Re: Food Monstrosities

I haven't seen those but I did see this the other day and had to look up what it meant, because I didn't find the description on the bag very helpful. Weird Canada stuff. https://www.fritolay.com/images/default-source/default-album/ruffles-all-dressed.png Those are horsefeathering awesome. I can on...

Re: Cubs calling up Hoerner?

This doesn't feel like an actual rumor or move, just Sullivan making horsefeathers up.

Re: Breakdown of Cubs Bullpen Options for 2020

My predictions on some of these: Free agents: Maybe Kintzler or Strop if they come cheap enough. Cedeno is probably broken. He may get a minor league offer. Club Options: Morrow is obviously gone, and the only way Holland gets his optioned picked up is if he somehow pitches lights out vs both leftie...

Re: Minor League Musings

Also, unless I am mistaken, Underwood Jr is out of options next year and can't be on the Iowa shuttle. You are not mistaken. Kyle Ryan, Allen Webster, Alec Mills and Randy Rosario are also on that list. Rowan Wick will have an option remaining but can elect free agency if sent down. Webster and Ros...

The only way Maddon is back next year is if the Cubs win the World Series.


And even then I doubt it.

Dante Bichette amassed close to 2,000 hits, 1,100+ RBI and a .299 batting average with a career war of 5.7.



Fangraphs has him at 8.9, but what is amazing is his career def value is -165.5


Which is 34th worst.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Will Mark Grace make the Baseball Hall of Fame or will he fall short? It’s a question many have pondered since his retirement in 2003. Uhhh who exactly is pondering this? Mark Grace was first eligible for election on the 2009 ballot. He got, surprisingly, 22 votes (4.1%) and was immediately dropped.

We probably can't afford him, but in the hypothetical world where we could, how does it work this early in the season? I keep thinking back to August/September waivers, where it's based on your record...does that apply this early on? Or is this a different situation entirely? I think for a while it...
