Re: Addison Russell

It came up in the GT today but thought I'd post it here to keep the discussion going. The results haven't been great but the process has been really good by Russell so far this year and good things should start happening soon. As the Duke'ster and I pointed out Russell this year... He had a 15% BB ...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I know Chatwood has walked like half of the batters he's faced, but Alex Cobb has given up 20 hits in 7 innings and has a 15.43 ERA in his first two starts.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

There had to be some serious topspin on that, too. When it first hit the grass, it just took off. I'm not sure of the physics of everything with the wet grass. But, from that Fangraphs article looking at similarly hit balls, that data doesn't include spin. So I'm wondering if it has something to do ...

Re: Jagoff About Willson Contreras Here, You Lazy Jerkoffs

Agree. The only thing I take away from it is obviously the K thing is/was dumb because it wasn’t that bad and we were hitting the ball hard and the RISP issues should find a normal level soon enough with guys hitting the ball hard. As a team, we've hit the third-most "barreled" balls with...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

I definitely think it's Bryant. He has a chance to go down as the greatest Cub ever, and he's treated like he's just one of the guys. What he's doing is just crazy. I know he technically had a bit of a "down" year last year, because of the high leverage stuff and a drop in power, plus smal...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Obviously I wouldn’t care too much about one game’s velocity readings. Anything that happens during one event could just be the happenings of a weird day. But even after only 2-3 consecutive starts with similar velocity numbers, I start worrying. Maybe I shouldn’t, but I do.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Fire small sample size velocity/release point/movement analysis into the sun I agree that it is silly to read too much into changes in release point and movement over small samples, but velocity stabilizes very quickly. I think it is one of the things that can give us useful information early in th...
