2016 Cubs catch-all thread

Recommended Posts

Kyle Hendricks career line: .076/.116/.086.

 

They deserve all the credit for what a great "HITTER " they developed there

Hard-hitting analysis! Cubs pitchers can't bat. This argument would be so funny if it weren't so sad.

You forgot the

 

IN THE DRAFT part. It is critical we find talent in the field IN THE DRAFT. Tim Anderson is a good start (although he walks less than Bran Stark). That needs to happen ALL THE TIME.

 

How are you not on TV with this sick combination of advanced baseball knowledge, snarky jokes, and ability to always keep it real and not be one of those yucky "fans"?

 

Hope you got a Costco membership, bulk buying Jergens is in your best interests financially at the rate you're burning through it every time someone says the C word.

The walk hasn't been an "advanced stat" in like 100 years, but thanks for playing.

Walks aren't "advanced baseball knowledge". They're common sense.

 

A BA of .300 is good, but a OBP of .300 really isn't. His OBP needs to improve. Walk more.

If Sale weren't starting, I would want him to do the same thing.

 

Unlike the Sox, the game actually means something for the cubs.

So if Arrieta does not start he is taking his ball and going home.

You're right, because if the NL loses, the Cubs get a DH to bolster their lineup for an extra game in the World Series. That's assuming a lot, of course. The Cubs couldn't really lose this game.

This makes no sense. Of course they want home field advantage if they can get it. 6 of last 7 teams with home field advantage won the WS

LOL!! Yeah, right...the Cubs (or ANY NL team for that matter) didn't want home field advantage "IF" they get to the World Series. Give me a break. You really are completely consumed by the hype, so much so that you come up with some nonsensical bullcrap when 6 of the last 7 World Series' have been won by the team with home field advantage. Go read some more comic books. #rentfree

Wow...just a terrible post. Maybe you should start trolling Red Sox & Blue Jays message boards with this nonsense and see how quickly you get ripped apart.

Sure, but they have the lineup to take advantage of the DH slot.

 

If we are going off meaningless correlation, 5 of the last 7 WS teams have been in the NL.

The Cubs are built like a dangerous AL type team. Whatever dude. Go cry in your name's irrelevance while Rick goes and trades for Carlos Beltran. Admit it, your brain shuts off when you talk about the Cubs. Go cry about the White Sox in the entire board dedicated to it. We are here to talk about the Cubs, a team that would benefit more from the DH than many other teams in the NL

Seriously, why would a team like the Cubs EVER want to bat their pitcher? Every game they bench a top prospect because they have to let the pitcher bat.

If Arrieta wasn't wearing anything on the ESPN cover, is it because he forgot his thong and that's why he can't DH in the World Series now?
