Re: International shenanigans in Atlanta?

Its clear there needs to be an IFA draft. Would it be so terrible to include IFAs in the normal amateur draft? The 16 year old craziness obviously complicates things. You can draft a 16 year old from Latin America but not a Bryce Harper type here. There is also the decision making aspect of whether ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

That was a very good assessment of the team, though. It was the lazy get traffic assessment of the team and not really understanding that we are in a still really big window. it called them "perennial contenders" for the future. We've been lucky to have three straight years of 90+ wins, t...

Basically, "how do get what we're doing so well in the regular season to work in the postseason?" Well, Mallee is, presumably, a key reason why things work so well in the regular season. Why scrap that for the crapshoot of finding someone who who can handle things as well as he does regar...

Eh, I’ll put my money on next year.


Im sure next year will be great but 2020 when all these guys are like 27 and Rizzo is like 30 or 31 might be the true peak with Bryce Harper in RF.

Didnt we have the number 1 obp in the NL again this year, score the 2nd most runs (more than the vaunted Dodgers)? Despite some playoff struggles the approach at the plate has been largely a dream come through for Cubs fans the last 2 years. Also have to realize the core is still extremely young. Th...

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

Okay I lied, my new favorite thing about the Brewer attitude is the idea that 3 years from now everyone on the Cubs will be old and/or expensive and they'll have no farm system to replenish with. They say this immediately after the Cubs traded Eloy, Cease, Candelario, and Paredes. The only one of t...

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

More of a general Brewers musing, what do you think Theo would have done if in like 2013 he randomly found the Cubs 5.5 games up in the division at the all star break. I'm thinking he would have stuck to the plan and done exactly what the Brewers are doing with their fringe acquisitions because eve...

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

I'm saying that Dunn is sorta what he is right now, and that's fine. We don't need him to be an MVP. And maybe he ends up hitting for better average (bonus!) but he doesn't need to to be productive That statline through your first 162 games doesnt scare me at all. First 162 games bookended with a t...

Maybe the Rangers like some of our high ceiling single A and lower guys?

Yankees might not want to part with a stud and the Rangers might prefer our super young dude to some other teams?
