Re: 2017 Spring Training Game Thread

If we released all of our pitchers and had to choose between our own minor league pitching prospects and any AAA pitchers on minor league deals in other systems (so not actual prospects) to form our pitching staff, how many games would we win? If you believe ZiPS, about 75. I think we could squeeze...

Re: 2017 Spring Training Game Thread

Yeah, yeah, Spring Training stats don't matter. But our probable 5, 6, and 8 hitters -- who are all 24 or younger -- have slugged for a combined .745 this spring. divided by 3 that's just .248 each. yikes That post wasn't put together very well. Almora also will be hitting 9th. Wrong on all counts,...

Re: The Cardinals

The important thing here is that a decision on extending a 45-year-old catcher is important to the Cardinals. They have miles of ground that they have to gain to catch up with us, and this is what's important for them. It doesn't matter so much if he is fully worth the $60 million or whatever they ...

Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

Do we just operate with a 26-man roster all year, swapping guys on and off the 10-day DL as need be? Bullpen a little worn out? Keep the extra reliever. A stretch against a couple teams with a bunch of lefty pitchers upcoming? Time for LaStella to find the DL. Same thing for righties? Sorry, Szczur....

Re: Top 108 Moments Condensed

This is amazing. I'm loving that bukie has been doing this. I've consumed as much Cubs World Series content as humanly possible. And it's never enough. My main gripe is that I love every moment that happened last season, and I don't get enough from the regular season and everything leading up to Gam...

so apparently there are new flag poles up in the back of the CF bleachers (2 each on both sides of the scoreboard) safe to assume that this has something to do with world series banners you can see them on yellon's most recent wrigley construction post Perfect!

Re: The Cardinals

I have doubts that the Cards finish above .500. But then they'd get rid of Matheny. True. But it would be quite fun to watch their patchwork rotation completely unravel, leaving them only with a lineup of the same identity as last year -- replete with bad defense, horrible base running and only abl...
