Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-10-19

4 more scoreless for Kohl with a 4:2

I know it's early AF but Eugene's lineup has 5 guys over 1.0 OPS lol

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

Darvish pitches by xwoba 2019 Cutter: 252 Slider 291 (lowest sample of batted ball events) Sinker 352 4 seam 453 (highest BBE) Other 2 Pitches dont even merit mentioning based on samples Can he just be a cutter/sinker/slider guy? Maybe throw the curve and eephus just enough to keep them guessing. He...

Re: RE: Re: General Chit-Chat thread

We had our twins just after midnight. My wife carried them to 38.5 weeks and they are 5 lbs 10 oz. I'm over the moon right now. Absolutely amazed. Twins are the best! Case in point, I’m a twin!

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Minor League Musings

Is that really par for the course? For a point of comparison, 2012 was the first draft with bonus pools. Here's the breakdown of players who reached 2+ career bWAR: 1st round: 14 players (1 Cub, Almora) Supplemental round (also 30 picks): 10 players (no Cubs, Johnson and Blackburn picked) All other...

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Minor League Musings

We talk a lot about their pitchers picks in the first few years being brutal but aside from the pre-packaged KB and the wart-filled Schwarber and Happ top 10 picks, their offensive picks were mostly really bad as well. They have had a basically unprecedented hit rate(which absolutely includes Schwa...

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Trade targets 2019

Could stretch him out to be a starter and they would save money. Hes a horrible starter. He has a 3.81/4.03/4.06 ERA/FIP/xFIP in 191 IP as a SP since joining the Cubs. Ok those are facts. Horrible is too strong of a word. But 191 innings in 38 starts. Hes handled with kid gloves. I guess I just don...

Re: RE: Re: Trade targets 2019

Today's Tribune wrote about possible trade targets and brought up the name of Leury Garcia. Maybe the crosstown rivals can swing a deal involving Garcia and Colome. Maybe a deal involving Montgomery + ???? might interest them. why would the white sox be interested in a 30 year old long reliever who...

Re: Kris Bryant is awesome and we were always right to love him

I would be willing to wager that his already mediocre exit velocity and hard contact take a big hit in those situations. He has a lot of wet farts. And he swings through a lot of meatballs.

Love to be proven wrong.

Passantino was nasty again for Iowa What’s this guys story? I say BN or Cubs Prospect guy tweet he didn’t top like 86 tonight. Does he have Hendricks like command? Is his delivery incredibly deceptive? Sorry. I hope I didn't come off as having seen his outing. I was just going off of the box score....

Re: RE: Re: Trade targets 2019

Do we need an elite LHRP or just a really good RP who dominates LHB. I tend to think we just need the latter. You know who has historically been good against LHBs....Brandon Kintzler. Career like .640 OPS against, sub .300 OBP, and this year in 43 PAs, LHBs are hitting 077/163/179 against him. But ...

Re: Chicago Bulls offseason

Good signing. Solid overall game. When him and Carter share the floor they'll be pretty stout in the paint.
