Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

It makes perfect sense for a major market team to give him a 6 or 7 year offer. It keeps the AAV down, for LT purposes and you can litter it with opt outs, to where he may take another shot at FA anyway. And the back end of the deal will happen during the next CBA, which will likely see a dramatic ...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

They’re “only” 4 losses off the most losses and 2 off of being inside the top 4-5 most losses. Let’s settle down here a bit guys. They are 7 games back in the L column of the playoffs, that isn’t gonna happen. While exciting and young this roster has potential to only win 12ish more games the rest o...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

5/80-90 would be amazing if the Yankees think that's where his market is at right now (not where they would go to). I'd do 4/90 with opt outs in the first 2 years and call it a day.

Re: McCutchen to the Giants

They didn't have much of a choice, but the Giants are really leaning into the path the Tigers went down a few years back. Yeah don't blame them for trying to keep the window open (I would've gone the blow up route) but if enough things fall right that team can compete for the division or a WC. A li...

Re: 2017-18 NFL Playoffs

Jacksonville has a shot. Not sure why they are +9 I’m actually surprised that’s not double digits. Pats were -13.5 vs the Titans. I do agree there’s a scenario with the Jags pass rush/defense and running game that they keep it close or even win but that’s a narrow margin. I think the Pats by double...

The punter is typically the backup/emergency FG kicker so I’d assume most FG kickers are the backup/emergency punters.

Re: Bullpen Options

With Reed gone there's really nobody left I'd feel comfortable with committing multiple years and decent AAV to in the relief market. But Oh on a 1 year deal intrigues me a bit as a last bullpen piece. I'd be fine trying him as the nominal closer to start the year if they feel he looks like he's bac...

I wonder if they promised him the closer role and go him a little cheaper and he probably wasn’t interested/wanted more money to come here (or to another team) who couldn’t guarantee that I'm more surprised the Cardinals didn't make that happen.

Re: Offseason Transactions

Given that the twins are a team that’s been mentioned in relation to Darvish all offseason, does this do anything to decrease their likelihood of signing him? $8.5 million a year isn’t a small amount for teamlike the twins.

Yeah 6/130-150 with an opt out in 2 of the first 3 years and front load it a bit.

Seeing some things on MLBN talking about the LT. I knew it was bad but the visualization of them showing breakdowns made me realize how bad/restrictive these new penalties are. I can’t believe this was passed and the players union and/or big market teams stood for it. Hopefully it’s an unintended co...
