Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I don't have a good feel for how they'll handle Jay/Almora, but my guess is they'll start with Almora playing against all LHP and then split time against RHP to start. Once they have a little data on how those two are handling RHP they can customize the 'platoon' a bit more. They don't have opposit...

Re: #NotAllPitchers

So he'll be able to be back in 5-7 weeks, in time to take Harvey, DeGrom's or Wheeler's spot. I'm heading to Vegas this weekend, planning on putting a not small wager on the Mets under 91 (where I last saw it, may be different at the book), think there's a lot of value there. The downside is huge an...

Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

I'm in favor of the 26 or even 27 man roster so if MLB teams playing shenanigans with the 10 day DL leads to that I'd be perfectly fine and would think that's part of the motive of teams pushing the issue on the 10 day along with why MLB agreed to allow it. Half measures will lead to full measures.

Nah, he's the Zobrist replacement when he leaves in 2 years and Javy fails to be a viable everyday player because he can't hit RHP.

Re: The Cardinals

The important thing here is that a decision on extending a 45-year-old catcher is important to the Cardinals. They have miles of ground that they have to gain to catch up with us, and this is what's important for them. It doesn't matter so much if he is fully worth the $60 million or whatever they ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Bosio being able to keep Anderson healthy for a full season may be the greatest trick he ever pulled.

I laugh of the imagine in my head of Bosio and his buddha belly watching film of Anderson thinking "If only he landed less on his heel," as he pounds Bud Heavy's.

Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

I think he turns out to be a version of Andrew Miller out of the pen for us this year and doesn't really start many games. He'll prove his worth out of the pen more valuable than starting. If that is the eventual outcome I certainly won't be upset, but I continue to think it's a mistake to not give...

https://twitter.com/gdubcub/status/847130229357199360 Having Montgomery as your only LHRP to start the season seems silly, but I guess with a 10 day DL if there's legit injuries they can play the juggling game.

Re: The Cardinals

Wong is pretty bad and yeah he wouldn't make our 25 man sure there's a team like the Padres who'd take him.

I also thought the Cardinals were going to focus on defense this year, so..... putting at Gyorko at 2B over Wong seems counterintuitive

Do they make a new thread at Mets Refugees every time one of their pitchers has elbow discomfort or do they just have one injury mega-thread? Pretty sure they make a new one and then it pretty much goes with them saying they are fine because Wheeler can just take the injured pitchers spot (even tho...

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

Don't know why Purdue isn't trying a zone against Kansas. They can't stick with their guards man to man. Especially with their bigs, just clog things up. All those open 3s were created off of the dribble drive which Purdue couldn't hang with, if you go zone at least you can contain the dribble/kick ...

I know why (because respect the game or some horsefeathers), but why doesn't some promotion department do a band/vuvuzela/trumpets/drum night for a MLB team. Especially a horsefeathers one on weeknights in the summer?
