Dreamcast 70: This Game Will Drive You Crazy

In by Rice Cube106 Comments

RC, AC, SVB & berselius hang out as the Cubs were crapping the bed against the Tigers (but they did win the finale and the series) to ponder the state of the Cubs. Topics include:

  • The pitching situation, what with Drew Smyly sucking and Marcus Stroman with a weird injury;
  • Whether we would prefer a switch-up in the lineup construction;
  • Personnel decisions as we head closer to September call-ups;
  • A bit about the weird timing of the White Sox news if you missed it;
  • …and some stuff about broadcasters and streaming availability

Apologies for the lazy edit, ran out of time and have to do actual work here and there for a real job that pays money.

    Rice Cube,

    Strasburg’s debut is the closest I’ve ever seen someone look to Kerry Wood in his 20K game. Absolutely insane velocity and movement with a plan.

    Had this on the background all day while I pondered Seattle players between fighting with HR to get them to do their jobs.

    berselius,

    No, the Mariners are far more competent. What I’d give for an old-fashioned DiPoto house cleaning of our Univ HR department.

    The hardest part was trying to figure out which HOFer people wouldn’t have chosen yet

    Surprised at the most common choice for Tex x Cubs. Considering he only had what… 30 games in Tex?

    49 of this was Prince Fielder. Regretting Matt Garza for CHC-TEX instead of MIL-TEX since Dempster is sitting at 3% on CHC-TEX. I also forgot Carlos Lee was traded to the Rangers.

    Single digits on everyone except Paul Molitor for Brewers HOF. I also finally remembered to deploy Henry Blanco in one of these!

    (dying laughing), I think a lot of people lucked out on Henry Aaron, since almost all of his notable time in Milwaukee was for the Barves franchise, and he played for the Beers as his last hurrah.

    Apparently Rick Ankiel wasn’t RoY and four of the five non-Pujols answers are guys I’ve never heard of.

    Shockingly few memorable cards RoY winners before or after Pujols

    Was wondering where the hell the Pirates found a starter who throws this hard, but then realized he is just an opener (dying laughing).
