We're going to end the season tied for the best record in the NL my dude

I know, but it feels like this year and last year, the pattern is: Maddon pulls the starters too early in the first part of the season, burns the bullpen out over time, bullpen is exhausted for playoffs, and I'm not sure how much financial flexibility we'll have with so much money tied up in bad starting pitching.

Cubs clearly the weakest of these four teams by

a) Scoring fewer than 11 runs
b) Allowing opponents to score

He hasn't recently but I remember idly browsing Cardinals prospects a couple of years ago and his timeline was littered with Trump and Fox News retweets. That he has those beliefs and wears Curt Flood's number isn't a loving disgrace.

So am I the only one having some serious cognitive dissonance watching Jamie Garcia pitch against the Cardinals in a Cubs uniform? Because yeesh.

As a straight white dude I want to give the benefit of the doubt to other straight white dudes until they prove their views otherwise, but the precedent has been... bad as of late

Cubs using their entire bullpen when they have to face the Brewers tomorrow who used none of their best guys is... not good.

Also as weird as it seems Lester's twitter comments in the wake of the awful tweets by Hader, etc, proved that he's actually a really thoughtful and swell guy.
