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

So what are we looking at here? He was supposedly down to 6 teams.....Yankees, Cubs, Twins, Astros, Rangers, and someone else. Many who think its the Dodgers..... Well, the Rangers have came out and said they don't see themselves making a splashy move at this stage. The Astros traded for Cole. They'...

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

Parker is an expiring and we could buy him out and he could even go back there, I guess...... I think there is a rule against this now. I kind of wondered about that. Still, they could send Rudy Gay(expiring), who's out for a few more were, plus a scrub or two, and still be set up as the team we wo...

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

Kawhi is out indefinitely, Gay is out thru January and the Spurs have the toughest remaining schedule in the NBA. Parker is an expiring and we could buy him out and he could even go back there, I guess..... But, Parker and their 1st for Mirotic and Zipser seems like something that ought to be talked...

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

I was hoping Niko would be gone on the 15th. But, maybe the offers aren't there yet? No idea what to think about taking on longterm money in a Niko deal or not, at this point. You have to weigh that and whatever added value to the pick you'd be getting, versus having the cap space to add FA's next y...

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. Ayton Bagley Doncic Young Porter Bamba Jackson Mikal Bridges Miles Bridges Sexton Knox Carter That's my personal cutoff. I'm not sure what to do ...

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.
