    Cubs thread 2k19

    Which team has the most wins in all of baseball the last four years?. What other team has done that and made the LCS three times? Which team has done that and won a World Series Championship? Which team has done all that and currently has the best record in the NL? Only a Great Team. Sorry.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    Wow, look who has the best record in the NL and is the hottest team in baseball with the highest run diff. You're dream will not come true. That's why it is better to focus on the White Sox and not the Cubs accomplishments. If you are getting your baseball joy from Cub failure you will be disappointed for a long time. You're letting your hate get in the way of seeing what is real. Cubs are really good and will be for awhile; just have to deal with it. Focus on the White Sox. You will feel better.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    Again only the haters wrote them off. Real baseball fans did not, just like they have not written off the Red Sox or written "in" the D-Backs, Twins and to a lesser degree the Rays. They still could fall far short of a title but it wasn't lost on the first road trip. Nor was Pecota justified in that first week.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    Running out only for the haters. Most wins in all of baseball last 4 years, 3 NLCS appearances, World Series Champion. Hottest team in baseball right now. Still great. Window Wide open for several more years. Have to learn to deal with it and focus on the Sox not the Cub accomplishments.

    As a CA resident, I get a first hand view of what a proper rebuild should look like. Feels bad man. You don't have to live in CA to get a first hand view of what a proper rebuild should look like. We can just look across town. They rebuilt from top to bottom.

    Teams with as many or more WS/playoff appearances

    It worse than this. White Sox fewest playoff appearance since the beginning of baseball.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Then put a $325/10 year deal on the table with an opt out after year 5 and act like professionals. That's in no way a terrible deal for this player with his previous performance. Do you really think he wanted to go to the Padres? They're like 29th out of 30 teams in wins over the last 6 seasons. Padres had 13 more wins that the White Sox over the last six years. S

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    Agree, ERA especially for relievers is a poor metric. It just happened to be the way this schedule was ranked. But their fWar was top five until Morrow and Edwards were hurt and Cishek worn out. My point is not to defend the Cubs but to stop the blindness on what really is happening because of the fog of hate, when there are so many worthwhile stats out there. Every one can use another arm in the pen. An issue which is being exacerbated by the current trend to cut back on starters innings. Bullpens are throwing 100 more innings in recent years. Cubs didn't lose at the end because of the bullpen. They lost because they stopped hitting.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    To Whitesox 27 Perhaps you should check your facts. They were worn out and struggled at the end but were not "god awful". As is typical with some posters here you let your hate get in the way of truth.

    So is no one falling on the sword for 2018?

    Ok, you started in 1983 so I did the math starting in 1983. In 1983 there were 4 teams in the playoffs, in 1994 there were 0, in 1995 that ballooned to 8, and it went to 10 in 2012. Since 1983, therefore, there have been 250 playoff spots available. I totaled up the number of teams that played in each season - counting the 2 expansions to figure out, on average, how many years would each franchise go between a playoff appearance if everything was random. On average, right now there are 10 spots and 30 teams, so if everything was random right now each team would make the playoffs 1x every 3 years. Pushing that back in time, I find that over the time period starting in 1983, average performance overall would be just under 1 in 4. The average franchise playing over that full time period would have 8.789 playoff appearances in the stretch from 1983 to 2018.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So an average team would have Nine playoff appearances in the last 35 seasons. The White Sox have 9 playoff appearances.......IN THE HISTORY OF THE FRANCHISE. They have the worst playoff appearance percentage in baseball since the beginning of baseball. This is why attendance is low. This is why there is no national recognition of this franchise. This is why it is the second baseball team in Chicago and likely now the least relevant professional franchise in town. This franchise was failure before Reinsdorf et. al. purchased it and it hasn't changed much since he did.

    So is no one falling on the sword for 2018?

    You all are acting like this is new. Take a look at this. The White Sox have been providing the poorest product in baseball since the beginning of baseball. The lowest percentage of playoff appearance among all teams. I believe they have 9 total appearances. 2008,2005,2000,1993, 1983, 1959, 1919,1917,1906.
