i wish that someone would face to face ask Mr maddon why he is so fuckin stubborn that just ONCE start the lineup he has but put Zobrist 2nd Bryant 3rd and Rizzo 4th JUST ONCE and see what happens Bryant and Rizzoe are your RBI men Zobrist is the type of hitter that can bunt and move the leadoff man around. JUST ONCE!!!!!!!!!!!

Zobrist has batted 2nd twice (Cubs are 1-1), while Bryant has batted 2nd 45 times (Cubs are 28-17). And please, no profanity. It’s not necessary

I have two questions for you, Mr. Kaufman. Were you absent the week your middle school class was taught how to avoid run-on sentences? Are you utterly incapable of making a comment without utilizing profanity? (Also, your spelling needs work. It`s Rizzo, not Rizzoe.)

If I may add something, Mr. Kaufman, you exposed your lack of knowledge of the game when you denigrate Joe Maddon. He`s one of the very best skippers in all of MLB. Bruce Bochy is No. 1, and arguably Maddon is second.

The same to you, dude.

LOL jhosk!
