OK you guys are taking the Red Sox imitation too far.

Hopefully this means they are ready to show no regard for the LT because they are sitting on so much money

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

If they go through all of this trouble and I still have to watch a pitcher hit, imma horsefeathering kill somebody Am I the only one that likes the pitchers hitting? If only because pitchers juicing home runs is really, really, extra cool. Wood, Z, Lester, and Arrieta hitting dingers are very fond ...

Re: #NotAllPitchers

So Syndergaard's finger injury that "wasn't a big deal" and he was supposed to be good to go like two Sundays ago against the Yankees...... He currently isn't cleared to throw off a mound and is only throwing off flat ground with a splint on his finger and they "hope" mid-July fo...

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

This might be anti-big-man bias, but I'm struggling to see a best case scenario for Bamba where he's better than the 3rd best player on a championship caliber team. Like Spongeworthy, when you get the chance to draft this high I think you need to spend it on a guy who could be Option A or B on a ti...

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

Doing something like 7 pick and Portis for the 4th pick and Parson’s makes sense. Bamba is a good fit for the Bulls even if he’s just a rim protector and not much more.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Yeah I don’t think a starter add is on the radar that costs real assets. I think it’s bullpen only right now. And that add could be a guy who could start (Richard, Lugo, Gsellemen, for example).

Re: Golf thread

Yeah it's tough to compare it to another sports situation because it's 1) deliberately taking advantage of a rules loophole and 2) Golf specifically is self policing so nobody really looks for these kinds of loopholes, or at the very least, doesn't deliberately exploit them. What sport does not hav...

Re: Golf thread

I don't know the exact reasons behind it but I'm pretty sure there's a lot of animosity between a lot of the players and the USGA. I think more than anything the players were getting so pissed at the course and USGA that Phil did this as more of a F U to them and to make a joke of it because a lot o...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

I will admit to less than 100% rationality, but I would be bitterly disappointed with Machado. I don't believe in his bat, I don't believe in his glove, and adding him requires doing suboptimal things with other core players. Or let's put this another way, I expect Machado to be a .360ish wOBA guy ...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

I guess I'll ask it this way: is anyone here looking it as a "Harper or bust" kind of situation? Like, would it be a huge disappointment/downgrade to have to "settle" for Machado instead? I will admit to less than 100% rationality, but I would be bitterly disappointed with Macha...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

I mean, obviously I wouldn't be bummed if they signed Harper, but to my super dumb eye there doesn't seem to be this yawning gap of talent/value between the two that makes Harper such a slam dunk obvious choice over Machado (and it all hinges on most definitely NOT signing Machado with the idea of ...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

It’s kind of weird that Machado is less valuable as a shortstop than as a 3rd baseman, but it looks like his defense there is just that bad. How is that weird? He’s moving from the 4th or 5th hardest position to the hardest/most valuable for defense and he’s failing miserable at it. He isn’t a SS a...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Random thought...I remember in the winter there was some talk from the Red Sox that Chili Davis had something to do with the team’s poor power numbers but dismissed it as stupid. But now more than 1/3 into the season I see this Boston HR 2017: 27 out of 30 HR 2018: 2 out of 30 SLG 2017: .407 SLG 20...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Assuming no other injuries I’d say I’m almost certain Monty will be back in his swing man role once Darvish is back. That’s where he’s most valuable. We have some long stretches of games in the 2nd half (and a double header or two) so it wouldn’t surprise me to see him get some more starts when the...
