Cub fans tell me he has 36 different pitches (35 are called "fastball"), so giving up one won't cause them to cry in their beers.....

Where he's going, they don't need "roads"

Ian Happ starting season at AAA. I remember the worship from the media to start the season with him last year.

I'd take him straight up for Carson Fulmer right now.

This story on the Cubs FO in the athletic is interesting. Basically reads like Theo and Hoyer and going to be micromanaging Maddon all season. Sounds like there's a decent chance that Maddon doesn't last the season if they struggle.

Baez homers twice in a Flubbies rout. Don't think we'll be seeing them fall out of contention this season, hope as we might.

They didn't have any trouble scoring runs today although they actually have a good hitting lineup.

What if the Cubs do not struggle? Did they write about that scenario?

In reading a lot of predictions in the Athletic along with MLB network and MLB network radio, the NL central is all over the place. The entire division is competitive.

While the cub supporters continue to rant how the team is healthy now and even with no off-season moves, they are the best team, no one seems to mention that the entire division has improved. Even the bottom feeder Reds and Pirates are much improved. Another discussion in the Athletic was on Baez. Based on advanced metrics, Baez has no chance in hell of repeating last year, but then again, this is why they play the games.

I'm no Joey the Clown fan but based on this past offseason, it really seems like he's the scapegoat if the cubs fall. I don't feel this is deserved.

I think the ultimate deciding factor on the division is Paul Goldschmidt. That move by the Cardinals made them the favorite (In my opinion).

I also think, while the media and cub fans will be beating their chests on how the cubs beat up on the juggernaut Texas Rangers, the real test is going to be when they play intradivision teams or contending teams.

As a baseball fan, the NL Central and NL East are going to be a lot of fun to watch with the competitiveness.

BASEBALL IS HERE!!!!!

I'll be really curious if they are having issues mid season if the Ricketts' will bite the bullet and go over the Luxury Tax threshold more by trying to get additional talent at the deadline. They, Boston (naturally) and the Yankees (naturally) are over the threshold according to what I read a few days ago.

"The Rangers had 11 hits, but also drew 12 walks. Cubs starter Yu Darvish walked a career-high seven in just 2 2/3 innings, the shortest regular-season start of his career. The Rangers kept the pressure on the Cubs’ bullpen and finally broke through late."

An acquaintance of mine went down to Arlington to visit some other friends, all big Cub fans and to go to the game. His biggest concern before the season started was pitching.
