Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Question: Can the Cubs sign Harper and Kimbrel next offseason without penalty? They will have to go into the Luxury Tax to sign Harper alone, probably even in the (impossible) situation where Heyward opts out. So it's a matter of what penalties are you comfortable with. If you're signing Kimbrel to...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Also, it remains so silly that the idea that 'you might have more good players than you can afford 3 years from now' is considered a risk. Sure maybe you don't have the flexibility to extend a guy that far out, but it's just as much a feature in case Russell or Schwarber's bat doesn't come back arou...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

At the moment, the 3 most important/valuable position players are Bryant, Rizzo, and Contreras. Contreras would be under control for 4 years of Harper, Bryant and Rizzo for 3. Even if it meant you eventually choose between Bryce Harper and the arb years of someone like Schwarber or Russell, you very...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Sounds good to me. The stricter proposal is preferable anyway(and the reset for stepping off the rubber is a huge loophole either way), and the union gets to show they're pissed off and project that they're going to fight the owners on other things which should be much more consequential than the pa...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Yeah, if you were to try to craft a narrative, Darvish not only probably doesn't want to go to Minnesota, but they don't have the financial might to push a Cubs offer higher, so he's waiting for the Yankees to somehow gain the flexibility to either take their offer or use it as leverage against the ...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Joel Sherman threw out 6/120 for Darvish with $30 mil the first 2 years, $20 mil the next 2 and $10 mil in the final 2 years with opt outs in years 2 and 4. Yes, please I was thinking 5/100 with 25M the first 2 and an opt out after that would be real good. The odds of someone else stepping up to of...

Re: Bullpen Options

Morrow, Cishek, and a full year of (hopefully) not-2017 Wilson is a fair amount of turnover too. You can quibble that the names are the wrong names, but 3 of the top 5 relievers being new from April 2017 to 2018 is significant.

Re: Bullpen Options

Is it possible this paves the way for Montgomery to start? This is the permutation I think about, because Wilson, Montgomery, and the LH eating righties we have(Edwards, Morrow, kinda Strop) mean there isn't a whole lot of need for a LOOGY in particular. If you're going with Montgomery to the rotat...

Re: McCutchen to the Giants

McCutchen at 1/15 doesn't have a lot of value, so the return doesn't surprise me too much. Seems like the Pirates plan is to: - Hope a couple of their higher end prospects pan out(Polanco, Bell, Meadows, Taillon, Glasnow) - Shore up their roster to eliminate glaring holes(getting Moran and Musgrove ...

They didn't have much of a choice, but the Giants are really leaning into the path the Tigers went down a few years back.
