Re: The Manny Machado Thread

Done deal. Judging by the reaction, doesn’t seem like it’s a really severe package that LA had to give up? Russell, Happ, Schwarber, and Monty. LOL. The writers in this industry are so horsefeathering bad haha, exactly what i was thinking. is russell along better than the package they got? probably...

What, exactly, has been Leonard's problem? Him sitting out/protesting playing/pouting has been talked about at length but wasn't clear on the background.

Luke Reynolds got promoted to Eugene and went 2 for 4 with a double (and a K). That's about it for interesting things yesterday. He’s older but put up video game numbers last year. I’m intrigued by him and will be interesting how fast they push him based on age. He slashed like .390/550/.700 with 1...

What does a season ending arm injury have to do with Alzolay? The Cubs posted at least a couple statements about Alzaloy's performance in Iowa, you should check them out. For him being in Iowa, I was jacked he was there and his good stuff was dominating. Not giving guys like Underwood and Clifton c...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

fWAR. By bWAR, Machado has three seasons better than Seager’s rookie season. This year, however, Machado’s not on pace for a better season than Seager’s rookie season primarily due to how poorly his defense grades out at SS. Is there some consensus out there that fWAR is better than bWAR? I go to B...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

I know it doesn’t really work that way most of the time, but I hope the Dodgers adding Manny ups the level of trade targets for us with the bullpen add(s) or even starter (DeGrom) since I believe Theo views the Dodgers as our main competition.

Oh, ya gotta love Brailyn Marquez single-handedly saving the Cubs organization's pitching prospect list after losing Alzolay to injury, De La Cruz to suspension and Albertos to Steve Blass disease. 5 starts, 1 ER in each of them.

Surely this guy I've never heard of has similar trade value to Russell + Happ + + ?

We should make sure we don’t want to trade Russell and Happ +++ for this Phillies pitcher if he’s that good.
