Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

Would like to see the Cubs be the #1 seed. Dodgers have been playing great after a rough start. Obviously, if the Cubs take care of their own business, it doesn't matter what any teams do. Also, I don't particularly like the Dodgers and don't mind seeing them suck. I just think we need to stay more...

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

Yelich hits a tater off of Kershaw to tie the game at 2 in the bottom of the 6th. Torn on who to root for. Would like to see the Brewers continue to fade. But at the same time, I'd like to see the Dodgers cool off a bit. Not directed at you, but this seems really stupid. Who the hell cares how hot ...

Good news?

I think it is, end of July isn’t far off.


But that’s also being termed the optimistic view. I read that as the best case view and that any other view has him out longer.

I could be taking it wrong, though.

Re: Midseason Assessment (aka - what do we need at the deadline?)

One option for back up catcher could be Robinson Chirinos in Texas. He's in the last year of his contract, Texas sucks, and may not be too expensive to pick up. Caratini should not be the back-up. The only way he has value as a catcher is if he's getting plate appearances. I think he can be an abov...

Re: Score: Darvish to Resume Throwing in a Few Days (Triceps Tendonitis)

Of course, the tweet makes it sound like he’s rejoining the rotation and not just the team. And then Hickey saying he doesn’t know the results of the MRI.....This is better news, but nothing very concrete.

so i kept hearing all this talk about the cubs regretting not re-signing arrieta and how he's doing great in philly and i looked at his numbers and...uh...no? i mean i guess he hasn't given up many runs outside of getting shelled by the marlins, but he's not striking anyone out and he's still walki...

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

From The Athletic article on him after the game tonight.... According to Statcast, 74 of Darvish’s 94 pitches were either his four-seamer or cutter. He used his changeup four times and his curveball just once. In his previous start, Darvish went to his change five times and his curve just twice whi...

If true, I suppose I could see them getting some additional prospects to get Archer and also clearing up the outfield log jam.

it has to be that they thought they'd be able to move Domingo pretty quickly in a package for a pitcher..........if not, what a weird signing.

Yeah, that guy turned out to be pretty bad. He hit on Yelich early so it seemed like he had some good info, but it got worse and worse from there.

Re: Offseason Transactions

Don't imagine Cobb will come in at $52/4. The deals don't really seem to be coming in particularly low. My guess is that if he didn't feel like he had offers better than that, he'd have signed with Twins before this. And my guess is if the Twins thought they could get him at that kind of price, the...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

Has anyone checked in on Quintana? Has he vented anything on social media? Im sure he's pretty shaken up over these comments saying that because he's lived up to/exceeded the first multi-million dollar contract he will sign in his lifetime he now has a fancy new teammate and better odds to be a Wor...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

I'd feel the Quintana comments come off worse if he would have been FA eligible but was getting like 5 mil a year, or if he were just 1st year arb eligible or something. He signed an extension after his first good season in the big leagues that even with his best possible outcome realized, will cos...

Theo never wanted Arrieta. He is just trying to drive the price up on the Brewers. Theo is 10 steps ahead of every GM.
