Re: Minor League Musings

Also interesting that Davis *is* included in that group. I wouldn't have been confident that with his length that he'd have the swing-speed for exit-velo. ?? Is this a physics thing? I was terrible at that stuff —— Ernst did a profile on Ademan too and there’s something I just like about his swing:...

Re: Theo Speak

Two things I remember out of that interview:

- Is it really against the rules to talk about specific FAs? Is that why we get all that anonymous nonsense during rumor season?

- I listened Friday so maybe wrong, but Contreras is the only non-Russell Cub mentioned. Obviously trade bait

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I'm not necessarily worried about injuries. From a division perspective who’s rotation is really more safe or better? They all have age, health, experience and regression worries. If we get any sort of offense close to not August on offense and top 15 but not top 12 rotation (rough range) we will b...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

The Twins and the Pohlads are gross. Please stay away, any major FA ever! I'd be cool if the A's came out of nowhere to sign Machado. I'd become an A's fan, enjoy some Matt Chapman and AJ Puk (soon!) for a little, and then when they announce public funding numbers for the new park hopefully have the...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

Morrow is absolutely our best relief pitcher when healthy. I'd rather have him available for leverage spots vs traditional closing spots if he could handle the role from a physical stand point (which how they've talked he probably just needs to be a regular closer during the year and be used whenev...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

I do believe a little in a guy having "closer experience" being a thing. So that plays a role. As I've maintained all year, my main interest in him was in this scenario where he could just be had for really cheap. He wasn't a guy I had to have at any cost. I think he's still plenty fine f...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

Right. But I’m assuming we would at least have the little it takes for him on a 1 year deal and for any in season deals needed for the pen. He’d make the pen stronger on paper to start the year and at least let us re-evaluate around June or whenever Morrow is back what needs to be added or who shif...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

we may not be in on cody allen because he just sucks butt Worse guys are “closers.” He’s likely mostly fine there in the regular season and let the better guys handle the leverage spots. Especially on a 1 year deal, there’s no risk. If you’re trying to be the best, most dominant team possible the r...

There was a bit on MLBTR today that the Angels MIGHT top a $165 million payroll IF they got creative. Horrendous, they can handle more This offseason is really dumb but not because the Cubs missed out on Cody Allen. Guy hasn’t been a badass since 2015 The Angels are a solid fit for him too.

Yeah by the deadline I think we’ll have a few top 100 prospects and probably 1-3 top 50 , plus guys on the current MLB roster. We “should” have trade ammo.
