Re: Baez impresses Baez

i know that javy is just having his hot streak at the beginning of the season and will cool off eventually and enter a brutal cold streak. But im enjoying 2016 NLCS Baez while he's here. Any growth at all and he could be a 4-win player. that's huge. Yeah it’s definitely a well timed hot streak and ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

It’s hard for me to see the electoral reaction to Trump’s presidency thus far as anything but a sign he’s going to be emphatically voted out in 2020, but maybe there’s a turnaround or some other reason to think that things will change from Democrats flipping senate seats in Alabama to Trump threadi...

Re: Politics & Current Events

100% agree with all this, plus consider that 37%-40% is more or less Trump’s ceiling (as you sorta alluded to). 538 would call this a bad use of polling. Nate Silver himself has also repeatedly pointed out how Trump's pretty steady hovering around 41% leaves him just barely outside the polling wind...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-22-18

Thanks much for the Little report, Cubswin. 88-92 velocity is what Lester and Quintana use, to variable success I guess; both are control artists. Wonder how well going with average velocity and variable control will work? still hoping to see at least a little more velocity at some point. If they d...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

We better not throw at anyone next week against them and they better not throw at us. Just beat those idiots and move on with it until we play next year. With them well when they leave town and ask them to remember to watch us in the playoffs when they are sitting at home.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-22-18

He could also gain velocity. Yeah, he’s only 19. Yeah, you'd think there's room to add velo at that age. As a lefty even if he goes from 87-89 to say 88-91 and maybe touch 92-93 that's plenty of velo if the command and control is that good with a good curveball. That report on his pitching profile ...

From The Athletic article on him after the game tonight.... According to Statcast, 74 of Darvish’s 94 pitches were either his four-seamer or cutter. He used his changeup four times and his curveball just once. In his previous start, Darvish went to his change five times and his curve just twice whi...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

We've scored the 2nd most runs in the division. 1 run behind the Vaunted Pirates (101 vs 102) and have the best RD (+22) despite playing anywhere between 2 to 4 games less than everyone else. I think the VBs, VPs and Cardinals would admittedly say they are playing good to great right now and you cou...

It’s likely he’s still going to be a relatively high K guy even if he fixes things but this is good to hear that he seems to have his mind in the right place. All MLB players are obviously professionals and they didn’t get here by being lazy and not working hard but it really seems like we do have a...

That's sexy. Basically hitting the ball hard and in spots on the field when it isn't going out of the park where the fielders aren't and when he tries to power one it's going to where it should be going in the air.

We are down to 24th in K rate as a team (21%), we're 9th in BB rate (9.8%), second only behind the Red Sox in team OBP (.350), 4th in position player WAR, and also have the 6th best RD (+25) in the league. The offense is basically at where the 2016 offense was.

Hand up I’ve never been a big fan of everyday Javy, never wanted him gone. But never bought him more than a platoon/defense guy. I’d be glad to be wrong.
