But . . .
How does Jon Lester play catch with his kid? Like does he just hum it in at 95, or does the kid have to chase after every throw?— Blake Jorgensen™ (@Blake_Jorgensen) September 21, 2017

27:28: Maddon's Musical Chairs.
* Doolittle: Cubs' Lineup Puzzle Keeps Getting More Complicated.
* Jason Heyward's WAR this season is 0.9. He's a -8.8 offensively, and a 2.8 defensively.
* NOTE: Rhodes disagrees with Coffman on the value of corner outfield defense; Heyward has four Gold Gloves and a shit-ton of defensive runs saved. Doesn't mean he shouldn't sit at times, but not ready put him on the scrap heap either.
44:12: Extend The Freakin' Nets Already!
Scouts and front office people ALWAYS sit behind a net. After a game or two you don't even know it is there.— Bill James Online (@billjamesonline) September 22, 2017
47:37: The Blackhawks' Very Short Preseason Is Underway And Almost Over!

* Unknown: The Bears may have to pass up a QB prospect in the first round of the coming draft who is better than Trubisky!
* Biggs: Ugh.
* Dear Dan Wiederer And Jim Coffman: The Bears Have No Chance To Beat The Steelers, C'mon!
* Bears Savior Tanner Gentry Clears Waivers - Again - And Is Re-Signed To The Practice Squad!
* Lance Briggs Now Member Of Media Contingent Preaching Accountability.
