First, it was the lack of crowds. Then it was the lack of video and it seemed like mildly inclement weather would be the next excuse espoused by Javy Baez for his lack of production. Fortunately, it appears he listened to our pod last week and eased the throttle back on the Cubs’ excuse machine before it got completely out of control, spewing bullshit in every direction, led by Baez and enabled by his manager, David Ross.
Kris Bryant and Ryan Tepera for Joey Bart would serve the #SFGiants and #Cubs very well | #MLB's hypocrisy exposed once again as Javy Baez is fined for showing emotion on the field while MLB markets the shit out of it | Cubs maximize an asset and A's gain a legendary cult hero with Andrew Chafin trade | The Jesus Lizard shockingly dealt to Miami for expensive rental, Starling Marte | Dallas Keuchel struggles versus lefties has him feeling like he's pitching on Mars, but is that a bad thing? | Rick Hahn has #WhiteSox fans worried he's overplayed his hand being TOO patient waiting for the trade market to come to him while the supply of bullpen arms and middle infielders dwindles | Miguel Cabrera passes Barry Bonds on the all-time hits list and inches closer to 500 home runs | #Tigers Eric Haase and Akil Baddoo emerging as serious Rookie of the Year contenders at the expense of division rivals | If MLB is really worried about viewership numbers being down they could simply lift their fucking ridiculous blackout policy | Know your history, kids — comparing Shohei Ohtani and Babe Ruth is lazy and an injustice to both #CubTogether #ChangetheGame #DetroitRoots #ResilientSF #RiseandGrind #MakeItMajor
