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

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

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...

He's rated as one of the best corner outfielders in the game right now

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.

I don't even think the 2005 Kyle Orton games were managed this conservatively.

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.

I can't even clown on the rando meatballer who wanders into this thread to attack Heyward because....why bother? He's right, for the wrong reasons, he's right to be disappointed.

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...
