Re: Minor League Musings

If you're taking requests, awesome, any feedback on Gallardo or Moreno? I'm also curious about how guys living overseas were impacted, maybe Jose Lopez for example? Are players housed at the DR academy?

Re: 2020-21 Offseason Top Prospects Lists

I'd be lying if I said I 100% disagreed with going so young and hitter heavy in the top 10, interesting list: https://www.fantraxhq.com/chicago-cubs-top-prospects-for-fantasy-baseball/ Davis Hernandez Howard Marquez Preciado Mena Nwgou Santana Amaya Alzolay Caissie (12), Gallardo (13), Quintero (17)...

Re: Cubs Spring Training 2021

The best pitching coach in baseball speaks! Hottovy shuts down the idea of opening a season in a 6 man rotation for some good reasons: https://twitter.com/NBCSCubs/status/1364994572472967179?s=20 I'm permanently anti-6 man, feel like it's more competitive to go 4 and gain the bullpen arm and also in...

Re: 2021 NFL Offseason

Kiper has 5 QBs in the top 10 of his last mock (Lawrence, Wilson, Fields, Jones, Lance) This draft is very hard to keep up with, not complaining but it's different. I see Pitts over Chase alot lately among the pass catchers, not sure I agree with that but it's interesting to see a TE so highly regar...

Re: 2021 NFL Offseason

https://twitter.com/howaboutafresca/status/1364811868703924225?s=20 Carolina is just a superficial contender IMO. Yeah they have the best team but also the least to trade, might already lose a good RT either way. Personally the idea that the NFL would allow a team with a top and top paid RB to trade...

Re: Minor League Musings

I would have been a little butt hurt if the Cubs didn't draft one of Howard, Crow-Armstrong, Kelley, maybe Jordan Walker, or the college pitcher Shuster (barely)

I don't think Yorke is a bad prospect, would compare him to Kevin Made in this system, but yeah there's a gap

Re: Minor League Musings

Thanks for the link, craig

I'm optimistic one or more of Thompson and Abbott can impact the staff similar to Gonsolin with the Dodgers. He's not a hard thrower either and with inexperience is a rough mix for playoff starts, but otherwise he's done well

Even more optimistic about Jensen

Re: Cubs Spring Training 2021

I'm pro Hoerner as the starting 2B. He's easily the best defender there, doesn't strike out, the position as a whole put up a 91 wRC+ in 2020 so he doesn't need to set the world on fire etc

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I had a feeling there was a little too much made over Ervin's splits. He still left alot to be desired defensively and on the basepaths. I'm still convinced Hermosillo is going be a pop up gritty mcgrit kinda guy off the bench doing a little of everything

Kind of like how last year started with the 13-3 start until we realized that they actually kind of sucked I forget that's the story people tell now. I remember these details about being taken off the schedule for almost a full week through no fault of their own just as Bryant probably others were ...

The 21st ranked player for FanGraphs' update, Jordan Wicks, had a big opening night: https://twitter.com/KStateBSB/status/1362873101999099911?s=20 He'd be a good pick at 21, but also don't know he gets there.

What is there to be excited about this year? The lineup is going to make a season long BP session out of the skeleton crew pitching staffs around the league trying to go from 60 to anything higher Hendricks is really starting to put together a career. He could cruise to 40+ career WAR if he pulls a...
