I saw it on reddit and I think it's Rogers giving a personal opinion of 50-50 not any source indicating that

That was my first reaction as well.

I wouldn't be surprised if they have both teams wear white again, although I don't know if they consider the Cubs' pinstripes 'worthy' of that as they are doing with the Yankees this year.

Great stuff. The only thing that concerns me about Rizzo is that he notoriously can get into megaslumps. What will the Cubs offense look like if/when that happens this year? Maybe it won’t

Rizzo since I dropped him on 4/21 in the HR Derby (150 PAs):

.357/.440/.729/.476 wOBA with 13 HRs and a 12% K rate

Paul Goldschnidt has a .406 SLG and .102 IsoSLG since

You are all welcome

This year the role of Anthony Rizzo: Megaslumper will be played by Kris Bryant.

Is there nothing to do about this trash offense? It’s unacceptably bad.

6th in the majors in wRC, 4th in wOBA, 3rd in OBP. I can't even imagine the outrage among the other 83% of the league that has been worse than us this year.

It is different, but in a good way. That FIP would be a career best, xFIP second only to his 36 IP in 2016. Yeah there aren't as many GB or K's, but the walks vanishing entirely more than makes up for it, plus HR rate back to career norms.

I think those are fine numbers for what is now our 4th to 6th best relief pitcher. It’s very encouraging.
