Aquino against a RHP like Hendricks doesn't sound like a good idea. I believe I'd have gone with Naquin in RF and Moran at DH, but it probably doesn't matter much. Other than a couple of guys, nobody hits.

In 2019, when Aquino homered three times versus the Cubs, Hendricks pitched that game.

Interesting question. He’s missed a number of games with reported “soreness.”

Kind of a vague description.

But I think he’s missed about five games recently, so it’s not nothing.

Calling guys mfers telling the Cubs dugout to STFU waving his arms around like a tough guy. It's embarrassing behavior. If he had a problem with what the pitcher said then go up to him and settle it. Don't bark from 70 feet away with no one in between you acting like a tough guy. The pitch that nearly knocked him down wasn't that far inside as Votto stands on top of the plate.

Only thing I remember about Ross is he was Arroyo's personal catcher.

I saw him hit a long HR at DC's old RFK Stadium back sometime around 2005. Other than him dropping every single ball thrown to the plate to him that's all I remember.
