I'm not hatin. Dont blame Cubs management. It's a stupid loophole to begin with. It'd just be funny if they got red hot in September and end up missing the playoffs by a couple games.
Means nothing. We aren't supposed to be in it this year anyway.
Everyone so focused on 12 games of Bryant, but Russell won't be up, Schwarber won't be, Theo still has room to add a #2 Starter either at the deadline or the off-season, and then he'll have room for one more big contract the following year.
This is the start, not the middle, not the end, just the start. The roster isn't even fully constructed yet. People are in such a rush to either crown them, or call them failures. The team isn't even fully assembled yet.
Next year, the pressure of expectations can begin. This year is about finalizing the core and stepping forward. Adding the #2, making the right pick on one final top 10 pick, and getting the rest of the young guys thru Triple A, into the majors.
All that means infinitely more than 12 April games.
