Chicago Cubs: Fowler is a game changer

The Fans, The Metrics, and Dexter Fowler

Dexter Fowler played 959 innings in center field for the Astros in 2014, which is noteworthy mostly because he was traded to the Cubs on Monday, but also because of how poorly the defensive metrics rated him for those 959 innings.

Better Know a Cub: Dexter Fowler

Yesterday, the Cubs spun Lou Goodvalue and Dan Straily into their (presumable) starting CF for 2015. A short eulogy for Luis Valbuena follows. Valbuena was underrated by the general population and probably slightly overrated by the blogging community (and with his batflips, it’s easy to see why).

New CF Fowler steps in seamlessly to lead Astros

Dexter Fowler had spent his entire career with Colorado before an offseason trade to the Houston Astros. But the center fielder isn't taking the quiet approach of a new guy. He's already perfectly at home with Houston, taking over a leadership role this young team desperately needed. He says: ''It's a good chance to get to nurture the guys ...

Houston Astros rumors: Shin-Soo Choo edition

The Houston Astros are in need of some help. Coming off a horrifying 51-111 campaign that ended with 15 straight losses, the Astros are ready for change. They have a bounty of young prospects and a few good pieces, but the Astros need a cog in their lineup that they can rely on for top-level production.
