Bryant injured as Cubs lose rubber match versus Reds

Surprisingly, a blowout loss in their rubber match against the Cincinnati Reds was not the worst thing to happen to the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. Full Story »

At some point Theo had got to sit Maddon down and tell him enough of these blender line-ups.

We are still feeling the effects of having Strop running out a needless bunt last year with his hammy still not recovered.

Now we have a right fielder playing center who runs into a third baseman playing right field and he will be out for who knows how long.

If somebody doesn't stop this guy he's going to get the entire team killed.

It's obvious just watching that Heyward is an elite RF defensively and a so-so CF. He isn't as confident, thinking more, different perspective fielding...just not as comfortable as his home in the corner on the right side for so many years.

He is an elite RF defensively with this glove and arm...just another CF to me. He misjudges more balls coming at him in CF. The advanced stats also show that he isn't great the last few years as he has transitioned more into CF/RF combo.

That's ironic, as you just said in another post, that you had no use for advanced stats...

You don't need stats to see he sucks in CF. That's what I agreed with.
