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

Re: Kris Bryant is awesome and we were always right to love him

You folks will just have to be satisfied with Javy and Rizzo hitting 40 dongs each

Oh, and Heyward on pace for more than 20

I refuse to believe that Brandon Morrow will ever pitch again for the Cubs until I see him on a mound in a Cubs uniform in a game

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

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

i'm surprised to see such a large minority of people who hate him. i'm .... at worst neutral at best somewhat positive about him? He was a fun dude on the field. 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...

Re: Gigantic Willy Style - The Willson Contreras Thread

This is the situation: We could probably find a decent defensive catcher who would probably struggle to put up a .700 OPS Putting Contreras in LF denies you a good bat at Catcher, but we may not have anyone else that can put up .800+ OPS in the OF anyway. Is the difference in value made up there? Id...

Re: ChiCargo Cubs - AKA that bad man can't hurt you anymore

I’m 100% ok with this move. I didn’t realize CarGo was so bad that he wasn’t even on a roster.

If he does ever make the MLB roster I fully expect him to hit a few dramatic home runs and never once sniff a .300 OBP
