Re: Why does this 90+ win team's season feel lacking?

I think part of it too is, a lot of the things that have gone wrong have been glaringly obvious whereas the things that have gone right have been easy to overlook. For example the defense has again been the best in baseball, which is easy to forget. The bats have been average or worse for a while, b...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

So, what does everyone else want? Or do you prefer going after a 2B, and just figuring Bote, Zobrist, Zack Short, and whoever the 2B addition is, can handle things...... Man the Cubs have come a long way from 2015's "LOLOL, so many talented shortstops in the org, how will we ever fit them all ...

Re: Addison Russell

even if his struggles are due to nagging injuries there's no reason to think he'll go through future seasons without nagging injuries that lead to struggles. He didn't miss significant time in either 2015 or 2016, it's not like he's never been able to stay healthy for a whole season. There's no rea...

Re: Addison Russell

I'm hoping a lot of his really severe struggles lately have been due to nagging injuries. He suffered that hand/finger injury during the game vs Minnesota on July 1. Up to that point he had a 108 wRC+ on the year and was on pace for a 4-win season. When he went on the DL in Aug he admitted that he h...

If the Cubs don't make a move heading into the regular season, their moves are Chatwood and Morrow and lost Arrieta? The Brewers were nearly better than them last year.

I could be wrong, but didn't Kyle write a front page article at one point claiming that Arismendy Alcantara would end up being the most successful player from the Alcantara / Bryant / Baez / Soler group, owing to his higher contact rates? I mean a lot of people (myself included) thought Alcantara wo...
