I'd agree. Or even Happ at 2nd in place of Zo.

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

6 DRS in just 169 innings at third base. I know Maddon loves having Russell and Baez up the middle, and for good reason, but Bote has looked so good defensively, I really don't think we're losing much there with Bote starting over Russell. Hopefully he's still an above average hitter by October bec...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Any lists of available catchers. I saw some would-be 2019 FA Catchers. The only ones that seem even remotely interesting are all on teams still in the hunt. Would probably need to swing a trade. Devin Mesoraca Josh Thole Brayan pena Drew Butera Wouldn't mind seeing a weak-hitting defensive-minded Ca...

Re: The Terrible Umpires Thread

I'm still waiting for someone to explain how the strike zone will be determined. Using PitchTrax or whatever, is the pitch a strike if it just touches the rectangle box? Or does it need to be completely in the box? Or mostly in the box? And will catchers revolt because those with great pitch framin...

Re: NFL Preseason

https://twitter.com/drewmagary/status/1029747006980407297 The NFL is a team of conservative goons responsible for turning the brains of a large portion of our population into goo, and my preferred team, the Packers, is a fermented and condensed version of all that.

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

That brutal stretch of games for the VBs coming out of the ASB has not really been that brutal. They've played about equal to the Cubs, who've had a pretty light schedule over the same period. They're 4 back in the loss column, though. Continuing to play "about equal (but still worse)" th...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Can anyone explain where Jim Hickey falls with the underwhelming performance of the Cubs pitching staff this season? Has he made anyone better?? I get that Lester is getting up there in age, so he's bound to eventually lose effectiveness. And I get that Darvish is injured. But what about everyone el...

Re: Addison Russell

I agree with above. No reason to give him away or "blink first" on a so-so trade. The Cubs are pretty good this year with a sh!t rotation. Adding Harper or Machado and they can still be pretty good with a sh!t rotation. Maybe, just maybe, not playing everyday turns him around. At least eno...

Re: 2018 HR Derby {Discussion & Transaction Thread}

Drop Miguel Sano (MIN)*

Add Jose Ramirez (CLE)


*I'm super glad I kept him the entire time he was in the minors. And now that he's back and actually hitting dingers, it's time to jettison him for Ramirez.

Last move of second half.

From MLB Trade Rumors Arrieta, who ultimately signed with the Philadelphia organization later in the winter, tells Wittenmyer that he does not really believe that Epstein expected to get a deal done when he called with a “take it or leave it” proposal of six years and $120MM. That statement reflects...

Re: 2018 HR Derby {Discussion & Transaction Thread}

Wondering how much longer I should hold on to Miguel Sano. :-k Wasn't he just called back up from the minors? I kinda got stuck with him. I had to make two moves early in the first hals, and then he got sent down. Had to make a move right after the ASB, and didn't want to burn both so early. So I h...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Does a trade for another starter possible free up Monty (and others) for a bigger trade? Or is it to get Monty in the BP to add to the super bullpen?
