Commentary: Cubs need to search for another shortstop, not second baseman

The Cubs are in first, their lead in the division has been increasing since the All-Star break, and yet, this is a team who teeters between needing almost everything and nothing, all at the same time. Full Story »

I can't disagree with Ken's opinion, as usual. He has a lawyer's mentality. He knows what I mean. But for this one, I would rather his take not be the road we travel. We have a relatively young IF now except old man Rizzo and with Bote and Caratini on the roster, the depth chart is somewhat virtual but I don't prescribe to the power ranking mentality that depth is essential to winning baseball. I say play the best 9 everyday until one of the poor rich kids can't take the blisters and then let Theo work his magic. And Ken, you sounded soft on Addy. As you might remember, I could give a #### about his alleged problems at home - blown way out of prportion and never charged or tried. Never admitted to anything but "causing harm." BUT, his attitude sucks. Even Mr. Magical Mystery Tour called him out on his JVHS-esk performance yesterday. Pathetic. Another thing that I wish you would consider is that performance of these kids, and they are kids, is directly proportional to their Adrenalin flow - yep, back to morale. Try and name a WS champ that didn't have morale oozing from their pours by the bucket load. That's how underdogs win. Pure want to. With the free agent schemes and caps on spending, teams are all capable of a playoff bid. its the intangibles that make the difference. morale. its whats for breakfast. addison russell has been poisonous to this team just like j-hey was in 2017 when he announced his broken swing out loud so it could creep into the nightmares of his younger teammates. i think joe thinks so highly of his own ability to motivate players that he doesnt know what he doesnt know but you know that I know that the answer to addy should be no. you know. swap out Happ for the other unmotivated once-AS hopeful almora and buy us a dependable 2-frame lefty middle reliever who's happy as a pig in #### to get 2 now and then and we win the ws this year if joe will play the boys that deserve to play.

Happ is slashing .322/.429/.661 with five home runs and 11 RBI in this month. just sayin
