its only a matter of time until they trade schwarber
he cant stay in the NL
The NL doesn't like power hitters?
Everyone wanted him and the Cubs said no. What makes you think they will change their mind?

hes a real defensive liability in the outfield
he will cost them games in the outfield
over the course of the season, his numbers will look great.
but what happens in the postseason when you have to take your big slugger out late in the game. or what happens when he blows a big play in the field? you wont care that he hit 40 homers during the regular season

I guess you and the Cubs think differently. They would have loved to have him in the field and his bat in the lineup for games 3/4/5.

That depends. You might get someone that can't field or hit.  :)

They will say we always listen to all offers, but he is and always was "untouchable"

He can field. He can be a catcher too. The thing is that usually players spend a few years in the minor leagues fine tuning and his bat was too good so he has to learn on the job instead.

come on, hes a liability in the outfield
he can catch, but then that still takes his bat out of the lineup more than you want to
im not saying he aint a major leaguer, im saying his value is much higher in the AL

He's basing it on the 2015 NLCS vs the Mets. But the rest of the season he was better than that. Also, I mentioned already that he didn't practice much outfield before that in his life, so he will get waaaay better.

Back to the Future called it close enough IMO.

Not to mention Trump as the most powerful man on Earth. Not bad for 1985.

I'm sorry, but coming in second for MOY, even if your team wins 150 games, when you have SEVEN all stars, none of whom missed significant time for injury, is a liiiiiiitle bit of a joke.

Maybe if the Cubs would have been up 3-1 and then choked we would have seen Madden as MOY.  :)

Yes, because Maddon managed brilliantly in Game 7.
(He was so bad that they were still killing him on NY radio two days after he WON THE WS!!!)

They were all all-stars because they listened to his message and "Embraced the Target". Also, Kyle Schwarber practically missed the whole season b/c of injury.
So you're saying that if a manager is given a good team- he can't win MOY?
lol,
For the record, playoffs don't count for MOY, but really good comment!
