It kind of gives me hope for a major move honestly....MLB looks at him like that, Law looks at Alzolay as a top 60ish type.....If a team we're trying to deal with thinks that way, we can really still get something fun.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Yeah, you can go over on occasion. The issue I'd wonder about is if they'd actually make moves, kind of counting on Heyward to opt out. Doesn't seem like their MO. As for Verlander, getting the Tigers to pay down some money erases my concern on his deal anyway. I'm fairly confident the FO isn't goin...

Might he be a candidate for an early extension?


Didn't they try in the offseason? And he preferred playing it out?

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-23-17

Won't nitpick much from TT, but I think Steele has had a very solid year and raised his profile a good bit. Crawford actually said he's still got mid rotation upside. Robinson has a Ryan Williams feel to me. And if Williams had stayed healthy, he'd likely be logging big league innings currently for ...

Re: Bulls offseason

Its great he wanted to come to Chicago. And yeah, if we could have added him, I'd have been against rebuilding too.....

Slight issue though.....The Bulls didn't have jack horsefeathers to trade for him.

Keith Law: It’ll really depend more on the secondary stuff than on performance. Preston: What’s a realistic return for the Cubs if Candelario is the lead to a package of prospects? Certainly not high-impact RP like Britton, right? Keith Law: I don’t think so, but I’ve always been a little bearish on...

Yeah, the systems at the point where you might as well just say, take any group of 2,3,4, or 5 and see what the best guy you can get in each scenario and make the best deal accordingly.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

I know i don't know the exacts of how to calculate this, not sure if any of us do.....But, KB has Boras, a ROY award, an MVP award, and a ring(which doesn't matter, but still).

I'm guessing 12, because I'll be shocked if he's not the highest paid 1st year arb guy in history.

Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors

Expecting a team to give Stanton, a guy who's literally played more than 123 games TWICE in 6 full seasons , a contract more than 7/208, for his 31-37 year old seasons is also one of the worst ideas in the history of the board. You can't remotely expect him to opt out of that . The average Giancarl...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

30M was what I was saying for Darvish alone, Q and Teheran are locked in at 8.85 and 8 respectively. Bryant + Russell + Hendricks are all arb 1, Bryant is the only one with a chance at 7 million. This year's payroll isn't a hard ceiling either. I'm not saying they'd fit it in with 15 million to spa...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

They didn't give Montgomery, Butler, Kelly, etc a rotation spot this spring, and if they kick Montgomery out of the rotation for Hendricks, then their best bet from the internal options won't be likely to go a full SP's workload. Quintana and Teheran combined cost about as much as Lackey+Anderson, ...

Realistically, we have room to add one MAJOR starting pitcher between now and Opening Day next year. We've got Lester, Quintana, and Hendricks written in ink. One of Monty, Butler, or any other "upside" play, ala Gausman, or those types, will be our 5th, with others providing depth..... S...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-17-17

If I had to put out a prediction on him, I'd veer towards up and down guy. His stuff just isn't special in any way. But, if his FB command improves enough, I'd turn my guess into he's a guy that sticks in MLB long enough to at least hit his arb years and make some money.
