It’s sad that Russell isn’t even close to the worst on the 40.

Re: Cubs suck and we were always right to hate them (2019 negativity thread)

one of the more depressing things from a roster standpoint is we recklessly burned through prospect capital with extreme abandon: probably 2 guys combining for 80 HR this year that we threw away for 1-1/3 seasons of closer there's always people jumping in to justify Chapman trade but that always co...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I can pick endpoints to help me, too. The Dodgers have won 26 more games than the Cubs the last three seasons. We haven’t been on their level since 2016 Oh no, they've won 9% more games than us in the 3 seasons after we ran through them en route to winning a WS. Kyle, are... are you actually Clayto...

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

I still think the best move is to sign Castellanos and listen to offers for Schwarber. He's fun to watch when he's on a roll, but he can't hit lefties, can't pinch hit, and needs to be replaced defensively in close games. He's a great option for being a DH/platoon OF in the AL. Why can’t he pinch h...

Stupid would be not recognizing that they were conceding the season and claiming that trading away a 5 WAR pre-arb player for nothing is "reorganizing." Tommy Pham was traded because we have a fragile owner who didn’t like him firing off to the media about the organization. Zero to do wit...

Re: Kris Bryant is awesome and we were always right to love him

The way he's playing, 19 games for Lindor is damn near 1 fWAR. Now is this point where we jump to, "oh, well Bryant doesn't get to to hit #1, but if he did..."? Are you saying that you value Lindor over Bryant because he averages more PAs per game with a straight face, or is this part of ...

*Checks game logs*

Oh, so he actually missed 19 games to start the year instead of a dozen. Whoopsy-doodles.

Who cares how many games he missed? When discussing production, 29 PAs is a smaller difference than “19 games”

Re: Kris Bryant is awesome and we were always right to love him

Yeah I think it works if you bring in another star. Rendon is the most obvious, but there's a million permutations. For example, you could sign Rendon for 10/250ish and trade Kris to the Rays for Austin Meadows and Brendan McKay. You're comparable at 3b while only getting ~5M more expensive, and us...

Obviously his point is the roster is deficient not that Almora will get better. I get that. The roster is deficient. But Maddon's insistence on using Almora as much as he's done makes it even more inefficient. Saying you'd play Almora everyday is nonsensical. It's not a solution to anything. You ca...

I don’t blame Joe at all. In fact, I applaud him. There’s been a fair amount of dead weight on the bench and in the bullpen all season. At some point, you almost have to use them.
