Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

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...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

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.

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).

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: 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...
