Re: Kris Bryant is awesome and we were always right to love him

The ground ball thing likely falls in with what Bertz is talking about with the bad contact outside the zone, too.

Re: 2019 HR Derby [Discussion & Transaction Thread]

A faster fall from grace than the Cubs for the two-time defending champions.

Re: Albert Almora is insanely good

And, yeah, I assumed Cain would break down and it would be a normal surplus value early/overpay later-type deal. But, at this point, they could pay him that salary through 2035 and he'd be worth it.

Re: Albert Almora is insanely good

Probably a glitch in the system and he's running so slowly that his movement isn't registering and Statcast assumes it is the second baseman running out to make the catch.

Chatwood and Heyward are the Cubs' two best players.

If only there were an outfielder a year older than those two that was hitting .278/.418/.544 that we could have added a couple months ago.

Re: On what date does Maddon get fired? winner gets an up vote

He was already fired, but he keeps on showing up at the park. Ricketts will never turn down labor he's already paid for, as tight as things are for the Cubs budget-wise. And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Theo that if they move my desk one more time, then, th...

I don’t understand how tight things are. Like, are we not gonna resign Kris Bryant? What are we looking at here


They'll have to the money to resign KB. But he is going to sign in Philly to play with Bryce, and we'll sign Kyle Seager instead.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Prediction - Bryce 10/320-350 to the Phillies by sometime tonight. this is absolutely 10000000% happening and he is definitely 10000000000000000% not signing with the cubs and i'm definitely not trying to jinx anything in a reverse sort of way If this post was by Duke...mayyyyyybe it has some sway....
