Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

I know Arenado is a great defender. I know he still has a .799 career OPS away from Coors, which isn't terrible. For 32 mil AAV I just....ugh.

Re: "Time makes fools of us all" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

Was it tongue in cheek when you tried to post evidence about why you were right? Just making sure I know which parts you were kidding about. Nah, I just wanted to defend my memory. Honestly, I remembered everything from "Kyle is not a major league player" to "get anything you can for...

Re: "Time makes fools of us all" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

Homeboy is slashing .170 .279 .283 .562 over the last month, so we might be past "he's playing hurt" into "he just sucks and is old"-territory*. *I think he's a turd player, so I MIGHT be biased. That was about Descalso. Like, why would I have been saying Schwarber is old? My fa...

Re: "Time makes fools of us all" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

Dude, it was completely tongue-in-cheek, and in the sixteen years I've been on here, I've very rarely come out and made any kind of statement like that. I luckily posted it right before he went on a tear that lasted the rest of the season, and tried to make an affable post out of it. I certainly did...

Re: "Time makes fools of us all" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

This seems like a good time and place to go on record in support of Schwarber. He had a 3 WAR year last year at 25, is only now getting consistent PAs vs. LHP (he's improved every year) and I think he has another level coming. Just my opinion. I'm probably going to quote myself here every time Kyle...

Re: 2020 roster

Wil Meyers 2016: .341 wOBA 2017: .335 wOBA 2018: .328 wOBA 2019: .316 wOBA 2019 was also his best year against LHP (.368 wOBA) and he had a K rate of almost 40% against them. FWIW Castellanos' worst wOBA in those 4 years was .341 in '17 and against LHP in 2019 he put up a .370 wOBA To me, these #s i...

Re: 2020 roster

Without a big splash, I'd just prefer

Darvish
Hendricks
Q
Lester
Chatwood

Pivetta just seems like a younger Chatwood with double the HR rate. I wouldn't mind him as insurance in AAA, I suppose.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Ugh. Schwarber went from a neutral defender in 17 to a very good defender in 18 to a terrible defender in 19. But not really.

Re: 2020 roster

I agree. I just think about Bryant on the 2002 Cubs, or the 2010 Cubs or the 2013 Cubs and laugh about how differently he would be perceived. We've become pretty spoiled.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Call me crazy but I don't think Soler needs the juiced ball to hit home runs. He's 27 and plenty of players at that age are still improving. Everyone is hitting a juiced ball and yet he's leading the AL. I anticipate he'll improve his walk rate next season and hit near 40 again. The guy is a pretty ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

While I'm certain there are multiple, fixable issues that would help this team win more baseball games, variance is a horsefeathers. Five 1-run-losses in a row go the other way and the narrative becomes "a resilient team that was always more talented than the rest of the division, who is peakin...

Re: It's Maddoning

He just seems like the kind of guy that is going to heavily (Dusty level) favor some players over others, and not necessarily based on talent. I base this solely on the ~100 or so words I've heard him speak.

Re: "Time makes fools of us all" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

Schwarber has a .775 OPS against LHP this season. He has only 353 career PAs against them. Sporadic PAs. He’s improved each year. The book is not written.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I just sorted AL players by OPS (minimum 250 PA)

1. Yordan Alvarez
5. Alex Bregman
10. George Springer
11. Michael Brantley
16. Jose Altuve
17. Carlos Correa
21. Yuli Gurriel


I mean.......come on. Chirinos is not on that list and he's been worth 3.4 BWAR.

What am I missing? He's 6 months younger than Almora but otherwise very comparable.
