Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Cots projects them at 7.1 million over the luxury tax for '18, they've got a boatload of money coming off the books though. They've also got 93.7 million in actual payroll for next year in 3 players (Scherzer, Strasburg, Zimmerman) edited to say that by actual I mean in terms of that years payroll,...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

Is there any real reason to think an off-season won't clear this up? As long as he doesn’t end up with a surgery, which they have said he doesn’t/won’t need (but Dr Nick and the medical staff really can’t be trusted so who knows) I’m assuming rest and maybe a tweak in his strength/training program ...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

the injury is worrying but i'm not going to just assume this will be some huge deal going forward. i expect him to have an obp-heavy .900+ ops next season and be one of the better players in the league. Yeah, he might get there differently than we want/expect but I still think he’s a ~.900 OPS play...

Holy horsefeathers Joe, you don't always "need to have your players backs" or whatever he thinks he's doing. How can he be so obtuse to not, at the bare minimum, go with some PR 101 line that Theo or Ricketts almost surely gave him along the lines of "it's a serious allegation and the...

Re: NFL Week 3

Some people are putting waaayy too much stock into only three games. Heck, a bunch of these guys hardly played during preseason. The good teams will rise, and there will be plenty of good teams. Yes teams will rise from the pile of crap to be less piles of crap. I will say the Rams are legit good, ...

Lots of adversity - yes. Most improbable in the history of sports. Not so certain. I would venture to say there were lots of experts, fans, etc. that expected him to win another tournament.

The love fest was a bit much. Why can't we give negative hearts? “Most improbable comeback in the history of sports.” That was said multiple times in the telecast. C’mon. He’s a great player that had to overcome a lot of adversity (some self induced). And it’s very good for golf ratings and anyone ...

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

I know there have been questions about Machado's defense at SS and his insistence on playing there. But how does Harper rate defensively? This year it looks like he's given away a huge chunk of his offensive value on defense. He's been worth negative dWAR on B-R in 4 of his 7 years, with one year a...

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

So Russell is getting non tendered. Sure, the Cubs will attempt to move him. But, it would have been a limited market before this stuff. Non-existent market now, some team will scavenge around and sign him late in the off season most likely, unfortunately might even get a bargain, based on what his...

I hope the Cubs suspend him without pay and get him some help. Kicking him to the curb only eliminates the symptom. They need to try to cure the problem. I'm not sure that they can suspend him without pay if he hasn't been actually charged with a crime. Yeah that might be a little hard to do, putti...
