    Strumpf seems to have added weight and strength. He hit some impressive opposite field doubles. He wasn't filled out and struggled with that previously. It's good to see.

    Eric Sogard has been bad almost every year of his career. The Chicago Cubs picked Sogard because he was the closest thing to "free". If the argument is "the Cubs should have versatile and good...

    This is exactly what a DFA is. The Cubs waive him off the 40 man. It's then up to him whether he would accept a AAA slot. If he says no (a formality), he is then released. The Cubs, may have,...

    But just putting the ball in play doesn't do anything. The Cubs lineup has lacked, perhaps, guys who make more contact. They, however, don't lack players with a wRC+ in the 70's and the worst...

    He's an extreme riser recently. I've only recently seen his name start popping up on my twitter feed, so I'm not super deep on him. From what I do know, he's added a lot of velo and spin this year....

    Sogard has a 68 wRC+. Hes been awful. He's been so bad that even though he has a .267 wOBA his expected wOBA is in the .230 range.

    Duffy has been shockingly competent. I doubt it'll continue,...

    How does adding Bryant make them "Old and bad"? He's got the 2nd best wRC+ in the NL. Sounds like he'd make them significantly better. There's almost no difference in picking, like 6th and 11th in...

    So, let's start with the first thing that's wrong with the post; those aren't close to being accurate strikeout percentages. Not in the ballpark. I have no idea where these numbers are coming from....

    That's simply asinine. Kris Bryant is a far, far better hitter than Nico Hoerner. You have no idea what you're talking about.

    First off, Hoerner doesn't hold a candle to Bryant. Even right...

    Since entering the league he's got the 3rd most fWAR in all of baseball. He's finished top-10 in fWAR three times prior. It isn't like this is some new thing for him.

    The Cubs starting the literal worst hitter in the MLB over the last 4 years will fix their offense.

    If you're in the middle of a window, you probably already have a team. I prefer to take risks when it becomes a luxury; take the risk when you can afford to lose the pick. Picking late 1st round,...

    Not a shock here. Arrieta has had a bottom 10 xFIP this year. I'm not surprised with this outcome. He's been teetering on the edge all year.
