Re: Cubs coaching staff 2019

I don't remember seeing this noted here: Tulsa Drillers hitting coach Terrmel Sledge is returning to the majors as the Chicago Cubs' assistant hitting coach. Sledge, 41, was an outfielder in the majors with the Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals and San Diego Padres from 2004-07. He was a teammate ...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

Zobrist is a great sell-high candidate, unlike most others on the team. I'd be more than fine with moving him in the right sequence of events.

What won't make people happy is that it *might* mean the Cubs are serious about keeping Russell.

Re: Lee Smith, Harold Baines elected to HOF

I’m all for a bigger HOF and making it more of a mueseum of the game instead of letting the voters using arbitrary measurements of worthiness so I like this and hopefully it opens up the flood gates for more guys getting in. Even with this HOF that you suggest, Harold Baines should not be in it. Ca...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Apparently you didn't hear that Schwarber isn't on the trade block, so we'll have to lure a team to take on Heywards contract by using Chatwood, Russell, Duensing, Kintzler, Bote, or Caratini. :lol: It's funny how you disappeared when the cubs were on top of the world and now you're back with a ven...

Brantley isn't really a CF anymore. If we're looking for a CF addition, I'd go Pollock.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

This hypothetical doesn't account for the fact that even when the offense was good, there was extreme variability from game to game. Average runs per game are misleading when the standard deviation is massive. I haven't bothered to run the numbers, but the variability has got to be far bigger than ...

Re: FanGraphs Cubs Top 31 Prospects List

In addition to his athletic gifts, scouts rave about Davis’ maturit...

Seriously; Tim's take is the kind that people here would be losing their minds over if it came from a Cardinals or Brewers message board. That's some primo KeithStone-ing. Tim did say he was talking about decline based on age. I read it that Zobrist is the only guy who is so old you have to expect ...

Re: Addison Russell is awesome and deserves a thread

Russell platoons with no man. And I love Baez. Russell had a 527 OPS in 109 at bats versus lefties last year. If we're two months into the season and that trend continues I think it should be a serious consideration. Plus in some respects Baez represents an upgrade (particularly in power). I also l...
