Re: Is Duke Silver dead?

It’s fitting that the king of the Mad Men GIFs disappears from time to time without warning or indication of how long he’ll be gone, just like Draper.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I wonder if “trading future dollars” means more they don’t want to or “can’t” pay him $35-40 mil+ this year and with all the money coming off the next 2 years they want to pay him more like $20 mil this year and jump it starting in 2 years but Bryce/Boras want more in the first year or two and “tra...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Probably because according to things like Spotrac the Dodgers have more money to work with (though I dunno what their luxury tax situation is, so whatever), and they have more of a history of an FU approach to money. They’re in a bit better spot this year and next currently (not by a ton) but they ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Can someone explain why “The Cubs are interested “ always has the caveat of “but they would need to get creative”, while “The Dodgers are interested” has no such caveats? Don’t they have a ton of OF’s and a similarly high salary situation? I’ve seen a decent amount of articles about how Puig, Peder...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Every single time they’ve wanted a player, they’ve gone over the top making a pitch to him. They’ve never once played hard to get, because that would be dumb. Why can’t it be they are making an over the top pitch while also playing it down publicly? We never really knew of the Lester and Heyward in...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

And they didn't hand him a blank check, and I'm pretty sure they didn't even offer him the biggest contract. They also didn’t tell everyone they couldn’t afford him. The Otani courting was also very public as it happened There definitely was the talk on not going to certain prices on Lester and the...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Their interest in Lester was wide-open and public so long before he hit FA that it was basically tampering Other teams were rumored to be more in on him during FA I’m almost certain (Braves for sure and maybe the Giants and one or two others). We also got the “Cubs will check in, but has to be thei...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Meh, I'm still not putting much stock in all the media reports. If Harper wants to be here (and it certainly seems that he does), it makes a lot of sense for the front office to act poor and hope he'll lower his demands to make it work. I refuse to get outraged when everybody is doing exactly what ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Seems weird to be upset about the most optimistic piece of Cubs/Harper information that's come out. Cubs not out, Harper wants to be here. If the Cubs know Harper wants to be here, wouldn't it be smart to put out what they've been putting out for negotiation purposes? Didn't we decide that Loxas wa...

Re: Cutch is not a Cub

Somewhat surprisingly, it likely isn't (according to FG). In terms of projected value or their projection for contract for him? How much they claim he was worth $$$$-wise the last couple of seasons. Got it, good for him. He seems like a great guy. I just would’ve guessed he’d win up at 2 years and ...

He is going to get broken in that ballpark with the White Sox defense behind him.

He always seems to give us problems so glad we don’t need to face him 3-6 times a year now.

If it’s just a back up catcher, who cares. Vic horsefeathering sucks, it could be an upgrade.
