Re: Technology Chit-Chat

Looking into getting a new desktop for work, doesn't need to be super fancy. Budget of about $500. Really only need the bare bones of word processing and web browsing. Need to have plenty of hard drive storage as well to transfer files, etc. from my old laptop. Suggestions? I just bought a desktop ...

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

Not the 2027 Cubs even. Try the Cubs in three years when they hope to sign Bryant and maybe Baez and others and they have $80 million wrapped up in three players already. Sure, I suppose they can worry about that then. 3 years from now you're talking about essentially a different franchise. Bryant,...

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

Again, the Cubs aren't poor. But there is a huge difference between making two moves to essentially pay Cole Hamels $13 million for one year and signing somebody for $400 million plus over 14. "somebody" And that difference is more or less inconsequential unless you think Harper is bad(no...

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

Playing some devil's advocate... The Cubs philosophy since Theo took over has been to develop position players, and to pay for pitching. I wonder if they decided they had to keep doing that? Trust that the guys on the offense that have struggled can play up to their potential, and continue to pay f...

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

There is a part of me that enjoys trying to brainstorm how to optimize the roster given constraints, team building has always been a fun puzzle in that way for me. The Dodgers especially have shown the benefit of not being slave to free agency to find really good production(Turner, Muncy, Hill, etc)...

Beto's in a similar position to Kander, right? A higher national profile at this point, but Kander has mostly worked on voting rights stuff since losing his senate race(ugh, Blunt and Hawley are my senators now) AFAIK.

Either that’s referring to Hyde being up for manager jobs, and/or Hickey/Butterfield/Borzello is looking around. Eyepatch just got hired and Strode will be here til the heat death of the universe.

Re: Addison Russell

Yeah, Russell is very obviously never playing another inning for the Cubs. There's worthy debate as to whether it's moral to try to maximize his value in the meantime(and whether it's legal to simply release him/non-tender him in the other direction), but he's done in Chicago. This post will self-de...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

There's a growing consensus in the neighborhood of 33 million AAV for Harper. Heyman and his industry friend averaged that, Fangraphs crowdsourced that, and now Ralph. Even if it's 35 million, and even if 246 million is a hard cap for the offseason, you can make that fit. How deep the roster ends up...

Every November we hear variations on ‘boy I don’t know, we’ll have to see if there’s room in the budget, we’ll have to be smart with our spending’, and then every year they end up with a Lester, a Heyward, a Darvish. Again, the most salient bit of information we have this offseason is that the front...

Personally, I'm starting to think that Theo just got blindsided by our end of the year org meetings and was told we've got budget restraints due to the uncertainty of the TV deal...... If that's the case, the Hamels deal doesn't matter, because they're more concerned long term, than short term. The...
