    This site is awesome, but there is a mistake. Jaime Candelario was not born in the Dominican Republic. He was born in New York City, New York. He moved to Dominican Republic when he was 5, therefore becoming a citizen of there rather than the USA and was not eligible to be drafted, so he signed with the Cubs as an international free agent.

    Amazing resource. Is there a list of the players on the current 40 man roster? I see you keep up on it, but a list on this page could be helpful. (more keywords for you as well)

      No, they’re currently only indicated by background color. We’re in the process of moving to a new database. Once that’s done, I’m sure we can come up with an easy way to pull that up quickly.

    Gerardo Concepcion is from Cuba. He may have defected to Dominican Republic to “establish residency” to become able to sign (not sure), but he’s from Cuba.

      It was the wrong “how acquired” info altogether. It’s been fixed. Thanks Timothy!

    Okay Giovanni soto is not a rp. In your transactions it lists him as a rp. This is very helpful though

      Not sure if they have a set platoon but the one that I have listed would have Soler in LF and Contreras as the catcher with Montero on bench vs LHP.

    This will certainly not be the “Go-To” lineup next season. Jon Jay is nice pickup but I’m skeptical he will be an everyday player. He will likely play more of a Matt Szczur/Tommy La Stella role. Ben Zobrist seems like the most traditional option to lead-off but as we know, Joe Maddon is not much of a traditionalist. He actually makes a lot of sense hitting behind Rizzo like he did down the stretch last year. He also loves batting Schwarber second because it forces pitchers to pitch to him and takes advantage of his high OBP. Maddon flirted with Baez leading off last year, and it might not stick long-term, but I can see him returning to that line of thought given his speed and base running ability. He also seems like the most likely to pick up the “You Go, We Go” mantle without Fowler. If Baez doesn’t stick at the top I could see him going to Heyward or even Schwarber next, but not Jay. The “Real Go-To” lineup will look like this:

    2B Javier Baez
    LF Kyle Schwarber
    3B Kris Bryant
    1B Anthony Rizzo
    RF Ben Zobrist
    SS Addison Russell
    C Willson Contreras
    CF Jason Heyward

      Not at all. I think they’re open to adding a lefty setup man but they’re probably set in the ‘pen.
