Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-16-18

Oh, ya gotta love Brailyn Marquez single-handedly saving the Cubs organization's pitching prospect list after losing Alzolay to injury, De La Cruz to suspension and Albertos to Steve Blass disease. 5 starts, 1 ER in each of them. Gotta love consistency. 21.2 IP, 13 H, 7 BB, 29 K, 2.08 ERA, 0.92 WHI...

Surely this guy I've never heard of has similar trade value to Russell + Happ + + ?

We should make sure we don’t want to trade Russell and Happ +++ for this Phillies pitcher if he’s that good.

Re: The Cardinals

Criag Edwards seems to follow the same line of logic the majority of those guys have over on that VBs board. And by line of logic I mean totally delusional, living in outer space view point of their team.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-16-18

Roederer just took Corey Black yard for his 2nd bomb in the past 2 games. Had already walked and stole another base before that. Gonna have to ask AZPhil what he looks like defensively in CF, because he's been great at the plate so far. So we drafted Mookie Betts (Nico) and Benintendi (Roederer). N...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

I liked Kirby Yates as a target and even more now after seeing him pitch after last night. We should take him back with us after the trip to SD. Would think he wouldn’t take more than like Underwood and Short.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Seems like the Mets would want Victor Caratini included since they don’t have a decent catcher and don’t look to have one any time soon right? I hadn’t seen him mentioned at all here. They might have to make a secondary deal for a backup catcher but that shouldn’t be to hard. They can have him. Jus...

another sign Over the past month, Harper has shaved his trademark beard, changed one of his walk-up songs -- he ditched Sam Hunt's "Body Like A Back Road" in favor of "Drunk On Your Love" by Brett Eldredge -- Pretty sure Rizzo uses that walk-up song, or at least did in the past....

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Let’s say Happ was blocked and never came up last year and was still down this year or just came up this year. I think we can assume he’d be putting up great numbers in AAA with positional versatility and a switch hitter, he would be like a top 7-12 prospect in baseball right now if he qualified, ri...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

I do wonder if a 3 team trade would be possible if the Mets want more prospecty dudes. Maybe Almora and some stuff to the Marlins for a good prospect which goes to the Mets, Happ and some prospects from us as well to the Mets and DeGrom and Maybin to us. Almora is the local kid coming home and Jeets...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

If you can make a deal for DeGrom using Happ and Almora and basically any reasonable permutation of minor leaguers, that's realllly hard for me to turn down. Especially with Bote looking at least LaStella-caliber with the bat, you can add a bench OF too and shift more of Zobrist's innings to the OF...

I'd also see if I couldn't get Starlin back and put him a 2nd when Javy slides over to SS.

I’m not including Russell for him. Happ and Almora + non Amaya prospect(s) I’d do and then find a RHH OF (like Maybin).

I think this is the rare case where the eye test and the stats don't match up. "Unlucky in BABIP" is him constantly grounding into the shift and popping balls up into the infield. I'd be curious how those numbers break down by month, as he has looked terrible more often than not in the la...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

So there is roughly 2.5 pitchers per team who have pitched enough to qualify on each team. That kind of says a lot on its own. The Cubs got him to give them a lot of quality innings at an affordable price, not be a shutdown ace. Oh I'm not really criticizing the deal, which i would probably do 100 ...

Do you see the direction of this trend? Can't you infer what is happening or do you need me to say it out loud lol? Who cares if we have fewer roll over GBs to infielders? It's not just that.

I'm worried by this growing trend. Right now I'm not that worried, but if pitchers keep adding velocity and hitters keep striking out at a higher rate something will have to be done down the road. I really don't want to lower the mound or push it back. I think instituting an automated strike zone t...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Any FB over 92 MPH is a ball. Or ban breaking pitches. That’s the fix. Pitchers have gotten so good that the current way to approach hitting is really the only way to go about facing the current day pitching.
