When will Cubs fans ever learn?
Seems that the front office is doing a great job, maybe we'll never have to learn...
Nice first at bat.
+1
I think most of the AB's in his short (minor league) career were nice...which is why I said...
Baez who acc. to some is the teams' THIRD best hitting prospect...

Yay. Here goes another season. Wake me when its over.
It's not over, but you should wake up now, as they're in middle of segue from the rebuild (and multiple 90+/100+ loss seasons) to becoming a dynasty...

I have not watched them this year. Are they like in second or third? How many games over .500?

Since May 15th they are one game over .500, but this year isn't about the record it's about development... To this point they have never had Rizzo, Castro, Soler and Baez in the same lineup - let alone Bryant...
Check out stats for Arietta 28, Hendricks 24, Castro 24, Rizzo 25, Soler 22, and minor league stats for Baez 21, Alcantara 22 and Bryant 22. The bullpen core of Grimm, Ramirez, Strop, Rondon, who are all young too are all under team control for a while... They do have the $20-$25 million to sign an ace and still have a very low payroll...

Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Not excited about their last 6 games, but aren't you excited that they're playing 2 games in Cleveland next year?
(sshhh maybe they want/need a higher draft pick next year as well, so it's actually good if they lose this year)

Chances of it working out are slim, but if I can go to a game with family and the other will have a DO I'd be a happy camper - especially if the next year Cubs play to their talent level (which would be either leading the division or close)...

Almost a nono, but a CGSO 13 SO 1h1w, still not a bad night...

How does this translate into next year? What should we expect from them next year? Better than .500?
