Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Since the season is one third through and makes for easy and clean math, let's have some fun with fWAR extrapolations Yay Bryant: 7.2 Schwarber: 5.1 Almora: 5.1 Zobrist: 5.1 Contreras: 4.5 Russell: 3.9 Baez: 3.9 Happ: 3.3 Morrow: 1.8 Edwards: 1.8 Cishek: 1.5 Yuck Rizzo: 1.8 Heyward: 1.2 Lester: 1.5 ...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

This could be another thread entirely, but im confused by the rhetoric that the bullpen is getting overworked. If you look at the appearance and IP leaderboards, the only Cub showing up in like the top 50 is Cishek, and he’s 1) not all that high 2) a lower risk given the way he gets hitters out(arm ...

Re: Albert Almora: Somehow a slow Grady Sizemore?

The one thing I'll stand up for with Almora's BABIP is that he's been much better about going to right field on pitches to the outside, and even though those mostly aren't frozen ropes they're often singles because of the approach. Much rather him letting the ball travel and looping it to right than...

Re: Albert Almora: Somehow a slow Grady Sizemore?

The walk rate is better than I would've guessed, and improving. If he's taking his walks that's gonna mean real good things. https://i.imgur.com/GsuOq3N.png I'm still a skeptic of pretty much any hitter with his offensive profile, but there's definitely a 'good enough' point where he doesn't need a ...

Re: CEJ to the DL with Shoulder Inflammation

Also, it's telling how many people have gotten at least a token shot at bullpen innings before Maples this year. He's made it blindingly obvious he's not ready, but still a precipitous fall.

Re: "Finish this!" - The 2018 Rizzo Thread

I will admit that as recently as a week ago Rizzo's full season line was making me a little uneasy since optically I wasn't getting the sense he had a monster May. Very glad to see that wasn't reality.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-29-18

If I had to guess, it's keeping his pitch count low enough so he's still a MLB possibility for later in the week, even if he isn't getting called up for sure.

- McKennie is gonna be quite the enforcer some day but the newborn puppy enthusiasm/sloppiness that a lot of these young guys have results in a lot of dangerous tackles in his role.

I just ditched Directtv and no longer have cable. What's my best best for streaming the world cup? Lots of games will be on Fox so if you have antenna reception you'll get a decent number of games that way. Outside of that, a trial/one month of any of the streaming services that offer FS1 would be ...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Random, probably uneducated thoughts, from back to front: - can we really not do better than Alex Bono, even for a youth movement? He has nothing to do in this game but I’ve never been all that impressed - Palmer-Brown and Lichaj have been fine, Zimmerman looks much more refined and it’s not hard to...

In many cases the player can update them yearly or with some regularity.
