Re: Schwarber carted off field

I wonder if this have any longer term impact on whether Schwarber is used more as a Catcher to try to avoid this type of scenario in the future. Yes, you can call it a freak injury, but it isn't the first time he has put himself in an awkward position going after a ball in the outfield. i think if ...

why would that be your assumption over soler just being our primary LF?

Re: Schwarber carted off field

what's the history on aggressive recovery times for torn knee ligaments on baseball players? i'd imagine it's not as bad as football or basketball but still probably more than 6 months?

Re: Schwarber carted off field

It's too bad Almora isn't at least at a point where he could be a passable MLB hitter. We could go straight up silly good OF defense right now if he could, with Fowler and Heyward in the corners.

Re: Schwarber carted off field

If you had to rank the Cubs by their offensive ceilings (taking into account someone at 28 is probably at their ceiling, while someone who is 23 has the potential to have a higher ceiling) how would you rank the Cubs hitters currently? I'd have to consider Schwarber around 2nd or 3rd, but the risk/...

Re: Schwarber carted off field

especially since schwarber was probably like our 5th best regular and, while the replacements aren't great (or him), he's not being replaced by like jason dubois or bobby scales or something either. I'm lower on him than most, but I think you could make a case for 8th. He is definitely behind Rizzo...

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Schwarber will be day-to-day and return on Wednesday April 13th, next game after opening day. At this point I think a severe sprain and out for a month is probably the best case scenario. i think you guys are nuts. best case scenario is he sees the fi...
