    Probably even more, because prior to losing last year as a full year, he had lat injuries and other issues. He essentially hasn't had a full year in 3 years. It's probably fatigue brought on by...

    He was not traded in the first 2 weeks of May.

    If the argument is "they have no choice", fair. Right now, they don't have another choice. They SHOULD have other choices; they picked him because he's free. The Cubs didn't pay **** for their...

    He has a .222 xwOBA. Being versatile literally only matters if you're good. Being bad at a lot of things just means you're bad.

    Sogard is just bad. Hes a 0 fWAR player thus far and has the...

    Ground balls have higher exit velo usually. But he's not hit well at all this year. He's struggling. His LA is 1/2 what it was last year. He does need to get the ball up like last year.

    Sogard has been worth 0.0 fWAR on the season. He literally hasn't helped anyone win anything.

    Yessir. Hes the tip of the spear. Cubs have had some great developmental steps in their pitching department. I'm still concerned about workload and "can he withstand a full year SP load?" but...

    Let's not let 1 PA confuse us. Sogard had a 68 wRC+ entering tonight. Every year that would make him the worst hitter in baseball, or at best, second worst. His one PA helped. Sogard, overall,...

    Steele hasn't been a starter for a while. No. He's BP. Keegan isn't very interesting as a SP. The Cubs shouldn't be excited for him to ever be a SP on the MLB team.

    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...
