Re: Hosmer to the Padres - 8 Years $144M

I guess the shift of Myers to 1b wasn't because he couldn't play outfield anymore. He's only logged 50 games in the outfield in the last 3 years, and 40 of those were in 2015.

Lester needs to give it up. If Bryce is signing for such a small portion of what he could get anywhere else, he must also take one for the team.

I despise the term " There is no there there". I've seen it on several news media channels, and it's just dumb dumb.

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

Definitely feels like a statement to remove doubt that the Cubs were afraid of Arrieta's health. The Cubs offered up extensions and Jake rejected them, with the intent of looking for his big payday. I'm sure the Cubs hope he gets it, but there have not been any leaks on the Cubs showing any interest...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

Imagining a trade deadline one half a season before a lot of top tier players become free agents could create some good deals while teams try to free up salary/contract guarantees before the free agent window opens. I'd rather wait and see if there are some needs/deals at the deadline rather than us...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

An understated result of this offseason's moves is the SP depth being built up beyond this year. The 2019 team has: Quintana Darvish Hendricks Lester Chatwood Smyly Montgomery All under contract, plus Alzolay, Mills, Tseng, and an outside shot at at one of the college pitchers making the leap.

Pretty sure Yu wouldn't want a no trade clause in his contract if he signs with Milwaukee. More like a you must trade me clause.

I have it from a completely unreliable source that Yu Darvish is a member of this site and reads it daily. He hasn't signed yet because he finds this thread funny, and he never wants the funny to end.

Re: RE: Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Freeman signed a 3/12 deal and has a 4m cap hit. I'm not gonna complain if we do cut him but I think when he's healthy he's one of the better ILB in the game. He can captain a defense and has a great nose for the ball. As depth I don't think we can do a lot better in terms of actual play on the fie...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

The real fascination at this point is that some team 3 months into the free agency process is all of a sudden going to wake up from a deep slumber and go all in on Darvish. With the early signees out of the way, he's been ripe for the taking for 2 solid months now and nothings happened. And if the ...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

There is no way any team is giving him a 7-year deal. If that's the holdup, it may be well into the season before he signs. Who wants to pay a 39-year-old pitcher 25M/year? Can you imagine how far apart they must be if Theo is sticking with a 4-year deal and Darvish want's almost twice as long? Thi...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Give Jake 5 years and move on. He helped us win a championship for the first time in 108 years. Nuf said. Or, let's be not as good of a team for the next 5 years because of an impatient month in January and two months before the season even begins. That'll surely show Darvish who is boss. It sucks ...

At this point, no one is bidding anything higher. I don't see anyone able to make an offer of more years or dollars. Holding out isn't working, or he is just the most indecisive guy ever. And none of this waiting is making Theo antsy. He made his offer and he's sticking to it, and it is likely stil...
