Ben Zobrist has a higher career fWAR than Molina. By several points

I don't understand how anyone can get upset about the HOF anymore.

Since they started putting relievers and Jack Morris in the hall is a joke.

Anything voted on by sportswriters is meaningless to me anyway. However, I do love watching BFIB heads explode when you even question if Molina is the GOAT.

Can confirm. I can't seem to find it, but I remember Fowler tweeting about how much trouble he was having finding a house/apartment shortly after signing.

Yep. As I recall, he wanted blackout shades pre-installed.

You know he's just probably just renting a place close to work. He ain't putting down roots in that town I'm sure of it.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

DeJong to the DL with a broken left hand after getting hit by a pitch last night. He’s the only SS on their 40-man so I guess the Gyorko SS experiment will be back.

Cubs could dangle Mike Freeman. Probably end up an All-Star in St. Louis.

Garcia can play SS too, although I bet they'll be awfully tempted to try Gyorko considering they didn't have enough infield spots to go around before with Carpenter, Gyorko, Martinez, and Wong.

It seems like the All-Star Break is a good starting point for DeJong's return.



Carpenter/Gyorko/Wong/Martinez would have to be the worst defensive infield in baseball.

Seriously. Could be historically bad.

They should go get Machado like now, which I’m kinda fine with them depleting their system even further to do it since I don’t see him signing there.
