OK, cool.

Seems like they had a lot of balls in the air, is all.

James Russell said something similar about the need for a fast start.

I'm pretty sure the lat strain is a made up injury.

Excellent point.

Further ...

The only reason they would do that ...

I mean, does it matter that he used those exact words?

Ha.

But he's hurt.

He's likely thrown his last pitch as a Cub.

Odd distinction you're drawing, Al.

This is something you two definitely agree on.

Got hurt.

Cubs needed a righty bat, that's why Valaika got the call.

Watkins can play MI and outfield, IIRC.

Part of this comes down to what the teams were hoping for from the FAs.

As others have noted, Jackson needs to go to the pen to reset.

Because the rules don't allow for that, unless there was a mechanical problem.

His piece was just awful. Ranty, all over the place, pointless.

I mean, the timing was dictated by the umpires.

It's not impossible that they could pass the Mets, Red Sox and Twins.

That's why it sounds pretty fishy, IMO.

With Jackson making at least three more starts, it's hard to picture.
