Re: Jagoff About Willson Contreras Here, You Lazy Jerkoffs

Re: Jagoff About Willson Contreras Here, You Lazy Jerkoffs

Willson put up more WAR last year in only ~115 games than Yadi has put up in any of the last 4 seasons.

Also Yadi considering himself in the same class of Buster is laughable

Joel Sherman threw out 6/120 for Darvish with $30 mil the first 2 years, $20 mil the next 2 and $10 mil in the final 2 years with opt outs in years 2 and 4. Yes, please

Re: Bullpen Options

Marrow/Cishnek replace Davis/Rondon?. If they end up keeping Grimm & Montgomery this wasn't the pen overhaul I was expecting this offseason. The pen was mostly very good last year, it didn’t need an “overhaul.” Barring crazy injuries it’s going to be a top 3-5 pen in baseball. Morrow and Carl h...

Re: Bullpen Options

I don't get the negative sentiment. Last year was the first year since 2013 he had a xFIP/FIP under 4 and he’s 35. With all this talk about being extra careful with the LT it just seems like an unnecessary $3.5 million in aav to have on the books the next 2 years. I’d prefer to go the NRI route wit...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

It’s tough for me to see it being Jake because at worst he’s probably looking at 3/55 and probably will end up around 4/85. That’s still a lot especially since he hasn’t made a ton in his career. Moustakas was my guess because he actually isn’t very good and I could see him having only 1 year deals ...

I’m with Sofa on this. While the story doesn’t have the Wesinstein type awfulness it seems people are going out of their way to dismiss this or spin it because it’s “one of the good ones” and someone they like and if it was someone who wasn’t held in the same sentiment and more loathed the same defe...

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 ...

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.

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...

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.
