Elite Rafael Bush Jersey Cahill was used almost exclusively as a reliever with the Cubs, but he has extensive starting experience. The other pitchers did the majority of their work in 2016 as starters.
Elite Will Fuller V Jersey The concept of piggybacking isn’t new; the Reds, Astros and Yankees briefly tried it in their minor league systems three to four years ago. On the major league level, the Rockies, another pitching-poor franchise, tried it in 2012. Colorado also went to a four-man rotation and imposed a 75-pitch limit on starters. The whole thing lasted from June 19 through the end of the season.
If Green wants feedback about that Rockies experiment, he can ask Chacin and Friedrich about it. Both were in Colorado’s rotation that year.
Perhaps the worst moment in Hall of Fame history came in February 2006 when 94-year-old O’Neil had a chance to be among the 17 Negro League inductees that year but inexplicably wasn’t selected. O’Neil died within a year. But it’s not too late to correct an injustice and give him a plaque in Cooperstown. He’s the greatest ambassador in baseball history. He was also one of the finest first basemen the Negro Leagues ever knew.
The loudest noises on this issue are coming from the crowd that wants the National League to join the American League and adopt the DH.
But what if we went at the issue in a completely different direction and eliminated both the DH and the pitcher hitting? That would leave just the eight position players to hit. That’s not a new idea, but it is still an idea worth considering.
