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: Week 7 - DBag McGee @ Trubiskies - Noon

I was gonna be shocked the Panthers punted but the chance the Bears get a first down is infinitesmal so its not the worst move

Its pretty incredible to play a game like this in 2017 and be in a powerful position to win. So, thats something.

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.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

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.

Re: Send Schwarber Down!!

Hahaha, Schwarber is now OPSing .747 with a .195 batting average. He's trying to do all he can to be a valuable hitter while being under the Mendoza line. However a .747 OPS is only a 92 OPS+ this year, which shows you just how much the juiced ball has affected the run environment. Just 3-4 years ag...

Re: Cubs Acquire Justin Wilson & Alex Avila for Candelario, Paredes & PTBNL/Cash

I wonder if a trade like this is a signal towards approaching the playoffs with every starter on a very short leash and letting a super powerful good bullpen handle roughly half or a majority of each game. A lot of teams were starting to move in that direction over the past couple years, and the Ind...

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

He did, for whatever its worth, just pull his OPS above .700 today too

In terms of arbitrary stat lines, it'll be nice to see him pull that average over the Mendoza line. Let him work the rest of it out over the rest of the season.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Honestly I just think a lot of the time starters just get really tired and once the postseason rolls around they're totally exhausted and facing really good teams

but maybe thats too convenient an explanation
