Re: 4/28 World Champs (Jake) v. Red Sox (Pomeranz) 6:10, MLBN

When is it okay to be worried about our starting pitching? Depends on the severity of the worry. The time to be worried if all the starters are actually bad is about December. The time to worry about if they won't be as good as last year is about a week ago. The time to worry about if they are goin...

do you think Strode always walks like that or is it an homage to Bosio

I am not a scientist, but if I had to guess I'd say the Cubs' first inning ERA this year is about thirteen

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-27-17

I don't like imagining the catastrophic chain of events that would have to occur for Chesny Young to spend plenty of time with the Cubs. You SHOULD. Because it means our youngsters have played well enough to get paid bigly in arb. And it means we've added another big FA too. We'll be wanting a few ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-27-17

I love that we don't have to talk about nobodies in the minor leagues anymore since the big league team is so good..., oh wait. Nevermind. It's okay to like both the awesome big league team and have an interest in all the mostly hopeless weirdness that following the minor league system entails. It'...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-27-17

TT, I'm not concerned about a sub-100 PA sample size. If he's not over .750 in Iowa at the end of the year, I'll likely hedge my bets somewhat here.....But, he's been a year younger than TLS at each level too. Again, I don't think he's got Seal Boys pop. But, I do believe in the hit tool. He's goin...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-27-17

Chesny Young is a non-prospect. La Stella can hit and hit with some pop, Young can not. A non prospect? So, you think he's never making the majors......Or you don't know what NP implies.(and I know you do) Young will not play in the majors in any meaningful capacity. I'm not going to say he never s...

Re: Sports Media Thread

MLBN exists to promote MLB and increase its popularity. If they can get wider distribution of their content without taking a financial bath, then they win even if ESPN 'steals' those viewers.
