    Sticky: Cubs with 9th Pick in 2015 Draft

    He posted a pick from the recovery room.

    If McDaniel is right that the draft is weak at the top of the draft then he would be worth the ninth pick. The only time for me it wouldn't be worth it...

    Most of the defensive questions were after he was drafted. By 2013 those questions were already disappearing. He's average at SS and he'll be really good at 2B.

    I have doubts about Bryant sticking at third, but I wouldn't call Baez a poor defender at SS. He moved off SS because the Cubs have a young pretty good SS already. Baez isn't an elite defender, but...

    They really like Schwarber's make up as a person in addition to his offensive profile. There is more to that pick then just a big guy with good plate discipline.

    I have no clue who they will take, except that it will be the player they like best at #9. Schwarber wasn't just his offensive profile, they also liked his make up a lot.

    I think the Cubs will go with who ever they feel is the best player, regardless of if the hit or pitch.

    I doubt they will be looking to find either Schwarber 2.0.

    Since that report came from the Phillies about the Yanks a decent guess is that it is trying to pressure the Red Sox into upping their bid.

    Sticky: 2015 Free Agent & Trade Ideas Thread 2.0

    BP is the only one that uses pitches counts, they wrote a nice paper explaining why they do it that way. The numbers they come up with are not that much different than other pitch framing systems. ...

    I'm not sure how one adds a fraction of a strike. Run expectancy is affected by the count. If a strike is framed on an count with 2 that is more valuable compared to a strike being framed on 0-0...

    They don't. They do adjust by the count. There isn't any reason the Cubs can't develop their own internal pitch framing metrics that does.

    Impossible to predict when Cubans are going to defect.

    I just hope that if the Cubs are going to be locked out of big ticket guys for 2 years they spend close to Yankee money on it.

    That's ok. I'm wishing for a sports hernia. Shutting him down for 2 months would take a nice chunk out of his season.
