It’s a tough world in the game of baseball. But Chicago Cubs’ starter Yu Darvish might cost Victor Caratini his job.

With the struggles that Chicago Cubs‘ starter Yu Darvish has had, there’s only one thing that you can do. No, it isn’t send down Darvish. It’s sending down Victor Caratini for Chris Gimenez. Doesn’t seem fair, does it? Well, it’s not. But the Cubs’ Darvish needs some help, and he’s the high-dollar man. It’s possible that Ian Happ could also be sent down, but that’s unlikely as well. It seems that Caritini is the man that’s likely to be sent down, and that’s a shame.

Were the Cubs wrong to let Chris Bosio and John Mallee go? When it comes to moves like this, there are always factors that come into play. Did the Cubs put too much on exit velocity and launch angle? Maybe so. But when the Cubs brought over Jim Hickey, that seemed more for the friendship than anything else. By midseason, the Cubs could be on point for a great season and we won’t have to hear about it anymore. But until then, we might as well get used to it.

When the Cubs let Dexter Fowler go, they didn’t let him get away, per se. When the misses asked Fowler for when they could schedule the c-section, it was very clear. Not during the Cubs-Cardinals series. Fowler needed to see Anthony Rizzo before he had his child. If that doesn’t say everything about these two, I don’t know what else does.
