Re: RE: Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

Who are you reading/talking to that looks at Contreras in a negative light regarding baserunners? Every time Lester pitches a national game, the broadcasters always make sure to at least briefly interrupt their obsessive yammering about the throwing yips to point out that Contreras is a magnificent...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

i was lucky enough to not care about the cubs until about 1995, so he was just some dorky horsefeathers who we could never ever beat on the braves by then (even though i was aware of him having been on the cubs). i just remember really hating him.

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

Someone posted on PSD that Darvish has allowed 43/45 on stolen base attempts since 2014, which is the highest success clip in MLB and has a time of 1.7 seconds to home, which is just bad. Just probably something to keep an eye on. For context Darvish has allowed 43 SB in 431 innings since 2014 (so ...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

i know we won't need to do anything else, but curious what other moves people think we make after signing harper. do they try to deal someone of the schwarber/happ/almora group, one of heyward/zobrist, send la stella off to wherever jake lands, or just say horsefeathers it and keep everybody? havin...

4-5ish

my point was that our best players would still have seasons that we'd expect out of them and he'd still beat them out

I'm well past the point of being surprised if any pitcher puts up a bad year.


yeah, i mean, just look at our staff in the first half of last year

Re: Which Crazy Surprise Things Will Happen?

Quintana, Darvish, Lester or Hendricks having a bad year would be a surprise. Lester wouldn't shock me that much at this point. In completely arbitrary and made up probabilities, i'd have him like 1/3 being bad, 1/3 being meh/good enough, and 1/3 being very good. Darvish and Q would shock me, yeah,...

Re: Which Crazy Surprise Things Will Happen?

Agree that Darvish and Almora seem the most likely. At first I thought it was Schwarber, but man .950 is a high high bar, he'd have to hit like .285 with best ever power. Chatwood could happen especially with Hickey, maybe I think that's less likely because unless someone else tanks you're then in ...

Re: Sports Media Thread

Mannnnnnn, between Sahadev and Mooney, the Athletic's Cubs coverage is in a great great place. Worth the price alone (not to mention the Bears content too...Bulls coverage seems MEH).

And I was a big anti-Athletic guy

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

At some point the Cubs' model of buying a rotation rather than developing one, and having a so-so bullpen will catch up to them. how is this even a thought a person has? and why does it seem like 95% of baseball fans online think that there's something inherently better about players who were draft...
