It’s time to put some respect on Ian Happ’s name
Ian Happ is, and always has been, a gamer. It’s not just an opinion at this point, his stats back it up.
Compiled stats on Baseball-Reference shows Ian Happ has compiled workman-like stats over his 6 years in the bigs with The Cubs. He has compiled a career .250 BA, and an .806 OPS. Anything over an .800 OPS puts a player in high level company, and at 28 years old it seems Happer is coming into his prime. He has an All-Star game under his belt, and recently set an MLB record that I still can’t really put my head around.
It’s very rare that a player plays his whole career with one franchise, and I don’t expect him to be one of the players that do. There are plenty of opinions on the path the Cubs should go as well. Simply put though, Ian Happ is a player you can win with, which outside of having another year of control, is a big reason the Cubs probably chose to keep him around.
The season is winding down, so let’s drink some beers for Happer, and show him some love!
