Re: Trade targets 2019

You’re not making a deal to hypothetically beat the Dodgers in a short series. That’s insane.

You make a deal to shore up a team so they can clinch the division. I’m not positive they’re making any deals either

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Just tooling around looking at stats and I see erstwhile Cub Jorge Soler currently has 26 homers on the year. The Royals have, astonishingly, no 40 homer year by a player ever, so he’s got a good chance at smashing that

Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

Sending Montgomery for a back up is a fleecing for the Royals but what can you do? He’s been pretty bad and I’ve been beaten into submission by bad moves by the front office

Oh well

So basically David Bote with slightly worse defense

Hey, he endeared himself to me by crushing some baseballs. He's obviously better than DeScalso and possibly Russell already

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

The only thing Kyle Schwarber leads the league in is really stupid circular arguments about a guy who's like, a decent but has not proven himself to be a good or great player.

Everyone should just shut up about him. He's fine. Go away. Talk about Heyward or something. There's no story here.

Re: It's Maddoning

I still don't believe there is any such skill as "hitting with RISP" I just think its mostly bad luck

Maybe a little bit of choke. There's certainly no special approach that can change it. Just being better hitters.

Re: NL Central: Vaunted Defending Champion Brewers and others

Being six games over and having a -1 run differential is hardly anything special, there are teams that play way worse and end up with way better records, like the 2007 Diamondbacks.

The team that should be really upset is the reds with a +48 run differential and a losing record

Schwarber has basically stabilized at where he's gonna be as a hitter, I just want him to unleash the Dong and have a career year where he hits like 50 fat dongers

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

It’s weird, Heyward is having a relatively Ho-hum season, but adding another 20-30 points to his OPS like he’s done every successive year as a Cub. He’ll run into a home run every week or so. By the end of the contract, who knows, he may break an .800 OPS Agreed, the offensive numbers would be fine...

Re: David Ortiz shot and wounded in DR

The fact that he got shot by a bunch of corrupt cops in a place that the US has helped destabilize is not a fun story though. my best wish...

Re: Cubs in agreement with Craig Kimbrel 3/$45m

As a person who routinely doesn’t pay enough attention to what’s going on, I thought Kimbrel was coming off an injury and that’s why he hadn’t signed a deal until now. It never ever occurred to me that he could be fully healthy and not find a deal with anyone more than two months into the season. It...
