Re: Cubs get their speedy playoff pinch runner guy

Kris Bryant can take the rest of the year off now. The offense is fixed!

Re: RE: Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

So Sonny Gray also has some unsavory Tweets coming back to bite him. Maybe. Maybe not. There is a dangerous precedent being set where people are jumping to conclusions without the full context. While some of these people may be genuinely bad guys, I don't think it is fair or productive to keep digg...

Re: RE: Re: Sources: Cubs have a deal in place for Cole Hamels

Never say never. If the dude magically goes all ace down the stretch and wins the world series with a bigass effort in the playoffs they will at least consider paying him $20m to pitch next year. Not that there's any real chance of that happening. Isn't it essentially $14m leftover with the Rangers...

What would this mean for the luxury tax this year? Does it likely put the Cubs over?

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

When do we start to get concerned about Rizzo? The slumps are becoming more frequent, and when he slumps, he REALLY slumps. I don't know what his soft contact rate is, or where to even find such a thing, but it sure seems like he has more soft contact than anyone else in the Cubs lineup. He also has...

There is no reason to ever NOT backdate a DL stint, so that really isn't encouraging in the slightest.
