Re: 2018 All Star Game

I fully anticipate javy hitting 30 hrs in the first round, and unable to swing the bat in the second.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

How much longer until Javy passes KB and Rizz in popularity in Chicago? Has it already happened? My 11yo son's a huge Baez fanatic, to the point of getting a blonde mohawk and temporary MLB logo tattoos for the back of his neck during youth baseball season. Of course, he was a huge Castro fan befor...

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

When do we start to get concerned about Rizzo? The slumps are becoming more frequent, and when he slumps, he REALLY slumps. I don't know what his soft contact rate is, or where to even find such a thing, but it sure seems like he has more soft contact than anyone else in the Cubs lineup. He also ha...

Also super happy how mad their selection is making people who have no idea how well they're doing this year.

Re: 2018 All Star Game

Generally I don't get too caught up in who does or doesn't make the All-Star team, but I'm super excited that Javy and Willy will be there.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Kane makes the penalty, then I can only assume heads to the bench for a moustache and fake sunglasses so he can also take the next 4.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Geiger apparently left his cards at home. Colombia has probably deserved at least one straight red for a headbutt, if not several more yellows, including an assistant coach giving Sterling a shoulder shiver when heading off the pitch for halftime.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

There's enough people who are paid to write and talk about soccer that are talking up Juan Carlos Osorio to USMNT being a thing that I'm forced to consider it now. I think I like it? Maybe a lot? There are certainly worse options (aka the prior 2 hires), and the result today (and v Sweden) was a ne...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

July 1 first-half offense musings:

- Willson Contreras has been a slightly better Buster Posey this season.
- Anthony Rizzo has been the worst Cub regular hitter to this point. However, his batting line is still above average for all but 4 MLB teams (Cubs, Red Sox, Yankees, Astros).

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Did they get rid of the double jeopardy in the World Cup? I know they did in the EPL so as long as you're making a play on the ball, you can't get a red card and give up a PK. Because that should have been a red for denial of a goal scoring opp. Yes they got rid of triple jeopardy as long as it's a...

Fox hasn't cared from the outset, and the better team won both games today, so it'll be a better matchup as well.

Encouraging offensive stat: Every Cub with over 110 PA has an above-league-position-player-average wOBA (league average for non pitchers is .318). All 10 of Bryant, Baez, Schwarber, Zobrist, Almora, Contreras, Happ, Rizzo, Heyward and Russell are between .327 and .369. Update, yesterday's game shuf...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

So there's an interesting scenario in play in the Group G finale between Belgium/England. If Brazil wins their group and Germany finishes 2nd in theirs, the winner of group G would play a Brazil/Germany winner in the quarters, whereas the runner up of group G would play a potentially more desirable ...
