Re: Regular Season Rumors

Someone refresh my memory because I am, of course drawing a blank: is there something annoying about Murphy besides him getting some really big hits against the Cubs? Because those other three dorks were and are varying levels of genuinely obnoxious turdbags. He said he didn't agree with the gay &q...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

For those that have the Athletic, the bitter Dusty article is interesting. Still hates the Cubs and is still pissed about the dropped third strike call where Javy hit the catcher. The conversation about analytics is rich. Rosenthal: Dusty Baker opens up on the Nats, his career, racism, the state of...

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

That brutal stretch of games for the VBs coming out of the ASB has not really been that brutal. They've played about equal to the Cubs, who've had a pretty light schedule over the same period. They're 4 back in the loss column, though. Continuing to play "about equal (but still worse)" th...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I'm trying to figure out how the Padres and Pirates got the exact same jersey (as I typed that I got a bit paranoid, please note I'm mildly colorblind so If the aren't actually the exact same colors I blame that) They look the same to me. Cubs, Dodgers, Royals and Jays all look the same colors to m...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Man, I really miss watching Manny Ramirez hit. Ah, I miss watching Ken Griffey Jr. (in his prime) hit, but what's the point in mentioning it lol . Also, Ichiro when he first came over was something else. Manny was a great hitter, but I never felt that awe-inspired watching him hit. https://frinkiac...

I'm 100% on the Harper bandwagon, but I appreciate the cost-benefit-analysis of saying Eloy might give you 70% of Harper at 1% of the cost

I would be surprised if Eloy becomes 70% of Harper.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Yeah, didn't mean it as a comparison really. Just was looking at Manny's stats and remembering how good he was and it's crazy to me that Javy is on that level overall this year. Speaking of crazy stats, I also saw something on Twitter comparing Bryant’s first 100 or so games in 2015 to Javy’s this ...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

I know RBIs are dumb but I still want Javy to get like 130 of them. He's really becoming Manny-esque at the plate. Manny Ramirez had a 14% career walk rate. Yeah. I love Javy but Manny's a top ~20 hitter of all time. Him being Manny-esque at the plate would likely put him in conversation for best p...

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

I demand a Rich Harden-esque 2nd half out of Darvish when he returns Fun fact: Rich Harden's 71 IP with the Cubs in 2008 that we remember as being so dominant is more or less Yu's career numbers over 800 more innings from a Ks, BBs, FIP standpoint. In short, I like Yu Darvish and hope he's healthy ...
