Re: Cole Hamels: Somehow Justin Verlander

If nothing else he's likely as good as Hendricks when Hendricks is on, and lately, Hendricks has been on. So, that's 2 pitchers probably a small notch below surefire ace.

Really great acquisition.

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

I think you just kind of live with the walks if he racks up Ks and GB like he is this year. He's probably a guy who won't truly click in the majors for another season or two but once he does he will put up top set-up guy numbers. This is the 2nd straight year he's striking out 15 per 9.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-8-18

Swarmer's numbers are very sexy, although he is a fly ball pitcher. But that's 104 IP now this year with a 114:17 KBB and 6 HR allowed. Not bad at all for a 584th pick just 2 years ago.

RBIs aren't dumb. Comparing players based on them is.

I want my middle order hitters to rack up 120ish RBIs.

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

What's pissing me off even more about the Smith whathaveyou is that we could have traded out of 9 and scooped up extra capital which would have made the eventual lack of a 2019 2nd much easier to navigate around. Only a handful of times in the last decade have I felt that there was a non-pass rushin...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I love how some idiot put classified ads out asking for their missing pieces. Even when I was playing at 15-16 i knew how rare those pieces were and that everybody had the same incomplete board.

Really interesting article and I think it will make for a great movie.

I frankly think it's horsefeathering amazing that our offense is still atop the league even with so few dongs. We're like, playing an advanced game of smallball, putting together great ABs and 'manufacturing runs'. For our position players to still be producing OPS among teams with 50-60 more dongs ...

I don't remember specifics like you guys but yeah 08 was just a ton of fun until the playoffs. I remember that stretch where we faced a bunch of aces and knocked em out in 5 or less innings. I also remember breaking my phone when Crawford of all people hit a granny against us and the Rays swept us.
