« The Kris Bryant Suspense is killing me. | Main | Cubs vs Cardinals. Time to make some fun. »

July 16, 2021



We've reached the point where the biggest consideration for teams (and we fans) is which players are in their "walk year", which teams may want to "rent them" for 3 mos., and how many borderline prospects (future trade fodder) we can get in exchange. What ever happened to developing talent and keeping it?

I guess I'm an old fogie... but this isn't the baseball that I grew up with. Right now, I couldn't name 10 guys I can expect to be playing for the Cubs next year.

They just figure we'll keep watching, buying tickets and loving our team....whoever they may be.

My give-a-shit-o-meter is running pretty close to zero right now!
