    I'm for a lot of the pace of play rules but totally against anything that affects how the game is actually played because of things like this.

    Different middle name. It's not completely uncommon in Latin American families.

    How in the world does anyone in that front office still have a job there?

    I think the question is what would a 26 year-old superstar get and then ask how much you'd be willing to go over that. I don't think a Harper or Bryant-like prospect would get as much as a star 26...

    I'm with you on this. If he's getting into superstar+ money, even at his age, then this is getting a little silly. Can you get a player as good as he is for the kind of money he might command? Maybe...

    I did not realize the Cubs acquired the Adron Collider and this is exciting news to me.

    When you're looking at pitchers, you're looking for something that could make them special and Johnson certainly fits that mold in terms of stuff and his slider. He obviously needs to get his control...

    No, I'm just saying I like how BP has them ordered as opposed to other places.

    I'm totally ok with them not trying to do everything in one off-season. Not every player in the top players at their position every off-season is a guy you want to give a lot of money to and so I'm...

    I kind of feel like Lindor is just going to be another Elvis Andrus. That's a good player but he's not going to win a batting title and he's not going to hit for any power. I realize I'm far from an...

    Just to explain that -
    Fangraphs uses FIP in their pitcher WAR equation, which Jackson still does fairly well in. The problem is he gets hit hard which FIP doesn't account for. BBRef uses ERA for...

    It's not just that he hasn't played well, it's also that the Cubs' system has gotten better. I think if he had just continued to do what he was doing, we wouldn't be so fascinated with him....

    He grew up on the north side of LA, actually. But that's a lot closer to San Diego than Chicago. And the weather is a hell of a lot better.

    The Cubs have shown they are very good at finding solid starting pitching and this is a very strong rotation considering there's no Wainwright or Kershaw. There's no reason to walk away from a...

    The coverage is pretty extensive for every team. What you see here are the more popular articles but Cubs players come up all the time in smaller articles. When you subscribe, you also get a digest...

    Or have La Stella try his hand at 2nd and move Baez to left field and keep the outfield platoon. I totally agree that Denorfia, if he has a mild rebound season, is the better plan. His batting...

    Andrew McCutchen has alluded to the fact that he was happy for the security and to play for the Pirates and that factored into signing the extension that he agreed to with the Pirates. His contract...

    It's a toss-up for me. La Stella is a below average runner and defender (at second base) but at least he can work a count and hit some singles. Drew is the better defender by far and possibly a...

    Zobrist played 888 innings last season at 2nd base and short stop, his 2 primary positions at this point. I just don't see a lot of value in trading for 1 year of a player whose primary positions are...

    I like picking up the Adron Collider as a depth guy. It's possible he's just never had enough time at the MLB level to make any sort of adjustment.

    When don't we?

    I'm all for giving away any numbers that aren't retired. A lot of the guys who have worn 8 have made me cringe but they've earned the right to wear whatever number the team will let...

    Fixing their farm system is said to be one of the top priorities of John Hart. This would certainly do a little to help them.

    They can use a stopgap at 2nd without rushing Peraza. Under Wren,...

    The Nats do have one of the best pitching prospects in baseball in Giolito. But he is still a ways off.
