Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

By the way, our 2nd pick should be coming after the FIRST round. It looks likevweve got a great shot at getting TWO comp picks after the 1st Round. All that needs to happen is for Jake and Wade to each sign for over 50 mill. If not, we receive picks after the 2nd for them. Davell, I'm not sure the ...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

How do we get Dave Cameron into the GM's chair in Seattle: JC: Happ for James Paxton. Who says no? Dave Cameron: Probably the Mariners, just because they already don’t have enough pitching and have okay options at 2B/OF. But Cubs might not want to turn Happ into a guy who can’t stay healthy either....

Re: Starting Pitching Options FA 2018

One of the guys at MLBTR was estimating contracts in his chat and mentioned Lynn at 4/60, Cobb around 4/48, and Chatwood on an Ivan Nova(3-26) type of deal, then mentioned he's the one guy there that thinks he'll get a 3rd year. If THOSE are the numbers, Chatwood at 3/26 is a no-brainer. I'm happy ...

Lester money, with a chance at needing another year on the deal


Yep, Dave Cameron in his Fangraphs chat earlier this week estimated 7/175, I believe Lester was 6/155

Re: ITT: Raisin & Tom/King Kong Obsess Over Shohei Otani

Love to get the guy, but unlike us, NYY is not in the international penalty box at the moment, no? Especially considering their prior history with Japanese imports, I'll be shocked if NYY doesn't wind up with Otani ...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Rosenthal also just tweeted backing up Morosi that Cubs indeed are pursuing Gray

In addition to possibly Happ or Almora, I wonder if Beane believes in Montgomery as a starter and would want him as return piece?

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

The Mets are selling. I saw Ryan Davis bring up deGrom and wondered what it'd take to get him.....He didn't think he'd actually be available, but threw out Eloy, Cease, Candelario, and one other guy(unnamed) as a fictitional package....Personally, I doubt that'd come close honestly, since there's n...

Excerpt below from Fangraphs Eric Longenhagen on Albertos last night.... I ran into Cubs RHP Jose Albertos for the third time this season. He was 92-95 and touched 96, as he was the last two times I saw him, and again struggled to find the strike zone. When he did, he was untouchable. He threw the b...

Re: NBA Playoffs (bulls also)

SSR, what's Ainge doing? You think you want Jackson? Or is this their way of trading for George or Butler? I'm guessing both. Use the Philly future pick with some assets to try to get George or Butler. I wasn't crazy about Fultz (though Jackson doesn't do a lot for me either) so unless there's craz...

Cubs content from Keith Law's chat earlier today... sans comments on Addison Russell situation Bret: How much does Nick Allen’s height concern you?

Re: 2017 Draft Thread

Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm really nervous about guys who have up ticks in velocity and stuff because it seems like they then get drafted and they're back to their old velocity and old stuff far too often. Who specifically are you talking about? Obviously for some players, an uptick in velocity is fle...

Ok, I'll throw a new name out there that hasn't been mentioned yet in the thread. The New York Mets are a dumpster fire right now.

In no particular order, the Eagles have needs at DE, WR, RB and CB I believe they 'd prefer one of the DE's to drop to them at such as Thomas or Barnett but alas they are both gone.

Re: NSB NFL Mock Draft 2017

Just an FYI since it's now a few picks away, but PHL and IND should be flipped. PHL picking 14th and IND 15th Howard would represent nice value at 10 for BUF. Goony, you are correct they did just recently re-up with their QB (Tyrod Taylor), so not sure they look QB at #10 overall. Corey Davis could ...
