Re: RE: Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-26-17

Maples goes 1 0 0 0 1 2 What is Maples' stuff like these days? Is he actually a "thing" again as a potentially useful MLB reliever? Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk Yeah, he is. He's throwing a very heavy 94-95, with a very solid curve. He never did develop a third pitch, but he's got hi...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-26-17

I don't think I've seen anything remotely negative about his glove, its just whether he'll get to enough balls, if he fills out even more. With his arm, I'd say 3B would be his spot, if he can't get to enough at SS.

Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors



Rosscup dealt to Rockies, for Matt Carasiti, a RHP that's not on the 40 man. Having a solid year in AAA, was out righted after a horrible major league call up in 2016.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-26-17

That position player group looks pretty weak to me. You've got Eloy, and then the only ones currently on a trajectory to be an MLB starter are Candelario and Burks. It's palatable because Eloy is a superprospect and there's already a team full of under 25s at the MLB level, but the position player ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-26-17

I don't see Little or Lange making any top 100 lists THIS year. They were drafted in the range they were expected to be and I doubt either gets many(any?) innings this year. And only 12-15 draftees are usually included in rankings. They'll certainly have their chances moving forward though. Cease wi...

Re: Bulls offseason

What's this taking on bad contracts strategy all about? Like the Nets did where you take on a bad deal like Mozgov that is coupled with a young asset like Russell? Yeah, that's the general idea. Add young guys or picks, by taking on bad contracts and freeing up cap space for teams trying to contend...

Re: Bulls offseason

He's coming off a knee injury, whatever value he has is largely based on his athleticism and also the cap just shrunk more than people thought it would. Committing 1/5 of your cap to Zach horsefeathering Lavine is horsefeathering stupid. Aren't you a Lakers fan? You just gave one fifth of your cap ...

Re: Bulls offseason

He's a horrifically, awful defender too by almost all accounts and they are going to have to decide to give him like 3-4 years at $12 mil+ a year after the season as well. Holy horsefeathers, do you look at NBA contracts? What the hells wrong with giving him THAT lol? He's coming off a knee injury,...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

The reason I even brought deGrom up was he obviously is a very good pitcher. Hell, he's been better than Archer(albeit not as healthy and much more of a risk)and much better than Gray. I was debating whether its worth giving up THAT package for him, because I don't think that package comes even remo...

Going forward, whats expected in the off season now? I saw a rumor we may cut Rondo and then try to resign him lol. Hopefully that's complete BS.
