Re: Gleyber Torres Getting Called up to the Bigs

Eloy is the second-coming of Nomar Mazara. I'm pretty confident in saying Eloy will be better than Nomar Mazara. I have no idea how Mazara is doing right now lol. Not as well as everyone thought he'd be doing. No one was comping Mazara to Miguel Cabrera. I mean that comp is ridiculous for any prosp...

Torres could turn into the next Ernie Banks and I wouldn't give a fuuuccckk eloy would be the painful one Yeah Eloy could sting but I probably still do the Q trade every time even if you tell me Eloy is going to be a monster http://cdn1.clevver.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/doesnt-make-sense.gif I...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-19-18

Man, I really wanted to read/see highlights of Adbert Alzolay. I've seen very little of him and I've heard mixed things about his breaking ball.

Hopefully, he's legit and we'll see him at Wrigley later this year.

Thanks! That seems pretty consistent with where he is expected to go in the draft. Are there any guys whose ranking on there is out of line with their projected draft position due to signability concerns? That's what I'm most curious about.

Re: The Price is wrong, female dog.

I’ve read comments from many Reds fans who inexplicably think Barry Larkin would lead them to the promised land I think Barry Larkin could be a very good hitting coach, but I haven't been impressed by his work on MLB network. In all honesty, it doesn't matter who they hire -- the Reds aren't winnin...

Praise Jah for this crazy emphasis on signability on the draft: Chances Kumar Rocker gets to the Cubs at 24? Eric Longenhagen: There's a chance he falls due to signability but I'm not sure they can pay him. Their pool is around $7mil. If Rocker wants $5mil, it's tough to make that work and still ha...

I'm very impressed with his bat, but how good is he defensively? I've read mixed things. If he can be solid-average at a bunch of positions he'll be a nice utility option/bench bat for us later this year and going forward. He could potentially replace Zobrist.

So, if the NBA rigs the lottery for Bulls again, what are everyone's thoughts on Ayton vs. Doncic vs. Bagley for the Bulls?
