    Let’s hope Raley will fare better this time around.

      His stats in triple A aren’t eye popping.

  • Ray Ray

    They probably have 3/4′s of the best relay team in baseball now for pitchers. With Raley,Wood,Samardjija. Now if they can bring up Casey Coleman that would complete the relay.

      I don’t get what you mean. All I know is if you rearrange the letters in Raley’s name you get Relay.

      • Ray Ray

        They are fast runners. Raley was a standout 2 way player at Texas A&M.

    Do the Cubs have anyone that can hit and field a ball, The only kind of a pitcher with this team can win is to be perfect person.
