Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I get people not liking his act or whatever as a fan but he seems like a manager that any player would love to play for. Forward thinking, acts as a players manager, does a great job balancing PT so everyone is fresh, puts young players in positions to prove themselves, would never throw a player u...

Re: Javy and Schwarber entering HR Derby

So glad Chris Berman doesn't do this anymore so I don't have to hear horsefeathers like "BACK BACK BACK ALL THE WAY TO ANNAPOLIS" i despise everything about chris berman, but the familiarity with those stupid calls that goes back to me watching these dumb things when I was 10 or 11 makes ...

Re: Javy and Schwarber entering HR Derby

Apparently they moved to a timed round format rather than the "until 10 outs" format. I don't know when that happened since I haven't watched the derby in a few years, but that sounds like an excellent change. i actually hate the format change i'd prefer they not rush so they can launch a...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Ok, sure. Javy is Gretzky. I made no comparison of the tools Gretzky had with the tools that Javy has. Only Javy’s awareness of the game and what’s going on around him. Understand now? Unfortunately, Javy doesn't hit like he knows where the ball is going to be. while sporting a 130 wRC+ imagine if ...

https://twitter.com/highkin/status/1009953283413196800 I don't agree with the comp, but it sucks that there might be some truth to this... Carlos Boozer was a very good player, especially at his peak with Utah. I'd be more than happy if that were his outcome. That said, it's kind of a weird comp IM...

I really want Memphis' pick Who do you want. I by no means follow the draft as closely these days, but had kind of resigned myself to one of Bamba, MPJ, or Young being there at 7 and each offering a similar boom/bust profile (granted all in uniquely different ways). It seems possible a trade up to ...

Chatwood is almost certainly the other.
