    I read a tweet last night from somebody (Maybe VEB) pointing out Peralta's career BA against Lackey and it ended with "Just so you know why when he's inevitably in the lineup tomorrow...."
    Yeah, Peralta hit him well... 10 years ago!

    Why in the heck is this an afternoon game?
    Glad you said something. Need to fire up the iPad at work today.

    Who plays on fricking Friday afternoon? This is absurd.
    The Cubs play nearly, if not all, of their Friday home dates as day games. Have for years.

    Even though Dewitt is a tightwad surely he and Moz know Peralta is finished.

    It took them about a year to admit their mistake with Broxton. I fear we've got Jhonny for the duration.

    In short:

    1) Trade Marp
    2) Fire or swap out Maloney as 3B coach
    3) Release Peralta
    4) Release Broxton
    5) Trade Lynn

    Hard to argue the logic. Impossible to see The Way Too Patient One pulling off any of these.
    2, 3, and 4 are checked off the list now.

    I am now terrified and vaguely in awe of the magic thread.

    The guy that signed Cecil and Dexter should be on that list.

    3 down, 2 to go.

    Of course this doesn't include the real difference making moves: firing Moe, Matheny, and Mabry. Nevertheless, make the other 2 happen and the team SHOULD be better for it. As long as Moe doesn't get fleeced .

    It's simply mind-blowing that the very first move after last year was to lock up Matheny for 3 more wretched campaigns of Mathenaging.

    Yep. Moe is just not good at his job.
