Default Not sure if any of you guys are baseball fans....

But I greatly enjoyed the home run derby tonight with my girl! Tomorrow is the All Star game and i'm stoked. Last year was a great game. Pitcher's duel again!
Does anyone remember the play marlon byrd made for the 2nd out in the ninth I believe, when he let the ball drop, spun around and threw ortiz out at 2nd? Sorry. I'm just a die hard baseball fan.

That sucks. With all the resources the cubs have they shouldn't suck every year. There is some SERIOUS front office issues going on. They dish out big contracts to overrated players. Not that Pujols is overrated (i hope he resigns with the cards for $220 mill or so), but nobody is worth 300 million. When A-rod got that contract 50 hr seasons weren't anything to bat an eye at. Now it seems ridiculous. People were expecting him to be Bonds lite into his 40s, because it was normal. Soriano is sitting on the bench for gods sake.

Well....if you look at it on paper, they don't suck that much. They had the best record in the NL in 2008 and went to the postseason the year before that too. But yes, they got swept both years and idk what went wrong. They should have a clean house by next year with most big contracts out of the way. Rammy and fukudome at least.

I agree that soriano....man....his number decline every year. Ever since we got him. Not a good choice. Our kids though, have been working this year, castro and barney. And marmol is a killer all the time. We'll see though.

They need to fire everyone in the front office. It's not the players, its the decisions with contracts.

Yeah, I remember that play. Byrd is pretty solid in the field, for sure.

He doesn't sit on the bench. He plays pretty much every game. He does, however, get pulled in late innings for defense at times because he sucks in the field.

I like some of the young guys we have. Too bad we traded away some of our best prospects recently, though. It'd be nice to get rid of some bloated contracts. Fukudome definitely makes more than he's worth, as does Soriano (obviously). Aramis would be overpaid next year, but he is honestly the best free agent 3B available so we'll see what happens with that. The Cubs' biggest problem this year has been injuries. But, even if they had stayed healthy they'd still probably be only .500 or slightly under. The way they have shuffled starting pitchers around all year its no surprise that they're SP ERA is the worst in the majors.

On topic: the HR derby was pretty good this year. Kinda made me chuckle that 3 of the guys in it are on my fantasy team (Cano, Gonzalez and Bautista). I'll be watching the All Star game tomorrow, too. I kind of wish Ramirez had accepted the invite to play 3b. He's honestly the best 3B in the NL right now (considering he has been basically the best hitter in baseball the past few weeks). Hope to see Castro get in there and do some damage with the bat. Not looking forward to watching his defense much, though.

I agree on everything you said. Rammy is the best free agent for 3B but he does get paid a lot and eats up the payroll. The pitchers...man....every one of them have missed a start due to injury. Wells and Cashner looked great but went on the DL after the first start. Oh well.

Ramirez would've come but they asked him sunday and he said he already had plans with his family, which is understandable when they live down in the DR. Castro will get better defensively over the next few years, hopefully. He's only 21, lol.
