To be fair, there is no guarantee he gets hurt if he stays with the cubs.So you'd have been totally fine with him posting 0 combined WAR in 2017-2018, playing less than 100 games total because maybe he'll someday hit potential? And you would rather have had his -0.9 WAR season in 2017 than Davis's 32 saves in 33 chances in a season where the Cubs went to the NLCS? Are you out of your mind?
I believe the cubs led the league in opposite field hits this year. What the cubs really need to get better at is hitting the ball in the air.To be fair, there is no guarantee he gets hurt if he stays with the cubs.
That said, I wouldn't bet against it lol.
Not sure why others are making such a big fuss about soler. He's a fairly low obp guy that slugs and plays mediocre OF. Sound like anyone else?
If schwarber can learn to beat the shift he could be a beast and its one thing I'd like to see change with Joe gone. I am so sick of seeing other teams slap the bal opposite of our shift while our guys either strike out of just hit right into it. Whatever happen to the damn slap hit?
Justin stone is a heck of a hitting coach, he is a legend in the chicago baseball community.Major shuffling of roles in player development this morning. I’d post the link, but even to me these are just names. What is important at first glance is that this all seems internal. No new outside voices.
They will name a manager right after the WS. It is fairly common for vacancies to last until the first GM/Owners meetings that occur about a week after the WS ends.The longer it takes for the Cubs to name a new manager,
their chances of making a mistake are less. This is a big
deal and Theo cannot afford to make a bad choice.
its on his Twitter account. His grievance hearing from 2015 is finally being held. If he wins it’s a total sham, the cubs didn’t do anything wrong waiting to bring him up.Holy crap! Kap just said Kris Bryant is waiting on a decision that will make him a FA 1 year early if they find in his favor.
Kap just broke this — can’t find anything on Twitter.
