Re: International Free Agency Thread 2017-2018

...In fact, MLB added $300k to the Cubs' pool for 2018-19 because of this.... You guys have probably already detailed this, but have the Cubs already spent this, and everything else? Or based on your tracking of the big-ticket spendings, does this $300K plus some other unspent $$ perhaps give the C...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

i want harper and everything, but i think the rotation has to be the priority. i'm not cool with starting 2019 with the current rotation at all. If you sign Harper (or Machado), you can trade some combination of cost controlled cheaper position players (Almora, Bote, Happ, Russell, etc.) for pitchi...

Badler has the details on Serrano: https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/how-the-cubs-lost-their-top-2017-international-prospect/ The summary: Most Mexican teams only give 25% of the signing bonus to the players but they're not limited to that. Tijuana actually gave Serrano 50% because he was a bi...

Re: #NotAllPitchers

I've missed Lester's last few starts. Any theories as to what's going on? Results seen more than what we would expect from regression since the break, but I don't know if velocity is down, is he fighting their some discomfort, etc... Should we be looking at shutting him down for a bit, even if it m...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-11-18

Have you guys gotten any updated scouting info on Keegan Thompson? His outing drops his AA and composite season ERA's below 3. Over his last 8 starts, 5 have been shutout outings. 5 earned runs spread out over 8 starts is pretty good work. Thompson, Rucker, and Swarmer have been in a pretty outstan...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-11-18

Coghlan hit a home run again today for Iowa. On the 2-year anniversary of the time he called for time, wasn't granted time, stepped back in the box and smacked a 2-run single against the Cardinals.

When Short earned the distinction last year of the batter at High-A whose hitting profile most resembled the sort with which Matt Carpenter and Daniel Murphy and Justin Turner have succeeded in the majors, it seemed like a positive indicator for his future, seeing as he complemented that high-conta...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

I know I'm a big giant baby but am I the only one expecting to get some really bad Kris Bryant news any day now? Bryant said today he still had no idea when he would play or begin a rehab assignment. But he also took swings yesterday for the first time, so it was actually a good day: https://twitte...

Bailey Clark: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K. Wonder if the AFL is in the offing for him. There are a few injured guys who could use the innings - Alzolay, Steele and Clark. Hultzen also had another scoreless inning with 2 Ks. Probably too late for him too meaningfully contribute to the big league team b...

he's a 25 year old non-prospect with 78 major league plate appearances, and there are posts about him moving bryant off third, wondering why everyone missed on him, calling him the next star, etc. i'm not saying he sucks or that he doesn't have value to the cubs. hopefully he can be a late bloomer ...
