Because the person who built this team is obsessed with collecting no-hit middle infielders.

Javier Baez is an intriguing young player that I've kept track of for a few years. Nonetheless, for a second there, I saw "Joan Baez."
IS THIS THE GAME THREAD???

Hanson should be starting over Gosselin every time. Gosselin has always been terrible, at least Hanson showed promise a few years ago.

Yep. While I don't hold out great hope for Hanson, I don't see how a 7-plate-appearances-in-5-games pace proves anything but how a major league player can actually rust from sedentary exposure to the elements.

Gosselin looks like a pitcher tying to hit. Guess nobody's doing much at AAA, but there's absolutely no reason he should be in the STARTING big league lineup.
"We’ll be comfortable adding one (starter),” he said. “We’ll be comfortable adding nobody if it’s just not there. We don’t feel we are driven to force it. If we can add one that makes sense for us, that’s great. If we can add two that make sense … then we do that.”
Opie Taylor. In a decisive moment.

The Cubbies don't like that curveball.

Someone tell me how having pitchers hit, more accurately hunt makes baseball a better game. The Cubs dared Hurdle to hunt and he did.

Cubs corner IFers playing 20 feet from home plate and Hurdle leaves the sac bunt on anyway. DP.

Alan Porter. Worst ump in MLB.

This team can't afford to make three outs on the base paths in one game.
