Re: The Cardinals

That's funny, but not any dumber/crazier than every trade proposed on this board that starts with "We can offer some package of Almora, Caratni and Maples for _________" You have an incredible gift for incorrect sanctimony, it is your superpower Seriously, we aren't putting those guys in ...

Re: It's Maddoning

Yes, he makes some serious head-scratching in-game decisions, but the Cubs also won a flipping WS just two years ago. Reminder: those head-scratching decisions you speak of nearly cost the Cubs the World Series in Game 7 (letting Chapman pitch the 9th in Game 6, pulling Hendricks and bringing Leste...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

Anyone up for taking as stab at ranking and tiering these players by trade value? Unavailable, unlikely to be dealt, or not going to get enough of a return to care about so I'm not including: Quintana, Hamels, Hendricks, Lester, Cishek, Chatwood, Strop, Rizzo, Baez, Bryant, Contreras, Heyward, Zobr...

I can't wait to get this idiot out of office. I'm actually okay with that reasoning for a veto.

Absolutely. It’s just laughable to me that they think his defense would be a positive in any way.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Saw some Cards fans griping on Twitter that an announcer said Javy has the edge in the MVP race because he plays 3 positions. They argued “so does Carpenter”. It amazes me that they think Carpenters defense at 1st, 2nd and 3rd is even in the same stratosphere as Javy at 2nd, 3rd, and SS.

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

Reds got a decent return from the Braves for Adam Duvall. Get Lucas Sims Matt Wisler and Preston Tucker In like 2013 when those guys were real prospects, maybe. Haven’t they all flamed out pretty much?? Maybe, but Duvall has been awful this year and doesn’t have a place in their OF. Taking a chance...

Re: The Cardinals

On a side note, not that it would ever happen. But if the Cards were willing to take Heyward back with his current contract if the Cubs took Dex back with his current contract, who says no first? Would anyone on this board make that trade? The Cubs say no first. And very quickly. Heyward might not ...
