Re: ITT: Raisin & Tom/King Kong Obsess Over Shohei Ohtani

I’m completely fine with giving Darvish the 5/150 or 6/180 (or whatever it was) if it guarantees we get Otani

Re: Stocks

So a friend told me about this Robinhood app for making trades. Does anyone know anything about it? My brother uses it and doesn’t have many complaints. If you aren’t putting a lot of money in (under 20-30k) and don’t plan on day trading at all (or very little) it makes more sense than the larger c...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

Isn’t Maitan fat now? For a 17/18 year old he's certainly bigger and filled out but I wouldn't say he's fat. He's kinda built like Starlin in that he certainly looks like he could lose 10-15 lbs and isn't in the greatest shape/ripped but isn't overweight, imo, from a quick google image search (and ...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

The Cubs can choose to use their 2018-19 allotment on any of these players. They don't have to be limited to the $300k in 2016-17. Cool! I read it as they can dip into their 2018-19 pool money but that their restrictions would still be in place until July 2nd. But you're saying that with these spec...

Re: International shenanigans in Atlanta?

What the Braves did was really bad and they deserve this punishment, but they only broke "MLB Rules" right? How didn't the Cardinals get a harsher punishment if they broke actual federal laws and MLB Rules? Was it because what the Braves did was easier to track/systemic in the organization...

Re: Offseason Transactions

Bobby Wahl was released by the A’s, he’s put up some pretty big K numbers in the minors (tho SSS in some cases) he was up for 7 innings last year and his Fb averaged 95 and looks like a primarily FB/Slider pitcher with a occasional curve and changeup. As a minor league depth bullpen guy he’s worth l...

Re: Offseason Transactions

Phillies released Mark Appel today. In a parallel universe, Appel won Rookie of the Year and a Cy Yong for the Cubs while Kris Bryant got released from the minors after flaming out. Is his arm completely broken or what? If it’s not he’d be a nice reclamation try even though his numbers suck. I thin...

Re: College Football - Week 12 (Nov. 18)

Wisconsin just isn't very good, I really want to see them lose just because them getting in the playoffs is going to leave out a better team.

Law wrote this about Hellickson in his "FA Bargain" article, as a 1 year buy low guy for our 2nd or 3rd SP addition to get reunited with Hickey to try and re-find the changeup he intrigues me.... Hellickson lost his changeup in 2017, turning him from a league-average-or-so starter into a r...

MLB is Investigating Their Balls

After commissioner Rob Manfred spent the entire 2017 season denying the baseballs were “juiced,” Major League Baseball has appointed a committee to conduct a study to determine whether that’s actually the case. According to Kristie Ackert of the Daily News, Mets assistant general manager John Ricco...

Just spitballin here but, is there any chance the FO has any interest in Stanton? What kind of players would be involved if the Cubs took on the entire remaining salary? It seems they are saving up for Harper next year but Stanton would actually be cheaper (and older, I realize). Sign Cobb, Lackey ...
