    I will continue to fight tooth and nail on this draft thing because it's the single laziest narrative Cubs fans have over the last 10 years. Baseball fans have proven time and time again they have...

    Yeah, they haven't been "exposed" in September. You're moving the goalposts by saying "high fastballs". Your post was about September, that somehow in September they get exposed. So do they get...

    I do not mean this rudely, but I have to start this post from this position: you don't understand wRC+. It's far from useless; it's easily the best silver-bullet quick be-all rating for offense. So...

    Deep sleeper SP prospect time; keep an eye out on Max Bain. He's not going to jump on any top-30 lists, as he was signed by the Cubs as an MiLB free agent; he was undrafted. He went to Northwood...

    You know way too well than to pretend three games, or 27 innings is in any way, shape, or form, a meaningful or worthwhile samplesize of data to present, Wolf. I'm not going to engage in a...

    What have they done? Are you serious?
    Rizzo - 6th in fWAR at 1st
    Contreras - 3rd in fWAR at C with improving framing numbers
    Bryant's been hurt 2 of the 3 years, but in the year he wasn't hurt...

    You do realize they have like, full careers you could use to figure out what these players are, right? Like literally thousands of PAs.

    They don't need 10 more games to impress you. You either...

    I've been riding the Bachman train for about a month. Sadly, much like Frelick my picker was too good, and he's ranked, I think, 12th on Laws list.

    Options are years. The Cubs burned nothing. Once players hit certain ages they lose an option year regardless. Alzoloay will burn a year this year no matter what. In an option year they can move...

    A good example of what I'm talking about is Christopher Morel. He's been an IFA signing, and a guy who's been on prospect radars since 2017. He had to be picked on the 40 man because he was Rule V...

    I mean, they're MLB prospects. If guys are 18 or 19, three years would make them be 21 now. That's still super young for prospects. 21 year olds are young for AA. Now add in missing a full year...

    I don't think that's a correct statement. The Cubs minor league system hasn't taken the field for 1.5 years in most cases. Most of the talent the Cubs have had has been in the low minors, and there...

    Already happened this year. You can see it resulted in the stats. League wOBA is down from .320 to .312. HR/FB% down from 14.8% to 13.5%. BABIP is down 10% too. There has also been a .3 spike in...

    If the Cubs trade Bryant, Baez, Rizzo...etc they're not going to care what warm body takes their place. Matt Duffy will be a fine replacement for a Cubs team trading Bryant because that's the white...

    It's very early. The Cubs as a team have an wRC+ similar to Tony Wolter's career (the worst hitter in the league, literally) so far. It'd be the worst wRC+ of any team in history by leaps and...

    Burnes straight up is likely a top 5 SP in baseball right now. Hes disgustingly good.

    Options are years. His option would be expiring at the end of this season anyways. So they might as well use it. He will lose it either way.

    They can bring him up as many times as they choose....

    The DH rule is dumb. The end goal of the DH rule should be to put your best talents, in the best positions, and to make the game more interesting as a whole. That rule takes guys like Nelson Cruz...

    I don't think that's an overreaction. It sucks right now. I think it'll get better; there's no way they're THIS bad offensively. But it still sucks now.

    In another year maybe. But there's a reason multi-year contracts were not being moved and it's because of the expansion draft.
