Re: 2020 roster

I would for sure be down with getting Betts, but also more, for the extra year of Bryant.

Re: 2020 roster

No we are not “screwed.” That sequence of moves is so unlikely, just not realistic. The problem isn’t the core, the core is still pretty damn good. The problem is the margins and complimentary pieces to supplement what the core lacks, which can be addressed in the offseason. You just don’t blow it ...

Re: 2020 roster

What good does Bryant for Betts even do besides subtract an MVP candidate to replace him with one hitting FA after the season? How is Bryant's 26-27 any different from Rendon's 25-26 outside of being way better? Well, it's more replacing Bryant with Rendon but then also getting another star for KB....

Re: 2020 roster

The 4 best SP, the best reliever, and 4 position players(3 of them stars) are basically chiseled in concrete, it’s gonna feel familiar unless you start making trades for the sake of trades. The reckoning starts one way or another after next year, when you have half the rotation plus Rizzo out of co...

Also, I feel like Cole Hamels has cost himself years and millions of dollars with his injury-riddled second half.

I brought this up last week, but Yu can opt out of his contract after the season if he wants. I still don't see it happening, but he's making things interesting for himself.

When I say his last name, I say it as Horner. Like Bob Horner. I bet that's not the way it is actually said, therefore I'm not saying in out loud yet. Let me know.

Re: Baez Hairline fracture of his left thumb

I think he should just tape it up and play. Or just use one hand to bat. And if it's the right hand that's broken, he thankfully can throw with his left. He could even just have them cut the hand off and he'd be better than Addison Russell.

Re: Nick Castellanos is a bad mother[bleep]

Also, I think it can be concluded that Theo does much better on trades than free agent signings. There have been a few clunkers, but for the most part, the man does really well with it and should do more of that.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Theo punched his ticket to the Hall of Fame the night the Cubs won Game 7. Now, whether someone thinks he should be a Hall of Famer certainly can be a discussion, but he's still already in. It wasn't a debate or discussion anyone was actually having; it was an odd non-sequitur reply to people point...

Re: The Ball is Insanely Juiced

Exactly. I don't necessarily want to increase scoring to the level at Coors Field (I don't hate that idea, but it's not a necessary component) but greatly increasing the number of hits and baserunners would be my goal. Just eliminate the shift. The shift isn't doing much to curb baserunners. BABIP ...

Re: The Ball is Insanely Juiced

Definitely, I wasn't meaning that. I meant as ballparks naturally get built that it would factor into the process. That is obviously a very long-term solution, but within the next 30 years probably 15-20 ballparks will get replaced (that would actually be fewer than the last 30 years, which I would...

He basically brings up Addison Russell and everyone falls in line by responding with everything we already know. In this particular case, if Cox post...

I can't figure out if he's actually cleared yet or not. I've seen conflicting reports.
