Re: Castro

At 21 Castro hit .307/.341/.432 over an entire season. At least he has shown the ability to hit in the big leagues at some point in his career. I'm not saying Russell is going to suck forever, but he is killing the offense and was brought up way too early. Wow a 21 year old 1.3 WAR player at 2B is ...

Re: What's your wish list for the trade deadline?

Honestly I think the worst part of this no hitter for me is having to read so many doofuses (including the front page of ESPN) say something along the lines of "oh man Hamels price just went up!" No it didn't. Stop being an idiot. https://twitter.com/Ken_Rosenthal/status/62530465814009856...

Re: Castro

Addison is a 21 year old in his first professional season Starlin is a 25 year old in his sixth professional season There's a huge difference between the two and the fact that Addison can at least make up for his below average bat with his glove makes this not a comparison. At 21 Castro hit .307/.3...

Re: Castro

So 1 player is hitting .233/.306/.353 and the other is .237/.272/.306 and people can't wait to get rid of one but seem to think the other is going to be fine? IMO both Castro and Russell are killing the offense. Russell was brought up to early and should be sent back down until he can't get his offe...

Re: 2015 Bears Offseason (Foxy new Head Coach page 104)

This is starting to get overstated. We have many needs, but the defense's needs are far more pressing. We're coming off the worst two defensive years in this franchise's long history. As things stand right now, very little has been done to fix it. It seems like most of the free agency money was spe...

Re: 2015 Bears Offseason (Foxy new Head Coach page 104)

Out of curiosity, what odds would you guys put on Cutler being an above average QB next year(e.g. Top 15-16 statistically)? Apologies if I missed a similar discussion earlier in the thread, feel free to ignore if so. I would take my chances with Cutler over any other QB available this offseason. Su...

Re: Week 16: Lions at Bears on Fox at noon Sunday

Benching Cutler at this point is dumb, unless they are worried that the OL is so bad they don't want him to get hurt in meaningless games.

Lester should schedule a press conference with a Red Sox and Cubs hat in front of him and announce which team he is going to.

Re: Offseason Rumors & Transactions Thread

The infatuation with FA and spending money is reaching critical mass. The Cubs need to get good players. FA is an opportunity to do that. So are trades, so are waiver claims. The idea that they need to prove some level of 'commitment' financially is silly. If they don't sign Lester and instead give...

Re: Soler to AAA, Almora to AA

Almora's OPS in over 100 abs since All Star break is .903? :shock: AND in 74 abs in July he was OPSing .998. I did not realize that he had adjusted that well. Guess it shows how good the Cubs system really is.

If Theo/Jed would have added a few decent bats to go with the pitching staff this year, the Cubs could really have something.
