Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

It makes perfect sense for a major market team to give him a 6 or 7 year offer. It keeps the AAV down, for LT purposes and you can litter it with opt outs, to where he may take another shot at FA anyway. And the back end of the deal will happen during the next CBA, which will likely see a dramatic ...

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

Seems like a perfect draft to trade down. Very few WR or OT's going in the first round in the mocks I've read. None really jump out at #8 while there should be plenty of teams willing to move up to that spot. Potenetial QB needy teams CLE (two picks) NYG DEN NYJ ------- MIA ARI BUF JAX 1st round po...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

Fair enough. A player who has the chance to make the All-Star Game a few times/make the All-NBA team (any of them) and be considered potentially a top 20-25 player in the league. Those players are hard to find, but they usually are top draft picks. You can occasionally get lucky and find them later...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

I don't think you're getting an impact player picking 6th or 7th this year. A decent player maybe, but we need impact players to really improve and contend down the road. The top tier in this draft is only 4 or 5 players deep (M. Bagley III, D. Ayton, L. Doncic, M. Bamba, and maybe M. Porter Jr.) a...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

Theyll finish like 10th. They're just gonna have to give plenty of playing time to that 10th pick so that he, expiring Lopez, lotto protected '19 pick and Portis or Valentine actually look like a good deal for disgruntled star player next deadline. That's the path. Or they make the playoffs and act...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

They’re “only” 4 losses off the most losses and 2 off of being inside the top 4-5 most losses. Let’s settle down here a bit guys. They are 7 games back in the L column of the playoffs, that isn’t gonna happen. While exciting and young this roster has potential to only win 12ish more games the rest ...

I've talked myself into being ok with picking top 12. I kind of doubt we even accomplish that though. And yeah, being the Bulls they'll miss the playoffs.

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

Damn, a real W. Fun game, Lauri and Dunn looked good, so did LaVine.

Even if they deal Niko quick, I don't see top 6 happening, without help from the lotto. This team isn't half bad and they'll get much better soon.

Time to start paying attention to Jackson and the two Bridges, in the draft.

Re: Offseason Transactions

Given that the twins are a team that’s been mentioned in relation to Darvish all offseason, does this do anything to decrease their likelihood of signing him? $8.5 million a year isn’t a small amount for teamlike the twins. And yeah, I really liked Reed as an option for us, but it seems like the Cu...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Sounds like a starting pitcher is all we're really looking for now. If that's the case, I really want Darvish even more than before. If it takes 6/150, so be it. Give him a couple of opt out and be done with it.

Re: Cubs arbitration eligibles

OK, so 2.25 means 150k versus 200k. That makes sense. That said, I guess that number goes up every time during the season a guy goes on the DL and a guy comes up. So, maybe we need to save a bit more just for those occurrences? Cobb at a 15 mill AAV and a low rent backup C seems the most likely sce...
