In Topic: Going to Saturday's game... Is it safe to wear a Dempster jersey?

26 July 2012 - 11:30 AM

Lol nice... I'll take your advice and leave it at home this time. I figured it would be too fresh, but nice to have some backing on that thought. Road jersey it is then!

Time for him to go.. He's been steadily getting worse for a long time now.

In Topic: Would you be Ok with the Cubs Rebuilding?

10 September 2011 - 01:37 PM

Even if they choose not to rebuild in 2012 it seems like pitching is still going to be a problem in 2012. I don't have any data that suggest this, but because the FA market for pitching is kinda crappy for 2012 I don't see how they'd shore up the starting pitcher rotation. That's going to make 2012 tough by itself.

It seems like 2012's mission should really be to prep for 2013.

In Topic: Who should the Cubs target this offseason: Pujols or Fielder?

10 September 2011 - 01:27 PM

If the discussion is limited to Fielder or Pujols, I think the Cubs would be better off with Fielder. Signing Pujols to even a five year contract feels a lot like the Soriano deal. He's decent now but declining, and would want tons of Money. Fielder still has some life in him.

If the discussion is "Who at first base?" I say sign Pena for another year, develop the talent we have and go from there.

In regards to the Brewers winning the World Series - I don't know if it's like this everywhere (I'm in Nebraska...) but the Cardinals fans I'm acquainted with seem to hate the Brewers as much as they do the Cubs. Which makes me say "Go Brewers" simply because it pisses them off. And, well, beer... Enough said.

In Topic: Pitching and 2012

I'm starting to wish that the whole Zambrano thing a few weeks back would have gone down a little differently...

In light of what the Cubs are facing next year it would have been nice to hang on to him for another season. Earlier this year (before the all-star break) it seemed like he was the only starting pitcher that could be somewhat relied upon.

But he does have a major attitude problem and that obviously can't be allowed to continue.
