Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

Longenhagen schmongenhagen, see that in 5 years I guess we'll see. But, Fujinami walked 6.9/9 this year, his K's dropped to 6.3/9 for 9.4/9 and he was even sent down to their minors this year at some point. Definite step backwards from a guy that wasn't known for having control or command to begin ...

Re: Cubs 40-Man Roster Transactions and Discussions

I don't think anyone's actually necessary, outside of Alzolay and de la Cruz. My guess is Bote gets added with them.

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

Longenhagen says Fujinami is a reliever, when and if he comes over. Kikuchi is the best pitching prospect over there, after Ohtani, at this point.

Yeah, but I'm OK with them milking this as long as possible lol. I am looking forward to seeing him play though.

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

I guess its possible. I just doubt they'd give a break on Colome's price though. They supposedly want to drop 15 mill off their payroll. They've got a bunch of ways to get there. In Ramos' case, I'd guess they'd hold him until a contenders C got hurt and suck whatever bit of value he's got, that wa...

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

Markkanen wasn't involved much in the second half, but finished with 16 and 7. Dunn had a hell of a game, going 22, 5, and 7. Only 1 TO too. He's probably going to flash enough to where he could be a low end starting PG. I guess there's a slight hope he can be more than that, at this point. But, the...

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

From a "everyone needs young pitching" standpoint....Then fine, Tampa does too. But, if they deal Archer, they're still set up with Odorizzi, Faria, Andriese, Honeywell, and Snell. With Cabrera, Schultz, Yarbrough, and DeLeon all relatively close or ready to contribute. That's much, much, ...

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

So the Bulls are doing pretty well in the L column of the NBA standings. Only Dallas has a worse record than us right now. I can't tell if Dallas is genuinely this bad or is tanking hard? I'm pretty sure they're tanking because M. Cuban admitted that's what they would try to do once they became med...

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

Or Reyes. Same thing. There's not many elite pitching prospects out there right now. The Braves could quantity their way there, but I doubt AA is going to make that type of move yet.

I think if Archer gets dealt, we're in a damn good position.

For toonsterwu or anyone else who follows other teams' systems, do you think the presence of Adames would affect how the Rays view Russell, or would they fit well together up the middle? Also I know Archer will make more than Russell the next few years but is it possible Addison would catch or surp...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

So, Rosenthal says they ARE going to lose prospects, as PART of the punishment. They'll be treated with the same rules as if they were first on the market. Teams will bid accordingly. But, since its likely they'll get to keep their first bonuses, I'm just not sure they'd wait or not, until the next ...

What IS fun though, with the new CBA......Is that its capped, but you can trade for up to 75% more than your budget for the next 2 years, then 60% after that...... So, you're ABLE to always be in the top tier of spending teams, if you want to be. Especially since there's only 3 tiers of initial mone...

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

I am the walrus: Agree or not? The Cubs will likely sign a lower FA pitcher (Cobb), sign a lower end closer (Reed), sign a middle rp (Mcgee) or two, send a regular (Happ) for a fairly high ceiling young pitcher and spend around $30M of there $70 salary they have to spend. 12:56 Dave Cameron: I think...

Very interesting. Puts another guy on the market. No idea if he'll wait til the next class, take a smaller bonus from the Twins, or what.....

I gotta wonder if the Twins did this to give them a slight shot at Ohtani.

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

Either way, its a very lackluster off season, in my mind. The main point was, what if that IS our off season? Its not beyond the realm of possibility, with no trades and looking towards the 2018 class. I'd be okay with it, tbh. I'd make some different choices after Cobb, but I think that still puts...
