    I need to see more wins before the break. We have three good starters, but still need that one guy to put us over the edge as well as bullpen help. I would like back up for Koji as well as a couple,fl more »

    Ok, heres outside the box... The Buccos are interested in Buchholz (Rumors) If this is true, then maybe we toss in another piece and get Josh Bell in return?  We would then lose another 13M next year more »

    Even if you dont loke him as a pitcher, the kid has a great attitude. Takes things in stride and tries to see the best in all situations. Seems like a truly good person.

    Depends on what is offered...Id have to listen if the name Josh Bell was involved,(Rumor of Pirates interested) even if we send a little more than Buch.

    Maddon worked great with a young team. Had them believing they could beat anyone, and that has remained. AF is a great GM IMHO. New Ownership put some $$ into the team, despite little from the fans. I more »

    I always liked the Cubbies. Still hope they win long as its not against us. I think most of us realize that unless we get some resemblance of consistency offensively AND with pitching, were g more »

    Swihart has a BIG weakness and its blocking those balls that pitchers like to bounce. Hes let a bunch of those go by and to the backstop costing us a few runs. They called them a WP, but the pitch was more »

    Why couldnt Holt be an AS? Either Bogey or Holt for me with Betts third. Bogaerts has been more consistent this year offensively and has greatly improved his D. Holt has been a 300 hitter all year in more »

    228. 256. 388 is NOT a decent year in any league. Hes a mediocre 3b and has zero consistency with the bat and will be 27 in sept. Unless hes a really late bloomer, he is what he is. at least Panda has more »
