    Because he certainly can't manage!

    Hendricks, the supposed ace of the staff, lasts only three innings in the opener, and Ross ends up using eight pitchers. Baez and Heyward both go 0 for 4 with three strikeouts. Could be a long season in Wrigleyville.

      I certainly hope so.

        That would be nice.
        Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.

          Any Cubs loss puts a smile on my face, but an Opening Day loss at home is just that much sweeter.

            Cub fans who thought the Ricketts were going to run the team and spend like the Dodgers are slowly coming to realization that the family is going to run it like their own personal ATM.

            It will really sink in if, or when, they trade Bryant and Rizzo over the summer.

              They aren’t going to trade Rizzo, imo. If anyone of their big 3 (4) stay, it’d be him. If he has a mediocre year, I don’t see Rizzo earning the cubs current offer from another club.

                Given the state of the team and the regression of on roster talent, trading them and rebuilding would be the smart move anyway.

                    What an incredible play by the Cubs gold glove SS. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it.

                      I remember they once had a Shortstop (or Third Baseman?) who made it necessary for fans sitting behind First to wear helmets to prevent head injuries.......

                        I believe that was Roy Smally (the elder). I remember my dad telling me that story when I was a kid.

                          And there was their famous DP combination of "Sandberg to Dunston to the dugout."

                            Cubs have a covid outbreak in their bullpen. The bull pen coach tested positive, they have 4 players on the IL because of contact, and Hendricks was scratched last night with an undisclosed illness.

                            They also reportedly have a large number of guys that refused the vaccine. Eric Sogard, who's only on the roster so they can manipulate Hoerner's service time, is married to a loud anti-vaxxer so I wonder how much influence he has had.

                              As bad as the Sox are hitting (and they are bad) the Cubs lineup today had seven position players batting under .160. And yes they are getting shut out in the 9th inning.

                              Also looks like the Red Sox are about to win their eighth in a row. ESPN is having giddy fits.
