Re: Cubs Manager Search

I suppose Ross could have already quietly had a second interview, or the Cubs know him well enough that it wasn't necessary. I'm thinking the job might be Espada's to lose though. Yeah I’m guessing they either did a second interview/have had follow up stuff with Ross or spent more time with him in ...

Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

I’m out of market so luckily I won’t have to pay for Marquee unless it’s somehow thrown in my existing cable sports package (that gets me like MLBN, NFL/Red Zone/SEC/CBSSN/etc). Which Idk if it will even be available out of market since they couldn’t show Cubs games. I’m going to get MLBTV still. I...

Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

I thought there were rumors of AT&T and DirecTV splitting up? If the carriage deal is with AT&T and they DO split, what does that mean with DirecTV? I read the press release as the deal is with all of DirectTV, AT&T and Uverse. Shouldn’t matter if they’re ever split up/sold off. They ha...

It’s not an exclusive deal is it?

Don’t think so. Think they still are negotiating with Comcast and whatever other cable providers would carry it in the Cubs market.

Re: Cubs Manager Search

I wonder if David Ross is the choice, why they haven’t announced it yet. Yesterday would have been the perfect day to do it with the playoff game postponed. It wouldn’t have overshadowed a game. I suppose it could just be a contract negotiation thing. But the longer this drags out, the more it look...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

MLB admitted that the pill inside the ball was of a different size which may have been affecting the trajectory and distance the ball travels since they went with a different manufacturer for their baseballs, iirc.

After an interview Monday with Espada that sources say impressed Cubs executives, insiders suggest it’s a two-man race for the Cubs job, with in-house candidate Ross holding the edge.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Yeah the launch angle focus/revolution and players changing approach, scouting better/smarter with more tech and data available and players embracing it, conditioning, etc definitely is a factor here. I still think the ball is mostly responsible for the spike but it’s not the only reason.

I think it’s generally accepted they were juiced for all of 2018 and 2019, they possibly were here for all of 2017 and if they weren’t they came in some time during the year.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I don’t know how it wouldn’t help a lot of our starters, Hendricks, Q, Yu and Lester all would seem to get a boost. I agree with the idea it does seem our main offensive guys didn’t get a real boost so in theory would benefit/maintain value or power in a de-juiced ball league. Same argument, but in...
