Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

Machado also posted a .265 BABIP last year while his career average is .301 and was worth at least 6 fWAR and 5.7 bWAR in three of the last four years. Happ needed a .362 BABIP this year just to have the line he did. He was in the .310’s in 2016 in AA as well as in AAA and the majors last year. I k...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Transactions That Don’t Matter

He would’ve been a nice SS/Utility option and that seems really cheap.

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

An interesting Machado factoid I saw today...... I think we can all agree Ian Happ's 2018 was not great and he was just an okay offensive player (some might even say not good), his wOBA was .329. That's better than 2 years Machado has posted in his career, including as recently as 2017, better than ...

It’s going to be remarkable to see how Reid loses in the 2nd round this year with this offense.

Re: Minor League Musings

https://twitter.com/joadell25/status/1052383609099886592 Jo Adell seems like an awesome kid and a great prospect. He could be ranked #1 overall in the minors after Vlad Jr., Tatis Jr. and Eloy all graduate to the big leagues next season. Do any of our players/prospects hold camps? I'm pretty sure B...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

Assuming we get Bryce I think there’s a decent chance we get an F the LT offseason. If that’s the case I’d like to see something like..... Non-Tenders: La Stella Russell Trades: - Almora, Adbert and Kintzler for Archie Bradley - Happ, Zack Short, prospect(s) and Chatwood to the Mariners for James Pa...

Re: Do you get your flu shot?

I’ve never gotten it. I always thought, stupidly I guess, that it was really only for children, older people, people with compromised health, etc. I also am just lazy about it, I turned 30 in summer and haven’t had a doctor visit/physical since HS sports and have been meaning to get in just to make ...

Also anyone know the date options need to be exercised or declined by? Free agency opens like the day after the World Series, doesn’t it? It has to be around then?

Thoughts on Almora (pollock replacement), Adbert and Kintzler for Archie Bradley? In the ballpark?

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

I view the Mariners as a Kintzler or Duensing dumping ground. They’re always open to trades. Pazos coming back would be interesting. Attaching Almora to one there makes sense as they would have a need for him.

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

Also, Bryce is getting way more than that. And Almora doesn't get you out from underneath Chatwood. And Brendan Little ain't getting a Will Smith type of return. I would’ve thought Darvish was gonna get $26M - $28M AAV, but the market indicated otherwise ($21M AAV). Those two aren't remotely the sa...

Re: Mediocre has-been pitcher really doesn't like Machado

the first baseman standing on top of the bag? Yes, that is dirty. His foot was taking up way too much of the bag like an idiot but Machado still had about 2/3s of the bag that was open to land his feet on, he also wasn’t running overly hard as it was a relatively routine play and he had about 3-4 s...

CPAP machines, at least for that one guy who pitched the other night. Said it added 10 MPH getting his sleep apnea under control.

Re: [Brainstorm] HR Derby Changes/Updates

We could tier it by position (idk exactly how you'd determine the cutoffs, maybe top ~6 in HRs at each position?) but you could only pick say 2 players from tier A for 2 positions of your choice, 3 from tier B for 3 positions of your choice then the rest of you lineup/positions needs to be on tier ...
