Re: Addison Russell

I don't even understand the cynical 'baseball-only' side of this. Addison Russell is not a very good baseball player. I don't even think he's better than Javy defensively. Why are they doing this? It makes no sense to me from any angle. Looks like Ravech was wrong and Theo put the kabosh on this re...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

So what will end up being the closest to the baller FA signing we all assumed/wished/hoped would be the SOP for the Cubs under the current regime? Heyward? Probably not, since he took less money. Yu? Eh; last year was the start of this current trend of offseason horse horsefeathers and he got lowba...

Re: Lee Smith, Harold Baines elected to HOF

I never understand this. ...They’re objectively less valuable than your league average #3 starting pitcher. This is my problem with putting them in the Hall. You can take any teams top 3 or 4 starters and you would have the same or better results than the best relievers. Anytime 100+ players are eq...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

If Bryce signs because of (in part) his friendship with KB, does that help the Cubs keep KB down the road cuz he wants to stay with Bryce? Conversely, if the Cubs can't sign Bryce, does that make it harder for them to retain KB? No idea what will happen but I wouldnt doubt if Bryce definitely wants...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Not saying I love that there has been financial constraint rumors but there is definitely a solid chance Theo/Jed are just flying under radar stealth mode on Harper. Theo is the same guy who secret signed Dex Fowler and randomly had him run out to Spring Training one practice after camp started. A r...

I stayed at the Bellagio last week for a conference. It is across from that sign. They weren't running Manilow then. Also the people pictured are way under dressed for this time of year.

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

The other problem with Gordon is Joe would lead him off anytime he started because “he’s fast and slaps the ball around and that’s what a leadoff hitter is and does” even though he walked 9 times last year (BB% under 2%) and Almora has a higher career OBP than him. Hasnt join been the opposite of t...

The majority of the Bleacher Nation twitter feed is people saying they'd pass on Harper. It drives me up the every loving wall. The Ricketts family are billionaires making 10s of millions of dollars quarterly. They own an entire block of buildings in the third largest city and are launching their o...

Bryant not being healthy wasn't the only problem they had offensively, and it's not going to be the only problem going forward. KB was a huge part.

Re: It's Maddoning

This team should just be varying degrees of a hitting beast, even with injuries and long stretches without off days, not a conglomerate of slap-hitting and walks with the occasional power stroke. Something is wrong there. I agree at times agonizing to watch this team. But with injuries and a brutal...
