Re: Do you get your flu shot?

Not getting it is 100% effective in being a jerk. It's literally never crossed my mind to get one. Not by choice, it's just white noise in my life so I never think of it. As a result, I've never gotten a flu shot. I've also never had the flu so that probably has contributed to my gross negligence i...

Re: The Cardinals

Adam Wainwright's contract with the St. Louis Cardinals has been put on hold because it violates the maximum-cut rule, and the pitcher will have to become a free agent before the agreement can be finalized, sources told the Associated Press on Thursday.

Re: Guess what an idiot with a gun did this time

It's so quaint when gun-humpers get all worked up over the idea that "gun-free zones" are inviting gun crime. Like the horsefeathers who shoot up work or school or a theater or whatever would have been swayed from shooting up those places if there wasn't a sticker up somewhere of a gun wi...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

Anybody able to find Happ’s splits vs LHP in the minors? I know we have ~200 PAs in MLB to say he isn’t very good, but did he hit them well down there? If not I’d almost prefer he decides to move to a full time LHB soonish and focus on that. Depending on the level he was feast or famine. MiLB profi...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

I'm really not sure how to reply to this hypothetical binary idea that the Cubs are locked into having LF covered by only Schwarber or Happ going forward if both remain on the team. Nobody wants that, AND starting Schwarber full time isn't the answer. I agree, but this year they proved that Schwarb...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

They don't have to, but they do, and that's the problem. You have the option to play two people against lefties. One of them can't hit or get on base vs. lefties. The other one can't hit but can get on base vs. lefties. Why start the one who can't do either of them well? As you alluded to earlier, t...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

He's a "brainy" enough hitter that he should be able to make adjust and commit to being better vs. LHP. Hell, RIzzo sucked his first two years and then he excelled at hitting lefties because he made adjustments to do so. Schwarber spent a lot of time trying to fix that this past offseason...

Because he can't hit LH pitchers. Schwarber started 115 games in LF. 10 of them were vs. lefties. People who started in LF when Schwarber didn't: Ian Happ - 27 games Kris Bryant - 10 games (all in September, and likely because of the Murphy addition & Russell subtraction) Ben Zobrist - 10 games...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

Schwarber will never put up monster seasons because the FO will not let him hit against LHP. The Cubs have committed to him being a platoon left fielder. His value is not nearly as high as we all want/perceive it to be.

Re: It's Maddoning

Can anyone point to actual tangible or documented evidence of players altering their swing mechanics because of Chili Davis or is everyone just looking at offensive results and assuming it's his fault the players who sucked this year sucked because of him and him alone? Serious question.

Re: It's Maddoning

Schwarber? I DID think he'd lower the K's and hit lefties better. That hasn't happened and I doubt it will going forward. Ok, so he's a 3 WAR guy. With more power still possible at least. Nothing wrong with that outcome at all. He was never given the chance. Hard to get better at hitting lefties we...
