    Same. The Triple Crown is cute, but RBI do little for me as a stat, and I don't take it into account for who I'd vote for to begin with. Voters probably will (but voters routinely factor in things...

    It's close. Vlad has been the better hitter. Ohtani doesn't play defense. However, he pitches. So fWAR wise they're so close: 4 to 3.7 (2.5 offensive, 1.2 pitching). But I have to say Ohtani...

    Going all in on a rebuild isn't necessarily a good thing. I don't think the Cubs needed a rebuild, and agreed they cheaped out fully. All of that is in agreement. But rebuilding completely can...

    Yeah I'd love for the Cubs to find someone like that. I fear that kind of trade will likely have to wait until the CBA clears up a lot. There's so much murky water with the 2022 and beyond look for...

    There's almost no names, and that's why I think they're gonna have to fix guys on the fly. Pitch mix is an immediate fix. Pitch repetoire...not so much.

    If you're looking at the market, Kyle...

    The Cubs need Nico as much as they need a SP. I'd assume Hoerner is not being traded.

    Instead, I'd expect some pitchers who seemingly have poor numbers but have some under the hood stuff that...

    The Cubs are unlikely to trade any major prospect of theirs and Buxton would cost...most of them. He also has injury concerns.

    The SP market sucks. But they'll have to dive into it. They...

    I don't think Weathers is all that good. Ignore the ERA for a moment and you'll notice how low his K/9 is (under 6.5). His LOB% is way too high. All of this is reflected in his 4.5+ xFIP.

    Alzolay is on the IL with a blister and needed an arm. He pitched bad tonight, and realistically, the expectations from a 31 year old who's never carved out an MLB role should have been low.

    That...

    It's got the lowest RD in the league, and it's not particularly close (source:https://twitter.com/Buster_ESPN/status/1404030793920417798?s=19), so I think there's some legitimacy in how bad people...

    The Cubs may not have infinite money, but but easily have the ability to spend $200+m every year on a team. They currently have $40m on the books for next year. Frankly, they can resign the core...

    No such rumor exists from anyone credible. Bryant has maintained publicly he's open to resign. If the Cubs offer him what he's worth I have no doubt he'd sign here. The question has always been...

    It's weird because I both think this is the correct action but the timing is odd. Maybe it's better late than never. They did give a grace period, so if players want to avoid this, they can. And...

    So...a few issues here. While the ".740 OPS" in his last 95 PA's may look rough, it's a perfect example of why you cannot just use OPS willy nilly and how OPS has all sorts of issues build in. It...

    I'm not sure I'd agree with that. The Cubs are a fine, but highly flawed team. The Mets have less cracks. While I don't want to say it's impossible, as constructed today, I think the Mets are...

    He should really only be a platoon hitter. Sadly, they have no definitively better option against RHP. You can't trust Marisnick in that role, over his nearly 1200 PA's against RHP he's got a 76...

    Their UDFAs the last few years between Bain, Kobos and Leeper have been very interesting. Getting anything out of any one of them would be huge.
