Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I saw Black Panther this weekend and it was amazing. I only had a few problems with the movie. The CGI was pretty bad towards the end during the climactic battle scenes. I feel like the CGI is getting worse during these big battle scenes in Marvel movies. I hope they fix this for Avengers: Infinity ...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a gun did this time

Well, Rubio's chances of ever running for higher office are over now lol. He'll probably end up being the next C. Christie at this rate. Both Democrats and Republicans will dislike him after tonight's performance. When is his seat up for re-election? 2022?

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

Badler just linked us to Gallardo. I feel like the Cubs have a good network of scouts in Venezuela. Our academy there is closed down, but I think going forward with the hard cap on signing bonuses we'll be doing really well in Venezuela. It does suck that these prospects won't be getting as much si...

I know. I saw that. I think he's a late bloomer, like a really late bloomer. Gallardo is done being an effective starting pitcher. I don't think that's the case for Guerra. What injuries did he have last year?

Re: Offseason Transactions

At this point, I think there's a decent chance one of Cobb or Lynn may wind up settling for less than we gave Chatwood. Do have to wonder if maybe we jumped on Chatwood a bit early. Revisionist obviously, but Cobb at 4/52 versus Chatwood at 3/38? I can see Chatwood winding up better, but I liked Co...

I think LHP - S. McClanahan is definitely going in the top-3 and maybe be considered for 1-1, as long as he remains healthy. Those Chris Sale comps don't seem so crazy anymore.

Re: Hosmer to the Padres - 8 Years $144M

I don't think it's a terrible deal if they can actually get him to start lifting the ball more and stop hitting so many damn groundballs. I don't know if you want to tinker with his swing, but it feels like he should be way better. He also seems like a good defensive 1B, but the defensive metrics di...

https://twitter.com/keithlaw/status/964152594011770881 It's an ESPN Insider article. His list is pretty different from other lists I've seen so far. He has Florida RHP - B. Singer really low at #22, and LHP - S. McClanahan at #13, which also seems too low. He has N. Madrigal way too low for an adva...

It's a really easy stat to understand. WAR and FIP and some other metrics are harder to decipher and understand especially for old school types not named Peter Gammons.

Stroman is saying some cryptic things on twitter. He’s going to cost a ton though, since it seems like the Jays think they can contend for a WC and aren’t in a rush to move him. He’s controlled for, 4 years. Stroman is only under team control for 3 more seasons (18, 19 and 20') and this is the seco...

Re: Yusei Kikuchi and Other Top MLB Prospects in Asia

After not signing Ohtani every other prospect from Asia feels disappointing right now. I know that's not fair and there are some good players over there, but it really sucks not getting him. I really thought we were getting him after we made it past the first cut.
