Re: 2019 Spring Training Thread

Rizzo looks like he slimmed down a little from some of the pics today and that video.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

https://twitter.com/crawlyscubs/status/1097656949494218758 So it sounds like he's hinting at a trade...not a signing. I don’t think this guys actually knows anything. He’s just trying to connect dots that don’t exist on Zobrist’s absence. That being said I could see them thinking trading Zobrist to...

Zobrist, who isn’t in camp yet for an “excused personal reason” per Joe today.

Re: 2019 Spring Training Thread

For horsefeathers sake, Joe. He caught about 100,000 more innings than the next closest guy last year. Also, if the mental side of things is something that’s wearing on him maybe get a veteran backup in there to help ease that burden instead of horsefeathering Vic. https://twitter.com/mdgonzales/sta...

Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

All offseason, I’ve thought the argument to not sign Bryce/Manny because we might want to save money to re-sign or extend our own guys in 3-4 years who will all be north of 30 was the dumbest argument our fans made in favor of passing up Bryce and Manny. So it’s super cool to see the owner have the ...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

Moustakas is no star, but having to sign two crappy one year deals in a row is just an indication of how broken this system is. No QO to use as an excuse this time, either. I really hope there’s a long lockout next time if it means the players are standing up for themselves. The owners’ greed is ab...

championships it's all luck but it still comes down to championships for that word to be invoked. more than one. probably more than 2. the 90s yankees and the 2010s giants.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

What’s the definition/benchmarks of a dynasty in MLB? WS win, averaging mid 90s wins and leading mlb in total wins over a 4 year span (with a decent chance it’s a 5-6+ year span), 3 NLCS appearances, and guys winning MVP and CY Young on the team during the run seems pretty close to a dynasty in MLB ...

Pretty sure that’s right. I think he also attempted to be a switch hitter early in his minor league career but scrapped the left handed hitting pretty quick.

Re: 2019 Bold Prediction Time

One bold prediction on the division I’ll make is it takes under 90 wins to win the division (88 or 89) largely due to the strength of the division dragging down win totals.

Re: 2019 Bold Prediction Time

Either Heyward or Chatwood has a monster year. 4+ WAR minimum. I'm not sure I want to consider what circumstances would have to come together for Chatwood to even get that opportunity... I’m starting to talk myself in to Chatwood being a reasonably valuable thing out of the bullpen so let’s get nut...
