Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-23-17

Eugene has 13 runs on 15 hits in 6 innings. It appears I've been given credit for 2 hits just for looking at the box score.

Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors

Oh, then Luis Perdomo...Maybe Mejia on the Twins? I'm going to stop guessing on this now. Perdomo is a decent option if the Padres are done with him as a starter. The deluxe option would be seeing if the Rangers want to give up on Martin Perez and turn him into another Wood/Montgomery. Maybe Tom Ko...

Re: RE: Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors

We don't need another bat. Obviously let things play out, see if the recent surge from Russell can continue, or if Zo or Kyle come back stronger than ever, but as it stands, this team has 2 above average hitters and a rookie enjoying a lot of early success. The young guys have been so up and down. ...

Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors

Points for originality, but zero chance I'm trading a reliever that's producing well. 'Good enough' in the bullpen turns into a disaster in the blink of an eye. All it takes is CJ coming down with an arm injury and you're trying to win a title with Strop and Uehara as the back end of the pen, and t...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Moved this to Transactions since it fits better. It would've been fine as a separate thread too. Thoughts on what it would cost to acquire Maybin if the Angels fall out and shop him? I've liked Maybin for a long time, but I have a hard time seeing the need for a position player unless they trade sig...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Is it just me or did anyone else just assume Preller had already gotten fired for ruining the Padres beyond repair? I looked him up just now to see when that happened and was surprised to see he's still San Diego's GM. Then I go to make this post and what's the most recent one above it? And Preller ...

Re: Talk Arrieta here

Arrieta now has 15 starts on the year. First 8 starts: 44.2 IP, 5.44 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, 49/13 K/BB, 8 HR Last 7 starts: 40 IP, 3.15 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 40/12 K/BB, 5 HR Judging by the WHIP disparity and the K/BB being similar, it looks a lot like he was getting BABIP'd.

So how long will the demotion last? “Until he’s himself again. I’m not going to put any limits on it one way or the other,” Epstein said. “Knowing him, how hard he’s going to work, and how talented he is, I wouldn’t expect it to be too long.” As for when the team will know when Schwarber is ready, ...

Re: Send Schwarber Down!!

In fairness, the gap between now and Zobrist and/or Heyward coming back is only a couple days(Heyward only has a cut and he's eligible to come off the DL in like 6 days). Heyward coming back means you have Happ, Jay/Almora, Heyward across the OF which is fine, Zobrist only adds to that depth when r...

This seems like an extra dumb idea right now, considering Schwarber has been productive in June and Heyward and Zobrist going on the DL. It might accelerate the progress he was going to make anyway, but if you're making the team worse in the meantime how much benefit are you even getting? All the t...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Gray's peripherals are basically exactly in line with his 2015 and prior, the biggest difference is that he has one of the worst strand rates in baseball, a problem he didn't have in the past and is almost certainly due to his defense, which is worst in MLB in UZR by a large margin: http://www.fang...
