Re: 2020 Offseason Thread

I’m the same way, but projection models are rightly based on norms, none of which apply this season. How are they accounting for the 60 game season? It’s very difficult to build that in. Several of us have talked about how challenging it’s going to be for guys to be really stretched out and injury f...

Re: Cubs Sign Kohl Stewart

Prior to this Mooney said the Cubs were looking to sign someone from the group of Mike Foltynewicz, Chris Archer, and Carlos Rodon. I doubt this signing changes that, and one of those three will still presumably be the "big" add to the rotation. So that'll make this what we likely have to...

Re: Joc

I like this move. In LF he’s going to grade out well (speed, arm) and this gives us one of the best defense OFs in MLB imo. The bat is basically Schwarber, but he will provide more value overall at a lower cost.

Re: Jon Lester

Appreciation for him has definitely increased lately for me. In 2015 it was Jake, and in 2016 Hendricks won the ERA title and had the NLCS start and pitched pretty well in game 7, and still the first thing I see when I think Lester game 7 is the ball bouncing off Ross' head. But looking at the dump...
