Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-18-17

Torrez has a very shiny ERA, but not striking anyone out as a 24 year old reliever at AA doesn't give a lot of excitement for his future. Maybe he keeps it up he's a strike throwing middle reliever for the time he has options? Even that is an uphill battle though.

Re: Jon Lester Appreciation Thread

Imagine being the person who turns being a fan of a team that leads their division fresh off a world series into such a hellish existence. We all should have appreciated the perfection of 2016 more because of how rare it is to be that invincible from start to finish.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

The last 5 WS winners won 81, 84, 71, 76, and 88 games the year after their title.

Interestingly, the last 5 WS losers fared much better, winning 87, 95, 90, 93, and 93 games, which at least suggests if there's a hangover effect it's not (entirely) related to the duration of the postseason.

Re: BenZo's Wrist

Since the All-Star break, Zobrist has been pretty much back to normal from an OBP perspective, and he's also getting plenty of day's off. The power still isn't there, but I doubt that's something that anything short of an offseason or simply more distance from the injury is going to help with.

Re: Send Schwarber Down!!

Yes, if you exclude the best games in a 20 game stretch because reasons, that 15 game line will look worse. Even if you inexplicably exclude the White Sox series, his OPS is like .785. Schwarber is getting shielded because he's being platooned at the moment, but the idea that he hasn't been good sin...

Re: Jon Lester Appreciation Thread

His most similar by age is littered with similar Hall of Very Good types: Verlander, Oswalt, Halladay, Hamels, Pettitte, Johan Santana, Mussina. I'd say maybe if he won like 3 more rings but Pettitte has that and the whole Yankee thing and hasn't made it. It's really hard to make it as a SP right now.
