  1. Sticky: Because Baez, Castro, and Russell are probably...

    Because Baez, Castro, and Russell are probably all better defensive third basemen than Bryant. We have a guarantee that Castro and Baez will be in the 2015 infield, and Russell is extremely close to...
  2. Sticky: Even if Bryant moves to the OF, Russell coming up...

    Even if Bryant moves to the OF, Russell coming up forces shuffling and one of he, Castro, or Baez will have to play 3B. 3B just isn't a priority, unless you also plan on trading a non-Alcantara...
  3. Sticky: Baez's main problem can be outlined pretty easily...

    Baez's main problem can be outlined pretty easily with his plate discipline numbers. He A) swinging at too many pitches out of the zone and B) not making enough contact when he swings at pitches out...

    Where does this "Baez doesn't walk" thing come from? We have three years of data that says the opposite. He walks about average or a tick below, but not much below. Sure he doesn't walk like crazy,...

    Soler is on pace for 32 WAR over 162 games. This rate will definitely hold.

    Dude, I don't understand how you're not getting it. Roddy isn't making the argument here for Schwarber having an .800 OPS floor. He's just pointing out you're bending plate appearances to further...

    Well 500 PA's on August 27th and 500 PA's on September 27th are pretty different. He's just pointing out that if you use Qualified hitters instead and make it more of a rate, more players hit that...

    Because it gets a little tiring saying "because he's 21 years old with 40 games played in high A ball and the bust rate for those prospects is still pretty huge" in every post that is disagreeing...

    Fun fact: by wOBA differentials the Cubs are better than the first place Royals. The Cubs are the biggest underachiever due to sequencing in the league and the Royals are biggest overachiever.

    It's pretty amusing to me that even before Baez "adjusts" he's playing at an above replacement level rate. That's wonderful. Strikeouts under 40%, walks are starting to come, and the power has been...

    I kinda want to really try to land Lester and Shields. The Cubs can theoretically sign both of them, a bench bat or something, and still come in under $100 million. Lester, Shields, Arrieta,...

    If any of you watch MMA, you can notice that even after the most brutal of knockouts, most guys are conscious less than a minute later. 10 minutes is scary ****.

    It isn't just the fact that he played for the FO. There's been a lot of smoke for some reason. Like his unnamed teammates saying he'd sign here, and Lester himself saying it'd be cool to play for the...

    Jesus, Timbr, you're either delusional or have pretty terrible reading comprehension. It can also be a combination of the two.

    According to a Muskat article, today. No word on what his role will be or what the corresponding roster move will be, but that should be announced a few hours before game time.

    Zobrist is 33 years old and a FA after 2015. So you either trade for his 34 year old season and then pay money for his 35+ seasons, or you're trading prospects for a one year rental.

    Edwin would be valuable to a team if they had him for something like 2/$8M. Cubs simply gotta eat the remaining $14M. The roster spot he takes up is simply too valuable. The Cubs have a ton of...
