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...

Padres fans now know how I felt when we signed Soriano... Ownership picking the wrong year and the wrong guy to open the pocketbook for. They immediately won the division the next two years. How was it the wrong year? wrong year in the sense that soriano was the best free agent out there. to this d...

are we really at the point where we're megathreading a $150M 8 year free agent signing in an offseason where nothing has happened? i think i'm going to crusade against these things again It’s a player who doesn’t affect us signing with a team that doesn’t affect us.

https://twitter.com/jonmorosi/status/965077975917121536 https://twitter.com/JonHeyman/status/965169876867407872 I can't decide what I think of this in terms of value. This isn't a horrific deal if he can be the 2015 and 2017 guy much more often than the 2014 and 2016 guy. And yet I'm still incredib...

Not sure if this should be its own thread. A group of friends and I are looking to make a weekendish trip to Wrigley this year. I'm the only member of the group that has been before.

Looking through Baseball Reference and it seems that I had erased from my mind that Luis Valbuena was our primary 3B for the three seasons before Bryant.
