He is going to get broken in that ballpark with the White Sox defense behind him.

He always seems to give us problems so glad we don’t need to face him 3-6 times a year now.

If it’s just a back up catcher, who cares. Vic horsefeathering sucks, it could be an upgrade.

Re: NFL Week 14

Vikings haven’t won against a winning team all year. 2 of their last 3 games are against winning teams. The other is in Detroit, which always makes for a tough road trip (DET has 4 home losses but 3 were against playoff-bound teams). Dare I say the Vikings might lose out? How soon can they get out ...

Re: Winter Meetings

What the hell are the Mets doing??? Just keep Syndergaard and sign Grandal/Ramos, you’re giving up a 3-5+ win pitcher who’s controlled for a catcher who’s as expensive and maybe ~1.5 wins better than the FA options. You’re getting worse (or staying as good) and more expensive since I’d assume they’l...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Didn’t almost all these reporters say/walk back recently they don’t know what’s true and what we are up to including that early offseason leak of no money? So we have no idea what the basis for “nothing’s changed” means. Also we’re to believe these guys at their words and they totally have sources w...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

DiCaro and Bernstein are reputable, but Bryce signing here would really shock a whole bunch of people. I think the single piece of information I'm still ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I've always wondered how much a guy like Bryce Harper brings to a team in terms of additional revenue and how they go about trying to factor that in. I’m sure it’s all in Boras’s 1,000 page handbook. But yeah he has to bring in a good amount of ancillary revenue, like he’s one of the ~5 MLB players...

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

yeah darvish is winning cy young this year. That’s not the most ridiculous proposition in the world. IF he’s healthy enough to pitch 180+ innings and IF he performs just a bit better than his career averages, he’ll be a top 10 Cy Young candidate. It’s not real likely, but it’s better than a lottery...

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

I don't think the return will be interesting enough for a 38 year old that will need to work a catchers schedule (at most) to be effective. Unless they are at a a charging players for the vending machine level of having no money. I bet you could get a Monty type guy for him, for what Monty was at t...

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

The idea of trading Zobrist isn’t that crazy to me in the right sequence of move, those names mentioned as replacements are horsefeathering gross though. Like trading him gets a decent prospect, clears his money and let’s us add a good RP, Lowrie and Brantley I’m in for that sequence of moves.
