Re: Projecting the 2016 Cubs

Curious.....What type of slash line do you expect he'll put up in his prime? Prime? .275 .345 .460 BABIP it up by twenty points each in a career year. I think he's 4-5 years from a year like that if he does it though. you can't get behind a prospect you think will put up a .275/.345/.460 at his bes...

Re: Projecting the 2016 Cubs

russell doesn't just play a premium position. he plays it at an elite level. and he just hit 13 HR in less than a full season as a 21 year old and his minor league numbers suggest there's still more to his bat. and he walks at a decent clip already too.

Re: Projecting the 2016 Cubs

Way under. ...he says nervously while tugging at the collar of his shirt Nah. Russell is the kind of prospect/young player I can't get behind.

Re: BP top 101

Contreras wasn't a top 30 guy last year by most accounts. Ugh you're right...That's so dramatic. I thought at least Sickels had him in there. Who goes from consensus not-a-system-top-30 to top 60 or potentially better prospect at 23, 7 years into a pro career? That's so odd. In my defense, I had hi...

$10 a month is crazy. If they build strong traffic on a free site, they should be able to generate far more through advertising than they'll get in subscriber fees.
