Re: NL Central: Reds, Pirates and others

I also learned today Sonny Gray had an elbow surgery in September. Maybe put the World Series parade on hold.

Re: Cubs to sign Jeremy Jeffress

Jeffress projects to a 3.54 ERA via ZiPS and a 4.24 ERA via Steamer. I'm not any more worried about his performance than I would be any other non-star reliever. That being said this is a slightly weird fit in that it basically eliminates the minor league optionability of the bullpen. We now have: K...

Re: Castellanos to Reds 4/64 With Opt Outs

I’m fine not bringing him back at 4/64 and opt outs. None of the 3 Fangraphs systems have him over 2 WAR for this year and he seems pretty capped at 3 wins as his ceiling. Sucks he’s staying in the division though. https://twitter.com/jonheyman/status/1221804098737053701?s=21 4/64 is fine but with ...

Re: Cubs to sign Jeremy Jeffress

He horsefeathering sucks and is washed up. Can’t imagine Strop took much more. Jeffress has also never been good outside of his time with the cheating Brewers. The Cubs know Strop better than anyone and he wanted to come back. That the Cubs didn’t sign him but did sign Jeffers probably says more ab...

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

how does Scooter keep Almora off the roster? Only way I can see is if they flex Nico to be the RH CF option, but that seems really unlikely compared to just letting Nico get more AAA playing time. Yeah I don’t see how Scooter knocks Almora off the roster unless they feel really good about Nico bein...

Re: RIP Kobe Bryant

TMZ is now saying one of his daughters was with him. horsefeathers. They broke the original story so it’s probably true. Rick Fox wasn’t per his daughter. Lots of reckless journalism speculating.

Hollandsworth put up almost 1 WAR in 60 games in 2004, I’d gladly take that out of Souza in a limited playing time/platoon role.
