Love for Lester and Arrieta, but less confidence in Hendricks.
Analysis and Commentary
Just what ever fan wants to see: guaranteed sac bunts in extra innings.
What if I told you Jason Heyward projected to be the Cubs’ third most valuable position player in 2017?
I’m all about progress in the game, but that’s too far even for me. Also: Albert Almora as a possible surprise player this year.
Your first look at the PECOTA projected standings paint a grim picture in the NL Central. Well, except for the Cubs.
McLeod is not calling Butler the next Jake Arrieta, but there sure are a lot of situational similarities.
If he’s healthy, Anderson is a perfect fit for this particular Cubs team. Of course, health is the big question.
31 years old. A professional life dedicated to basketball. Jordan picked up a bat, and competed.
Running game concerns are often overstated, but it’s something to consider, with David Ross retiring.
Yes, Jason Heyward struggled in 2016, but perhaps not as badly as he should have.
How close can Albert Almora and Jon Jay realistically get in a combination?
The Super Bowl is here, and everyone seems to be rooting against the Cardinals – er, I mean Patriots. Also, Joe Smith signs elsewhere.
It could take some time for Jason Heyward’s swing to really take hold. Also: the hole at Wrigley is gone, a potentially problematic law in Illinois, and much more.
Is the most compelling race going to come down to the Cubs, Cardinals, and Pirates? Or will the AL East be the must-watch division to most pundits (again)?
The new CBA appears to be causing problems for marginal free agents especially.
