    They aren't. To add, Puig is so much better a hitter than Castro. Puig's wRC+ is 147 compared to Castro's 115. A 22% difference. And Puig is probably going to slug more than he did in 2014, going...

    Start Heyward trade discussions with Mendy and Edwards. Obviously not enough but it gets it going. I do love the idea of trading for Heyward. He's still only 25. I am starting to make myself drool.

    There's whispers of him going back to SD. He might get one of those President roles or something. An executive role.

    Yeah someone was speculating on Twitter the same thing. Let's hope they keep it at 3 games a piece next year. Remember 2008, when the Cubs and Sox were both really good? Those series had so much hype...

    Almora's contact rate is 87%, league average for AA is 83%. I don't know if it's possible to find it for people his age.

    The thing is, we know he makes fantastic contact. It's just the complete...

    If Baez has a .300 BABIP, makes contact 65% of the time(a strikeout rate around 30%), hits 30 home runs in 600 PA, walks 6% of the time, and has a .240 ISO (for reference, he had .261, .344, and .250...

    I still can't believe Addison Russell is in this system. This has gotta be one of my favorite transactions of all time. The system was great and something to be proud of before he arrived. Adding...

    I was surprised he turned down the Padres GM interview. And then like four other people turned it now. I've never seen that before. It must be known it's toxic.

    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...

    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...

    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,...

    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...

    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...
