No doubt rocket home run off Zambrano.. It sounded like a gun shot. (It may have been first ML at bat)

Re: 2015 Holiday Gift Wish List

My family members are huge gift givers, and every year I find it increasingly difficult to come up with things to ask for. (Generally, I just buy the stuff I want that I can afford at this point in my life.) So I figured I'd see what you folks are asking for, hoping it would inspire me. So what's o...

Re: Cubs in Winter Leagues

2 HR and 6 RBI for Villanueva today. In 51 games, he's got 9 HR, 30 RBI, to go with 30 walks and only 21 K's. He's slashing a very nice .331/.436/525. He's out of options unfortunately, but MAYBE he's put himself into position to be a 2nd/3rd piece that nets us a McGee, without giving up Javy? I br...

Re: Baez to CF

There are questions about both Heyward and Schwarber against lefties. Javy could have plenty of playing time both giving guys regular rest as well as picking up extra starts against lefties. It doesn't even matter much how well he fields in the OF, because both Bryant and Zobrist could go out there ...

Re: Baez to CF

Milwaukee looks really, really bad at 3B in 2016. If we did end up making a move for Lucroy, I could definitely see us pushing Villanueva as part of the compensation.

Re: Baez to CF

a bit off topic: Villanueva's line continues to be super sexy isn't there a logjam at 3B between AA and AAA? I'd love for him to be a cheap, productive backup next year for the cubs. or traded for good value, of course, if some team views him as a candidate for a starting 3B job. Also on that page ...

Also, the first opt out lines up with the year Bryce Harper is a free agent.

The second lines up with Trout.

Re: Baez to CF

Thank goodness for sample size. Well, if you're talking Javy, then he's been killed by babip; everything else in his line is fine. 19 PA: 3/3 BB/K ratio; 16% BB & K rate; he's hit a home run on 1 in 13 balls in play The only issue is that he's got one single on the other 12 balls in play, for a...

Definitely. I want to see it all come together now.

And wait, did Tim nail the 8/$184M?

I did, but I can't take any credit. I just used the Fangraphs crowdsourced contract estimates.

But seriously, maybe Theo can volunteer to mediate between the US and Cuba and make their national team part of our farm system as part of the deal.

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

With Heyward and Zobrist at 1 & 2 in the order, I'm going to take a wild guess and say that Rizzo and Bryant will drive in a few more than 100 runs this year.

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

Another fun note (according to fangraphs)...

Kris Bryant was #4 in Baserunning Runs in 2015. Jason Heyward was #5.

Addison Russell was #4 in Defensive Runs Saved. Jason Heyward was #6.
