Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-11-18

This has been my problem with Short this season. He went from a guy who - at worst - walked and struck out at about the same rate to someone who strikes out way more than he walks and hasn't had that big a power increase to offset it. I don’t think he gets enough credit here for hitting like he hit...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

The Bears gained 3.7 YPC on rushes instead of 9.9 YPA on passes. They were well below average when running the ball, but well above average when passing it. They had a better success rate as well (53% when passing vs 41% when rushing). Yet they ran the ball more often than any other team in the NFL...

Re: Cubs trade Eloy, Cease, others for Quintana

I'm not too worried about losing Eloy. Even with him destroying AAA it's doubtful that he's much more than Schwarber. Maybe we chose the wrong arm to cash him in for, but using him to shore up the rotation was absolutely the right move. Cease is looking more and more likely to actually be something...
