Good stuff and good command. Deadly* Archived Message

Never got around to making this post especially yesterday freezing my ass off watching what felt like a replay of every home opener I've ever been too. Freezing cold struggling at home vs the Pirates.
I don't get the Matt Duffy and Tony Wolters additions.
Matt Duffy got a long look in spring training and I'm not sure what he did to make the team. Outside of his flukish rookie year it's not as if he's had much of a successful career. And if you want guys to cover first the Cubs have options to do so. I'd have preferred the flexibility of Vargas but this feels more like a clubhouse selection.
Maybe the same with Wolters? I'd have preferred if bringing someone outside they'd have gone with Lucroy. He had experience with the Cubs but maybe that's a negative. Wolters has some better framing history and flexibility to play some middle infield I guess? Also a lefty but he can't hit so I don't see why that matters.
Get well soon Romine.
If you're a pessimist on the Cubs yesterday was everything you'd point to. Hoping that the cold was a major factor. I didn't expect much from the offense in that weather, but the walks were absolute killers from the staff. Can't have that. Need to take Saturday and Sunday's games with the warmer weather. Unfortunately my NL ROY pick got a batting practice pitch from Kyle in the 2nd PA of the game. Was in shock anyone hit a ball out but watching the replay that pitch was pure meat. Can't believe Kyle threw something that poorly.
