  1. Sticky: I'd say the rotation is still a real worry....

    I'd say the rotation is still a real worry. Hendricks/Darvish are great, and it'll be nice when Q is back, but 36 year old Lester, Chatwood (despite his really insane first 3 starts), Mills still...
  2. GDT: You just said it yourself, there's not adequate...

    You just said it yourself, there's not adequate sample size to make judgments, so why are we making judgments about Kipnis' incredibly small sample size performance? Why are we doing it with Nico? I...
  3. GDT: I don't really care about Kipnis' xwOBA through...

    I don't really care about Kipnis' xwOBA through less than 30 PAs. I would completely disagree he's earned anything at this point. I hope the Cubs don't either. I can sort of understand not trusting...
  4. GDT: Yep. Kipnis playing isn't even the Cubs just...

    Yep. Kipnis playing isn't even the Cubs just "playing the hot hand" I think it means they don't think that Nico/Bote will outperform Kipnis this year, which is pretty upsetting, whether they're right...
  5. GDT: Or you can count your blessings while they last...

    Or you can count your blessings while they last and just go with the option that should give you the best chance to win on any given day. Which is assuredly not Kipnis.

    Honestly, not sure what...
  6. GDT: Much like Mills as the 5th starter is a counting...

    Much like Mills as the 5th starter is a counting of blessings, so should we with Kipnis. His 26 awesome PAs this year don't erase this significance of his last 1500.

    The Cubs should use Bote and...
  7. GDT: Also happy birthday Doogolas. It's not your...

    Also happy birthday Doogolas. It's not your birthday, but Kyle Hendricks is pitching a great game.
  8. GDT: I wouldn't be opposed to that system.

    I wouldn't be opposed to that system.
  9. GDT: That's why feelings are less powerful than data.

    That's why feelings are less powerful than data.
  10. GDT: To some extent, I think interaction with the...

    To some extent, I think interaction with the umpires should be discouraged. They make mistakes. A player can have a gut reaction or express frustration, but I don't think they should just be allowed...
  11. GDT: Meh. I think umps need thicker skin. I also don't...

    Meh. I think umps need thicker skin. I also don't think it matters the player's reputation. If a guy is in your face or arguing an extended period of time, sure toss him. Looking at it from an...
  12. GDT: No way Phegley isn't coming in.

    No way Phegley isn't coming in.
  13. GDT: I'm gonna defend Willy here. Not only did it not...

    I'm gonna defend Willy here. Not only did it not look like a swing on the replay, but even if it had, I'd say that toss was pretty undeserved. He said a few words, and slammed his bat out of...
  14. GDT: No doubt, just saying I imagine if you're an...

    No doubt, just saying I imagine if you're an elite runner, you can probably compensate for a lot. At least to be better than Ian Happ and probably as good as Almora in CF. 93rd percentile seemed high...
  15. GDT: Also Victor Caratini runs slower than Rizzo, so I...

    Also Victor Caratini runs slower than Rizzo, so I guess people should ridicule him endlessly too anytime he's on the bases.
  16. GDT: If Nico is 93rd I have no idea why he's not in...

    If Nico is 93rd I have no idea why he's not in CF. It's not what I'm getting though, last year, he was 89th out of 568, which would put him around 84.5.

    Still pretty darn fast and would think it'd...
  17. GDT: Nah, at least two that I remember were swinging,...

    Nah, at least two that I remember were swinging, one at a changeup, one at the curve. But even if they weren't, the cutters on the outside corner were always a big part of his K-game. His command has...
  18. GDT: He's been fine. Moreso lots of weak contact than...

    He's been fine. Moreso lots of weak contact than missing lots of bats. The Indians don't have a very good lineup or I think he'd probably be getting hit harder.
  19. GDT: Plutko hasn't been a starter this year and isn't...

    Plutko hasn't been a starter this year and isn't stretched out, that's why he was pulled.
  20. GDT: I don't think Lester is a bad pitcher right now,...

    I don't think Lester is a bad pitcher right now, he's likely at least a capable backend starter, but it's definitely a case of results being better than his talent so far this year.

    Just a few...
  21. GDT: Lester with that 100% strand rate lolol

    1908 already covered everything much more vastly and eloquently than I ever could, but in regards to the bolded, give me a break. You consistently write up self-congratulatory, condescending (not to...

    Hey everyone, not sure if there are any OOTPers here, but I've gathered 8 other long-time PSDers on Discord in hopes of starting a new online OOTP (Out of the Park baseball) league. Hit me up if...

    Don't even care about the home run. Captain Spin Rate looks great this year.

    Might be making too much of one game, but if the hook on Almora was this short, what was the point in tendering him a contract anyway? Only thing I can think is that pre-COVID the plan was for...
