Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

If a rich retired guy got divorced with a young child would he pay child support based on the zero dollars per year income, or would it be based on his worth derived from previously earned money? Varies by state. In my state, the formula for child support is based on the income differential. If he ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Yeah, the ever escalating horsefeathers of seeking out players like Chapman and Murphy, and the ongoing enabling of Russell, all while talking out of the other side of their mouth about things like character and whatnot. Seemingly just rolling right along with the owners crying poor, and then demon...

Re: Why send Bote down?

So every team doesn't carry 14 pitchers? :D Seriously, my guess is that they wanted Cishek back right away and the only pitcher with options is Wick who's pitching well which means they had to send down a position player to make room for him. They probably saw Bote as both the most expendable and th...

Re: Zobrist Begins Minor League Rehab

Yeah, 3-4 months out for a guy in his late 30s in the middle of a divorce warrants more than 22 PAs. I want Zobrist ready for October more than anything else, October bats will definitely be there for him no matter what, and don't think he has to be rostered before September to be playoff eligible ...

Re: Addison Russell

We’ve been over how it’s debatable he’s one of the best 25. Also we save money at this point by him being in Iowa. He had bonuses for days being on the active roster.

He will be on the Cubs the same time they call up Russell when the rosters expand Zobrist will likely be called up before then so he's eligible for the playoff roster.

Re: Addison Russell

It's still Happ who would get sent down for Russell to come up. They could just DFA Tony Kemp like Houston did. Kemp is over 2 years older than Russell, a far less defender with a lower MLB OPS. You know, you could just cut to the chase and say "I don't want anyone on the team who might take p...

Only time he didn't hit in the majors this yeas was when dealing with the hand injury. #BEST25 So to summarize, ...

So under the new single-trade-deadline rules, Lucroy won’t be able to make the postseason roster, correct? Sorry if I missed this earlier — I just didn’t see were it was explained. What if, God forbid, Willson can’t go? you can't make trades post deadline, but lucroy was acquired after DFA. Not a t...

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

Trading him on the back of these two VERY team-friendly team options the next two years is what makes the most sense to me (if we're talking from a brutally cold value assessment). I don’t see that being the case. He’s likely more valuable to us than what he returns. Even if he only costs like $29 ...

Re: Heyman - Lucroy to Cubs Done

Well, his .689 OPS at Busch bodes almost as poorly as his .627 OPS at Wrigley. OPS better than KB's .621 in St Louis, and at least JL gets on base there hitting .295 with a .337 OBP for that OPS. They both have the same amount of hits in St Louis this year, but KB has 17 more AB Wow, thanks for poi...

I don't think Greg Gross is playing anymore. Great pinch hitter, though. Hit .322 for the Cubs in '77 with five homers. He only hit two more homers in the other 16 years he played.
