Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnS3Oz08Xc4 Not the best video honestly. Definitely works at a quick pace and attacks hitters (which scouts love).

Re: Addison Russell

I could see Trump tweeting the same exact quote. I'm bothered by the part where he says, "isn’t doing their investigative work very good " in his quote. Definitely sounds like Trump right there. I'm glad you do your baseball work very good, Rizzo. https://s.faketrumptweet.com/jmcj8tsz_x80...

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

Honest reasons to like Alzolay..... Mid 90's FB with movement thats a plus pitch. Curve flashes plus, although its usually average. Change is improving, might be average by now. Works very fast, hard to get in a rhythm against. Seems to be a very high makeup guy. Yeah, I mean it's pretty easy to ge...

Re: Addison Russell

I will say I've heard from multiple people that Rizzo is a genuinely good person. I saw the video of him talking to reporters and it's not a great response. His quote is bad, but again he isn't a trained public speaker and probably didn't think about what he should say. He should probably state that...

At least Epstein made a better comment about this horsefeathers up situation. I'm sure he would've said more about this situation in private.

I'm sure he thinks Addison's take is BS and that he's lying.

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

It still seems bizarre that this movie is even happening. Like, so it's just...a Joker movie? Why? Without Batman, isn't it just, "here's a movie about a crazy guy who looks like a clown?" I mean, Venom comes out without Spider-Man in a couple weeks so whatever I guess. And it's going to ...

Re: Addison Russell

This whole situation sucks. The Rizzo comment sounds bad and probably someone from the Cubs should coach the players on how to respond to this horsefeathers situation. Definitely, do NOT say "We support Russell during this difficult time" or something to that effect. I have no idea what ha...

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

Yeah, I saw his list. It's not bad, and if he really does have an inside source then he probably knows more about some of these prospects than anyone here. I don't like DJ Wilson and think he's way overrated. He has great tools, but he'll never turn them into real baseball skills/ability. I think Ch...

Re: Cole Hamels: Somehow Justin Verlander

If he is brought back I expect a great season from him -- 3.2-3.5 ERA This seems REALLY generous for what will be a 35-year old pitcher who has been mostly serious butt for his two most recent seasons. I believe in him and think he'll do really well next year (barring injuries). I'm pretty sure pit...

Re: Cole Hamels: Somehow Justin Verlander

I'm still really high on Hamels. I think he's only had one really bad start for the Cubs (last start obviously). No one expected him to continue dominating with a sub-2 ERA. He's changed the way he's pitched since coming here and his fastball has ticked up. His changeup is still really nasty when he...

Re: Kyle Hendricks: Somehow Greg Maddux

Probably in 10-15 years they'll be rated this way (in the minds of Cubs fans). Cubs pitchers from this era: 1. Arrieta 2. Hendricks 3. Lester 4. Hamels (if he has a legendary postseason run that leads to a WS) 5. Strop I'm pretty sure the vast majority of our fan base thinks Strop sucks, or at the ...
