Re: Folty DFA’d

Is it fair to say this guy has been an average or below average pitcher each season of his career except for one good year? If it's not, I'll easily take the statement back.

Re: Game Off (MLB suspended indefinitely)

Yeah, I'm pretty confident this was leaked to Passan by Scott Boras. He is a fan of this. Not only is it probably going to be too dangerous, not only will it be difficult to coordinate this all, but if Covid doesn't make some of the players sick, playing in 110-degrees every day for two or three mon...

Re: Game Off (MLB suspended indefinitely)

I welcome baseball being back because it will mean our country, hopefully, has turned the corner. But is it OK that I won't care about what happens this season because it will sort of be a sham one? I just won't really recognize the World Series winner the way I normally would. Please feel free to t...

Re: Kipnis to Cubs Minor League/NRI Contract

Honestly, if you give me 10 minutes to go back and watch highlights...give me Game 6 against the Dodgers every day. Outside of the fact that it ended with Chapman on the mound, it's pretty much perfect. My favorite thing (other than the obvious WS stuff) to watch from that run is the comeback in SF...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

Would this be allowed to skirt the LT..... Lester has a LT hit of $25 million currently. He’s owed $20 million this year and has a $10 mil buyout/$25 mil option next year. Could we sign him to like 2/35 so his LT hit comes down ~$8 million? I don't see why not, Lester gets a guaranteed 2021 and mor...

Re: Marcell Ozuna to the Braves

horsefeathers, well glad he didn’t go back to the Cardinals on that. Castellanos shouldn’t get more than that on an AAV basis. Does Castellanos take more than 3/30-40 right now? Ozuna has had higher highs and is only 1.5 years older. If he gets 3 for 30, the Cubs better figure out a way to be all o...

Recent talks between the Cubs and Nationals regarding Kris Bryant have “gone nowhere,” reports Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic (via Twitter). Negotiations seemed to hit an impasse a few weeks ago, when the Cubs reportedly insisted upon the inclusion of promising center fielder Víctor Robles in any Br...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

I like these moves. Between Eloy and Robert, they’ve committed $100M. Very likely they get at least that much value in return, with a high probability of getting value that far exceeds that amount. I still think I'd rather go cheap for three years and see what I have, but the rewards certainly can ...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

For a team with no money, they sure have wasted money on all of these ridiculous signings. They've spent maaaaaaybe $6-7 million give or take on like a dozen players and most of that is non-guaranteed. It's not wasted in a few ways: so much $/WAR potential, more MiL options, and all that non-guaran...
