Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

I think he turns out to be a version of Andrew Miller out of the pen for us this year and doesn't really start many games. He'll prove his worth out of the pen more valuable than starting. If that is the eventual outcome I certainly won't be upset, but I continue to think it's a mistake to not give...

Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

https://twitter.com/gdubcub/status/847130229357199360 Having Montgomery as your only LHRP to start the season seems silly, but I guess with a 10 day DL if there's legit injuries they can play the juggling game.

Re: The Cardinals

Wong is pretty bad and yeah he wouldn't make our 25 man sure there's a team like the Padres who'd take him.

I also thought the Cardinals were going to focus on defense this year, so..... putting at Gyorko at 2B over Wong seems counterintuitive

Re: #NotAllPitchers

Do they make a new thread at Mets Refugees every time one of their pitchers has elbow discomfort or do they just have one injury mega-thread? Pretty sure they make a new one and then it pretty much goes with them saying they are fine because Wheeler can just take the injured pitchers spot (even tho...

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

Don't know why Purdue isn't trying a zone against Kansas. They can't stick with their guards man to man. Especially with their bigs, just clog things up. All those open 3s were created off of the dribble drive which Purdue couldn't hang with, if you go zone at least you can contain the dribble/kick ...

Re: The (Last?) World Baseball Classic Game Thread

I know why (because respect the game or some horsefeathers), but why doesn't some promotion department do a band/vuvuzela/trumpets/drum night for a MLB team. Especially a horsefeathers one on weeknights in the summer?

It seems like it happens more years than not for teams trading up to/out of picks between 1-9ish. It happened twice last year with Goff/Wentz.

Yeah, I don't think it's a joke. Didn't Simmons get mad at someone else doing a trade value column at some point? I can't find anything online about it, but I swear it happened.

Re: Random Offseason Musings and Rumors

The White Sox extended Tim Anderson, they bought out all his arbitration years and have 2 team options on his first 2 FA years that would keep him through 2024 and make the deal worth ~$50 million. Why? I get there isn't much downside but what's the upside? Do they think he's going to be a supersta...
