Re: Happ to AAA to Start Season

Psst. Ian Happ isn't that good He’s been worth 3.3 WAR in two seasons he’s played as a 22 and 23 year old. Averaging less than 2 WAR per year is not good. I don't care how old he is. If he sucks, send him down. Don't let him work out his mechanics in important games. I'm fine with this thinking and...

He’s good, he needs to improve in areas but he’s good and given the options we have for the 12 position players to make the OD 25-man he deserves to be on it. I’m glad we’re making these guys ...

That’s what I was thinking too, but wasn’t there room for Happ and Adames with Russell being suspended? Or would that be 13 position player guys?

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Speaking of Contreras, fangraphs is now incorporating framing into catcher defense and Contreras' first 2 seasons now stand as 2.5 WAR years, and last year was 0.9. Additionally Posey's 2012 season is now at 10.4. what about Montero? Overall he got a 13+ WAR career boost. He went from 15.something ...

Re: That Eloy Jiminez contract may be a real thing

KB is going to make ~$75 million after all his team controlled/arb years (he’s at ~$26 mil after this year not including his signing bonus). Figure he gets around $20 mil next year and $30 in final year of arb. So it looks like there could be savings of $30-40 mil if Eloy hits his absolute ceiling ...

Re: Trout signs massive extension (12/$430)

They should, idk if they will. He’s not making a ton more when he hits FA at 30 in all likelihood and can lock in a solid amount and take any risk out of the equation. there’s been some quiet buzz that he’s upset about the russell stuff and we know he’s upset about the way the front office abused t...

Re: Trout signs massive extension (12/$430)

What would you project him to get, either as an extension pre-FA (3 years left including this year) or as a 30 year old FA? Do I have to acknowledge and play along with, therefore enabling, the owners’ collusion or can I go with what he should be worth? Bryant’s career pre-2018 was basically a top ...

Re: Trout signs massive extension (12/$430)

I still think he made up his mind he wouldn't extend back during the service time gaming. He seems like the type to hold that grudge. We'll see. I bet they've only offered him roughly the Rizzo extension x~20%. Unless he's really holding a grudge and back to his normal self this year I'd be he's ge...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Is there even any players that could have been realistically extended this offseason? (outside someone taking an insanely team friendly deal) I think priority 1 should be Bryant, and I think it will happen, but you have to prove his shoulder isn't destroyed. Yeah, going through the list I don't see...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Hot take: Clinton-Dix is a high quality DB whose reputation took a hit thanks to the inflated passing numbers of the day. I think he’s better than the numbers. The Packers lack of a pass rush lately I think makes the secondary guys grade out and look worse. They’ve had multiple guys leave from the ...

Re: Will the 2019 Cubs finish above .500?

I’ll say somewhere between 88 (if the division really turns out to be a death march and everyone wins over 80 games, unlikely but who knows) and 95 (team or two in division underperforms and we have more things go right than wrong).
