Re: 2018-19 Offseason Rumors

horsefeathering Hendry/Tribune era offseason moves. Miss on Bryce and sign some washed up guy like Tulo https://twitter.com/jonheyman/status/1073765267501662208?s=21 Tulo costs the league minimum and lets us fire Russell into the sun. He would be a phenomenal signing. Other than being able to get r...

Re: Daniel Descalso

He was okay last year, can take a walk and his statcast/batted ball data looks good. He makes us better if he’s just in the Tommy role and like I mentioned adding him could be the trigger to moving Happ one Zobrist to clear money.

Seems like a signing we make with a trade of Happ or Zobrist being sent out soon after

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

if i was the white sox i would go $40m the first two years followed by an opt-out and a more reasonable ($30m or whatever) AAV after that. They convince Harper to come based on the early dollar signs with the idea being that if the team isnt competitive in that 2-year window he can just hit FA as a...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Though it’s entirely possibly that the White Sox are the front runners, it’s more likely that Scott Boras is using them to light a fire under the usual big spenders. I can't imagine a big spending GM/owner getting all hot and bothered about missing out on a free agent to the White Sox. This isn't S...

Re: Cubs coaching staff 2019

I have MLBN on quite a bit in the background during the day while I work. DeDosa is on a lot. I don’t know why he has a perception around him of being a coaching candidate in waiting. He says the dumbest horsefeathers. Like he seems like he’d get along with guys fine and seems like a fun and normal ...

Re: SEAL BOY OUT

He’s 26, but had some good K numbers in AA/AAA last year (first time in AAA). Seems to be a little wild though. Throw him in the Iowa shuttle bin I guess.

Re: The Business of Baseball (AKA never side with management)

And horsefeathers that idea of a cap. That's only good for owners. Yeah, idk how you see the owners using the LT as a soft cap and think a hard cap will help teams spend more. If anything the players will get less because there would a finite amount of dollars to spread around with a cap. There jus...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

If the White Sox are actually serious about signing Harper, is anyone at all concerned about them blowing past whatever largest offer the Cubs end up with, considering their irrational and petty hatred of the Cubs organization? If they get him I'm 99% sure it's going to be because they offered him ...

Ignoring the White Sox part, the info about being creative is interesting. Since we likely have to in the first year or two.

https://twitter.com/BNightengale/status/1073236792659271680 They didn’t have room in their budget to sign free agent outfielder Billy Hamilton to a one-year, $5 million contract, so how are they going to suddenly find room for a player making at least $35 million a year? And the last the Cubs check...

Re: Winter Meetings

Familia back to Mets 3/30, Kelly to Dodgers 3/25. Let the RP run begin. Not interested in either of these guys at all, Familia has a DV record and Kelly is just right handed Justin Wilson. So glad they’re off the board and maybe takes 2 teams out of the market for the better RPs that we might be tal...

Re: Highest Upside Cubs Prospects

I don't have a deep knowledge of the system but know the guys who are already known or on radars so with that I'd go.... For pitcher I'd say Marquez. A lefty that is hitting triple digits and shown an ability to start so far and seems to have good command at only 19, that's pretty rare. The upside i...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Can't imagine their fnancial situation is much more accommodating than the Cubs. Yeah, I don’t get this. i think it probably has to do with their presumably having more tradeable money than we do. Like we would have to work pretty hard to move enough money (heyward, chatwood etc) while they can sur...
