  1. God help us all if it’s not Robert and Madrigal he’s referring to. 95% it’s just Luis Robert, though.

    Except good for years to come now has a defined three year shelf life for Moncada and Giolito, logically assuming next season’s just a .500ish year and sitting squarely on the periphery of wild card contention. The Cubs are currently in Year 5 of their window and still have at least two more years to go before everything falls apart. To make an analogy, it would be like Bryant and Lester both being free agents at the end of this year, essentially. Could the Cubs still contend in 2020 if they (theoretically) lost those two? Well, maybe...if Darvish is for real again.

    Charlie Tilson Optioned to Charlotte

    Scapegoat.

    Tilson optioned

    Where he would go on to have a Piranha-like (think Lew Ford) career and be celebrated for his New Trierness.

    No reason not to play Reed and Collins everyday and see what they have...record doesn’t matter anymore, if it ever did.

    One more month until we get into the heart of the dog days of August. Tough watch without Anderson and Jimenez.

    He almost is as fast as Durham, but he just doesn’t like to steal bases. Not cool to play the game that way anymore, I guess. Robert probably ends up the same way, too much fear of injuries.

    We need fastball hitters. Abreu’s increasingly losing bat speed. Collins would have to massively retool his swing, Reed has a long/extended swing as well. Jose did a good job to pull his hands in and at least make contact, but he’s not driving those mid 90’s and above fastballs in recent weeks. The one I remember was against Boston, but haven’t been following every game this year.

    Without Anderson and Jimenez...and McCann tailing off, we probably have the most boring offense in baseball. Moncada and Abreu are the last two legit hitters remaining (for now.)

    His last 15 games, McCann is down to a 563 OPS, 8/40 in the month of July. Prior to that, 966, 886, 863 over his first three months, pretty remarkable consistency. 2.0 fWAR, on pace for 3.2-3.5 but falling off now.

    If Seattle wins by 4 or more tonight, we’re the third worst team in baseball by run differential but still likely to end up picking 6th-8th next June.

    I miss the days when you’d come up some almost plausible optimistic burns the Sox would have to go on to catch the division leaders. Those days are long gone.

    Getting outscored 3-1 after the ASB, 48-16...

    27th In ERA, 29th in fielding, 23rd In OPS but probably end up getting passed by KC and StL by the end of the day (718 vs 717) to fall to 25th Actually 14th In batting average, highlighting the weakness of that measure But just 28th In runs scored...
