  1. Sticky: Poll: Chicago Cubs at St. Louis Hackers (6/26 - 6/28)

    That's sort of a self-fulfilling prophesy, isn't it? Teams who have won a lot of games are likely to have "gotten it done" in those games. If they hadn't, they wouldn't have won all those games. That...
  2. Sticky: Poll: Oh, I know. I'm using it in response to the...

    Oh, I know. I'm using it in response to the narrative that "clutch" has been the difference between the Cardinals and Cubs to this point in the season.
  3. Sticky: Poll: Fangraphs measures clutch, and by their metric...

    Fangraphs measures clutch, and by their metric the Cubs are good for the 7th most clutch team in baseball.

    Turner's injury is a real bummer. He's intriguing, but I don't know when he'll be able to get a shot here now since I can't see us going into next season with a rotation spot unspoken for.

    I hate Xavier Scruggs already. Did this guy win a roster spot in a St Louis radio contest?

    What's the deal with LaStella, anyway? Did he tear his abdomen in half or something?
  7. Sticky: Poll: I don't know how loudly I can keep beating this...

    I don't know how loudly I can keep beating this drum, but the takeaway from these games for me had nothing to do with the Cubs and everything to do with sheer exasperation that the Cardinals can...
  8. Sticky: Poll: Especially when you KNOW you have a waiver wire...

    Especially when you KNOW you have a waiver wire guy starting the next day and will very likely need the bullpen heavily.
  9. Sticky: Poll: I keep mentioning this, but the Cardinals staff...

    I keep mentioning this, but the Cardinals staff leads the majors in LOB%. Pair that with the lowest HR/FB and their absurd team ERA is a full run lower than both their SIERA and xFIP.

    These two...
  10. Sticky: Poll: Grichuk, Scruggs, Bourjos... How is this team...

    Grichuk, Scruggs, Bourjos...

    How is this team 20+ games over .500?
  11. Sticky: Poll: We really needed to win yesterday, huh?

    We really needed to win yesterday, huh?
  12. Sticky: Poll: This was absolute vintage Cardinals. They're...

    This was absolute vintage Cardinals. They're quite literally riding a sky high team LOB% to the success they're having. That's their entire formula. Get outhit 4-to-1 and win anyway because their...
  13. Sticky: Poll: Holy hell, could this game possibly be more...

    Holy hell, could this game possibly be more emblematic of the Cardinals season? Allow 10 hits but only 2 runs and then tie it up on a HR by some kid I can only assume is dying of cancer and asked...
  14. Yeah, I don't get that distinction at all....

    Yeah, I don't get that distinction at all. Capping your bid is what it is. Whether you lay it on the table right from the start or another team bids you up until you reach your cap and bow out,...
  15. Implicit in this argument is an understanding...

    Implicit in this argument is an understanding that they could not have signed Cano *and* Ellsbury et al. They had to choose between the two options.
  16. And other teams do what, exactly? Sign free...

    And other teams do what, exactly? Sign free agents by NOT having the highest bid?

    "The Yankees have signed some free agents. When they did, they were the highest bidder. Therefore, the Yankees...

    It's not an updated ranking. They just remove guys who lose prospect status and slide everyone behind him up a slot.

    Except maybe on the DL a year after you give up the farm for him.

    I think Schwarber would be tricky to trade even if you wanted to. The Cubs will continue valuing him as a catcher, but you can bet any trade partner would dispute that and try to lower his value as a...

    "Untouchable" is overstating it, but I wouldn't think of trading him at this point. With the way he's creeping up lists, he could be one of the top prospects in the game by this time next year....

    I think he meant that a 4th/5th starter is something you add to help get into the playoffs, but they're not likely to play a big part in the postseason itself.

    His lines in the minors were comical thanks to high BABIP. He was also swatting home runs every few plate appearances. If you'd told me before the season that absurd BABIP would be the primary...

    I wasn't expecting a lack of power and a line that looks merely ok even with a .400 BABIP.
