Re: Good, Morrow to work on the sabbath

We could probably place some blame on the people who signed the pitcher who is always hurt.

So who is in the NLDS bullpen?

Wilson
Montgomery
De la Rosa?

Edwards
Cishek
Chavez

Then either Kintzler, Rosario, maybe Webster if he impresses, or Strop (I'd be stunned) for the last spot?

Re: homophobe (Daniel Murphy), incoming (to the Cubs)

You know, Murphy has been so bad at 2B, I do wonder if the Cubs will opt to put him at a corner. Joe seemingly prefers to play La Stella and Happ (when he's played infield this year) at 3B, so I wouldn't totally rule that out for Murphy even with Bryant back. Might also depend on if they view a cert...

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

I mean Bote at 3B. By "there" I meant the defense in general doesn't suffer much when Russell sits and it's a Bote, Javy, and Zobrist alignment

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

6 DRS in just 169 innings at third base. I know Maddon loves having Russell and Baez up the middle, and for good reason, but Bote has looked so good defensively, I really don't think we're losing much there with Bote starting over Russell. Hopefully he's still an above average hitter by October beca...

I mean Hamels himself isn't that exciting but I'll still organize the welcome parade for him if it means Chatwood is removed from the rotation.

Wait, why wouldn't we want Happ given the state of our rotation? I'd love to get him, personally.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

I certainly like the idea of Britton, as you can never have enough top pen arms these days. However, I really don't know what to think about the roation and whether we need someone like JA Happ more than Britton or not. I'd like to think at least one of Darvish/Montgomery/Smyly could be in a positio...

At I-Cubs game. Alzolay 94-96 mph in first inning. Got a few weak swings at a mid 80s curve. I'm intrigued.

Re: Things are looking Grimm for Justin

I guess I'm mildly interested to see Butler as a reliever full time. Maybe he can consistently sit 96 mph or something. I'd assume he's pretty much locked into the last bullpen spot. My guess is if Strop is ready on opening day, we go with 8 relievers; if he's on the DL, Bourjos or Zagunis take his ...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

If you can lock in Darvish+Yelich right now, I say just do it even if it does take you out of the Harper sweepstakes (which it might not). With the amount of effort the Nats, Yankees, and Dodgers will put into Bryce, I'm fine not taking his free agency into account when going after talents like Darv...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

I was just thinking that if we sign Darvish and need to shed some money to go after Harper (aka avoid having a $245 million payroll), Chatwood could be a decent trade candidate next offseason. I think they pretty clearly weren't expecting to sign Darvish when they got Chatwood, and I'll be surprised...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Isn't the real fear "What if we can't re-sign Kris Bryant?" Like right now I doubt anyone is too concerned about losing Russell or Schwarber if we get Harper. And yeah, it's probably worth it considering we'd have the two best players in the NL together for three years, but it's worth bri...
