Now the Cubbie Blue Bandwagon is pissing and moaning about Cuzzi’s strike zone—in a game they lost by a touchdown.

Seriously, **** the Cubs, **** their manager, and **** their fans. Go Brewers.

Hamels or no Hamels I still feel that the Cubs are a little light in pitching.

We'll see, I hope you are right. Darvish appears to be close to returning.

Yeah, but what version of Yu Darvish will they be getting?

First, the 6th inning called stikeout of Zobrist, it was a ball. However that same pitch gets called a strike for Hendricks and Lester quite often. And it was close enough to the strikezone that Zobrist should of been swinging. Zobrist was given a very, very, very long leash as he argued so long and vociferously. If a Brewer had argued like that they’d have been tossed. Zobrist was, 2 innings later.

I just wish one of those genius coaches over there would teach Ben Zobrist how to breathe through his nose.

Saw on Twitter where apparently there are more stories out today from mainstream organizations complaining about the call and tracking down umpires to explain it.

The Cubs lost to San Diego and gave up 10 runs...but it was the umpires who lost them the game.

The Cubs lost to Milwaukee by seven runs...but it was the umpires who lost the game.

Jesus!

They added Moustakas, Schoop, and Soria. That's a decent haul and a lot more trade activity than they did last year but it didn't address their biggest weakness which was starting pitching. They have a decent bullpen with Jefress, Hader, Soria (when he comes off the DL), and Knebel. They have a really strong lineup too. The problem is their rotation is filled with #3 and #4 starters. Maybe they can add someone before the waiver deadline but they really could have used one of the available starting pitchers like Gausman, Archer, or Hamels.

Another team to keep an eye on is the Cardinals. They have gotten suddenly hot and have won 8 in a row and are only 4 back now. Amazing how changing managers mid-season can sometimes energize a team. What a novel concept.

I saw yesterday on Twitter where Jamie Nelson, arguably their best starter is not expected back this year after all. That's to bad for them.
