Re: Guess what an idiot with a gun did this time

This is all so dumb. I live in Wisconsin and my local reps will be hearing from me on this (yeah I know it won’t do much). I have probably a dozen family members or friends that are teachers in the state and this topic has come up in the past with them and absolutely non of them want to be armed in ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Willy is the man, he’s definitely going to kicked out of a game Joe West is umping. I think the mound visit limit is a really dumb idea.

Re: JD Martinez to Red Sox 5/110

Not that I think they are a real threat for Bryce, however they are a big market with wild card ownership, but where does this put the Sox in regards to the LT for not only this year but also next year? They have to be pushing close this year and have to be nearly at it going in to next offseason wi...

Re: RE: Re: JD Martinez to Red Sox 5/110

I think it’s a fine deal for both sides. I do wonder how his power will play in Fenway though as I believe a lot of his power is to CF and Right-Center and those are the deepest parts of Fenway (and deeper in general compared to other fields iirc). He carries a 1.17 OPS in 400 oppo batted balls. I ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I know generally speaking batting order doesn't overly matter... but if we are going to assume Schwarber/Bryant/Rizzo top 3 most of the time vs RHP do you guys think the pitcher batting 8th will get any thought to get that "extra leadoff guy" in front of those 3? We completely went away f...

Damn, I would’ve loved him for this deal. Start LaStella in AAA and Dyson starts most games against RHP and is a late inning defensive specialist in others.

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

Matt Carpenter is already missing some ST time with back tightness, he seems to be on the verge of falling apart. He missed time the last two years with back, oblique and shoulder issues (I believe he had a cortisone shot last year in his shoulder and he really can't throw much anymore). Between age...

Re: Offseason Transactions

At the beginning of the off season, I truly thought we'd be trading Happ or Addy, to get our TOR starter, and signing Cobb to be our back end guy. I'll gladly take Yu, Chatwood, and not touching our position player core, over the other option. Can't believe we've not made a single trade. And got Yu...

Re: Offseason Transactions

At this point, I think there's a decent chance one of Cobb or Lynn may wind up settling for less than we gave Chatwood. Do have to wonder if maybe we jumped on Chatwood a bit early. Revisionist obviously, but Cobb at 4/52 versus Chatwood at 3/38? I can see Chatwood winding up better, but I liked Co...

Re: Offseason Transactions

With how many pitchers are still available I’m not surprised Odorizzi didn’t go for a ton, especially the year he is coming off of and costing $6 million this year and probably 9-10 next year. That being said I’m surprised they decided to sell low unless they think he’s going to stay replacement lev...

Re: Hosmer to the Padres - 8 Years $144M

Signing some combination of Lomo/Lind/Carter/Bautista for a 1B platoon probably gets you as much, if not more, in season value for 1/10 the overall price and gives you much more flexibility. This is dumb anyway you look at it. Also saw this guy on twitter last night and thought these were good point...

Re: Offseason Transactions

This is their rebuild version of signing Pujols/Fielder instead of trading for a Rizzo and/or waiting out their prospect development to spend the FA money. So dumb. Lots of money for grit and leadership

Re: Offseason Transactions

Feel like 1 of Jake/Lynn/Cobb is going to have to settle for a 1 year deal (or at least in their best long term interest) and 1 is gonna have a hard team beating Chatwood in guaranteed money.
