Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I've always wondered how much a guy like Bryce Harper brings to a team in terms of additional revenue and how they go about trying to factor that in.

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

This doesn't make baseball sense, but Zobrist is the one guy I want to stay with the Cubs until he retires. That hit was just too important and iconic for me.

Charles is our version of that one Brewers guy who eventually got kicked off their board.

It's sort of sad.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Darvish looks a lot dumber if it really did take us out of Harper range. And Cole! I like Cole and think he'll be solid but spending $20 million with this supposed tight budget doesn't seem like a great use of resources. And Kintzler. Cole and Kintzler are moves they made late enough in the game th...

Re: Goldschmidt to Cardinals

FWIW Goldschmidt is only project by steamer to be .010 points better by wOBA and 10 points better than what José Martinez gave the Cardinals last year and I’m assuming that Martinez is going to be out now. Jose Martinez is the most uncomfortable looking first baseman I've ever seen. Oh he’s horsefe...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

In this scenario, I'd rather sign Bryce Harper for the same type of deal and team him with KB for three years and get the single draft pick for Bryant if he leaves. Heck, worst case, team them together for two seasons and trade KB for a lesser prospect package than you'd get now, but still a solid o...

Brisbee speculating Machado to the Cubs for 10/330 Based on trading Bryant though. I can see the “trade your elite third baseman for prospects and eat it to” logic, but I don’t like the idea of trading Bryant after what was by far his worst season, and I don’t like Machado over Bryant going forward...

So nobody needs to give clicks.

I just don't believe in untouchables. Why limit yourself?” So it was the old, player was...

3 years from now you're talking about essentially a different franchise. Bryant, Baez, Rizzo, Lester, Zobrist, Hendricks, Schwarber, Montgomery, Quintana, the whole bullpen sans Edwards, all at free agency. If anything Harper extends your window of competitiveness by having a star caliber player to...
