Re: 2019 HR Derby [Discussion & Transaction Thread]

That's annoying. Held the lead for the last month and a half only to lose on a technicality.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I don't think there was an option, just rumors or something that he had been assured that he was safe and going to be the manager next year.

Re: Cubs Manager Search

I know a lot of people are predicting Girardi and while I'm obviously not going to dismiss this outright, I think they're more interested in somebody like Ross or Loretta because they want more say in the day to day running of the team (line up construction, bull pen use, etc). So to me they want a ...

Re: Mookie

The Red Sox want to compete next year despite cutting salary. They're not doing a rebuild like Baltimore and are going to be more interested in MLB/high minors pieces than maybe higher upside but farther away prospects. Contreras/Schwarber as a main piece for Betts is a good starting point. A. Who k...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

16 or 17. They're tired with az right now.. If philly sweeps and the Cubs get swept they'll tie but I'm not sure about the tie breaker. That's the only team that is ahead of them that can reach them. AZ, the Mets, and Boston are all tied ir within 1 of the Cubs.

Re: 2020 roster

I think Theo goes scorched earth on this roster. I think the only untouchables are Rizzo, Javy and Hendricks. Everyone else is various levels of available. Heck Rizzo might even be available but I think they want his clubhouse presence and the Cubs probably value a 30 year old 1B with 2 years left ...

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...

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.

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.
