    Well, it's not like the Cubs are waiting in anticipation to get back his 1-3 record with a 4.95 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. If the only problem is his toughness and he's putting up those kinds of numbers healthy, then that's even worse.

    ^the fact that anyone would even consider comparing this guy to Goldy is proof of how overrated Correa has been for the last couple years. Like I said earlier, Lindor (let alone Goldy) has been clearly better for a long time and was still drafted behind Correa.

    Well, that's kinda silly because you don't draft someone at Correa's ADP to be your "biggest problem" Or even a small problem for that matter. You draft a player that high to be one of -the best guys on your team-. When I said he's the 53rd hitter and 84th overall standard scoring, I was citing ESPN's player rater, which is purely mathematical. I mean, you can argue that math. But at least it's not based on some guy's random opinion.

    Borderline top 25? Carlos Correa is ranked 53rd among hitters on the standard scoring player rater. 84th overall.

    ^I was quoting him about Lindor, who happens to be the top SS on the standard scoring player rater atm.

    This post was a whole two weeks ago. We probably need an update on the "player rater."

    If those are the only choices (they aren't), Andujar is better than Devers and Nunez combined. So it would almost certainly be the Sox.

    I agree. To me those are must-start type numbers. He's off to a good start at least. We'll see.

    ^In other words, don't try to profit by being a prophet because you're really no closer to knowing which closer will get the closer job.

    Well, Dyson's stats are unimpressive. But I don't think people are saying Dyson is bad solely because of his stats/numbers. He's just shown himself to wilt under pressure over the years moreso than the "closer" prototype guys who can find a way to get the job done night after night even without their best stuff, like say Jansen. Jansen struggled for a bit and then figured it out fairly quickly. Dyson on the other hand is the type to snowball a little trouble into big trouble and then into huge problems where he's nearly losing his spot on the roster, let alone the closer job. And so now, here we have a little trouble after last night. So I think the sentiment around here is more based on a "de ja vu all over again" feeling than Dyson's stats, which like I said are certainly unimpressive, especially for a closer.

    From Rotowire: After almost a week with no news, "" just now figured all this out. That's Canada for you.

    ^Edwards is on the DL and hasn't pitched in like a month. Apparently he's throwing right now though. So he might be back before Morrow is.

    I just took a look and the Cubs situation seems pretty murky to say the least. Strop has gotten the 8th most often recently. Cishek got the 9th in one of yesterday's games. But in the other game Cishek came on in the 6th and gave up a run on 2 hits in 0.2 innings before getting the hook for a lefty. Duensing could also be in the mix and has gotten late inning work. But as a lefty, I'm guessing he'll continue to be used as needed vs. lefties. And then there's Wilson, who actually got the opportunity (and blew it) in extra innings yesterday. Wilson was closing for the Tigers before coming over too. Anyway, at first, I was leaning Cishek because of his 100+ career saves vs. Strop's ten. But after some thought, Cishek's extreme sidearm delivery gives him pretty extreme lefty/righty splits. So it kinda makes sense for him to be used in combo with Duensing and/or Wilson to put out fires while having Strop close. Like I said, murky. I guess I'd vote Strop if push came to shove and I could only add one of them because of the reasoning above. Maybe Maddon will just come out and name a guy. But I wouldn't hold my breath for that.

    I guess the Canadian media are just garbage. With some accurate reporting, I might at least be able to drop this fool for someone who plays, depending on the info.

    They do. I mean anyone playing SS in the major leagues is going to be an elite athlete. But yeah. They do.
