Re: 2019 Draft Thread

Mayo has us taking Hoese in his newest mock. I don't know if it's a good or bad idea, but I think he's the most interesting guy I've seen us associated with. BA too.

Hey guys, you seem to be enjoying the Cubs winning run a little too much so here's Addison Also Zobrist was scratched late yesterday for "personal reasons". He was also late to ST for "personal reasons", right before Harper signed with the Phillies. It could just be an actual pe...

Re: RE: Re: Chicago Bears offseason

It's going to be glorious if that 2nd first rounder in the Mack trade ends up being actually a trade back of 5ish spots. Pace doesn't really think like that. He'll probably try to get into the 1st or something. I think Brian was saying that it would be amazing if the Bears first rounder they gave u...

Re: Minor League Musings

Back In ‘14 or ‘15 - what was the peak number of Cubs prospects in the top 100? 6 or 7? MLB.com had 6 Cubs in the top 100 (top 72, really) and 4 in the top 50 at the end of '14. 3rd Bryant 5th Russell 36th Almora 48th Soler 53rd Edwards 72nd Schwarber At BA it was still six to start 2015, but even ...

I believe he had TJS in July so this is like a Smyly situation. It’s probably a two year deal. Have to keep him on the 40 man till season starts and then move him over to the 60-day DL.

It’s Loxas.... https://twitter.com/realcubsinsider/status/1069981485443284992?s=21 I’ve always been very skeptical of Loxas, but I think this is likely true. I mean it’s almost negligence for a team in contention to not check in with any reliever on the market. Granted I know he just seems to throw...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

I think "march" is more like a full on sprint. Who is the phenom we're tanking for in the draft? American Jack Hughes appears to be the consensus top pick. http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/23864766/nhl-meet-jack-hughes-record-breaking-no-1-ranked-2019-nhl-draft-prospect Although the top...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

On the Gray multi inning thing - are they still viewing him as a SP for 2020+? They should! I am not against the idea of regrouping in the pen, that’s a quality way to break in a potential long term SP I think there’s a lot of value in bringing in Jon Gray if you can this offseason. Every team is g...

Man this offseason was just ... it's crazy, out of all the FA signings made by this front office, what percentage of them would they leap at the chance to reverse?

Apparently Orioles are close to a deal with Victor Victor Mesa. They chose this year of all years to care. Oh well at least he’s not going to the Dodgers.

At the Em’s game. Marquez has looked really solid. Lots of babip bad luck and some bad defense. Still not sure if hot gun, but consistent 96 on the fastball.

Re: Morrow to the DL; Hancock stays up

First pants related injury of the year?

At least our closer didn’t break his hand punching a wall after getting beat by the Marlins.
