Who is more popular in Colorado than Arenado? Or did you read that wrong?


Yeah, read it wrong sorry - though that referred to Bryant.

That said, there’s absolutely no way Arenado is the most popular Rockie ever. Not even close.

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

I can't imagine the Cubs bite on this without Arenado waiving or amending some of his opt-out flexibility. If he wants out of CO badly enough that's something he should be willing to do.

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

Surely the Cubs aren't so far gone that we'd trade for a slightly older, very slightly better, significantly worse contract just to say we did something. Occam’s Razor would imply that if we think the FO is sharp, if they did do that trade either: 1. They don’t think Nolan is just slightly better m...

Re: Mookie Betts and David Price Traded to the Dodgers

If LA can't win the title in a year Houston's been cleaned out by a cheating scandal, Boston gave them their best player just to count money, and the Cubs sat out the off-season just to count money, that would be depressing for them. I don't think what the Cubs did - or didn't - was much relevant t...

I still like our lineup's potential over the Doyers and still think Andrew Friedman can go screw goats

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

I'd certainly push the Padres for a "best and final offer" before trading Bryant anywhere else.

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

Not factoring in the draw that Kipnis is a nice Jewish boy from Northbrook, he's actually not a bad hitter if you strictly platoon him. My bigger concern is that his defense has declined as you would have expected for a MIF approaching his mid-30's, and he's a liability with the globe at this point....

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

I think your 5% is extremely generous. There may be a 5% chance a trade to the Braves happens, but that doesn't mean this scammer had any inside knowledge of it.

Unless the source has whiskers and uses the litter box, I ain't buying it.

Re: Mookie

I’m not sure outside the Cubble that two years of KB is worth much more than 1 of Betts. Mookie is a much better player.

Or any other season.

Only the sort of move you make if you've basically given up. Not a good baseball player and has the same flaws our roster was already riddled with.

Re: Cubs sign Jason Adam

Well, we signed a big money reliever last year that has a no doubt HOF resume in progress. How did that work out? There is (almost) no such thing as a sure thing in the bullpen. Anyone with a long enough record of success to give you warm and fuzzy feelings is probably about due for serious regress...

Re: Cubs sign Carlos Asuaje

In a sane world, this us simply a guy to push on Kemp and Descalso, with the idea being that there is one bench spot available that the three of them are competing for (maybe two while Nico opens the year in the minors?). But who horsefeathering knows at this point. Kemp, Descalso, Almora and this ...

Bryant 2015-2016: .384 wOBA Bryant since 2016: .382 wOBA Yeah he’s largely been the same player every year since then. I get being worried about the injuries but he isn’t really a different player now vs 2016. Maybe he’s lost a little speed. 2015-2016: .285/.378/.524 .385 wOBA, 143 wRC+, .240 ISO, ...
