  1. Chicago Cubs Thread - #secondhalfcubs

    His D is really bad out in CF. At least he had been hitting the crap out of the ball lately. KB was the one who has looked really bad offensively last night. Really strange to see. Yu to the DL with triceps tendinitis and will get an MRI today or tomorrow. Feel free to pucker your bungholes.
  2. MLB GDT IT’S HEREEEEE

    Russell Martin is starting at SS today for the Jays.

    MLBTR mentions a vesting option at $22 million for 2019 if he reaches 400 PAs or something like that. He's not performing well, and the Red Sox were going to make him ride the pine going forward. May as well open up that bench spot for someone that could "contribute" as much as HanRam is right now, while getting experience for the future.
  4. Fair point about Hamilton. He only hurt himself. The type of offense is more reprehensible for sure, but both Bush and Heimlich knowingly made decisions that hurt other people. Bush should have not been given a chance to play major league baseball again. But we've gone through our respective positions on DUIs ad nauseum in the Oscar Taveras discussion.
  5. Organized Team Activities

    Tannehill and Amendola are clicking early on as well, apparently. I honestly don't care about any of it, just so long as everybody stays healthy.
  6. That's one of the teams that would have seemed likely to give him a chance, after Matt Bush, Josh Hamilton, etc.
  7. MLB Released Report Confirming Ball is Juiced

    The Sammy Sosa method? Bold move.
  8. Callis with the new mock: https://www.mlb.com/news/mock-draft-college-players-get-picked-early/c-278228058 Yes please, to Larnach being there at 24 for the Cubs.

    He DOES have great instincts, soft and quick hands, etc. But those don’t encompass the five major tools in baseball, which is what the posters on here are saying. Your superstars have at least one or more plus tools.

    Well, Joe is trying like hell to ruin the game for you. First, an idiotic suicide squeeze call with Javy up and no outs, and then he inexplicably lets Heyward hit against Miller with a runner in scoring position and lefty masher Almora still available.

    Speaking of the Yankees, since they never get any discussion in here, what the actual hell happened to Didi the past month? Is he hurt? -28 (yes, negative) wRC+ since April 28th.

    I don't envy you for having to watch that. My son had teeball, so I only caught the first 2 innings. Enough to know that Chatwood (Shatwood? Walkwood?) had absolutely nothing going yesterday. He'd been walking a tightrope all season with his ridiculous walk rate, and it finally bit him. I'm more concerned about Montgomery though. I didn't watch him yesterday, but the results were terrible, and his past few outings seemed like he didn't give a rat's ***. I know he was vocal about being a starter this offseason, but I would hope he would be professional enough to get over that.

    Zero plus tools was the "knock" on Torres, along with the fact that he wasn't going to stick at SS. The hit tool was thought to be plus, but then he started having issues in the minors with better breaking stuff and most scouts dropped the hit tool to above average/borderline plus. But above average on most tools and zero below average tools is still a very nice player.

    Gonna be a really contested race for the WC spots in the NL this year.
