Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

horsefeathers Joe, Pete, Tom, Todd, and the rest of the Ricketts. I don’t understand why rich people also have to be dicks. It seems like they all are. My dealings with people who have that kind of money are next to none, but I have to imagine being born into a family that had loads of money leads ...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

Two years ago, the Cubs traded for Justin Wilson, and he was a disaster. He couldn’t find the plate, and the trade was a failure....that year. He was pretty solid last year. My hope is that zchatwood follows a similar path. I’d be happy if he weren’t a dumpster fire this upcoming season. If Chatwoo...

Re: College Basketball 2018-2019

I hung out with Roger Powell today. That was a win. Sure was, good for you. He's an amazing guy. Had some interesting perspective on the program considering Bryce was somewhat interested in it. If he was told the truth by Bryce, I don't think this is ever going to get better. I would believe anythi...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

Seriously trying to figure out what cincy is doing with this move... this doesn’t move the needle that much for them does it? Can’t see them any better than third, and that’s with everything breaking right for them. How much salary does this actually save them?

Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

Can Manfred somehow make them sell the team? Preferably to someone who throws money around as freely as Trump makes an idiot out of himself.

Re: The Business of Baseball (AKA never side with management)

I have no idea how you'd pull it off, but man, kick the stupid drafting and rookie contract systems out and set it up so that everyone is just a FA when they show up. The bigger teams can't buy EVERYONE. Alright, now tell me why i'm dumb and this would lead to anarchy and madness. There's very much...

Don't like this trade because Goldschmidt kills us and we own Weaver. Sure would be nice to have an extra draft pick to trade because "reasons."

Re: Rule 5 draft/40 man roster

Saw a tweet that Minnesota isn't going to put Tyler Jay on their 40-man... lefty reliever, 6th pick in 2015 draft, throws low 90s. Might be worth a look, though he has struggled in the minors - has had some shoulder issues so that may be related.

Yes, he makes some serious head-scratching in-game decisions, but the Cubs also won a flipping WS just two years ago.
