Re: Bullpen Options

this basically guarantees that grimm is gone, right? but they still have to pay him, what, $1 million? and then duensing will make an extra $1 million over what grimm was slated for. If they go with an 8 man bullpen, Grimm will probably compete for the last spot. Morrow Cishek Edwards Strop Montgom...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Not to go all David here.... but Darvish’s second most recent follow on Twitter is Justin Grimm (and he only follows like 300 people and it’s not like Grimm is some great twitter personality, he hasn’t tweeted since July) and Strop recently started following Darvish..... he also liked the apology f...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Well, when Trump calls something fake news, it usually means he just doesn't like the story.

Maybe Yu did sign but isn't happy about it.

How far are we currently under the LT? Just tell him he can have that many dollars to accept a 1 year deal.

CubsWin wrote:Wait. Happ for Brad Hand? Straight up? Why?


Because the Cubs have too many outfielders with last names that start with H, but not enough relievers like that.


The H's aren't so much an issue for next season, but by '19 it will be getting kind of ridiculous.

Re: Cubs Close to Signing Morrow

If we do end up with all 3 of Chatwood, Cobb, and Morrow, with innings concerns for all 3, I wonder if Theo & The Gang are just really confident in their ability to keep pitchers healthy or if they're planning something unorthodox.

Re: Where will Giancar-go?

Trying not to let myself hate Heyward, thinking about how easily we could have had Stanton if it weren't for him. A ton of things had to happen to get to this point no reason to hate Heyward, plus we won a World Series. The Marlins might not have even been sold if Fernandez just decided to go home ...

Re: Where will Giancar-go?

This is fine. Takes our biggest competition for Harper off the board (ostensibly). We'll probably never know now, but I never saw Harper going to the Yankees unless they were the only ones offering him a monster contract. His personality just doesn't to mesh well with their lame crew cut/clean shav...

We don't even want the guy, but he'd approve a deal to us and he tells the Cards no, despite them begging him.

Where are you getting this?


5.1 fWAR in 6 "seasons"

but fWAR doesn't like GB guys who don't strike many out.


Got it. Didn't realize there was that big a difference from BR.

Re: Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood for 3/$38M

I'm optimistic about the signing. I'll be really excited if he throws more strikes now that he's out of Coors. 37BB in 70.1IP at Coors 40BB in 77.1IP away So it doesn't seem like that's the problem. The walks and low innings are the only things I don't like. Hopefully the control is something Hicke...
