Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

This is pretty bizarre It’s mind-boggling a team that can rake as much as the Cubs can’t hit a fly ball when needed. According to Statcast research, the Cubs average an exit velocity of 77.9 mph on balls hit with a man on third and fewer than two out, last in baseball. Overall, they rank in the midd...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

LaVine better get back to at least shooting well because otherwise he doesn't bring anything special to the table and seems wholly replaceable to me.

Speaking of Andre and the Princess Bride...just saw this linked to on Reddit... During the shoot, which Elwes said lasted for about a month-and-a-half, the cast and crew grew very close. "I can't remember a day without laughter," he said. Reiner acted as the father of the group, hosting d...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-12-18

Zach Short made the fringe 5 Few batters in the minors last year managed to avoid both the whiff and the ground ball the way Short did. He finished among the High-A leaders in both categories after having done basically the same thing earlier in the season at Low-A. It’s the same offensive skill set...

Re: RE: Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-11-18

Going back to their days in Boston, how many of Thoyer's pitching draft picks turned into better than BORPs or were at least shut down relievers? Lester & Papelbon were home runs. Barnes was decent last year, as was Joe Ross. Anyone else? Bucholz had two seasons over 3 WAR, 1 over 2 and 1 over ...

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

def not enough time for him to do stuff like look at all fast or athletic it also doesn't help his case in any way that he has barely played football since 2014. Please don't tell me you can judge a WR's ability in 5 games. And since he hadn't played in 2 years then it's no surprise that he played ...

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

They (pace) took him #4 pick overall. How is his potential weird?? 7th FWIW What stands out to me here, is that Nagy must have felt Meredith wasn't irreplaceable. I have to think he would have made his voice heard here and had Pace bring him back. It was just a poor gamble on Pace's behalf. Poor ga...

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

White is lost money either way, but he is additional lost cap too by doing anything other than keeping him on the roster for now. Basically he's around by default until he gets outplayed by 53 other guys. Maybe they're super confident in his health, but even healthy that would be dumb. So... maybe ...

Well this sucks. Cohen is WR 3 right now. I don't like the way Pace played this (at all) but I have no issue with Cohen at WR. He runs great routes, possibly has the best hands on the team, is amazing in space, and I'd rather pair someone else with Howard in the backfield. I think he will play the ...

At this point I'm just being unnecessarily nosy, no clue why I'm showing any interest in the Bears, but I would also suggest Mike McGlinchey at 8 considering that depth chart. I converted to a believer after he weighed in with 34" inch arms. All this Nelson hype (or Kolton Miller at OT) but th...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

For as critical as I have been toward KB, it is only because I hold him to absurd standards. He will absolutely put up a 3/4/6 slash line in his prime, I believe. I will be beside myself if he ever plays for another team.

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

My hope is that we can work a deal with AZ for the 15 pick, their 3rd, and their 2019 1st. They need a franchise QB and they should be desperate enough to trade up for one, and their roster sucks enough that they should still be a bottom 10 team this year, if not bottom 5. So I was thinking 8 and ou...

I saw somebody say he also removed his college and HS stuff as well. Maybe he's stating his athletics don't define him?
