Drew Hutchison for > or = 7th starter? This isn’t really a pool like the Cubs might shop in but Hutchison was once a name prospect before TJ surgery.

Have to think he will be be all like “those guys are really good or might be really good, you should get one” and maybe Maddon will let Theo know

Re: Chris Bosio Fired

I hope this Hickey guy brings Archer or even Honeywell or even Blake Snell and Colome and maybe even Stanek.

Re: Chris Bosio Fired

If it is Hickey I wonder if that means they’d really go hard after Cobb or McGee in FA or Odorizzi in a trade. Just get Archer please via trade Edit: So my reading comprehension is way off, though yeah in any trade they should aim higher than Odorizzi. McGee and Cobb should be serious FA targets, e...

Re: Theo's Presser

Would love to see some impact arms from within as either SP or RP - but if Tseng is it, well then. Any chance of someone developing at a quicker rate than expected? Like to a couple of the college arms from the ‘16 draft? Jose Albertos if his arm doesn’t explode has the kind of talent to reach the ...

Re: John Mallee

Also have to realize the core is still extremely young. The offense may not hit its peak for another 3 years. Eh, I’ll put my money on next year. Im sure next year will be great but 2020 when all these guys are like 27 and Rizzo is like 30 or 31 might be the true peak with Bryce Harper in RF. Yeah ...

People who don't understand advanced metrics are endlessly frustrating.

Re: College Football - Week 8 (Oct. 21)

Thoughts on the college QBs definitely or possibly entering the draft next year? Right now I would say my favorite is Mason Rudolph but what's up with this Baker Mayfield guy?

Re: Bears game 6: Joey Elite vs. Elite Rushing game 10/15 at Noon on Fox

Yeah, the escape and throw on 3rd and 11 is a flash of what could be. Mobile, good vision, and a strong as hell arm to make that throw without his feet underneath him. Yes Caveat: we need a new coach and wr’s I was already a non-believer because of the whole one year starter thing, but just from a ...

Re: Rank the Bullpen Potential...

Mills, Tseng, Zastrzny, Alzolay, Hatch, and Rucker will all start next year. I have doubts Butler is in the org. Maples and Carasiti will each have their shot next year one way or another, maybe one even makes an impact. Clifton could do well with a move to the pen. Mekkes, Brooks, and Ricky Tyler T...

Yeah i might be aiming too high. I was thinking you could get a discount for taking on that contract, but actually zId rather wait and give Harper our own dumb contract. Are there any realistic pieces we could pluck? Yelich's contract isnso good i doubt theyd move him in a "cost saving" m...

Less now but Beltran would have made that lineup ungodly and helped avoid the gajillions spent on non-Beltrans that occupied CF.

I just noticed Kris Bryant's K rate fell below 20% this year. It's a'comin, hopefully starting with this NLCS against those hacks in LA.
