Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

So it's July 4th in 2019 and there's a hashtag on Twitter for people who are pissed at a short girl playing a Disney mermaid princess. I hadn't actually seen a heightist tweet agreeing with the hashtag when boom, the obvious answer: https://twitter.com/shoe0nhead/status/1146946244566224898 Disney, y...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-4-19

Lots of deep cut guys doing well today: - Pinango doubled, has reached base in all 26 games played this season, averaged dropped to .366 with a .120 IsoSLG (way above league average) and 8% Ks in 110 PAs - Ezequiel Pagan, Fabian Pertuz, and Pedro Martinez combined to go 6/14 with a BB, a couple Ks (...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-3-19

Davis' double drove in what ended up the winning run. Christopher Morel's got a .170 IsoSLG with a 21% K rate (league nearly 24%) after last night over 253 PAs, seems like a high energy guy, flashses some speed and baserunning (took home on a passed ball without hesitation, steals other bases too), ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-3-19

Sweet, good to get someone in with both a power fastball and SP potential. I don’t really care how many innings he throws this year, maybe as few as a a dozen. I just hope he’s ready to log 130+ pro innings next year with all the bells and whistles - velocity, athleticism, health, three or more pitc...

Not hard to imagine Quintero being a traits buy....LH power at catcher spot is desirable, he's already pretty tall and physical at 16 if his dims are right...Not available everyday

Re: International Free Agency, 2019-2020

Whoa. No idea why, but I was under the assumption both Quintero and Made were going to get similar bonuses. Cubs obviously think this kid is pretty special to fork over $3 million. $3 million is Gary Sanchez money at C IIRC so agreed, they must be pretty high on him and his LH power. His MLB.com st...

Re: International Free Agency, 2019-2020

I wonder where the IFAs signed by the Cubs will be coming from this year. Feels like they’ve been leaders in Mexico, Colombia, and Panama in recent years, may still have a presence in and remain opportunistic in Cuba and then Asian countries, have tried but not done much/anything in countries like B...

Re: Trade targets 2019

I’m into “exploring” trading Bryant everyday without ever once actually trading him. The Cubs should be looking to trade for some poor team’s Bryant this offseason, like Lindor who really might shake free soon, rather than actually trading the best player in the org. Already fell for the prospect tr...

Re: Trade targets 2019

Do a mini sell off, horsefeathers this team. They don’t deserve any prospect capital spent on it. That seems built into how they’ll work the deadline anyway. Schwarber, Almora, Happ, Bote, Montgomery, Chatwood, Caratini, a bunch of shuttle pitching...Heyward, Darvish if some team is feeling even mo...

Outstanding outing from Richan: 7 IP / 0 HRs / 9 Ks / 4 Hs / 2 BBS / 1 ER Miguel Amaya stole a base Robel Garcia’s in LF again Brennen Davis obviously having his Isaac Paredes 5 K game (0/3 with 3 Ks).

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-1-19

Hot take: DSL numbers aren’t meaningless. Right off the bat we know age is massive with extremely few prospects still there past 18. Then in 2016 we saw the best performer relative to league in key stats like IsoSLG and K rate - Amaya - become the org’s top prospect as several other top performers (...

Gallardo is indeed pitching, got Bobby Witt Jr. to ground into a force for the first out before a couple walks ans a couple Ks
