Re: Feel good news thread

I spent February of 2019 in the ICU of 3 different hospitals after being given a 1% chance to make it following coding for 4 minutes, then ECMO and then sepsis. I spent March relearning to swallow, speak, sit up, raise my arms above my head and eventually stand with assistance. I spent April learnin...

Re: Covid rants

Due to the removal of elective surgeries, my sister's hospital is crying poor. So to reduce their expenses they have decided it's a good idea to remove everyone's annual raise, cancel all 401k matching and refuse all hazard pay. Needless to say, many are planning to relocate as soon. As feasible.

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

And that asking price is how you end up with nothing but a draft pick after wasting his value on two years of a very marginal baseball team. That's a possible outcome. It's also a way to not end up trading Kris Bryant for some other contender's spare pre-injured arms and A ballers because of some o...

Well yeah, that should be the case when entertaining the idea of trading a possible future HOFer in his prime

Tatis carries far more value than Bryant by himself. You're asking for ridiculous packages.

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

there's no way in hell dinelson lamet was a primary piece of interest in a KB deal Why not? There's a substantial amount of hype around him this year as a prime breakout candidate. Outside of Paddack and Tatis, who certainly wouldn't be available, he's the most valuable mlb trade piece they have. L...

I understand hurting your arm/shoulder while pitching, because it's not a natural movement, but damn Morrow gets hurt just existing.

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

Is playing a bunch of 26-28 YO All Stars and MVP candidates really not a way for the Cubs to capitalize on the value of their assets though? Like it seemed all off-season there was a gap between their value on the field v a trade and the winner wasn't their trade value. Since most are under control...

Re: Kipnis to Cubs

Also worth noting that last season from June 16 and on he batted: .270/.332/.493 with a low BABIP. There might still be something there. His LD, Flyball and hard contact rates all jumped over his career numbers during that period and GB rate dropped below his career numbers too. Also appears he too...

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

Worst case scenario for me. You don't maximize Bryant, Contreras, etc trade value , instead pretending that an 84 win team that has only gotten worse is a WS contender. Either add to the team or capitalize on your asset's value, don't run out mediocrity hoping that various things break right.

Re: Mookie

The last report I saw sounded like it could be Betts for Wil Myers, Chris Paddack/Cal Quantrill and Josh Naylor and that would be pretty meh deal for the Sox. There is an enormous gulf between Paddack and Quantrill in value. I very much doubt Paddack is available. Quantrill, Lucchesi, Strahm, etc s...

I still think they're in on Bryant. They added a 110 OPS+ bat in Ozuna, but lost a 132 in Donaldson. They need to do more.

In any trade with Arizona Corbin Carroll is a must have for me. Already a top 50 guy in my eyes and a good chance to work into the top 20.

Perhaps, but we also just saw a high upside young arm get moved for a DH with average at best power The Rays also got back a very underrated Randy Arozarena, who has ML ready CF potential to go with a well rounded high OBP bat in the minors. He came up and made some loud contact at the ML level to ...

I really don't think Canning is even remotely realistic as I'd say he's the odds on favorite to put up better numbers this year while being cheaper and with much more control.
