    Cubs 2022 thread

    I just can't get over what a wasteland 2nd base has been here going on 20 years. I get why people make Madrigal jokes, but the 112 wRC+ he put up here is quite good for a 2nd baseman. The Cubs have a logjam there and he strikes me as someone who could be expendable. With that said, yeah, of course they have too many slap hitters. That's why I'm still rocking with Gallo as my avatar.

    I don't like the idea of rushing prospects, particularly to help *this* team, but Colas is old enough and he's dominating to such an extent that he might be ready for the bigs. It'd be peak TLR for the Sox to promote Colas and then still have Eloy, Vaughn, Sheets etc playing in the outfield over him

    If they were willing to call up Sosa from AA, why not Colas?

    Hologram Harry Caray is one of the most disturbing things I've ever seen in my life. I have no idea how anyone could have thought that was a good idea.

    Caveats can apply if you want, but Colas is doing to Birmingham exactly what Eloy & Robert did. He just seems way too good for the level.

    Is Alsander Womack a dude? He's not ridiculously old for the level or anything, plate discipline seems very good, and after tonight's 3 hit game (so far) his wRC+ will be up around 120.

    Cubs 2022 thread

    Ashamed to admit I watch the Cubs wondering what it would take to get Madrigal back. If he can stay healthy (huge if), I think he's going to be a ~110 wRC+ guy.

    Yoan would play through it but go 4 for 110 while doing so

    Him staying in the game is pretty shocking considering how bad that looked in the moment. Hopefully he's alright.

    Any hitter on the big league team gets that pitch and it's popped into RF. Love seeing the bat speed to get in front of a high 4 seamer like that.

    Thompson is looking like a win, even if it's just relative to the other arms in this system.

    I'm not convinced Dalquist is salvageable at all. At least not in this organization. A change of scenery seems like it might be best for him.

    His swing is so damn quick. That's such easy bat speed.

    Tigers fire Avila

    I never expected to be so jealous of Tigers fans.

    Old Sock Drawer, ex Sox player discussion

    The organization doesn't seem to place any value on defense at all.

    8/10 at KC - Cueto vs. Bubic (7:10 start)

    Abreu has 6 more in him but it might take until the last series of the year.

    Most players don't lose their ability to play baseball at 27. In the long-term, I think he's going to be fine

    No, they just need him to hit better. Rick Hahn isn't finding a better 3rd baseman than Yoan when he's going right.

    Of course the Sox can't take advantage of an outfielder forgetting how many outs there are

    8/10 at KC - Cueto vs. Bubic (7:10 start)

    Constantly seems like he's out guessed at the plate.

    I'm Yoan's biggest defender but it's insane Burger isn't up platooning with him

    Somehow there's room on this team for Gavin Sheets to start against a lefty but not Jake Burger.
