A super impressive interview with a guy who used statistics to help improve his game dramatically. Also: Matt Szczur’s a great guy, a terrible article, no Cubs outfield prospects, more.
A bargain for the Astros? A new deal for Francisco Cervelli? The spendthrift Yankees?
There are implications for many other teams here, including the Cubs, depending on what happens. (UPDATE: Corey Dickerson going to Rays for pitching.)
He was the second hardest hitting pitcher in the game last year by exit velocity. It’s just that, well, there are other issues.

Is that a fair spot for the Cubs’ star first baseman? Is there anyone you’d take over Rizzo?
30 of 32 games are available by audio and/or video.
Miguel Montero is a very solid starter to have in place, and the Cubs are like that everywhere. Plus Heyward’s D, player age, much more.
