Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Random thought I just had...did Lester feel as fait accompli as Harper does right now? I can't quite place myself there but I remember there being a lot of talk that Theo would go after his old guy that offseason. Obviously, we weren't near as easy a sell as we are now, so that probably changes thin...

Re: Which Crazy Surprise Things Will Happen?

I don't think it's that crazy that Schwaber has a .950 OPS. I actually think it might be one of the safer predictions. It's a pretty high bar...especially for a guy who prob profiles as a .250ish hitter at best in terms of average (especially with all the shifting against him). Only 10 qualified hi...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Fuller not expected to sign a long-term deal. Don’t know if that’s Kyle’s choice or the Bears’. Had an up and down career, but PFF’s top-rated CB last year. Any good FAs if they don’t franchise tag him? I don't think he was their top rated CB. He had the top rated single game of any CB (against Cin...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I know generally speaking batting order doesn't overly matter... but if we are going to assume Schwarber/Bryant/Rizzo top 3 most of the time vs RHP do you guys think the pitcher batting 8th will get any thought to get that "extra leadoff guy" in front of those 3? We completely went away f...

Re: Hosmer to the Padres - 8 Years $144M

I don't think it's a terrible deal if they can actually get him to start lifting the ball more and stop hitting so many damn groundballs. I don't know if you want to tinker with his swing, but it feels like he should be way better. He also seems like a good defensive 1B, but the defensive metrics d...

Re: Offseason Transactions

I don't disagree... But few thought it was a good contract at the time, and in hindsight, I don't think anyone would have done it again (we got what, maybe 2 WAR from the last four or five years we had him? ). At the time, I would have preferred opening up the pocketbook a year or two earlier and n...

Re: Offseason Transactions

I'm not defending Hendry, but there's a humongous difference between those 2 moves. At least the Cubs signed a bunch that off season. Bought themselves into being the favorites. Plus, Sori was a hell of a lot better player than Hosmer. I don't disagree... But few thought it was a good contract at t...
