If you are in win now mode, I'm OK with it...the Cubs are already overcrowded at infield...when Bryant comes back, it's hard for me to picture a starting lineup...Bryant, Baez (Russell to the DL), Murphy, and Rizzo? You still have Bote, La Stella, and Zobrist as utility guys.

I hope Darvish gets healthy for the playoffs. He felt something wrong In his arm the other day. Pulled after 1 inning. Rehab start in South Bend.

I don't think the Cubs are either, which is why they signed Hamels.

Which has turned out tremendously so far...he's the hottest hand in the rotation. Montgomery going to the DL certainly doesn't help though...It would be nice to get Yu back, and push Chatwood out of the rotation

Hamels is awesome so far for the Cubs. I’m not surprised.

I think this trade means Bryant is done for the year, and I hope I'm wrong.
Baez slides over to 3rd and Murphy takes over 2nd

Donít say that. I hope not.

I know Cubs management wonít say everything or how bad Bryant and Darvish injuries are. I think they tried to rush them back too soon.

Darvishís Velocity was good the other day but he felt something wrong in his arm.

It sounds like it's official now...Posted onto the Cubs Twitter.

Murphy apparently has experience at 3rd as well...Murphy at least gives you a consistent bat, if he takes over at 3rd. Bote has been great, but he may come crashing back down to earth...Murphy at least gives you a more viable long term solution at 3rd if Bryant has to stay out.

Darvish is done this year and god forbid he needs Tommy John surgery again then you can kiss his ass goodbye for next year as well. If so then pretty sure they pick up Hammels option next year.

Baez will play 3rd before Murphy or Bote imo.
Bote has come back down to earth, isnt he like 0-16 last few games?

I know it’s easy to say it now after he’s injured. Lol. But they fucked up signing that guy.


Arrieta and his agent fucked up too.


I thought Darvish had a triceps problem. Not his elbow.

Darvish was best pitcher on the market.
Several teams were after him.
Cubs offered Arrietta 4yrs about 25 million per year 2 years ago and he refused.

Yeah, with work, I haven't been following super closely...distinctly possible. I'm sure once there was some scouting reports on him, pitchers were going to figure him out. It was only a matter of time...now what will really be the test, is if he can plug the holes, and become consistent. Worst case, he's a solid utility guy behind Zobrist and La Stella.

I know. That’s why I said Arrieta and his agent fucked up. They got greedy. Holding out to test the free agent market.

What are the Phillies paying Arrieta, like 3 year 75 million?

Very disappointed in the Sox game
Damn rain ruined the kids 1st start.
At least he got the nerves out of the way.

I donít think itís fair to say that yet. Shutting him down now, protects their long term investment. He wasnít a one year rental, he got a multi year deal, and if I were the Cubs Iíd want him healthy before rushing him back, like they did earlier.

Rushing who back? Darvish? They took more than enough time and treated him like the glass figurine he is.

Also, I was watching the Sox game over the Cubs last night just to check out Kopech. What an exciting kid to watch, I really think he's gonna be a stud!

We don't know what the true injury was, as it was kept hush hush....we don't know how serious/not-serious it was. Arm issues on a multi-million dollar pitching investment HAVE to be treated extremely carefully. With Darvish, it's a long term investment. If there's ANY indication that he's not 100%, I have zero issues with the Cubs/training staff shutting him down.

Neither do I, but it sure seems like they did this the right way. He's been down since what, May? And he didn't pitch again until July where he started off by throwing 12 pitches. Then I think a week later he threw like 20ish pitches. He kept saying he felt great and I'm sure the Cubs had their doctors clear him. They moved forward with his rehab VERY slowly.

I guess I'd be more supportive of Yu if he wasn't such a mental softie.

I was happy they pulled the kid after the rain delay. Gives him a confidence boost and also a hunger to get back out there and prove himself. With all the kids coming up in the next few seasons, things will be exciting in the South Side. I assume Eloy is next whether it's this season or next.

Followed by Cease and Robert. Cease ends this season in Charlotte and Robert in Birmingham would be my guess.
