Re: Chris Davis back to Baltimore - 7 years $161M

So the Orioles are bringing back the same 81 win team as last year minus Chen and plus a whole lot of payroll and minus any semblance of a farm. Sounds like a great winning strategy.

Re: 2016 MLB Draft Discussion

Going to be hard to get motivated and learn all the names when the Cubs may even end picking until the second round.

Re: Sherman - Cubs (and others obv) expected to be in on Alex Gordon

With the seeming lack of market for hitters this offseason, does Fowler come back to the Cubs? We know they offered him a 2 year deal this offseason but he wanted more years. With guys like Gordon,Cespedes and Upton struggling to get 4 or 5 year deals, things can't be looking good for Fowler. I'd t...

Re: Denard Span signs 3 year deal with Giants.

SFG has had a really good offseason. Not sure if FGs agrees or not, but they're pretty clearly the #2 team in the NL right now.

Brendan Ryan was never going to be on the active roster, so it has as much bearing on Baez as releasing Olmos did earlier.


Well as of right now the only people capable of playing SS are Baez and Russell.

No stats to back it up, but he seems to absolutely destroy the Cubs each and every time they play. Hopefully it's just Blackmon.

Re: Mike Leake

I really don't think he's any better than the options STL already has. The one thing he does bring is an ability to eat innings and the others like Cooeny,Gonzales, etc don't have.

I have never left the Soler bandwagon. He reminds me too much of Vlad Guerrero.


Far more worried about the defense than the bat. He's going to mash.

Re: Todd Frazier to White Sox in three team deal

That's what I thought about last season's moves, but I like what they've done this offseason. Lawrie and Frazier are neither overly expensive nor are they both going to immediately decline due to age each year in Chicago(unlike the LaRoche/Shark moves). Frazier isn't a *long* term piece, but neithe...

I'm just going to assume he stole this idea word for word because I don't like the thought of Canseco being intelligent enough to come up with this crazy plan.

Re: Todd Frazier to White Sox in three team deal

Starting to wonder if LA is trying to amass enough chess pieces to make a run at Fernandez. They certainly have a few intriguing pitching prospects They now have 6 pitchers who will be MLB ready in 2016 but no rotation spots for them. Urias,De Leon,Cotton,Anderson,Lee and Montas. That is an enormou...

Did they really want Peraza so much? Why not just take the package the Sox sent to the Dodgers? The package the Dodgers got is so much better. Why were the Dodgers even involved unless the Reds absolutely had to have Peraza? If that's the case they're an even more laughable organization than I thou...
