Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

I love the job Theo + crew have done as much as anyone. However, I feel like they are getting more praise than they deserve for the drafting job they've done with the Cubs. I'm more than willing to give them the benefit of the doubt on the first round college hitter. But what else have they done in...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

LOL at anyone doubting Theo/Jed/Jason at this point. Even if he went 0 for this entire draft I would trust him. His drafts with the Cubs and the Red Sox before obviously have garnered a ton of trust. Ive seen the Bryant, Schwarber and Happ picks all criticized... Pretty sure Mookie Betts pick was h...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

every year i enjoy cubs fans watching the baseball draft like its the nfl draft I mean, it’s not as straight-forward but evaluating the mlb draft isn’t rocket science. You look at what number the pick is, then look at the pre-draft rankings, then you measure those against any standard list of numbe...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

Richan was solid, if a bit unspectacular, for San Diego this season, going 4-6 with a 4.62 ERA across 89 2/3 innings. He picked up 101 strikeouts as compared to a scant 13 walks, but was way too hittable, allowing 99 hits as well. He's a solid four-pitch pitcher with nothing overpowering, working i...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

At this point in the draft, don’t expect a prep pick to be underslot, even if he’s picked much higher than normal he consensus rankings. Quite surprising to see them go with a “raw” prospect this high. Goes against their MO. Thus far this draft has Wilken trying to be the smartest guy in the room w...

Re: Sports Media Thread

So if I heard right, there's a new guy heading the score who is friends with McNeil so he basically shook everything up just to get him back in the afternoon slot? That seems like a brilliant idea. The Afternoon slot was doing awful against Waddle & Silvy, can't imagine this changes anything th...

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

Also win now in NFL terms can be anywhere. even Chicago? Yes. They aren't going 16-0. But there's no reason they can't be a 10-6 team. Bears are probably a 7-9 team in a tough NFC North. Which will be seen as a win by the fanbase in year four of a rebuild because expectations are shot so low these ...

Sherman isn't coming to the Bears, he wants to win now. I'd rather draft one of the CB's in the top 10 anyways.

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

I'd generally be okay with trading Howard for the right package. He's a one-dimensional player that doesn't really fit in Nagy's system. But the proposed trade would be asinine. Landry isn't worth what he's going to be paid.

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

Already some talk the Fins are going to try and trade Landry. If so, I think my ideal scenario is to give up our 2nd for him and to trade 8 and our best 4th for 22, 53, and 55. I don't know if I liked it, without knowing you'd get a WR. But, if our 2nd could net Landry, I'd do this trade with Buffa...
