Yeah, no chance. Nagy will be here longer than Bisky

horsefeathers, I just remembered how the MLB owners got Kimbrel to take that deal and back to booooooooooooooooooooooooo

Kimbrel had the absolute worst season for a Cubs reliever in recent memory

I mean, he's not wrong. I fear they're gonna hire David Ross and make minimal changes and call it an offseason.

I'd run the offense around Montgomery as long as he's doing good things. And you can throw Cohen out there too.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

so is your point that schwarber is bad or that eloy is good? in any case, you are bad I think Eloy's age 22 season is a wash. As long as he shows constant improvement and develops, which he has; it'll be a successful season for him and the White Sox. It's just funny seeing people pretend Eloy is ba...

Re: Trade targets 2019

He’s been worth .8 WAR more than Bote but has gotten ~150 more PAs. Bote should just be playing 2B more. Bote's problem is he can't hit lefties at all He hasn’t hit them this year but he hit them well last year (almost 140 wRC+) and it’s only been like 55 PAs this year. He’s like 3 decent games vs ...

Re: Trade targets 2019

He’s a 30 year old 2B on pace for ~3 wins and who’s typically been a 2-3 win player outside of 1 year. He isn’t moving the needle that much and he’s going to be expensive because of his crazy, outlier, year last year. There should be plenty of bats to find that won’t cost as much as his that will i...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

So he'll be worse than Schwarber was when HE was 4 years younger. Way to think that burn through, champ. Schwarber had a good rookie season and World Series but it's hard to sit here and pretend like he's the guy we thought he'd be. If Eloy has the same career path as Schwarber after year 1, he'd b...

Re: Trade targets 2019

I think out of all the possible realistic assets the Cubs could trade for this deadline, Merrifield puts them the closest to winning a title. That being said, you've already screwed your future enough, eventually you have to start living with all your mistakes. He’s a 30 year old 2B on pace for ~3 ...

he is on pace for like a 1 win season eloy could be great, it's just stupid that you keep sniffing his jock when his major league time has not been positive for him so far He's on pace for about the same season as Kyle Schwarber this year, just 4 years younger.

I actually like this deal, could just be a Mizzell replacement as opposed to a Howard replacement.

If they're replacing Callahan with Skrine though, that's awful.
