Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I apologize for being one of the few people around here, during the offseason, who was against signing Heyward. The idea of being against paying nearly 200 million for a slap hitting corner outfielder? Clearly I was wayyyy off base. Congratulations guys. There is a great brain trust posting here. C...

Re: Joe Maddon says things

Man, it's so nice to have a guy in charge who gets it: “There’s two things you’re looking at there. Is the shutout that important? That would be a personal goal as opposed to a team goal. The team goal for me was to not have Jon throw many more pitches after 113 his last time out – and have him spi...

Re: john lackey sucks and we were always right to hate him

OK? Go start that thread and quit shanghaiing ol' Chiclets-chompers' thread. I've been a fan of Lackey's so far. He's very efficient with his pitch counts, which allows him to eat plenty of innings. And he doesn't beat himself with Walks. The fact that Lackey has a fiery competitive temper is icing...

Re: john lackey sucks and we were always right to hate him

The inning eating, strike throwing machine, John Lackey, gets this thread constantly trying to pick him apart. But Javy Baez, with his great physical tools being wasted by an awful approach, gets to slide. Makes sense.

Re: 2016 Bold Predictions Thread

Cubs give up McKinney, Vogelbach, Torress, Paul Blackburn, and more at the deadline for infield and another top of rotation starter. Torres is highly touted but still a couple years away from the big leagues. I don't know if he's capable of being a center piece for an elite starter. I'll throw a de...

There should be a thread for SC to post all his worries about thing while the rest of us enjoy the 110 win juggernaut. First and foremost congrats on another nice job of trolling.

Re: Addison Russell is awesome and deserves a thread

Russell platoons with no man. And I love Baez. Russell had a 527 OPS in 109 at bats versus lefties last year. If we're two months into the season and that trend continues I think it should be a serious consideration. Plus in some respects Baez represents an upgrade (particularly in power). I also l...

Re: Addison Russell is awesome and deserves a thread

Russell stated a while back he's hoping to steal more bases. In 244 minor league games he stole 44 bases in 53 opportunities. Anyone think Russell has a decent chance at having over a dozen steals, with a success rate at around 75 percent? Also if Russell, midway through the season, has another hard...

Re: Why is Carrie Muskat tweeting that fowler is back to the Cubs on a 1 year deal?

2013-2015 Fowler OPS: Versus Lefties: 870 Versus Righties: 733 Unless there is genuine concern over Heyward's ability to play Center Field Fowler should be platooning with Schwarber, not Soler. Soler, at his very worst, should be more than capable of putting together a righty OPS of around 733. Mind...

David Ross is an automatic out. I wouldn't bring him up as a solution to any problem. And just because the lineup has depth doesn't mean a potential problem area shouldn't be discussed.

Re: Projecting the 2016 Cubs

Miguel Montero is reaching the age range, especially for a catcher, where production could drastically drop at any point. Contreras, prior to last season, wasn't even a top 20 prospect in his own system. I think it's fair to ask if he can come close to replicating his great 2015 line. And the idea o...
