Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Seems weird to be upset about the most optimistic piece of Cubs/Harper information that's come out. Cubs not out, Harper wants to be here. If the Cubs know Harper wants to be here, wouldn't it be smart to put out what they've been putting out for negotiation purposes? Didn't we decide that Loxas wa...

Re: Cutch is not a Cub

Somewhat surprisingly, it likely isn't (according to FG). In terms of projected value or their projection for contract for him? How much they claim he was worth $$$$-wise the last couple of seasons. Got it, good for him. He seems like a great guy. I just would’ve guessed he’d win up at 2 years and ...

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?

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...
