Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

The same reason they traded one for Davis. Yea but Happ >>>>> Soler Happ this year is greater than Soler by a decent amount. This year's Happ versus last year's Soler is a lot closer debate than some may think. I think this year's Happ is ahead, but it's not by that much to make a discussion about ...

Re: Should MLB limit mound visits?

I'm all for preventing the manager from coming out to make the switch after the catcher has already visited the mound to stall even more.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Can't say I like that playoff format. Only 4 divisional winners instead of the current 6. It seems like you would see the same teams in the playoffs just about every year. Multiple teams could win 95+ games and end up being eliminated in a 1 game wildcard playoff. Assuming the expansion teams and n...

Re: Recent Playoff Games: Rank 'em!

WS G5 is probably getting underrated We scored all of our runs in the 4th inning and every batter after the 6th had a chance to tie the game. That was horsefeathering excruciating. I wasn't sure we would win the series, but I knew we would win the game. The Heyward wall climb, the Bryant HR, the Ro...

Re: Discuss NLDS vs. Dusty Baker's Nationals

Prior to game 5: Did he consider sitting Werth in favor or another outfielder with the season on the line tonight? “Well, I did consider it,” Baker said. “But, you know, Jayson has been a big-game guy most of his career. So, not being sentimental or anything, but trying to be a realist. “Again, law...

Re: Discuss NLDS vs. Dusty Baker's Nationals

Let's face it. The Cubs were lucky to win this game. Wild pitch strikeout, catcher interference, throw the ball away, Werth loses it in the lights, Contreras picks off a guy - probably out, but I thought it was a tough overturn. Any one of these improbable occurrences doesn't happen, then who knows...

Werth is even worse on defense than I thought. His UZR/150 is -15.1 for this season. Guy hasn't caught a a single 40% chance or lower catch in 4 seasons. and is career 21% rating on Even catches in the 40%-60%.

Re: Recent Playoff Games: Rank 'em!

How much was last night's game helped by the fact that Dusty Baker kept slamming his hands in disgust at their bad luck? That's literally one reason why we won the game. The Scherzer inning reminded me of the Bartman game and how Dusty was just disgusted and never did anything to calm his team down...

Re: How many teams in each league should make the playoffs?

The current 1 game playoff between the 2 wildcards is awesome. It is almost like people are forgetting about the Marlins twice backing in to the playoffs as the Wild Card and winning the World Series. The current format was designed to make it much more difficult for a Wild Card to win. The division...
