Re: Jon Lester Appreciation Thread

There can be a middle ground here. This division blows, but having a lot of confidence in the 2017 Cubs is also kinda weird. Nah. They are clearly the best team in the division. And acting like losing Jon Lester is going to be the death knell is silly when he's had a 4.37 ERA this year and the Cubs...

He was sent down to the Arizona Fall League and came back to be a WS hero, so clearly, the farther he's sent down, the better he is when he comes back.

That's just science.


They better hurry up. The Dominican Summer League ends on the 26th.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Relief pitchers' WAR also incorporates leverage. I'm not sure if they use WPA or what, or how much effect it has. But, it's basically saying Duensing has been our most valuable reliever, despite being used mostly early and in blowouts and losses all the way into June.
