Re: The Cardinals

Hicks ranks 184th amongst qualified relief pitchers (there’s 187 qualified ones) in K/9, how is that possible?????????

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

So you can only be considered part of a young core if you’re an extension candidate? They have Russell through like 2022, that’s plenty of time to be part of a core. It’s not like he’s a free agent in a year. And yeah I’d hope the best player in the NL and the guy who’s going to be a 4-5 WAR catche...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Russell is 7 months younger and has put up more WAR than Turner in their careers That's fine. I don't view Russell as a part of the young core for the Cubs that won't be moved. I do think Turner is viewed as a part of the young core for the Nationals. I'm not talking about their talent. Russell has...

These playoffs have sucked. Seems like a ton of blowouts and even the close games are kinda just overall horsefeathers basketball down to the final plays.

Re: Addison Russell

He’s up to a .273/.358/.386 (.744 OPS). If he even starts hitting for average power......



Also his OBP is only 5th best on the team and you’d assume Rizzo ends up the year ahead of him. Crazy to think this offense has another level coming.

Seriously. Could be historically bad.

They should go get Machado like now, which I’m kinda fine with them depleting their system even further to do it since I don’t see him signing there.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Why in the world would we trade for a starter. What a dumb horsefeathering idea with no common sense thought.

DeJong to the DL with a broken left hand after getting hit by a pitch last night. He’s the only SS on their 40-man so I guess the Gyorko SS experiment will be back.

If the Bulls are confident in Porter's health and worry about him not making it to 7, swapping 4 and 7 seems possible. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2776700-2018-nba-draft-rumors-grizzlies-open-to-trading-no-4-overall-pick I don't know enough about the NBA draft pick values to know what they ...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

Any 20-40 sleepers you guys like? Hate the guy's guts, but I actually think Grayson Allen could be a decent pick at 22. He's a guy that should be able to crack a rotation as a rookie, and can shoot the ball or do some slashing. May be a similar player to what the Bulls were hoping McDermott would b...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

Two hot takes: - I think the Cubs’ pitching development issues are mostly that they have not prioritized pitching like they have hitting. They only just used a first on one for the first time last year and have yet to pay big for an IFA arm (Tdeng is their high IIRC). - All this talk about next gen...

yeah it's Ugly Jose, i knew he was *good* but seeing his production for like the last year + completely knocked my socks off

at AA, he hit 3 HR in 113 G
Lindor hit 7 in 109 G

they've each hit 36 in the last year

Reward the teams that tried but barely missed the playoffs. Three teams with the best records (but missed the playoffs) get highest chance for #1 pick, but draft is still in reverse order of finish.

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

I'd say that it promotes tanking since now the worst 3 teams all have the same chances of getting the #1 pick, so it makes tanking "easier". Stop rewarding bad teams with high picks and tanking goes away “Tanking” might go away but there’s always going to be horsefeathers teams in the NBA...
