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: Talk Arrieta here

Maybe I'm being a stick in the mud, but the breathless single start evaluations of pitch f/x numbers seem so tedious. Arrieta throws a super slider now!

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.

Re: Cubs give Bartman WS Ring

The only reason I am even wasting any time commenting on Steve Bartman is because the Cubs felt the need to make this public announcement. And it caused him to release a statement to the media in which he once again asked for privacy. You seem to be assuming there was zero communication/coordinatio...

Greinke will go in the WC game obviously (so then Game 4 of the NLDS), but Robbie Ray, Zack Godley, and Taijuan Walker are all still very good. If I can nitpick, are they? I mean, they have undeniably pitched well, and I believe in a couple of those guys to various extents, but I'm also getting a b...

40 man was at 39 before the trade, so it was at 40 after with the removal of Candelario. Only moves were Grimm and Caratini to Iowa.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-1-17

Mekkes got smacked around, gave up his first (three) runs at Myrtle Beach. Maples had 4 K in 1.2 IP, but 3 H and a walk leading to a run and loss.

In happier news, Burks has 2 walks and a double, and DJ Wilson is 2 for 3 with a 3B and walk.

Re: Cubs Acquire Justin Wilson & Alex Avila for Candelario, Paredes & PTBNL/Cash

Candelario certainly wasn't going to get meaningful MLB at bats to change his perception, and the minor league season only has a month left. Plus Candelario has cooled off considerably after a high-BABIP April. He's also had nearly 650 PA at AAA so it's not like there's still some waiting to see how...
