Re: Hacking mess

How did I completely miss this thread until now? I guess because it wasn't clear until just now how high this went up. For a director level employee to be pleading guilty is ... kinda a big deal. Imagine if you were the Astros!? http://www.magnetmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/BigFckingDEal...

Re: Projecting the 2016 Cubs

Sooooo glad to see the above gif after reading that tweet. I THINK I might have half a clue what the tweeter was attempting to do, but I have 0% of a clue what insight the actual stats and comps in the tweet should provide. The hidden columns show what Cubs pitchers go with that forecast and comp. ...

Re: The Politics Thread

My takeaway from these big fat crying babies is that terrorism really, really works really, really well. We don't know that yet. I'm hopeful that most voters find this casual Islamophobia lazy, and instead focus on the HUGE numbers of entrance Visas that Washington DC currently doles out (whatever ...

Re: Projecting the 2016 Cubs

Apparently, the Cubs odds to win a WS in the next two years in Vegas are set at 2.5 to 1 right now. That might be one of the worst bets I've heard of in a sportsbook. The only way to bet on the Cubs and get anything approaching positive EV is on over-under win totals (as the Vegas tourists from Chi...

Re: Baez to CF

I'm really happy that we have Zobrist and everything, but theres something ferociously cool about the idea of a Russell-Baez double play tandem. How is Zobrist on the turn these days? Are we assuming 2B is mostly his on Opening Day the next 3-4 years, or might he eventually move Bryant to OF full t...

We can expect Soler's defense to be better in 2016, right? Simply because it can't get any worse...right?

Re: Starlin Traded to Yankees for Adam Warren & Brendan Ryan

I was on team "DFA Castro, he's worthless" during mid season. When I heard he was traded immediately after signing Zobrist, I assumed it was a total salary dump. The more I read about Warren (especially the Fangraphs pitch fx breakdown) the more glad I am that I am not in charge of the Cub...
