Kyle Schwarber, Walksmith

Postby CubInOK » Thu May 23, 2019 3:07 pm

I’d love to see a deep dive into these developments. Schwarber has had a ton of long PAs lately, so it’s no surprise that his OBP is starting to inflate. It’s really nice to see him on base for Bryant-Rizzo-Baez-Contreras dongs.

He's been bounced around the order a lot. I think leadoff suits him well and hope he can keep it up.

The added bonus of it infuriating the meatballs is a plus, too.

Yeah Schwarbs has been really good since they moved him to lead off. Just keep him there. Everything after 4th in the order is a wasteland anyway

But 1-5 is ideally some combo of Schwarber, Bryant, Rizzo, Baez and Contreras....

Ah yeah, i miscounted - mostly because of late 1 of those 5 has been out with an injury or a day off

It's not unreasonable to have a team with 5 good hitters and everyone else sucking (many, many good and great teams do), but its still painful to see Descalso swing feebly with a funko bat
