daily fantasy baseball picks

Old School vs New School clash as XN Sports contributor Felipe Melecio has a conversation with The Reverend Robert Holliday as they attempt to explain the first half of the Chicago Cubs’ season and look over a select few players. The former will use stats for his evaluations, while the latter uses the “eye test” to pass judgment:

–Stats Test vs Eye Test (is their really a difference or does Theo Epstein get the last laugh?)
–Fun with Hawk Harrelson
–Do we miss Starlin Castro?
–The progress of Javier Baez, Addison Russell, and Jorge Soler
–Jason Heyward 2nd Half revival?
–A Look back at the Matt Garza trade with the Texas Rangers
–Fun with WAR: Ernie Banks vs Lou Boudreau
–Chicago Bulls Talk: Derrick Rose is gone, Jimmy Butler is here to stay, where do we go from here?
