Re: Regular Season Rumors

https://sports.yahoo.com/marcus-stroman-blue-jays-f-221800191.html Steve Buffery of the Toronto Sun reports that while Stroman was initially cool, calm, and collected when speaking to the media after the game, he eventually snapped. Stroman was asked by a reporter about breaking into professional b...

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

I really like this deal for the Bulls, especially with the team option in year 2. We won't be able to stop anybody but the team should be pretty entertaining. Yeah, that’s why I still see this as a 35 win team. Defense will be atrocious. I’m hating the Lavine deal more and more now. He’s going to e...

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

Shot distribution is going to be interesting. Lauri should be the first option, but LaVine and Parker are certainly getting their shots too. I think Dunn needs to be the guy taking a bit on attempts. Minutes distribution up front will be interesting too. No idea how they'll split minutes between WCJ...

He can't defend the 3, paired with LaVine, ho!y horsefeathers the wing D is going to be awful. He IS talented, but this seems awfully ...

I remember a year or two back, that Cameron or Sullivan had said that Javy's extra stuff(tags, slides) probably equaled about another .5 WAR.

Re: Albert Amora Jr

I actually agree about the over-valued thing. It's not 2005 anymore, if his BABIP is really just a mirage that's not fooling anybody in the game to give up excess value for him. There are no dumb FO's anymore except maybe Colorado. Baltimore. Unless you didn't list them because dumb is way too posi...

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

I'm terrible with NBA contract knowledge but is this basically like "waiving" Grant for 1.7M instead of his 3.7M owed? You're saving his entire salary, since you're waiving this Stone guy. You're freeing up a roster spot. And you're not keeping Grant until his RFA season next year. Grante...

Summer League and all the caveats..... But, Carter was impressive. Much more athletic than he's been given credit for. Hutchison can get to the rim too.

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

I think I want him back at 4/80. Reasons as follows..... 1) He's got upside, but is far away from it. So, he's technically helping the tank for another year or two. 2) Cap goes up 9 mill per each of the next 2 years. You'll still have the ability to add 2 max guys, even with this, with a bit of mane...

Sean Rodriguez is playing 3B for the Indy Indians tonight and so far has struck out on 3 pitches and had a soft line drive bounce off his glove and I am having a lot of fun laughing very loudly at him. Add on a throwing error. Best game ever. I'll bet you he's teaching Beating the horsefeathers Out...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

Stewart's wrist injury complicated things with him. The Braves offered at least 40% of slot, but they definitely were undercutting him. Still, not sure how you pass it up.

Tim, there's other teams in baseball that would like to add. There's not a team out there that's contending, that's not going to be interested in some of these guys.

Re: Midseason Assessment (aka - what do we need at the deadline?)

Theo came out today and said we're not looking for hitting. Nothing's imminent and they're still expecting most improvement to come from within, for pitching. I think they'll add 2 guys, but both just depth types. Maybe the pen arm is solid, there's lots of them out there.
