Re: Baez impresses Baez

They gave Javy a Caught Stealing on that play last night. That's some hometown cooking. That was a steal. No it wasn't. He was picked off and an error caused him to be safe and advance. I wonder how that goes for advanced stats like BsR and stuff like that....his numbers should improve and he shoul...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Honestly, if I were the Nats, why not get a silly amount of prospects and value here instead of like, a draft pick.

They still have a realistic shot at the playoffs but I’d do it

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

Ive never seen a player with 50 or ABs electrify a cubs fanbase as much as Bote since...Jim Edmonds maybe?

Re: Tim Tebow Sucks

I have never felt more confident about something in my life: Tim Tebow will get a cup of coffee in the majors, suck, but will definitely steal a game from the Cubs.

It’s preordained. It’s written in the stars.

Re: Is Jason Heyward Fixed?

obviously one should not declare him fixed without like, several months of good play, but he's hitting the ball with authority for the first time since his week long nice stretches that he had both in 2016 and 2017

Since the season is one third through and makes for easy and clean math, let's have some fun with fWAR extrapolations Yay Bryant: 7.2 Schwarber: 5.1 Almora: 5.1 Zobrist: 5.1 Contreras: 4.5 Russell: 3.9 Baez: 3.9 Happ: 3.3 Morrow: 1.8 Edwards: 1.8 Cishek: 1.5 Yuck Rizzo: 1.8 Heyward: 1.2 Lester: 1.5...

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

I never thought he was all that bad defensively and all the gyrations that goofballs like Bernstein would put him through was unnecessary. He can play the field.

Re: Week 7 - DBag McGee @ Trubiskies - Noon

I don't even think the 2005 Kyle Orton games were managed this conservatively. Unbelievable. might've been worse especially given the fact that that team at least had an NFL WR. i still remember my exasperation at halftime of that falcons SNF game. then rex came in and immediately threw a like a 20...

Re: How many teams in each league should make the playoffs?

Before it was implemented I hated the wild card game idea but its actually been really exciting and added additional importance to the regular season and winning your division so I like it now.

Also the 2015 Cubs - Pirates game was one of my favorite sporting experiences ever

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

He's up to a 100 wRC+ and a .330 wOBA, and should be right around 100 on an OPS+ so he'll end up the year an almost exactly average major league hitter in 2017, after what looked like what might be a lost season.

Good for him.

After everything that's gone wrong this year, and being 2 games under at the all star break, the fact the Cubs can go 6-6 in the final twelve and win 90 games is incredible.
