Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

I think the best part of this is that 2015 is the coolest year any of us have ever experienced and it's only the beginning and we've significantly improved it in the offseason. like i wouldn't be all that shocked if the next 4 years overshadow all other seasons we've seen prior to 2015. I'd go with...

Re: 2016 Hall of Fame

Just make it a Yes/No ballot with no limits and all ballots public for public shaming and mockery. I like this idea. My fix is (I know it absolutely would never happen) there's still the voting aspect for those who fall short of the objective/measurable criteria but a player automatically gets in i...

Re: AZL Fall League Thread

His ceiling really comes down to how much power you think he develops. Obviously, there are moments where the idea of average pop seems almost comical for him ... but he did the 15th most doubles out of qualified carolina league players). If he can push that into average power, that's a very intrig...

He has been paid almost $120 million in that time.

Does that seem a little low? - his 2010 and 2011 were decent enough, no? Does it accrue -'ve values?

Re: Have the Cubs produced more Cubs position players in 2014-15 than in previous 30 years?

Billy Hatcher comes to mind as a Cubs farmhand that had a decent career elsewhere. Before I knew anything about stats, I always wished the Cubs had kept Hatcher. I bring this up because the issue is not that the Cubs didn't produce any decent position players so much as they never got a lot of valu...

Anybody know anything about Taylor Davis? Was clicking on random players in the minor league boxes and after recovering from his outstanding bio pic noticed he was a 49th round pic in 2008. At 25 in AAA I'm guessing he has already over achieved. It doesn't look like he's ever been a starter - does h...

Re: 8/25 Cubs (Arrieta) @ Giants (Cain), 9:15, WGN

Odd stat that caught my attention Dexter Fowler has walked between 65 and 68 times every year since 2008 except for 2010. Relatively narrow range of at bats - swing of about 65 - so makes a little sense but still kind of neat. Presumably that will change soon. (currently at 66)
