I'm a Cub fan in Boston.
I'm a writer for MLB Trade Rumors, as well as the creator of Bench Aaron Miles!, a blog about the position battles of the 2009 Chicago Cubs.
The first half is coming to a end, and the rankings are starting, Please let me know what you think
I am sending some questions to the top Cubs writers in an attempt to do an April "state of the Cubs" address. I'd appreciate it if you would participate. If you agree, please send answers, along with any explanation/rationale to my e-mail address @ email@example.com by Monday, May 4th.
Thanks and here are the questions.
1. Who is the April MVP of the Cubs and why?
2. Who is the most disappointing Cub so far and why?
3. What is the top area of need for the Cubs right now (starting pitching, relief pitching, hitting, defense)?
4. What changes, if any, would you make at this time? At the trade deadline?
5. Give me your impressions of GM Jim Hendry (in how he assembled this club) and the job that manager Lou Piniella is doing
6. Your prediction for the season (win the division, win one round of playoffs, go to World Series, win World Series, not make the playoffs).
Sorry for so many posts Alex.
One of our Cubs writers wrote a solid piece that I wanted to share with you. If you get a chance, please check it out and leave some feedback.
The writer’s name is Darrell Horwitz. He writes for “The Heckler”, and hosts a radio show, but doesn’t like to promote himself.
I know, I'm going crazy with articles. But when you're unemployed, you have time on your hands.
As a Cubs fan, and especially living in Boston, I think you will enjoy this one.
Alex, as one of the top writers in the Cubs community, I wanted to share how we're doing, now that I have access to new stats provided in the "Community Lounge", a new feature on B/R.
I posted this note on the team page under the Community Leader section, but in case you missed it, here it is:
Hello Cubs fans, Bob here again. We're off to a good start at 5-2, so I wanted to share some other good news with you. The stats for this month rank our community #3 of all teams in MLB on B/R, behind only the Yankees and Mets. This is thanks to the fine work of our writers. We are, however, still averaging less than 3 comments per article, which I think we can improve upon. We're third in articles written, yet only 6th in number of comments. I'd like to welcome two new Cubs writers - Jake Leonard and Tod Kaufmann. Welcome aboard! Keep up the good work and let's go Cubbies!
sad story in baseball today. Nick Adenhart, angels top prospect, died in car crash just a day after he pitched. :(
Hope you are enjoying the baseball season. As one of the Cubs top writers, I just wanted to thank you for your efforts and encourage you to increase your activity in the community by commenting on each other's articles and encouraging healthy debate among your readers as well. While we continue to be among the community leaders in total number of articles written, we are lacking in comments as compared to other teams.
Keep up the good work and let's show the rest of the community that we are the best!
You community leader, Bob
Who do you think will be the AL MVP? PLZ let me know
Who do you think will be the NL MVP? PLZ let me know
You are correct, sir. I specifically chose it because of the dual irony. And, of course, because I cherish the moment and it is a really great picture.
