Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

feel like Trea Turner would make a lot of sense for the Cubs - excellent contact, speed, and creates a dynamic up the middle defense with him and Javy. This would at least be interesting as a type of challenge trade. Turner at 2B putting up a .350 wOBA and above average defense is about a 4.5 win p...

Re: 2020 roster

IMO the Contreras trade is more about how solid Vic is and the prospect of getting some ML ready young pitching than it is about any deficiency of Willson's. Here are the Steamer projected WAR/450 values for each guy assuming neutral defense: Willson - 2.6 Vic - 2.0 Castro - 1.7 Because catchers ha...

Re: 2020 roster

I’m pretty confident they won’t move him unless it’s for a package that’s pretty good. that's awful kind . There’s also the whole game calling, framing, defense thing. Maybe they just don’t like what Willy does there and don’t want it anymore and even for as good as the offense is they feel he’s gi...

Re: 2020 roster

you know what our offense has gotten to be just too good, let's immediately correct that by getting rid of the guy leading his position in wOBA the last 3 years

Re: 2020 roster

yeah a lower total because Contreras hit the DL and we relied on bad catchers we assumed would easily replace his production but let's fix a hard cap on what we'll get at the catcher position by starting Jason Castro instead of a 27yo allstar who makes $4m and was our 3rd best bat , comfortable that...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Richard Jewell looks interesting. It's different right off the bat with their non-pretty male lead in a drama, didn't even know that was allowed this is a good point, especially in contrast to some of the other December releases like Uncut Gems and The Irishman https://media.giphy.com/media/DV8gs5t...
