Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

His analysis was pretty flawed. Sharma is comparing the variability for a single team to that of 10 teams combined. Of course that distribution will look more smooth. There really isn't any reason to expect that dip at around 4-5 runs to continue. It will normalize just like it did last year (as yo...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

Part of the narrative with the flood of Machado articles yesterday is the Cubs offense is too boom or bust. Which, I don't know if there's any information or metrics out there that are readily available that measures it but if I had to guess the Cubs offense is no more boom or busty than any other ...

Leaving aside all else and focusing on just timeline/talent/ability to win ... Elite offensive prospects tend to perform.

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Heck, if I'm being fair ... I'm not so sure the Cubs future is necessarily better than the Nationals. I really love Soto, and a core of Soto/Robles/Turner/Rendon plus Scherzer/Strasburg in the short term, and an ownership that you know will spend ... is very, very tantalizing. Sure, KB/Rizzo/Contre...

Re: The Cardinals

It seems like the All-Star Break is a good starting point for DeJong's return.



Carpenter/Gyorko/Wong/Martinez would have to be the worst defensive infield in baseball.

Re: The Cardinals

DeJong to the DL with a broken left hand after getting hit by a pitch last night. He’s the only SS on their 40-man so I guess the Gyorko SS experiment will be back. Garcia can play SS too, although I bet they'll be awfully tempted to try Gyorko considering they didn't have enough infield spots to g...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

I'm not sure about the translation of those combine tests. Jontay Porter cracked the top 5 in the shuttle run, and watching him play nearly 30 games he is...not explosive or laterally quick.

In regards to Keith Law's mock draft 2.0 I don't like Noah Naylor. I don't think he sticks at C. I don't know where he plays honestly. Maybe at 3B? He's a very divisive player like Law said.

Re: Food Monstrosities

So it's basically a flattened mozzarella stick, but they inexplicably call it "toasted?" It's beef and not cheese on the inside(at least in my experience), but I'm not sure why they call it toasted. Jon Hamm is from St. Louis, maybe there's some generational Draper-esque marketing going on.

Re: Food Monstrosities

Toasted ravioli, it is the one St. Louis specific cuisine that is edible, because it's basically another fried appetizer you dip in marinara. It's no crunchier than a mozzarella stick though. https://food.fnr.sndimg.com/content/dam/images/food/fullset/2011/8/29/2/FNM_100111-Only-In-004_s4x3.jpg.rend...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

We have 7 position players playing at a 3+ win pace and Rizzo isn't one of them.

On the other side of the ledger, we have 4 pitchers playing at a 1+ win pace, 3 are relievers and the other is somehow Chatwood.
