re: MLB Trade Deadline Thread (7/25: Chapman to Cubs for Torres, McKinney, Warren,+) - therick711
[quote]The one who went from a player a .300/.406/.531 to .260/.404/.525... His average took a nosedive from him being a 40 double/40 home run threat in Oak to a 20/40 threat with the Yankees. His strikeouts went up dramatically, so he went from being a solid all-around hitter to a 3 outcome hit...

Ironically, the person with the best chance to catch that was Schwarber. I don't think seasoning or polish had anything to do with what was a freak injury....

Fangraphs article is some things to consider. He has things he absolutely has to improve in his offensive game. That being said, I'll take a chance on a 23 year old left-handed slugger that has his tools at the plate....

Schwarber had a terrible NLCS and everyone assumes he can't play. The guy is 23. I saw KB make a similar mistake in right field last week (he's 24). Young guys are going to learn how to play outfield. You can't teach someone to mash from the left side like Schwarber does. Also, if he can master...

re: MLB Trade Deadline Thread (7/25: Chapman to Cubs for Torres, McKinney, Warren,+) - therick711
I read a great Grantland piece about Schwarber where they were trying to figure out why every team in the world wants Schwarber when all they will say publicly is how terrible he is. The numbers actually showed he was league average in Left. If he is what the Cubs think he is offensively, he's pla...

If Chapman gets extended like an elite closer, I don't think he'll care if he's a setup guy. That being said, you can never know. I still remember Soriano being unable to contribute a thing unless he led off....

[quote]Reds got Rookie Davis, Eric Jagielo, Tony Renda and Caleb Cotham for Chapman, and the Yankees got Torres, McKinney, and Warren, and another dude for him, with one less year of control. [/quote] That's why you don't sell him right after he fires the warning shots....

re: MLB Trade Deadline Thread (7/25: Chapman to Cubs for Torres, McKinney, Warren,+) - therick711
Gleyber is the centerpiece. Warren had success for the Yanks, but when they traded him to the Cubs he performed like a slightly skinnier Trevor Cahill. McKinney is a corner outfielder that has less than ideal power but is otherwise a pretty good player. Playa Tubenamed is a guy that hits a ton, s...
