    Podcasts? We recorded one tonight. Hoping to record more once the season starts. I wrote up a season preview ebook type thing with a few CR guys. Site re-design is happening too. And content shifts...

    I think Candelario and Almora are going to kill it.

    So Heyward has been pulling the ball a hell of a lot more this Spring Training. Sure, it probably doesn't predict much, but a trend to watch.

    Maddon described Cahill has a Zobrist-like pitcher. I don't think that necessarily means he's the next in line to take over Hammel, but the one guy who's most capable of switching back and forth...

    I was at the game yesterday. It was weird. Bum screams like Peavy every now and then, like almost mid pitch. He screamed some profantiy after the 2nd. When he struck out Heyward, I don't know if you...

    Hammel was really impressive during his last outing. He was sitting 83-84mph with his slider, which is a very good sign because when his slider flattened last, the velo also went up.

    Damnit, Ramirez. Agreed that he shouldn't make the team, but some fancy option maneuvering with others might give him a shot?

    I'm not surprised that the Cubs cut Brothers, but I am surprised at how quickly they did it. It's been less than a month since he reported. I imagine the coaches just didn't like his approach and...

    Poll: The only areas that interest me during ST are...

    The only areas that interest me during ST are pitcher velocity and obvious player mechanical adjustments. It was good to see Arrieta sitting at 95-96mph last start out.

    Arrieta is going to be a paid man. Boras is going to kill us.

    I just want to see some damn velocity readings on Neil in the next few games. Heard he was sitting 91-92, but that was his first appearance.

    I much rather prefer Lester's contract than Scherzer's because I think there are less concerns about Lester's durability. Lefties tend to suffer the least when velocity goes down. Plus, Scherzer,...

    It's not so much the velocity as it is the fact that Wood doesn't have that one really good whiff pitch. He's still a formidable reliever, and I am extremely happy that he turned it around in the...

    Sprinkle some pixie dust on Rex Brothers, and that fixes the problem. Seriously though, the slider is potent. He needs lots of work, specifically release consistently, control, etc., but the slider...

    I can see that happening. Though, I think Richards and Brooks could be one inning guys, particularly Brooks because he could gain a few ticks on the 4seamer and then capitalize on his already good...

    I think the financial implications Ricketts was under will never be fully understood by us fans. We just don't know what was going on. So, in theory, though it made sense for the Cubs to "spend" in...

    All these minor league deals.

    I'm most excited about the way the Cubs acquired starting pitching depth this off season. Obviously, saturating the team with the positional talent was monumental,...

    It's a one year, 13M deal. The only way Dexter comes back next year is if his left leg falls off and is stapled back together.
  21. I'm most impressed with his Cubs fashion. The...

    I'm most impressed with his Cubs fashion. The jackets he has are phenomenal. He subtly places Cubs logos on his apparel, so it's not too over-the-top like most MLB gear. That's his best attribute.

    I wish we had Kyle Gibson. I hear ya.

    This team, guys. Wow. Theo, you son of a gun.

    I don't know of anyone who is too high on him.

    Brooks is the type of pitcher the Cubs seem to always take a shot on. There is a parallel among all these low-level pickups: they all have one...

    Rizzo is the oddest baseball player I've ever liked. In 2014, he essentially had Joey Votto's discipline in the first half, only to turn into Adam Jones the second half. And then he did the same...

    Pretty surprised that Dex's market fell that much. The O's are getting a killer deal. Really, anyone who wanted a centerfielder would've got a quality deal if they signed Fowler.
