Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

Theo is very smart, but he's also a risk-taker. I'm sure he's thinking about some way to fleece Baltimore again lol. Oh for sure. He's going to be in on Machado, as he should be. But I know he won't do anything as stupid as Baez or Russell + Monty for a rental. Yeah, I'm okay with giving up Monty +...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

I like Bote and would like to keep him, but I honestly wonder if the Orioles would really like him? He can play all over the IF (probably some OF too), is cheap and seems like he could be a second division starter for them. They lose Machado this year and Schoop is a FA after next year so they have...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

I'm not arguing what the value of IFA money has been, in the past. This is a different scenario. Last year, you had multiple teams pursuing Martinez. But, there were multiple teams that had money left over and also multiple teams that were willing to trade off money. If it's true that all teams have...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

Yeah, they're dumb. Not sure if you can actually pay money for IFA dollars or not. But, the fear is that even the light bulb will/has already clicked, because even they'll be like "Wow, there's been 22 teams wanting our IFA money, I bet we can get someone to give us something good!" Becaus...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

There's probably a team of two out there that haven't committed their entire budget, or even extremely close to it..... But, it's definitely possible all teams are fairly close. Making it conceivable that if a team could trade for the max they can get from the O's, it's land them Mesa AND Rodriguez....

I think at this point, this is my list.....

Abbott goes 6 2 0 0 2 11. He's at 95 pitches, so I'm guessing he's done.

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

I think Ayton is the best player in the draft, but I do think Bagley is an All Star. 7 seems ideal for them to trade down to, if they want Mikal Bridges. Taking on Parson's deal and giving us 32 is my hope for the trade. But, I only do it for Bagley and maybe Doncic. Otherwise, I will roll the dice ...

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

According to NBADraft.Net, we're the landing spot for Chandler Hutchison at 22 and the Lakers are the same for Mitchell Robinson, at 25. Both p!ayers decided against working out at the combine, indicating they had a guarantee in place.

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

any interesting draft and stash guys projected to be available around 22? the bulls have had some success with that approach in recent-ish years with Asik and Mirotic. There's been talk of Dzanan Musa staying overseas for a year. He potentially is worth taking at 22. I'm a big fan of Isaac Bonga, b...

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

Take on Parsons deal. He's got 2/50 left on it. That gets you from 7 to 4, plus the 32nd pick, and maybe a protected future 1st as well. Are they severely up against the luxury tax or something? They’re about $15-16 mil under but I bet they’d entertain getting out of his garbage deal and dumping a ...

If the Bulls are confident in Porter's health and worry about him not making it to 7, swapping 4 and 7 seems possible. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2776700-2018-nba-draft-rumors-grizzlies-open-to-trading-no-4-overall-pick I don't know enough about the NBA draft pick values to know what they ...

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

Any 20-40 sleepers you guys like? Hate the guy's guts, but I actually think Grayson Allen could be a decent pick at 22. He's a guy that should be able to crack a rotation as a rookie, and can shoot the ball or do some slashing. May be a similar player to what the Bulls were hoping McDermott would b...

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

Stay put. And add at least a 2nd Rounder to it. Picks 20-40 are basically the same caliber guy in this draft. Might as well add to your chances. And you can buy a 2nd from someone obviously and use the "currency" we earned lastyear, by selling ours off lol.

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

Duquette said today or yesterday, that they'd wait until after Memorial Day to decide what to do. And he pondered the question of "Do you trade a guy who may be having a Triple Crown Year?"

in today's day and age, I don't know how ANYONE can support the Orioles.

Uh, I responded to what you SAID. YOU SAID they hadn't spent big on pitching . Concepcion was 6 mill. Albertos got 1.5 which was definitely a top 3-5 bonus that year for pitching.
