DJ LeMahieu Should Be Getting Starts Over Darwin Barney

At worst, LeMahieu should (have) be(en) several games in a row this month to show what he can do at second base. At best, he should be the favorite to win the 2B job next Spring.

He’ll be considered for managerial openings anyway, but he could have extra value in Chicago. Carlos Pena disagrees with Mike Quade, Starlin Castro isn’t happy, and folks are still coming to Wrigley Field.

Ryan Dempster Still Not Ready to Commit to 2012 Cubs and Other Bullets

Mike Quade “needs” Carlos Pena and Aramis Ramirez in the lineup, the Cubs’ bullpen corps and minor league relief corps are stacked, Tony LaRussa laughs, and Ryne Sandberg is getting promoted.

Enhanced Box Score: Astros 1, Cubs 2 – September 17, 2011

To be the worst, you have to lose to the worst. So, I guess the Cubs aren’t the worst.

Darwin Barney Playing “Real Well” of Late and Other Inaccurate Bullets

Darwin Barney Playing “Real Well” of Late and Other Inaccurate Bullets

If “real well” means a .600 OPS, then I agree. Matt Garza is having a good year, the Cubs’ bullpen is getting taxed, and DJ LeMahieu hearts the bench.

Hoping the Cubs Can Grab Logan Morrison in the Offseason and Other Bullets

Hoping the Cubs Can Grab Logan Morrison in the Offseason and Other Bullets

The Marlins’ outfielder is likely to be dealt, and the Cubs should sprint to the Fish. Kerry Wood will probably play next year, but he wants folks to ease up on Andrew Cashner. Bryan LaHair’s versatility will help his case for a 2012 roster spot.
