Re: Projecting the 2016 Cubs

I could totally see the Cubs trading Schwarber in the future. It's all fun and games now, slap on some Benny Hill music whenever he's running, defending, or facing a lefty, but eventually that new shine will wear off. Could be Soler and not Schwarber, but I think one of them is gone for a pitcher b...

Re: Projecting the 2016 Cubs

I know nothing is impossible, but I really don't see Schwarber getting dealt as long as he hits the way he does and gets paid what he gets paid.

Re: 2016 Cubs Farm and Prospect Musings

I mean - there's other context involved (farm system is weaker, highest upside guys are at the lower levels and/or got hurt) - but I dig me some Candelario and have him as an easy top 10 system guy. I think he can be a similar on field player to Chase Headley , but I always compare him to Mike Lowe...

I'm guessing a young Ben Solo was being groomed as the Next Big Thing by Luke, trained on the island and all that. Just as he starts getting the hang of things, he feels a disturbance in his force and he finds out his parents are pregnant on some other planet. After Rey is born, his wizard power wea...

Re: Chinese knock off jerseys

Buddy of mine ordered 3 last year. The Arrieta one he got was ridiculous; the gap between the "ARRIETA" and the MLB logo on the back was, like, 10 inches I'm not joking. He tried to get a refund but I think they only gave him $5 back. I'll try to get a picture, its pretty funny.

Re: Javy Baez 2016 Prediction

Javy is too valuable to us as a utility guy/backup this year. We need him more than we need to use him in a deal for a SP. We can win a WS with this team as it currently is, and if by mid season Theo wants to upgrade the rotation or CF I think he'll be able to accomplish it without using Javy. I mea...

Considering Sheffield hit 500+ HR, I'll take that from Baez. Sheffield's problem was attitude and I don't see nothing but positives from Baez. yeah unfortunately there's a lot more important things that sheffield was a lot better at than attitude. Have you been paying attention the past 3 years? Th...

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

Nobody besides the Cubs is winning the division any time soon. Certainly not in this decade. Hopefully winning the division is not the goal. Right, because they should adopt that proven formula for winning it all once you make the playoffs. Winning the division (and thus making the playoffs) is gre...
