Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Ok, so my source on this is sketchy, I admit...but apparently there are people that datamine the Funko servers to find out what Pop's are being planned and they're supposedly going to be releasing a bunch of MLB ones, including Rizzo, if that trips anybody's trigger....

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I remember thinking Mike Harkey was going to be awesome and then a couple years later Gary Scott was finally the 3rd baseman of the future Kevin Orie Though what's funny is that after all those years of "Every 3B has sucked since Santo" narrative, we've had amazing runs with Aramis and no...

Re: Which Cubs jersey(s) would you buy

I bought one of the gold championship Rizzo's, already had a Rizzo jersey tee. If I had to pick a second, it would probably be Bryant. The Rizzo jersey is the only jersey I've ever bought. They wife has a Soriano in the closet. She wants a Baez jersey now.

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

Question: Why did the brewers prioritize spending big on Cain when they already had Yelich, Santana & Braun? Given the state of their rotation, shouldn't they have allocated those funds towards pitching? I think they idea was (and still may be) to trade Santana for a pitcher given the OF surplu...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

When he ends up signing with the Cubs for like 4/90, Brewers fans are going to claim Stearns had no interest but instead did a masterful job of forcing Theo to overpay.

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

At this point, no one is bidding anything higher. I don't see anyone able to make an offer of more years or dollars. Holding out isn't working, or he is just the most indecisive guy ever. https://78.media.tumblr.com/1e9ba2dc6626f2f81de3e3114bef0d51/tumblr_oytjl9BJ7K1qafbqjo2_540.gif https://78.media...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

So if we offer him 5 years then he will probably come here, but if we stand firm at 4 years the Dodgers will probably find a way to make it happen? My theory is that Theo was doing his due diligence but was never really serious about landing Yu until this market deep freeze started in December and ...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Dodger's current CBT payroll is 180 million. Leaving their desired 10 million cushion leaves them with 7 million to put towards Yu. They are going to need to dump 2 of the 3 of Ryu, Forsythe, and Grandal to get close to Yu money and leaving a 10 million cushion. I don't see anyone taking Ryu at tha...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

According to Morosi, the Dodgers are trying to keep 10 million in payroll free to make room for possible deadline deals this upcoming season. He also puts more to the rumor that the Cubs aren't willing to go more than 4 years. If he isn't going to get 5 or 6 years, Yu probably wants to go back to LA...

With Rivera and Halladay being the only new candidates that will enter the HoF discussion next year, I think E Martinez and Mussina make it in 2019. Then I’m guessing Bonds and Clemons finally make it in with Jeter in 2020. i will definitely take that bet, and say writers won't let juicers taint th...

I am so sure GM's go around jacking up prices to mess with other teams. Uh Yeah.

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

I feel like we will know something on Darvish soon. I wonder if anyone will actually sign Cobb or Jake immediately after. It really feels like there is no market for a lot of players. I don't think Darvish signing will open any floodgates.

I’d still like to bring in Reed. There was some discussion that it was viewed that Morrow set the market for non Closers. If there’s a way to bring in Addison Reed for less than Morrow, that’s a nice security blanket in case Morrow has any issues/setbacks. That is my biggest off-season fear. Morrow...
