Lol, that's good.

One a similar note, Danny Parkins irrationally annoys me. I don't know what it is but he just does.

Re: RE: Re: Justin Wilson: Somehow Carnie Wilson

I'm surprised such level-headed people have put so much stock in such a small sample. Duensing had like an 8 ERA after his first 10 or so innings this year. I know I've said it before, even to you. His stuff just looks so pedestrian outside of a fast, fastball. He can't control the FB or control or...

they hand out the blue check marks this willy nilly? I think most "athletes" get them as soon as they are drafted/signed. Also you can buy a check mark now and/or request one. Don't some of them get them while still in college? I think Josh Rosen is verified Yeah the higher profile ones u...

Plus, we can offer to let him PH and play in the OF occasionally if he really wants to try doing both (pitching and hitting). Hopefully, he decides to wait one more year! He's pretty much a non-prospect as a hitter. If we get him he's 100% a pitcher Come on bro, I wouldn't call him a "non-pros...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I enjoy watching the NFL a little less than I use to, I'm not a fan really of any team, but fantasy and gambling keeps me watching. Also, what else am I going to do when it's 20 degrees or less outside?

Fantasy Football Keeper Question

Might as well get this started since there's usually a few questions like this every year and generally the board gives good advice. Need to keep 1, 10 team, 1 point PPR league, everything else is standard scoring. AJ Green (lose 1st round pick) Jarvis Landry (lose 4th) Michael Crabtree (lose 9th) D...

Re: RE: Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Per Cubs Insider, Wilson's fastball has the highest whiff rate among LHRP in MLB. We haven't see it yet in a Cubs uni but the sample is extremely small and that should change. I don't get that, other than he throws fast. He has no command/control of the FB and it doesn't seem to have a lot of movem...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

I wouldn't be surprised if he is trying to get the 2020 option to be automatically vested in exchange for waiving the no trade clause. Yeah guessing it's an either/or, either he'll waive the NTC for being able to be a FA right now/end of year he's traded or his 2020 option is picked up. He's owed $...

Because he's doing the things a pitcher controls incredibly well this year and fWAR for pitchers is FIP based would be my simple answer. Also saw this tweet earlier, semi related.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-9-17

Yeah losing Paredes isn't a big deal to me, I'm fine using a guy like him to improve the team. But it's Wilson looking like a replacement level relief pitcher since he came over that I don't like giving him up for. His stuff just isn't great other than he's a lefty that throws hard.

You think they will look to get like Kurt Suzuki off waivers for a replacement or do you guys think they are fine rolling with Caritini as the backup?
