Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Is it just me or does it seem like Joe has toned down the antics? I can't even remember when or what the last road trip themed outfit was, or whatever "out there" idea he had that made headlines and challenged the old heads' idea of how baseball teams should behave and whatnot. His defend...

Re: Javy and Schwarber entering HR Derby

Multiple Cubs players hitting all-star game home runs off Chris Sale would be very very funny, boy I hope it happens. Bryant got him in 2016 right? anyway the game is getting rained out so nothing is gonna happen which is for the best Yep, I had to look it up to make sure it was Sale, but Bryant we...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-15-18

The point is not to ignore age entirely, the point is that universally bad results shouldn't be graded on an age curve. "Universal"?--- So, his 2017 Eugene numbers don't count? For me the only thing 2018 says about ademan is that as an underdeveloped 19 yr old he wasn't ready for high A b...

Unfortunate. That means you missed this gem.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-15-18

His age and the lower threshold of his position gives him opportunity to rebound, but there's nothing about that we can look at and think it portends well if he only were a few months older at t his level. Well, you’re just acknowledging then ignoring Ademan’s age differential with respect to his r...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-15-18

I haven’t seen anything from Ademan that indicates that he’s a shoo-in to be a strong hitter at any level of full season ball yet. certainly capable of doing so, but taking a few walks while the bat gets knocked out of your hands in low/high A doesn’t fill me with confidence. I don't see how his pl...

Re: The Cardinals

Lots of speculation that Girardi is the top candidate for the job...but if so...why fire Matheny? They basically have the same old school, no fun, managerial style. Girardi is actually an intelligent person though. There’s no way he’s possibly as bad as Matheny. I mean, Girardi is better at saying ...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

If you can make a deal for DeGrom using Happ and Almora and basically any reasonable permutation of minor leaguers, that's realllly hard for me to turn down. Especially with Bote looking at least LaStella-caliber with the bat, you can add a bench OF too and shift more of Zobrist's innings to the OF...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Just saw an article on ESPN.com stating that Hendricks will likely get the first start out of the AS break. Anyone care to speculate about how they will set up the rotation? I'll be at Wrigley on 7/26 for sure and probably 7/25 as well. Curious as to who may be projected to take the mound for those...

In what is almost certainly a kiss of death for his start tonight, after seeing some of the Top 20s in the other thread, I think Thompson might be the most underrated prospect in the system. Yeah, I admittedly would only exclude him based on how poorly his game seems to have translated to the AA le...

I assume it's the same for 18, but I've been playing a ton of FIFA 17 through EA Access and they do have roster updates that you can apply at the start. On that note, it looks really likely that FIFA 18 will come to EA Access in the next couple weeks, so if you have an Xbox and don't mind the subscr...
