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...

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

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

That’s the best part. There are some who are saying six years is too long, which I agree with. Oh, except when you realize he got the total money he was supposed to get for five.

I can believe there are opt outs. I mean, we got the dude for much less than Lester and that was three years ago. (Lester was a bit younger but still).

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

David and everybody were right. Great job.

And to see it at $150 and then at the same time see $126 made it so much better.

Re: Bullpen Options

...I've posted this before, but Sergio Romo was pretty great in the second half after working with Hickey. If he could be had on a short, cheap deal, I'd love to bring him in. Particularly if he could be had on an NRI. Theo basically said they were done with pen after Duensing, so I don't think the...

Re: It turns out the real Yu Darvish was the friends we made in this thread

why would you think, with the amount of money the cubs have to spend and the one obvious area for improvement, that they would merely be faking interest in the best available solution to fill that spot? Not faking. Just not nearly interested enough to give Yu market value. I think they got more inv...

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

They are the C-list movie star trying to be relevant again by picking a public fight with the A-lister. It's kind of annoying that we are acknowledging them at all, although it was pretty entertaining.

Re: It turns out the real Yu Darvish was the friends we made in this thread

Sorry for bumping without an update. If the Brewers have the best offer out to Yu, doesn't that mean our offer is one in which the Cubs don't at all plan to get him but wanted to make sure they did their due diligence? I can't imagine the Brewers offer is THAT high, and if we are even lower, I can't...

The real fascination at this point is that some team 3 months into the free agency process is all of a sudden going to wake up from a deep slumber and go all in on Darvish. With the early signees out of the way, he's been ripe for the taking for 2 solid months now and nothings happened. And if the ...

Brewer insider guy says he thinks, based on what he’s heard, Archer will be a Brewer and Darvish will not and Cobb will be their FA addition. Well, that’s not great. Yeah I would feel really bad for Archer. Finally gets traded and it's to another horsefeathers team. Even worse for him, he will now ...
