Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

https://twitter.com/Cubs/status/1008547071090184195 Schwarber now has seven outfield assists. Seven! He doesn't have a cannon for an arm, but he's accurate and faster to the ball this year. I wonder when dumb teams will stop running on him... I really miss Baez because the tag from Zobrist was not ...

Re: Heyman: Nationals close to acquiring Kelvin Herrera

The haul is mediocre. https://twitter.com/jeffpassan/status/1008865942158405632?s=21 Yeah, I don't believe this is a great haul so it's strange that they decided to do this deal now.

Re: Eugene’s Roster

I wouldn't be absolutely stunned if the Cubs wanted to rest Casey and Richan after big workload years. I wouldn't be surprised if Weber and Hoerner's time in Eugene is very, very short, barring some extreme struggles. I wonder if it's one of those extreme situations where a guy like Hoerner gets a ...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Washington Nationals superstar outfielder Bryce Harper is a five-time All-Star and the 2015 National League MVP, but there's at least one NL executive who reportedly believes Harper is overrated and not worth paying a king's ransom to acquire once he becomes a free agent after this season. "He...

Cory Abbott with an okay game today? It's probably a bad game. 4 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, and only 5 K's. I mean 5 K's in only 4 innings isn't bad.

I know it's almost a meme at this point to say "Heyward is fixed" and this may not last, but it's really great to see him figure it out, even if it's just for a stretch of a few weeks or whatever. He seems like a really great guy, and he really deserves the success. Yeah, he seems like a ...

Caratini with his first HR of the year lol.

This kid really needs to learn to pull the ball or hit with a higher launch angle. His approach at the plate is really good, but I wonder if he'll ever develop even average power.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

I want Seth Lugo as a bullpen/swingman option. I also wouldn’t mind Gsellman but really like Lugo. Lugo is controlled through 2023, I’d trade Adbert + for him. Lugo’s basically what we want Adbert to turn in to and he’s controlled plenty long, I’d trade off the little more control of Adbert and a l...

Not interested until they mock the last player selected in round one. Won’t the Cubs lose their first round pick for signing Harper? No. Teams won't lose 1st round picks going forward for signing FAs that receive a Qualifying Offer. So teams that are under the luxury tax threshold will lose a 2nd r...

Wow. I'm really excited and can't wait to see his debut later this summer. I wonder how far his extension is? I believe I read how he has one of the closest release points to home plate for any pitcher in the minors.
