Re: The Cardinals

You know I gotta say I'm kinda sad that Matheny is gone, and now we have the idiot manager that says dumb horsefeathers all the time.

I didn't think this would happen with Maddon in charge...

Tough break (literally). I'm assuming it's his throwing hand/wrist right?

This injury will affect his power numbers, but it shouldn't affect his defense (I think), which is his calling card.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

https://mobile.twitter.com/BenLindbergh/status/1096456617841881089 Injuries, changes in pitcher usage, and a heightened awareness of prospect-success rates have shifted the way talent evaluators view the best up-and-coming arms in baseball. Good thing for Theo & company because we really don't h...

The man has no filter. He can't stop from blathering things that are damaging to his objective. I can't stand listening to that idiot. I overheard 30 seconds of his presser today.

Re: BA, BP, Fangraphs & Keith Law's Cubs' Top Prospects List

Not a fan of Jim Bowden, but FWIW he's putting out a top 200 list on The Athletic. So far, he's published 101-200. Looks like Amaya will be the only Cub in his top 100. Here are the Cubs listed thus far. (He seems to think Cole Roederer didn't play last year, so let that be an indicator of the qual...

Re: International Free Agency, 2019-2020

I wonder about the prudence of basically committing your full IFA bonus pool for one premium prospect like in the alleged agreements of the NYY and A's with Dominguez and Puason, respectively. You can always trade for more space/pool money I guess, but teams might not cooperate. I don't think I'd wa...

Isn't the rule change basically going back to the way it was done before? I could swear I remember a bunch of two sport athletes getting mlb contracts in the past. Yeah, so major league contracts were common for the top prospects (and Scott Boras clients) in the draft going back a few years before ...

Kyler Murray chooses football (or at least is making a public show of it). A's really effed that one up. We all knew they messed up. It was super high-risk/high-reward and they got burned.
