Re: Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood

Chatwood's also a Statcast darling Chatwood has elite curve spin, too. In 2017, there were 229 pitchers who threw 100 curves, and his spin rate of 2980 RPM was the fifth-highest, well above the Major League average of 2489 RPM, and just ahead of Morton himself (2874 RPM). He averaged 93.5 mph on hi...

Re: Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood

Anyways, I know a lot of people liked him at least a little bit. Can those people go over why they like him? Career 4.58 FIP, 4.2 BB/9, 6.2 K/9 Mostly the home/road stuff you just posted. Coors is horrible to pitch in and it’s hard to take much away from why he struggled there. But he’s been great ...

Re: The Cubs are a Finalist for Shohei Ohtani

even if he doesn’t really care about money, it never especially made sense that he’d take ten percent of what he could get elsewhere today. these trades feel like the final confirmation that we never had a shot. it's a one time signing bonus. a difference of 2.7 M or whatever can easily be recuped/...

Ohtani is coming here because we're the Cubs and these things just happen for us now. It's also why Bryce will be joining him next year.

Re: Who is Ryan Schultz?

It's all so bizarre. The story on its own of Ryan manipulating these people isn't that strange. It sounds like any old catfishing story -- except that the catfisher was a teenage girl, which is also very odd, as Sofa was saying. The thing that drives this over the top is the baseball writing dynamic...
