Re: Baez impresses Baez

hell i even like him now an odd season with the bat so far; he's 2nd worst in team WPA, narrowly "trailing" ZobWrist but he's actually been fantastic with men on base: .889 OPS and whiffing just 21% frequency he totally falls apart in high leverage spots, which might mostly explain it, but...

Re: Cubs Acquire Justin Wilson & Alex Avila for Candelario, Paredes & PTBNL/Cash

Nice to see the Cubs gut more of their minors. Next season theyll become the Brewers of 2009 and quickly wonder why they have to go sign guys like Suppan to maybe create a winning team again. Maybe Theo is trying to win 1more WS before moving on to another franchise to try winning a WS. He doesnt n...

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

i tell anyone who'll listen Schwarber has a 60 grade hit tool so i don't think strikeouts will be a long-term issue

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Does Willson have his own thread yet? I would create one but I can't think of a clever title for it. Anyways, in the last month Willson has hit like a superstar. From June 16 to July 16: .356/.411/.690/1.101, 8 2B, 7 HR Yes his BABIP is .393 over that stretch but IDGAF. After a really slow start, W...

his start yesterday (83) was 2nd-best game score on the season for the team, behind Lester's CG against the Giants (85) in May

Re: Cubs trade Eloy, Cease, others for Quintana

feels like this is also driven by acceptance that Heyward is here forever and Eloy won't really have a clear opening (if they believe so strongly in Schwarber like writers suggest)

Re: Cubs trade Eloy, Cease, others for Quintana

I DO love though that we have Quintana through 2020, and the secondary pieces in the deal are basically roster filler. So we can still trade Jeimer and Zagunis and Almora/Happ for another piece before the deadline. What does this make our top 10 look like now? https://m.popkey.co/bcef74/Q8gLV.gif

Brett from Bleacher Nation is having twitter kittens over a story about the Cubs trying to get Trump to say "you're fired" about Miggy. I think he might have a nervous breakdown. Why the horsefeathers do I keep seeing this as a story? I saw the video where Gammons said it and I know he di...
