Ok at this point you're not even trying to have a reasonable conversation so I'm moving on. But it's this simple. The cubs are paying Joc $4.5 mil this year. Schwarber would have made over $8 mil in arbitration and even if you try to make this a case of them not having to pay that by non-tendering him.... Schwarber still got $7 mil this year with a $10 mil/$3 mil buy out option for next year. With that savings the cubs brought back Tepera who they also didn't tender a contract and who has been one of the best relievers in baseball. They also brought in Jake Marisnick who's been a very good role player for them.Now a 0.2 WAR = a guy playing good baseball
And apparently replacing a 0.2 WAR player with a 1.3 WAR player wouldn’t improve the team any
again, I stated it mostly to point out how Kyle was mashing Mets pitching, the same pitching that just got done mowing the cubs lineup down
The cubs are getting more for their money plain and simple.
