Re: The Chili has gone bad

Usually I don’t think hitting coaches matter or do much at all, so I’m actually pretty surprised to see hitters legitimately thought he ruined their swings.

I just wanted a blood sacrifice for this hell hole of a season, but if it actually helps fix things, all the better

Re: It's Maddoning

I'm totally fine going in with Maddon on the last year of his deal and see what happens. Maybe its playing with fire and unfair and puts a weird amount of pressure on Joe and his managing will slip. I dont know. My thinking regarding managers is that, tactically, almost all of them are gonna do weir...

Re: It's Maddoning

i 100% do not desire Maddon getting fired no matter how weird he gets in games

however, if Chili Davis isn't immediately given the boot its pitchforks and torches time

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

I don't know, 48 plate appearances means like, nothing to me. I'm sorry. The fact his OPS went *up* in "Medium Leverage" in 2015 and 2017, and factoring in his 2015 and 2016 Playoff mastery tells me that...it's not a psychological thing. There are lots of ways I think this team are a colle...

Re: Why does this 90+ win team's season feel lacking?

its mostly the injuries and disappointing progress from young players I think. Almost nobody is playing *better* than they have in recent years, with the extremely notable exception of Javy. (You could argue Schwarber I suppose, but he's smack dab in the middle of what reasonable projections are for...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

the 2018 Javier Baez season has been one in which I've learned to throw all my closely held Moneyballish biases away and firmly believe in a dude who just hacks at everything, hits for enormous power and has All The Intangibles needed to win the MVP I mean, seriously, more than anything else this du...

Re: Addison Russell

listening to the Score right now....Joe Maddon's press conference was not great. The tweet quoted is right, when asked about the blog post he said "Should I have read it?"

Like come on dude.

Re: Good, Morrow to work on the sabbath

oh god I forgot about Jason Marquis. He pitched like he, personally, hated me, but also ended up being basically average on the season. He was the first iteration of the Jason Hammel Type.

I just dislike Kintzler that much....it's no deep DLR love.

Kintzler is legitimately one of the worst pitchers I've ever seen in a Cubs uniform. Maybe I'm being irrational but I hate this dude beyond measure

Re: Kyle Hendricks: Somehow Greg Maddux

I really hope Hendricks gets his due alongside Rizzo, Bryant, Lester, Javy, in 10-15 years when everyone looks back at this Cubs era. None of this happens without him somehow unlocking a god mode changeup and succeeding wildly with a profile that no other pitcher in the big leagues has. Game 6 agai...
