move?
He did not even seem to be paying attention to Hendricks, just standing in the way.

So i haven't seen anyone comment on this and it's all speculation but saw some stuff suggesting the reason Zobrist is gone is a marital issue. His wife has scrubbed some of her social media stuff and took down apparently a bunch of pictures from her instagram account with him in it.
I was hoping this would stay out of the forum, Ben asked for privacy and I think it blows that everyone gets to be in their business because of social media. He still used her song for his walk up music, so it must be him.

Not sure what to tell you... I think it's relevant information to know why a player isn't with the team. I didn't go into why they are splitting and I frankly don't give a fuck. I care about him only in so far as he relates to the cubs. And until the "why" of him being gone was answered people are going to wonder when if at all he is coming back.

I have a feeling pitches will get away from Darvish whether he lets them or not.

If he decides to retire now and not return, cubs could use that money on a closer

Its nice to see Almora getting a regular stint in CF. He's not hitting great but he's doing enough to warrant keeping his glove in the game. He makes playing CF look sooo easy.

Apparently Joey Votto needs to swing twice as far as Kris Bryant to get a check swing strike. :)

Two outs, nobody on, 0-2.....I was about to say something positive about Darvish, but decided I better wait.

Watching MLB At Bat. Turned on the Cincy broadcast, and they have Joe Morgan in the booth.

He's still an ass.

Ten K's in 5 innings is good. But we will need a lot from the pen tonight.

Let's score a few.

Edwards pitches one inning gives up a HR and lowers his ERA for 13 to 11.
