    Rizzo

    I'm sorry for starting a meaningless threat about the Cubs, but I just had to vent. Cubs down by five with 2 outs vs the Nats, Bogusevic singles to left to load the bases. But wait, Rizzo on 2nd, down by 5, decides it's a good idea to think about scoring his meaningless run. He gets hung up between 3rd and home, rundown, game over. Guess he never learned about never making the 1st or 3rd out at 3rd base.

    I'm sure glad the Cubs locked Castro and Rizzo up to long term contracts so I get to enjoy these airheads for years to come.

    Re: Rizzo

    did you ignore the fact that he hit 2 home runs today?

    I did. I'm giddy because he raised his batting average to .226.

    He's slumping, but you're pretty uninformed if first base is a position you're worried about in the future.

    Re: Rizzo

    Wouldn't be TOOOO shocked if the Cubs traded him for some players. Dan Vogelbach is just a freak with a bat and I think be could be better than Rizzo.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Same with Castro. We have a future second basemen with Alca-whatever and Baez and Bryant on the left side, Castro and Rizzo could bring in some good players because of their contracts. It'll never happen but cool to think about.

    I don't think either has a position other than 1B so something has to give eventually.

    I don't think anybody is going to touch Castro anytime soon after his off the field problems and recent performance. Or at least give back anything meaningful in return.

    Re: Rizzo

    He ranks 13th among firstbasemen in WAR and he just turned 24. I think he'll be fine.

    Re: Rizzo

    Maybe we can deal him for a past his prime star with an atrocious contract. Oh wait, that's what the old management would have done. Have a little faith in Theo and company; I think they know what they're doing.

    Because 3b is so terrible for fantasy, most teams start at least 2 first basemen.
