Re: How much is 1 WAR worth?

I've never looked or cared about pitching WAR. Just look at the advanced stats (FIP, xFIP, SIERA), or don't in the case of the Cubs

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

The Cubs can trade Happ, Almora, Russell and their top 5 prospects and that wouldn't be enough to get Mike Trout. The Astros can literally just go to the Angels and offer both their top 10 prospects (Whitley and Tucker) and a few fillers and it would beat that offer. The only way the Cubs have a leg...

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

Three starters to above average players in their early 20s cost controlled plus an Amaya & pitching prospect doesnt get you close? Trout is awesome but these superstar deals never fetch as much as people always guarantee they will cost. Some teams can offer better prospects that also very well ...

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 rushi...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

I love the job Theo + crew have done as much as anyone. However, I feel like they are getting more praise than they deserve for the drafting job they've done with the Cubs. I'm more than willing to give them the benefit of the doubt on the first round college hitter. But what else have they done in...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

LOL at anyone doubting Theo/Jed/Jason at this point. Even if he went 0 for this entire draft I would trust him. His drafts with the Cubs and the Red Sox before obviously have garnered a ton of trust. Ive seen the Bryant, Schwarber and Happ picks all criticized... Pretty sure Mookie Betts pick was h...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

every year i enjoy cubs fans watching the baseball draft like its the nfl draft I mean, it’s not as straight-forward but evaluating the mlb draft isn’t rocket science. You look at what number the pick is, then look at the pre-draft rankings, then you measure those against any standard list of numbe...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

Richan was solid, if a bit unspectacular, for San Diego this season, going 4-6 with a 4.62 ERA across 89 2/3 innings. He picked up 101 strikeouts as compared to a scant 13 walks, but was way too hittable, allowing 99 hits as well. He's a solid four-pitch pitcher with nothing overpowering, working i...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

At this point in the draft, don’t expect a prep pick to be underslot, even if he’s picked much higher than normal he consensus rankings. Quite surprising to see them go with a “raw” prospect this high. Goes against their MO. Thus far this draft has Wilken trying to be the smartest guy in the room w...
