Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

You donating the NSBB domain squatting profits to the Ricketts to make such moves possible, Tim? The 2018 salary wouldn't be that bad, tbh. I'm pretty sure that's under the luxury tax (but without room for midseason moves). It's the 2019 re-signing Machado and also adding Harper that just can't hap...

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

Maybe if we give Angelos and super secret pinky swear that we won’t trade Machado to the Yankees we could get him for LaStella

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

What an awfully run organization, no wonder teams don’t like dealing with them. Just trade him to Yankees if that’s your fear, you aren’t competing this year and weaken their system.

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

I really have no interest in Salazar, the cost and being worthy of a Mets rotation spot with his health just too much downside. I really would like Avila back, even at a little more than a traditional backup.

Re: The Alex Cobb Thread

Its Gordo, but he says in his latest article that Cobb's asking price is "about 20 mill per" and that he's heard the Cubs have cooled on him. Would explain why we hear rumblings of the Cubs active in the trade market for a starter For sure $20 aav +/- for him seems too high unless it’s on...

Re: Bullpen Options

Twins sign Rodney. Don’t see where Davis goes and gets big years/money at this point. Morrow’s deal +$15ish more million seems far more likely. There just aren't enough Mariano Rivera/Trevor Hoffman type closers in baseball these days where you can just pencil in 40 saves for the next 4-10 years, s...

I haven't been paying attention. That douchebag Loria sold the Marlins? Who owns it now and in what way are they making a poitive stamp on the Marlins fanbase by selling off all the decent players? Jeter and some private investors bought them. Jeter is a minority owner but is the face of it/running...

Re: Cubs Sign Reliever Steve Cishek

In what realistic scenario does Heyward opt out? Even with a great rebound year, would he want to leave the team he has won a World Series with (maybe even a second one), and how much more money could he realistically sign for than what he is already getting with the Cubs that might not even be a p...

Re: Cubs Sign Reliever Steve Cishek

Yeah there's no real way to make Darvish and Harper work unless we're cool with all the penalties that come from being 40+ million over the cap or Heyward rebounds enough to opt out. Let's say Chili Davis pixie dust magically turns Heyward into a .290/.390/.500 guy next year (lmao) with still beyon...

Re: Cubs Sign Reliever Steve Cishek

Why? What’s the thinking here? We could add Darvish with staying under the LT this year. In 2020 they will have a lot of commitments that would make it very difficult to fit Harper, Darvish and everybody else already here, into a budget. Maybe, but they also lose Zobrist and possibly Morrow's money...

Re: Cubs Sign Reliever Steve Cishek

I assume this is the last significant bullpen move, which I’m fine with as long as we don’t cheap out now on the last starter spot. Just swallow the pill and sign Cobb or Darvish There is ZERO chance of signing Darvish. If you want Harper later, you can't have Darvish now. Why? What’s the thinking ...

Re: Christian Yelich

If they trade Yelich, it will be a baseball trade. They've cleared salary, and he's cheap, so the only reason to trade is to accumulate GOOD prospects plural, not financial. The Cubs farm is empty, so I don't think they can be players. Unless Miami REALLY likes Almora and Happ a lot more than I exp...

He's better than I thought (I thought he was more of a Kintzler low K/velo and high GB/BABIP suppression artist), I guess saying Strop/Edwards are easily better is wrong (more upside/dominance yes). Either way I like how the bullpen has ...

4th or 5th?

Morrow, Strop and Carl are all easily better. Monty may even rank ahead of him for me/some and if Wilson decides not to be a bum he could be better.
