Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Anyone know anything about Alex Dickerson? Dude is 29 years old. The lowest wOBA he ever posted in the minors is 365 in A+, absolutely raked at every level. The only real shot he got at the Majors was 2016 with the Padres and he put up a 111 wRC+ in just under 300 PA, but nonetheless became a AAAA t...

Team ERA- by year:

2017: 91 - T-4th in NL
2018: 91 - T-2nd in NL
2019: 93 - 4th in NL


KBB (where framing really shows, IMO)

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

Are you talking about Willson Contreras? The converted infielder who has been the primary catcher the past four years? You are disappointed they handed the keys to him, 4 years ago? Four years they've largely spent in 1st place and been among the best teams in baseball. That disappoints you? I don'...

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

My disappointment would (so far this is all internet spec and I might be getting miffed for nothing) largely lie in handing the keys to the one of the worst receivers in the league whom hasn't shown much interest in improving his game. Are you talking about Willson Contreras? The converted infielde...

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

I’m fine letting some team dream on him being a starting caliber catcher and selling highish. He has a career 87 wRC+, he’s most likely a career backup. Dude he didn't have nearly enough career PA to give a horsefeathers about that number. I mean that's ridiculous. 260 PA. He is killing it accordin...

Re: RE: Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

If they trade Vic, they damn well better get something pretty good. He can hit, is a switch-hitter decent from both sides, and his overall D and framing have really improved this season.

Re: 2019 is Jason Heyward fixed thread

There's like a dozen interesting CF in the league and almost all of them are on contenders. I think we're stuck with what we have. Our best shot is if Happ plays at a high level, or if we make a push for Whit.

Re: Trade targets 2019

I mentioned Sogard before but that was before I looked at his xstats. He has been dreadful; the only difference is a drastically raised LA. He has 3 barrels all year. Hes just found enough fence-scrapers in this juiced era to raise his surface stats but hes been the same exact hitter he always has b...

I used to live in south Florida and when I was fishing with some friends one day we noticed a baby gator popping up every now and then. We decided to try to catch it. We tossed one of our catches back on the hook and within an hour or so, we had him on the line (actually I had no part in the act but...

Is that really par for the course? For a point of comparison, 2012 was the first draft with bonus pools. Here's the breakdown of players who reached 2+ career bWAR: 1st round: 14 players (1 Cub, Almora) Supplemental round (also 30 picks): 10 players (no Cubs, Johnson and Blackburn picked) All other...

We talk a lot about their pitchers picks in the first few years being brutal but aside from the pre-packaged KB and the wart-filled Schwarber and Happ top 10 picks, their offensive picks were mostly really bad as well. They have had a basically unprecedented hit rate(which absolutely includes Schwa...
