Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

From The Athletic article on him after the game tonight. Guy has 29 different pitches but has only been throwing two of them his last two starts (admittedly Coors played a role in not throwing the curve and they've been working on simplifying his repertoire), but seems like changing up the sequencin...

What exactly is Torres good at other than being young for each level he’s played at? His numbers aren’t crazy good.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

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...

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

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. I wonder how much longer such an exaggerated shift will be kept on him if he keeps go...

COMPLETE FAILURE.

11th in doubles, 5th in slugging % and 4th in ISO, despite playing anywhere from 1 to 4 less games than other teams. The counting stats on dongs will come, Sofa.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

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.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

My feelings for never really liking him were mostly based in seeing the potential if he just stopped being so stupid at the plate with the hacking. Like the dude has crazy raw talent and it was so frustrating to see he just needed stop being such an idiot flailing away at the plate on pitches that w...

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.

Portland should have a team. I don't care where else they put one, as long as its not Vegas anytime while KB and Harper are close to FA I wouldn't be mad at mid to late 30s twilight of their careers each with 5-10 Cubs rings Harper and Bryant signing with a Vegas team for the inaugural season.

Law ranked Hankins at 33, but had him ranked #1 overall before the injury scare...... 33. Ethan Hankins, RHP, Forsyth Central High School, Cumming, Georgia. Hankins was No. 1 on my list before his shoulder barked, and while he's hit 95 mph in his outings after a monthlong layoff, he hasn't been the ...

Initial reaction is have to be at, at least 5 and likely 6 wins through that week 10 game vs Detroit for any playoff hopes with the finish.

Don’t know if it’s just their DL shenanigans again or if it’s actually serious? Also, is “finger inflammation” just a fancy word for blister?

the current playoff format is pretty great. Although I’d probably feel differently if the Cubs were on the wrong end of some short series NLDS randomness/luck in their recent run. Yeah I’m fine with it and the overall 162 game set up too. Just saying it seems making playoff series longer would be s...
