Now we can begin to see who won the Rizzo for Cashner trade

Former San Diego Padre, Anthony Rizzo demonstrates a really long-ass swing.

Anthony Rizzo is set to start tonight in his debut for the Cubs. Andrew Cashner, is learning how to be a starting pitcher.

And with Rizzomania about to hit Chicagoianers, a White Sox Insider gives us the lowdown on why Rizzo didn't do well here. I love insider views....

WAIT A SECOND. THAT'S DAN HAYES.

Dan Hayes is so meta. Check this bit:

Even so, Rizzo told the North County Times last September that while his confidence might have wavered, it hadn’t disappeared

Ohhh... Rizzo told the "North County Times, eh? Are you sure he didn't tell PADRES INSIDER, DAN HAYES, DAN HAYES!?!

I would read that just to show Dan Hayes that we miss him and also to do a baseball cliche drinking game with the article. Rizzo's swing "got long". And how does he fix that? Well, he has to "see the ball and hit the ball".

See? Baseball easy.

In other news, are you going to be pee your pants in frustration if Rizzo goes off for the Cubs tonight?

Me too.
