Re: White Sox sign Grandal 4/$73

It will be interesting to see if any teams actually trade good pieces for James McCann and his completely unsustainable .359babip last year. I can't imagine they'd use him as a backup.

I don't know why. I'm really not sure there's any production drop off from Contreras to Caratini/Chirinos.

Re: White Sox sign Grandal 4/$73

4/73 for a 31 year old catcher seems like quite a lot even if Grandal is very good. That's going to be a disaster in a year or two.

Re: 2020 roster

I don't think I've seen him mentioned, but shouldn't we be in on Robinson Chirinos if Contreras is dealt? He's 35, probably available on a 1 year deal and coming off a 113wRC+ 2.3fWAR season.

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

MLB.com lists the Brewers as a possible landing spot for Lindor and has Bryant at the top of a speculative list of stars that might get traded. They also include Trey Mancini on the list. This seems really legit Who could the Brewers possibly trade for Lindor? I can't imagine they're going to move ...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

Correct me if I"m wrong but Tsusugo is supposedly barely even passable at 1B right? Unless they're moving Rizzo I just don't see how it could work.

Re: 2020 roster

What am I missing. Hedges is strong defensively but can't hit. Margot is strong defensively but can't hit. Munoz is enticing, but I think there's a very high chance Lamet,who only really throws 2 pitches, winds up a reliever as well.

Re: Braves Sign Will Smith

Sadly, I never really figured we were a realistic option since I'm sure he wants to close. That Atlanta bullpen has gone from a real weakness to very solid since the trade deadline.

Re: 2020 roster

I don't think we'd net anywhere near Mejia/Urias/Munoz for Contreras solo. You're talking 2 guys who were top 50 prospects, top 25 in the case of Urias, to start 2019 and perhaps the single best relief prospect in the minors with Munoz. I kind of saw it as Urias+Mejia=Contreras and Munoz+Myers=Desc...

Re: 2020 roster

With no announcement on the Rizzo option yet, I wonder if they’re working on an extension. He has 2/29 left with the team options, something like 4/60 or 5/70 would make sense. With the power disappearing in the 2nd half and the ball likely going back to normal I'm not sure I want him 2 more years ...

I'm blown away that anybody wants to watch Daniel and/or Bray. Do yourself a favor and watch a different game, cause those two are not your answer.

Negative total yards going into half. I'm not sure a Bear team has ever done that.

Re: Bears @ Eagles, Sunday at noon on Fox

13 total yards with less than 5 to go in the half. What does this team have to do to get this QB benched and the coach fired?

I’m not going to defend Mitch but you act like there’s hidden QB talent on the sidelines or something and you know darn well there isn’t.


I'm willing to give anyone other than Trubisky a chance.

With Nagy’s play calling? How is a different QB going to help


So because the playcalling is bad we should stick with the completely inept QB?
