Re: Mediocre has-been pitcher really doesn't like Machado

the first baseman standing on top of the bag? Yes, that is dirty. His foot was taking up way too much of the bag like an idiot but Machado still had about 2/3s of the bag that was open to land his feet on, he also wasn’t running overly hard as it was a relatively routine play and he had about 3-4 s...

CPAP machines, at least for that one guy who pitched the other night. Said it added 10 MPH getting his sleep apnea under control.

This seems like it could turn in to a big thing and needs its own thread. Someone feel free to change the title.

Re: [Brainstorm] HR Derby Changes/Updates

We could tier it by position (idk exactly how you'd determine the cutoffs, maybe top ~6 in HRs at each position?) but you could only pick say 2 players from tier A for 2 positions of your choice, 3 from tier B for 3 positions of your choice then the rest of you lineup/positions needs to be on tier ...

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

I don’t know if this is actually legal or how it would be accounted for by MLB (maybe they wouldn’t view it as a new deal but a continuation of his current deal and the current LT hit applies for the next 2 years and only the third year would be accounted as a new deal when that comes?) but if this ...

You can't pass up trading almost your whole MLB outfield for a guy who pitched 90 total innings this year in MiLB (all in AA) and missed time with a forearm injury when the opportunity presents itself.

Re: Realistic Trade Targets

yes trading 75 percent of our outfield for a 17 year old and an albeit very good guy in AA would be bad 75%? McKenzie’s probably ML ready late 2019 or early 2020 if that helps he's a young rail thin pitcher (he's thinner than CARL EDWARDS JR unbelievably) and we'd be running out an OF of Heyward (m...

Re: [Brainstorm] HR Derby Changes/Updates

If we’re just wanting to mix things up, how about scrapping the “tiers” of players and changing it so everyone has to have a complete “team” of fielders? Three outfielders plus the five infielders and a DH. Then, when you make a transaction, it has to be for the same position. If Anthony Rizzo gets...

Re: Realistic Trade Targets

Where would he play? He’s atrocious on defense. I suppose we could trade for him and dump him in the middle of Lake Michigan for knocking Braun’s ball over the wall. Harper - Heyward/Someone - Castellanos Should add that Castellanos is mostly about adding a RH bat coming off a ~.350 wOBA over the p...
