Let's face it peoples

Written by , Posted in General

.!. Joe will likely offer a more analytical article soon about tonight’s Cubs game. What I want to comment upon now is the fact that we haven’t looked too good recently but all is not lost. It isn’t even June first and the Cubs are within four games of first. Are we playing good ball? Of course not, it’s been a while since I’ve seen an offense as anemic as this one. Three runs in twenty-seven innings in a crucial series is nothing less than under whelming. Our offense isn’t even going through the motions, it’s sleep-walking. So what should […]

I looked at the following numbers, after taking out any season where he didn’t see 500 plate appearances, including this season. Year wOBA EQA WARP RC/G OPS+ 1998 0.323 […]

Mark DeRosa available?

Written by , Posted in General

John Heyman of Sports Illustrated oregon – out of the woods mp3 download Deal trailer reports that Cleveland has DeRosa on the market; allegedly they’re looking for pitching in return. I’d like to see the Cubs jump all over this; despite DeRosa’s mediocre 2009 numbers I’d say he’s worth parting with a decent minor league pitcher. DeRo is a free agent after this year and I’d bet his numbers would jump if he returned to the Cubs dugout. He’d be a good guy to give a $6M/2 year extension to as well, solid insurance at third in the event that […]
