Moncada discussion moved to its own thread started by NJ Ave (not me :) )

If I spent a weekend chilling in NYC later this summer, which ballpark is more fun to visit?

We did not enjoy the "ambiance" of Citi Field...at all.  We've never been to the Bronx, so I can't comment on Yankee Stadium...though seats are doubtless more expensive.

I'm the resident expert on YS (for reasons a handful of people here know), so if you have any questions about it let me know. Never been to Citi Field, but YS has its own perks and stuff, as does Citi Field. Depends on what you're looking for.

The Cubbies seem to be putting together a good team...perhaps not so much with starting pitching depth...yet.  I will be royally pissed if they make it to the WS before we do.

Yu Darvish has a UCL sprain, could be headed for Tommy John per various reports.

Sucks for my late night MLB.tv viewing as well. There was nothing better the last few years than switching into a Darvish start where he had everything working. If I saw like 5 Ks through 2 IP I was on it immediately.

Darvish just needs to get it cut on. I don't believe I've ever seen rest and rehab work for TJ.

Aren't we about to see if it can work, up in the Bronx? I'm also doubtful and think the Yankees will have wasted about 8 months.

Adam Wainwright in 2004. There are many pitchers that go the R & R route we just shrug it off as a minor injury. Felipe Rivero did the rest bit last season.

Quite a bit, actually. Joey Gallo, Nomar Mazara, Jorge Alfaro, Odor, and Jake Thompson are all solid returns. And, freak it, they can throw in Profar just to see if we can rehab him.

I would think a call to the Phillies would be more likely.

Nevermind. He's just going to pitch left handed
