One has a career 20.4 WAR while the other is 11.3

They need pitching, and I agree, cost controlled

 

 

 

 

Diminishing returns.  :P

Was at the game last night...holy #### I've never experienced wind like that.

We were on the left field porch event area...probably getting the worst of it of anywhere. Girls were hiding behind the couches. We lost 4 hats.

St. Louis SPs - 3.38 ERA

Brewers SPs - 4.42 ERA

Pirates SPs - 4.30 ERA

Reds SPs - It doesn't matter

So Heyward is back tomorrow? I guess we'll find out soon whether or not Happ will be sent down.  Can the Cubs really send him down at this point?

Happ stays, Tommy LaStella goes to Iowa. 

Joe has tinkered with the lineup: Zobrist at leadoff, Schwarber bats 2nd.

Arrieta will get back on track. That is two solid starts in a row. I hope it continues.

The command Arrieta had in 2014 and 2015 has eroded as has his velocity.  Lester still can't hold a runner.  Neither can Jake.  Hendriks' velocity is down as well, what little of it he had.  Lackey is a ##### canoe.  This rotation went dumpster in a hurry.

Reverse psychology.  These other donkeys need to pick it up. The offense finally is.

What happened to Schwarber?  This dude used to roll out of bed and hit.
