    It's just a thought outside of the box. I'm not saying that what they reported isn't true. But honestly, I believe little to nothing on what the media wants us to hear. We only know what they want...

    This may be a little out of left field, but here it goes. Not only has Rahm denied the Cubs any funding on at least four separate occasions, but he publicly bragged about saying "no." I have a...

    Listening to his interview, it appears that lowering his hands will cut down on the waggle. Also, I understand his leg kick is virtually non existent now.

    Come on Dave, you're way smarter than that. Read my post again. It's directed at swinging and missing at fastballs. The swinging at pitches out of the strike have nothing to do with starting his...

    Correct. As far as striking out on fastballs, his self admitted problem is starting his swing too late. He said they are currently working on that.

    His striking out on everything else? Well he...

    I think it's the exact opposite. During the off season, while sitting idle, is when he gets tempted and has his slip ups. The last thing a guy like him needs is free time. He's better off playing...

    I just don't see high BA at all. No matter what he does. Too much swing and miss. A career .278 BA against minor league pitching, with no plate discipline does not translate to a good BA.

    Now,...

    This is exactly what you said: "Maybe I'm alone, but I think most Cubs fans would be happy if he's a starter."

    That clearly means your expectations are just that. And you'd be happy if he was...

    Chris Sale injured

    Chris Sale suffered an avulsion fracture on his right foot in an accident at his home yesterday. He is expected to be sidelined 3 weeks.

    Ok, I'm gonna ask you to do me a favor. Post any scouting report of a "real scout" that says that he projects to be nothing more than a starter. I will never discuss the Baez expectations again if...

    It actually says, "Based on the above assessments, Baez projects to be an above average to potential all-star caliber player at the next level, although his questionable plate discipline and...

    About a year and a half ago is scouting report had him "to be an above average to potential all-star caliber player at the next level." That's in the 4-5 range. It's ok to expect him to be a 2-2.5....

    Myself? With where he was drafted, his scouting report, his insane abilities for a middle infielder, his hype and exceptions, I would be disappointed if he wasn't at least a 4 year in and year out. ...

    Bryce Harper is an example of playing so hard that he has missed time every year in the majors due to injury. Doe he hustle? Yes! Does he play too hard? Yes. And yes, a player can play too hard....

    Everybody wants their players to hustle. That's common sense. But unless a player has extreme speed,(Campana) I think "sprinting" down to first on a routine play, may be a little over the top. A...

    I honestly don't know the exact time frame. I also don't know were to find minor league splits to check month by month.

    In A ball, he had a total of 235 PA's
    In A+, he had a total of 337 PA's...

    There's no question that he has always adjusted to a slow start at every minor league level.

    Can't we all just agree that he has failed to adjust to the bigs in the same time span that he always...

    You're probably right. But just about anybody is for sale for the right price.

    And I'm not saying that any or all of these guy are on the market. It's names for a discussion.

    I know this list is very long, but here's a list of pitchers that are either young and under control, have team friendly contracts, or getting close or in their walk season. I know that some would...

    The pace of the game and the length of the game don't have to be synonymous.

    The pace now is agonizing......not the length. The reason for long games is the problem. Not the fact that they are...

    Since we are not getting an extremely high pick this year, and most of the top 10 draft prospects are pitchers, is this the year we break the trend of drafting a hitter?

    The fines are pretty funny. Real simple.......if he's out of the box when the pitcher has the ball, he will pitch it.
