Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

My guess is Roederer comes in at a mill. Franklin costs 400k or so. Leaves us about 600k to throw towards Thompson, Pagan, Parker, and anyone else we've got to give over 125k to.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-22-18

I want Robinson in AAA right now. Hell, I'd give him the ML start this weekend, even though I guess Mills gets it.

Marquez and Abbott are the 2 guys I'm most interested in, from the lower levels.

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

Not that either is a great comp, but if I'm comparing WCJ to a former Duke/Bulls guy, I'd say he's closer to Brand, than Boozer.

That said, neither are great comps. But, Carter can become an excellent player in the NBA.

Damn, that pipeline busted. At least for now. I REALLY wish we knew what happened with Serrano now.

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

The fact they're doing a press conference NOW, instead of trying to add a 2nd rounder, when plenty of solid players are still out there, pisses me off to no end.

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

Hutchison at 22, as expected.

Carter and Hutchison ain't exciting, but it's not bad at all.

Can't believe Robert Williams is still out there.

Would love to see the Bulls surprise us and trade back into the 30-40 range.

I've seen a report today that said Porter taking the entire 2018-2019 season off would be the most beneficial thing for him to do.

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

Carter is a great FIT for the Bulls. He'll go well with Lauri. Still...... Do something fun. Trade down.

Or trade up from 22. Just do something fun dammit.

Oh well, Orlando is taking Bamba. If the Clippers would deal 12 and 13 for 7, I'd do it at this point.

Chicago has also been active in lottery trade talks and could move up from no. 7, as mentioned above. Multiple sources have said that the Bulls could be looking to add a second lottery pick, too. The Sixers’ no. 10 selection was floated as a possibility. From Kevin O'Connor's article just now. Inte...

Do we have any scouting info on the Puero Rican kid in round 13? "One of the players who showed off some of the loudest tools of the day was impressive center fielder Ezequiel Pagan (2018, Guayanilla, Puerto Rico) for TSD Black. Pagan has a lean, high-waisted frame with long limbs and projecti...

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

My dream scenario tomorrow, no shot at it happening.....

7) Bamba
Trade 22 and Valentine for 14 and Faried.
14) Have Knox or Miles Bridges sitting there to take.
Trade future 2nd or even 2 of them to move back into 30-40 range
Draft Bruce Brown, Khyri Thomas, or preferrably Jakob Evans with the pick.

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

Reading a bunch of pre draft gossip saying MPJ and Trae are dropping, with Carter and Gilgeous-Alexander moving up. Bamba reiterated today he's got tons of interest in us.

This is going to be fun. From 2 on, this is an absolute crapshoot.

Complete dream scenario, trade Portis, 22, next year's top 1 protected 1st for Parsons and 4.

Draft Bamba at 4, MPJ at 7.

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

The issue is this: Bamba, who I love, or Porter, who I'd be perfectly happy with, could be there at 7. In fact, I figure one of them will be. So, do you trade up anyway? I don't think so. Taking on 2 years of Chandler Parsons at 25 mill each season? No. Just no. Especially not if you ALSO are sendin...
