Re: The Spring Training Thread

Chatwood, Lester, Hendricks, Yu, and Q is the rotation order when the big boys start, starting this Monday. FWIW.

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

Good (bad) loss? I was actually hoping they'd win that game against Philly. I'm happy they lost, but it was in agonizing fashion. Geez, Embiid, Simmons and maybe Saric is such a great group of young players to build around. They're gonna be really good for a long time with the standard caveat that ...

Re: Offseason Transactions

I’m not a big fan. He’s only stayed healthy once and is expensive in LT regards. If the defensive metrics don’t go crazy I wouldn’t be surprised if Almora/Happ platoon out WARs him this year.

Re: The Spring Training Thread

Good point and that’s a major concern. Seems to be a likely reason he can’t consistently hit balls hard/for power. That ankle roll is probably sapping a lot of his power/balance

Re: The Spring Training Thread

Looks the same to me +/- maybe a little more lift/higher finish. Maybe when you slow video down of every guys swing maybe they all mostly have that load back with their hands at the start of their swing like the video shows but that seems problematic. https://twitter.com/sahadevsharma/status/9667699...

Re: Offseason Transactions

Lol that bozo HighHeat just said the Brewers FO become aware of him and to protect his source he’s deleting his twitter account. This is after saying Cobb signing was down to 20% and that Brewers fans should be prepared to be disappointed with signings (guessing he meant guys going elsewhere) in the...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

The mound visit rule may not work, but the number of visits was ridiculous during the last postseason They may have been but overall they don’t seem to be a problem nor will it be a huge time saver. We’re talking 5-10 min a game maybe? Plus it’s the postseason/WS I’m willing to let it slide that gu...

Willy is the man, he’s definitely going to kicked out of a game Joe West is umping.

Yeah it’s good to hear he’s for some of that stuff and it’s at least a step forward (hopefully) but the arming school teachers or adding armed guards is so unbelievably dumb and has so many potential terrible residual outcomes by adding more guns to schools. Also for a second let’s let’s act like th...

Re: Offseason Transactions

That High Heat guy is still sticking to his guns that Cobb will be a Brewer and thinks it’s 80% chance it’s by Monday (whatever that means). He also makes it sound like other than a trade or release of like Aguilar or some other ancillary piece they are pretty much done until the deadline. If that’s...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Buffalo is evidently talking about trading up. They've got 21, 22, 53, and 55. Not that the trade value chart is a great example, but pick 8 is 1400. 21 and 22 are 800 and 780. 53 and 55 are 370 and 350. Their 3rd is pick 96 and is valued at 116. Our 2 4ths are at 96 and 72 points. To match value, ...
