Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

I feel like this is where all these trade rumors for guys like Darvish, Gray, Britton, etc. end. Not going on anything concrete, but I don't think Theo's looking to trade anyone off the 25-man. Given that, I don't think we have what it takes for any of the top arms on the market. These rumors all s...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Darvish would tie Quintana for the lowest starter FIP on the team, so I think it would be a pretty great addition. I also think we'll be easily outbid.

Lester-Quintana-Darvish-Hendricks-Arrieta. Ya, that would do. Who do you drop for a playoff series? Almost has to be Arrieta, right?

Re: It's HAPPening!

Happ in July: .283/.345/.547 with a 8.6% BB% and a 19.0% K% for a 129 wRC+. Importantly, this seems to be a real set of adjustments and not just a hot streak. O-swing% (highly negatively correlated with BB%) is trending down: http://i.imgur.com/urLiMHi.png?1 And Contact% (highly negatively correlate...

Yup, thats easy to see coming. Maybe he waits til next week, but he's definitely getting fired. The fallout from that will be really interesting.

Re: Send Schwarber Down!!

I don't know, he's got twos of accounts agreeing with him. You think that kind of support is just made up?

Re: Send Schwarber Down!!

Seems like a good time to check in on everyone's favorite AAA player. Good Schwarber ('15) HRs: http://i.imgur.com/yuDpkrV.png Average spray angle of 8 degrees (center = 0, right foul line = 45), wRC+ = 132. In other words, he's at his best when he's using the whole field. Bad Schwarber, April and M...

Re: A thread for the all the remaining players/coaches/staff who don't have a dedicated one

I suppose this could be dispersed among all the player threads, but the coaching staff has done an amazing job getting everyone to cut down on strikeouts (something that's been concerning for most of them for a long time). Baez: 30% 2015 K% -> 23.5% in 2016 Bryant: 30.6% -> 21.8% Russell: 28.5% -> 2...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

A three game sweep of Pittsburgh followed by a four game sweep of Washington is pretty great, and it's going to be even greater when we do it again in October.
