Re: Regular Season Rumors

Why do we want a guy who already has a partially torn UCL like Otani did when he came over? Degrom and Syndergaard absolutely, but I'll pass on giving up assets for Lugo.

Re: The Cardinals

Not that I was particularly worried to begin with, but I feel safe in saying no FA of any real substance is going to be joining the Cardinals anytime soon unless they either overpay or their market is completely gone.

I'd like to see those peripherals at AA before getting too excited. A lot of our guys seem to succeed at A+ and fall off after promotion to Tennessee.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

There was a speculation piece written a couple days ago that the Orioles might make Bundy available in a trade. He's sporting a 3.81ERA and his peripherals are just so so, but I wonder how much all of that is dragged down by one horrific start where he went 0IP 5H 7ER 2BB 4HR. Since then he's put up...

Re: RIP Anthony Bourdain

At my age it's probably childish to call another man my hero, but that's what Anthony Bourdain was to me. The single most influential person in my life that wasn't family member or friend. His adventures created a spark that saved me from a really rough complacent unhappy time in my early 20s and ga...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

At this point in the draft, don’t expect a prep pick to be underslot, even if he’s picked much higher than normal he consensus rankings. Quite surprising to see them go with a “raw” prospect this high. Goes against their MO. Thus far this draft has Wilken trying to be the smartest guy in the room w...

Liberatore has to be the pick, IMO.


I agree, but I'm really hoping not because I want to draft him in my dynasty and I can't do that if he goes to that pitching wasteland.

My guess is Swaggerty, although I like Liberatore, Stewart, and Kelenic more.


I don't think the Mets have learned their lesson yet so I see them taking Liberatore. Time to run out and buy some arm insurance.

I was thinking about that and Flaherty's most recent start today. They're still going to struggle to score runs with any consistency, but the Cardinals are going to have a monster rotation in 2019 and going forward.

Tatis is now a top 5-10 prospect on just about every list and getting comps to Ma...
