Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-15-18

I haven’t seen anything from Ademan that indicates that he’s a shoo-in to be a strong hitter at any level of full season ball yet. certainly capable of doing so, but taking a few walks while the bat gets knocked out of your hands in low/high A doesn’t fill me with confidence. I don't see how his pl...

Re: The Cardinals

Lots of speculation that Girardi is the top candidate for the job...but if so...why fire Matheny? They basically have the same old school, no fun, managerial style. Girardi is actually an intelligent person though. There’s no way he’s possibly as bad as Matheny. I mean, Girardi is better at saying ...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

If you can make a deal for DeGrom using Happ and Almora and basically any reasonable permutation of minor leaguers, that's realllly hard for me to turn down. Especially with Bote looking at least LaStella-caliber with the bat, you can add a bench OF too and shift more of Zobrist's innings to the OF...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Just saw an article on ESPN.com stating that Hendricks will likely get the first start out of the AS break. Anyone care to speculate about how they will set up the rotation? I'll be at Wrigley on 7/26 for sure and probably 7/25 as well. Curious as to who may be projected to take the mound for those...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-12-18

In what is almost certainly a kiss of death for his start tonight, after seeing some of the Top 20s in the other thread, I think Thompson might be the most underrated prospect in the system. Yeah, I admittedly would only exclude him based on how poorly his game seems to have translated to the AA le...

Re: Video Game Thread

I assume it's the same for 18, but I've been playing a ton of FIFA 17 through EA Access and they do have roster updates that you can apply at the start. On that note, it looks really likely that FIFA 18 will come to EA Access in the next couple weeks, so if you have an Xbox and don't mind the subscr...

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

Supposedly, if Justus Sheffield is included, the Yankees could get him, which would be a surprise to all. That said, Yankees would be foolish to deal Justus Sheffield. Very curious what the package the Yankees offered was. I'm still betting on the D-backs here - their core is built for now, they ha...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Watching Mandzukic score after Pickford screamed at him while he was hurt on the ground, and then watching multiple English players get baited into wasting time with squabbles because they couldn't help but go on tilt was so delightful.

I haven't read the article to know if it's self-aware, but this is quite the headline/quote tandem they've chosen.
