Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Maybe give us a little something-something in a spoiler tag, you bastards. “Unfortunately, sometimes that puts a player or two that we have in a real tough circumstance. It’s my job to clarify: There’s nothing going on right now. We have more than enough ability to win the division, win the World S...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

You saw that idiot Charles the Cat trying to suggest this, didn't you? I did not. I think I saw Clapp retweet the trade during the game today. Just the first spot my mind went with the IFA money talk this week since it’s not like he was getting traded for much and I didn’t know where the Rangers we...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

We traded Michael Roth to the Rangers apparently. Do they have any IFA money to trade that could be coming back? Not that I’d assume it would be anything great but if they are in the penalty box who knows? You saw that idiot Charles the Cat trying to suggest this, didn't you? I did not. I think I s...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

guys no one is taking jason heyward off our hands. he is a millstone around our necks and the rest of the league knows it. We're gonna end up doing something like Russell, Heyward and some combo of Monty, Caritini, Alzolay, Bote, etc to SD for Hand and them paying some chunk of Heyward's contract a...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

Braves, Rangers, Giants or Padres would be my guesses as landing spots. Braves have done salary deals before and it’s his hometown, Rangers seem to always be looking to do something, Giants always need outfielders and his defense in that park would be good and they have money/lose some guys this yea...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

Oh for sure. His stats are very impressive and I like his swing actually. It's just you're not getting any value on defense from him so the bat has to be pretty special. It might be too soon but I brought up if there were any bat only college guys this year for a future Rizzo replacement (maybe tha...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

He is indeed considered a 1B/DH only type player. He played RF his freshman year and seemed okay to me on video, but reports say he was pretty bad out there. Some scouting reports don't like his swing and worry about how he'll perform with a wooden bat. I don't have a strong opinion on him, but his...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

I haven't followed draft prospects very closely this year. What's the deal with Seth Beer? Statistically, he looks so much better than the other college bats mocked in the late first, but he isn't a first round pick in most mock drafts. Is his defense that bad? First base/DH only? I like him a lot ...

Re: 2017-2018 NHL season

Vegas -160 favorite, I am a bit surprised. Vegas/books probably know they are going to take a lot of money on them so they adjusted it more for that than who they think is gonna win. I read the other day if Vegas wins, with the futures bet on them, sportbooks will take a loss on the year overall fo...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

I have a theory that writers inflate trade costs because they don't want to deal with angry responses from fans of the trading team and they don't want to hear breathless hypotheticals from people who think trading 3 average players for Mike Trout adds up. Also, the more blockbustery the trade the ...

https://twitter.com/fullcounttommy/status/999645124245229569?s=21 Our mainstream writers outside of pretty much just Sahadev have no horsefeathering idea how player valuation works.
