Re: Trout signs massive extension (12/$430)

They should, idk if they will. He’s not making a ton more when he hits FA at 30 in all likelihood and can lock in a solid amount and take any risk out of the equation. there’s been some quiet buzz that he’s upset about the russell stuff and we know he’s upset about the way the front office abused t...

Re: Trout signs massive extension (12/$430)

What would you project him to get, either as an extension pre-FA (3 years left including this year) or as a 30 year old FA? Do I have to acknowledge and play along with, therefore enabling, the owners’ collusion or can I go with what he should be worth? Bryant’s career pre-2018 was basically a top ...

5/100 (2 FA years bought out). He’ll be a FA at age 30 or 31.

Re: Trout signs massive extension (12/$430)

If Kris Bryant gets back to being Kris Bryant, he should be laughing at a $200 million dollar deal. This is especially the case given the nonsense lies about why they didn’t spend What would you project him to get, either as an extension pre-FA (3 years left including this year) or as a 30 year old...

Re: Trout signs massive extension (12/$430)

I still think he made up his mind he wouldn't extend back during the service time gaming. He seems like the type to hold that grudge. We'll see. I bet they've only offered him roughly the Rizzo extension x~20%. Unless he's really holding a grudge and back to his normal self this year I'd be he's ge...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Is there even any players that could have been realistically extended this offseason? (outside someone taking an insanely team friendly deal) I think priority 1 should be Bryant, and I think it will happen, but you have to prove his shoulder isn't destroyed. Yeah, going through the list I don't see...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Hot take: Clinton-Dix is a high quality DB whose reputation took a hit thanks to the inflated passing numbers of the day. I think he’s better than the numbers. The Packers lack of a pass rush lately I think makes the secondary guys grade out and look worse. They’ve had multiple guys leave from the ...

Re: Will the 2019 Cubs finish above .500?

I’ll say somewhere between 88 (if the division really turns out to be a death march and everyone wins over 80 games, unlikely but who knows) and 95 (team or two in division underperforms and we have more things go right than wrong).

Re: 2019 Spring Training Thread

This is pure laziness in asking this here, but what's the current situation on Morrow? I think they said he’s roughly 1-2 weeks behind most guys/where he should be in a normal ST. I believe he’s playing catch and long toss but has yet to throw off a mound. They are, understandably, not pushing anyt...

This makes me sad. At his peak he was a legit contender for best pitcher in MLB.

I mean, unless he’s not making the OD roster why not give him the token star? They’re in an admitted rebuild.

Re: 2019 Spring Training Thread

This is pretty fortunate timing for where we are on the calendar. Even if this injury keeps him out a month from when it occurred, that's only 10 games. And with all the off days the first few weeks of the season we can lean on Cishek et al without actually working them all that hard I don’t think ...

Re: 2019 Spring Training Thread

Not overly surprising, but that means Q will be the 4/5 starter in the rotation the first time through. Wouldn’t be surprised if Darvish/Hamels are 2/3 in some order to get a start in Texas as a bit of a reunion thing. Seems like something Joe would do. https://twitter.com/mlbbrucelevine/status/1105...
