Re: The Business of Baseball (AKA never side with management)

If we’re talking solutions, I don’t know if I shared this here: - If you spend ~2 months on an MLB roster, it's a full year. No more of this partial accumulation stuff that hurts everyone from Kris Bryant to journeyman relievers. - Give minor leaguers a living wage you dummies. They'll be more produ...

Re: SEAL BOY OUT

Worth noting, Lillis-White spent his AAA time at Salt Lake, which has Coors-ian park factors. Even when you include his time in Mobile/AA: Home: 35.1 IP, 5.09 ERA, .753 OPS against, 35 H, 50/20 K/BB, 4 HR Away: 36.2 IP, 1.96 ERA, .539 OPS against, 27 H, 48/12 K/BB, 2 HR His whole-season numbers are ...

Off the top of my head, Roederer and Hoerner on the offensive side, Marquez, Estrada, and Little on the pitching side.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

https://twitter.com/WTraymor/status/1072949101195599872 So if we indulge this, the Padres make a lot of sense for Russell as a landing spot.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

what the horsefeathers did OMC find his way into the cubs front office? https://twitter.com/chelsea_janes/status/1072942242636038144 Is this from Harper's perspective? Because knowing the company he keeps that would mean one of those videos teams make that happen to have a woman with exposed ankles.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Blame for not having money to sign Harper is like 90% Theo/Jed and 10% ownership, and most of that 10% is the unlikely possibility they pulled the rug out from the FO after picking up Hamels. Ownership could almost certainly spend more, but they’re also on pace to drop about 260 million in luxury ta...

I wonder if “trading future dollars” means more they don’t want to or “can’t” pay him $35-40 mil+ this year and with all the money coming off the next 2 years they want to pay him more like $20 mil this year and jump it starting in 2 years but Bryce/Boras want more in the first year or two and “tra...

Isn't Tulo a bit of a McCann/Lester style leader/weirdo? If he can still physically fake it at SS that might be worth a go.

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

I can see Zobrist being a part of some type of 'turn a paperclip into a mansion' series of moves. For example, if the return for Zobrist meets or exceeds the cost to get Cesar Hernandez, then that's basically a free 5 million. Happ and Bote's presence also make it easier to replicate his expected pe...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

To add on to that, Soria could make a lot of sense as a short term guy who can close. You have him locking down the 9th and don't have to worry as much about scrambling in the 9th because Morrow needs more rest than normal. Strop, Morrow, and Edwards are great setup men, Cishek and Montgomery are gr...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

We’re interested in Soria. As the 2nd relief pitcher added (if we assume we are adding 2) I’m fine with it. As the main one that would be underwhelming. https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/cubs/ct-spt-cubs-joakim-soria-20181206-story.html I dunno, Soria’s age adds some risk, but all reli...

Mmmm, yeah, if there's anything that's going to lure a team to taking on that horsefeathering millstone of a contract, it's guys like Happ and Schwarber. Apparently you didn't hear that Schwarber isn't on the trade block, so we'll have to lure a team to take on Heywards contract by using Chatwood, ...

If this is the faustian bargain we have to make to get Harper I'll accept it, but I won't be happy about it. Hamilton is so horrific with the bat that you can't justify him a roster spot.
