Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Isn't the real fear "What if we can't re-sign Kris Bryant?" Like right now I doubt anyone is too concerned about losing Russell or Schwarber if we get Harper. And yeah, it's probably worth it considering we'd have the two best players in the NL together for three years, but it's worth bri...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Yeah god forbid our lineup needs to be reduced to Harper, Bryant, Willson (through their late 20s ands early 30s) along with whatever we get for trading off Russell/Baez/Happ/Schwarber and a bunch of Tommy LaStellas and Jon Jays types in FA. We might only score 850 runs.

Don’t think we’d be in on Moore, even for a salary dump?

Re: The Cubs Madoff moment?

With options now available and mainstream trading platforms offering it I think this thing is gonna get shorted in to oblivion. Good for PTR to get in on the action and make some money.

It’s MLBs proprietary streaming and other technology. I believe this money comes from ESPN/Disney buying a stake in it. Or could be from licensing agreements they have for other companies/sports to use it.

We just got a $50 million windfall that didn’t sound overly expected, have LT space this year and are printing money. I’m all for getting him.

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

The 2020 version of the Phillies in my Road to the Show this time has their lineup anchored by Harper and Schwarber. And Rizzo is on the White Sox. Bryant is still on the Cubs, but he's mostly just OK, while Heyward is still there and inexplicably turned into a hitting superstar. It's pretty horsef...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

We are going to end up with Harper unless some team comes in and offers some ridiculous offer like 12/500+. But in the case we don't get him yeah Machado should definitely be a target, then trade 1 of Russell or Javy for some pitching (maybe even try and attach Zobrist and the last year of his contr...

Re: Phillies make a Smooth deal

Phillies could be an interesting team this year if their pitching comes along. No threat to win the divisions unless the Nats have crazy injuries but with the Braves, Marlins and Mets all sucking and getting ~50 games against those 3 I could see them in contention for a WC spot.

Cozart to the Angels for 3/38. Pretty good deal. They should have some spectacular defense this year.

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

This seems like a major pipe dream to me. Great player no doubt, but I have almost zero interest in him at his proposed price point. Regardless of how much money is printed at Wrigley, the Cubs aren't going to launch their payroll into the stratosphere and into the nasty tax range. If you're expect...

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

You donating the NSBB domain squatting profits to the Ricketts to make such moves possible, Tim? The 2018 salary wouldn't be that bad, tbh. I'm pretty sure that's under the luxury tax (but without room for midseason moves). It's the 2019 re-signing Machado and also adding Harper that just can't hap...

What an awfully run organization, no wonder teams don’t like dealing with them. Just trade him to Yankees if that’s your fear, you aren’t competing this year and weaken their system.

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

I really have no interest in Salazar, the cost and being worthy of a Mets rotation spot with his health just too much downside. I really would like Avila back, even at a little more than a traditional backup.
