Poor Anthony Rizzo.
All these quotes from Cubs' management saying he shouldn't feel any pressure.
Just come up and have fun.
When that's all you hear, I bet it makes the pressure so much worse.
But I say balls to all that.
There really shouldn't be any pressure.
You gotta fill Jeff Baker's shoes?
Come ON, man.
They don't even trust him to start against left-handers.
You gotta go back to Derek Lee before his wrist injury to find anyone worthy of pressure.
Plus, it's the Cubs.
Not only is it the Cubs, but they're the worst Cubs ever.
Let the city get to know you, this year doesn't count anyway.
Next, Marlon Byrd.
I'm not gonna read all the stories, but the drug he used is banned and it's real use has something to do with women's breasts, but guys who take steroids use it to counteract shrinking nads.
I'm sure they love him in Boston, having already been a colossal failure.
And now this.
The Cubs came so close to shutting out the Mets last night, and young Mr. Wood went 7 innings of giving up nothin' but 5 hits and even better, only one walk.
With all the "control" plan Theo's got for him, wouldn't it be nice if he really turned into something?
Okay, it's the Mets again tonight.
There's a reason to watch again.
Lets hope Anthony gets a hit quickly, fields all of Starlin Castro's throws and he can just get on with life as a Cub.
And while I kinda dissed LaHair earlier, I sure hope they keep him starting in right and we can see some combo of young bangers in the lineup.
