Re: 2018 Draft Thread

Law ranked Hankins at 33, but had him ranked #1 overall before the injury scare...... 33. Ethan Hankins, RHP, Forsyth Central High School, Cumming, Georgia. Hankins was No. 1 on my list before his shoulder barked, and while he's hit 95 mph in his outings after a monthlong layoff, he hasn't been the ...

Initial reaction is have to be at, at least 5 and likely 6 wins through that week 10 game vs Detroit for any playoff hopes with the finish.

Re: Addison Russell

It came up in the GT today but thought I'd post it here to keep the discussion going. The results haven't been great but the process has been really good by Russell so far this year and good things should start happening soon. As the Duke'ster and I pointed out Russell this year...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I know Chatwood has walked like half of the batters he's faced, but Alex Cobb has given up 20 hits in 7 innings and has a 15.43 ERA in his first two starts. Yeah, give me the guy who is still doing some things well and has the premium stuff and is suppressing contact and hope he gets the BB down to...

Don’t know if it’s just their DL shenanigans again or if it’s actually serious? Also, is “finger inflammation” just a fancy word for blister?

What is the reference to “expectations and what he’s done in past” and he concerns about with Hankins? 6’5” 17 year old hitting mid 90s doesn’t seem like there’s too much concern other than just the general concerns about prep arms. He had shoulder "fatigue" recently that knocked him out ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

the current playoff format is pretty great. Although I’d probably feel differently if the Cubs were on the wrong end of some short series NLDS randomness/luck in their recent run. Yeah I’m fine with it and the overall 162 game set up too. Just saying it seems making playoff series longer would be s...

Rizzo wants fewer games, I agree. Shorten the season by ~20 games and add additional playoff teams/rounds and start the year 1-2 weeks later. https://twitter.com/ESPNChicago/status/986322647347703808 Adding playoff teams is bad for us.

Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

I saw a crazy note on Twitter today. Ben Simmons has not made a 3 pointer in a game since High School/AAU. Didn’t make one at LSU and hasn’t made one in the NBA.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-16-18

How hard would it even be to get under the LT in 2 years after Zobrist, Morrow and Lester are all off the books, that’s over $50 million between the 3? Hopefully we just suck it up and take the LT hit the next 2 years and get under/reset the year after that.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Wet grass has a tendency for the ball to kinda “skip” like that instead of killing it i think. Even though you’d think it would kill it, it usually “runs” more.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-16-18

I'm not worried about K rates with Ademan yet. Nor am I going to take his SLG rates seriously either. But, I do think he's a top 50ish prospect by the end of the year. And a very nice lead piece to pair with Heyward, to unload his contract, in the offseason. I’m hoping we don’t need to get rid of a...

The whole Mickey Callaway is a genius baseball man and the reason the Mets are good again narrative is annoying.
