Re: Cubs go Dutch with Giants, acquire Holland

Wow, just saw his splits..I didn't realize they were that extreme. Righties hit like Anthony Rendon against him and lefties hit like Daniel Descalso.

If this were next year with the batter minimum thing he might be out of a job entirely.

Re: Cubs go Dutch with Giants, acquire Holland

Completely agree. Hasn't Maddon even done the cutesy "have the lefty go play a position for a hitter in between lefties" thing the Rays did the other day? I'm thinking Travis Wood? This is something that was pretty iconic to the “Maddon is crazy/eccentric” mythos. Something that should ha...

Well, now Collins has been DFA'd because of the Derek Holland pickup.


yeah but it sounds like Holland is only replacing him on the 40 man for now...though I guess they'd have to give him a 25 man spot pretty soon

Note to Theo: It doesn't make sense to have a guy with a 43 OPS+ and only getting 10 PAs a month with no defensive value on the roster.

Re: Addison Russell

So your point is that Russell is better than Javy, Bote and Garcia? He's 100% better than 2 of them and a better SS than Javy In July Garcia has a 1.020 OPS to Russell's .723. That's a bigger sample size and a much bigger margin. Also Jon Lester has a 1.400 OPS in July. Arbitrary sample sizes are f...

Re: Piece of Garbage Sent to Iowa

This must be because of the 'not knowing the signs' thing right?

If it was performance based, I'd think someone like Almora (Iowa) or Descalso (DFA) or Brach (DFA) would be more deserving of a send off before Russell. If it was because he's a scumbag, that should have happened months ago.

Look at his home-road splits, horsefeathers no. That contract is horrible and he’s a bad defender. Gotta stop looking at H/R splits when evaluating Rockies. Why?

Re: Trade targets 2019

Rockies would supposedly listen to offers for Charlie Blackmon. Obviously would be among the best OF bats we could acquire but I'm sure it would take a lot to get him and he has 6 years and $106m left on his contract (last 2/$31 is in player options) and he's 31 right now.
