Lee was an incredible athlete coming out of HS. Maybe he still has a chance.

I wish.

These bets typically have like $500-1000 limits.

Re: Cubs trade Eloy, Cease, others for Quintana

It just sucks there were no other options available last year to trade Eloy for. Q was the best option and we needed him. I still stand behind the deal as being necessary and the process of it being good, Q needs to be better. And it’s a little ridiculous to call this a complete bust of a trade alr...

Re: Cubs trade Eloy, Cease, others for Quintana

Even sticking to the last 10 years, 1 1/2 years of Harden equaled no playoff games won and Josh Donaldson went on to win an MVP. It's going to take a lot to top that gulf, but there are two of them to do it. I’d disagree on the simple notion that at least Harden was viewed as an elite starting pitc...

Re: Sources: Cubs have a deal in place for Cole Hamels

Sounds like a good deal. I wouldn't want Hamels long term, but he's had a nice bounce back this season , and it seems like the Rangers are eating a lot of the deal and we're not giving up some top level talent, so all in all ... okay. Should add some stability to the back end of the rotation. Fangr...

Re: Offseason Transactions

Personally I'm hoping he finds his groove again. He was a hell of a pitcher and one of the most fun to watch. Prime Lincecum was amazing, definitely rooting for him. I do find it quite shocking they plan on making him the closer. He didn’t even pitch last season and was god awful the last anyone sa...

Re: Bullpen Options

Morrow looked great last season. Would be a great addition assuming his health checks out.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

If he does that then of course it does not matter. The issue is the approach tends to cause players capable of doing great things to not actually do great things. If he somehow manages to flail at a ton of stuff outside the zone but still produce, good on him. The concern is that things even out. I...

Re: Starting Pitching Options FA 2018

I feel like we’re going to have to trade for another arm looking at the options available. I don’t see anyway around it. That class is BAD. Is Chris Archer still maybe available? I would offer some of the farm for him. Archer/Lester/Quintana/Hendricks/Montgomery is strong. If we go the cheaper route...

I understand the concern about his plate discipline, but does it truly matter? He plays awesome defense all over the diamond and is going to OPS 800+ ..
