Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Yeah, Vea's strictly a NT. I’d wait for the combine on this. These size/speed freaks do everything. Vea’s been getting Ngata comps, that was a guy who played DE, DT, and dropped into zone coverage in a given moment, and even played some offense. Not sure where the Bears are on OL but Brian O’Neill ...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

I’m struggling to think of anyone’s incentive to give Darvish 6-7 years, particularly with such a concerted effort by teams in FA that is definitely not in any way collusion. Barry Bonds didn’t feel like playing anymore. Maybe there’s a shot the Twins, only now beginning to recover from just getting...

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

Wow, Lange’s delivery in 2017 looks so different (and IMO much better) from the 2016 one above: https://i.makeagif.com/media/1-16-2018/hHcd1d.gif The 2017 has some Carlos Carrasco to it. The 2016 version looks like a reliever or a BOR starter with a tendency to leave the fastball up. He definitely g...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Interesting feedback on Fuller...Guess I’ll have to hope the Jets can steal Gaines because no thanks on big money defense this year. Great to hear that he got it back together after a down year maybe two. The other Bears player I’m curious about - how is Leonard Floyd coming along? Raw - big Marcus ...

The idea that they REALLY WANTED Ohtani and eventually Harper and then REALLY REALLY wanted Harper after losing out on Ohtani is probably not without merit.

Re: McCutchen to the Giants

That's a pretty crappy return honestly for a player on a 1-year deal. I probably would've just held on to him, and maybe try moving him at the trade deadline this upcoming season. Then again, JD Martinez was killing it last year and the Tigers still received a horsefeathers return for him. I no ide...

Re: McCutchen to the Giants

You guys will enjoy it so I will say it - I still refer to Glasnow as tall future Chris Archer. Their control as prospects throws/threw the scent off but I believe in guys who combine healthy power arms with starter workloads and the kind of K, H, and HRs rates these two did at the ages they have.

Re: McCutchen to the Giants

I admire their willingness to gut it but this is going to be a long 2+ years that can easily last longer for Pirates fans. I don’t hate either return (individually I’ve liked Musgrove Reynolds and Crick for a while) but all have some massive likely crushing flaws and only Musgrove has had any ML suc...

Re: 2017-18 NFL Playoffs

Watching these games has me convinced the era of rhe franchise QB is dying. I’m also fully convinced Kirk Cousins is going to be a successful FA signing for someone.

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Thoughts on Kyle Fuller? He’s hitting FA and I’m a fan of VT DBs not named Jimmy Williams. How did he hold up physically on the Bears? Would you take him over say an EJ Gaines in FA?

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

With the understanding that this is standard there were plenty of trade targets who did not come to terms today. Stroman and Osuna, Gausman, Rivero with the Pirates, and Bauer stood out.

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

Badass move by the Astros if/when they pull this off. I think Cole has another gear or two in him, love the ingredients (no surgeries on a power arm with his track record and pedigree). His changeup is a pitch on the way up.

Seems like Scott Alexander does a very poor imitation of Zach Britton, lacking the velocity or command. More meat for the Cubs’ lineup in LA.

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

I imagine they were asking for Mackenzie Gore among those prospects. Gore is only a top 50 guy because of SSS. This time next year I think alot of people expext him to be the top pitching prospect in baseball and among the handful best overall.

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

Yeah scratch the extension nonsense, got some good feedback there thanks.

That two top 5 prospects price for Cole would be amazing. If Happ is involved then please squeeze in McCutchen.
