Re: Is there a sports cards discussion?

Someday I'm going to pay for college with the metric ton of late 80's and early 90's cards I have somewhere at my parents' house! Surely they've done nothing but explode in value, right? That Sam Horn 88 Topps exploded. As did the Matt Nokes Trophy card. And of course, the Vicente Palacios Rated Ro...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

Honestly, we'll just have to agree to disagree. I don't look at Q and Schwarber as special value. Schwarber probably has the value of a top 50ish prospect, in my mind. And if I'm off, I think I'm on the high end. Q? I'd be surprised if we could get a top 100 for him. Top 100-150 lead guy, is what h...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

I’d take Newcomb/Inciarte/Anderson easily over the Cubs’ offer there, but how many teams have that lying around? Are the Braves in a rush to add a 33 YO starter? I think the Cubs are way more likely to offer the proposed package than the Braves are. There's not MANY teams, with that type of currenc...

1) I don't think they'll actually deal him. We operate like when we hear WE need to shave money, it's nonsense, but when others do, it's just true. Again, just don't think they'll do it. 2) I don't think percentages show that top end prospects failure rates are THAT high at all. And I do think they'...

Kluber is INSANELY good. The Indians, if they traded him, would receive an absolute HAUL. His last 5 seasons? Over 200 innings each year. 31 fWAR. Seriously, THIRTY ONE. 32.6 bWAR. I mean....... horsefeathers lol. The Indians can and would do much better than anything we've got to offer, that starts...

Maybe it's delusion, but the more I think about this(TT's post seriously helped), I just can't see us not being seriously involved. There's obviously no guarantee we get him...... But yeah, I can absolutely see us acting like we need to pare payroll some. If we tried to dump Duensing, Kintzler, Chat...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

Honestly, I'd LOVE to give him a 15 year contract, with an old out EVERY year during years 6-15. OK, this is exactly what I'm talking about, but whatever I'm not gonna spend all offseason having this argument. We need Bryce Harper because he's awesome and figuring out what he's worth or how we get ...

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

This team is going to wind up winning some games. They need to lose as much as possible thru the end of the year. Because I think they'll play close to .500, from January on, if they get the rest of the year to have LaVine, Carter, Lauri, and Dunn mesh..... I want as much of a shot as possible at lu...

Honestly the more I see this posted by so many people the more convinced I am that this is what the Cubs want out there


It might be Theo putting it out there, hoping to get Ricketts to change his mind, because everyone's pissed.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

If we have to skimp somewhere in order to get Bryce, my vote is for it to be the pen. I think that between dealing Happ or Schwarber for a good pen arm and using our group of Webster, Maples, Norwood, Alzolay, Mekkes, and others- that we'd find a serviceable group. And address it at the deadline, if...

Morosi's column this morning literally mentioned us being more enamored with future FA classes, and brought up Arenado specifically.

Next year's class is the following position players..... Goldy-32 Gennett-30 Bogaerts-27 Gregorius-30 Arenado-29 Rendon-30 Ozuna-29 Hicks-30 Castellanos-28 Puig-29 And MAYBE JD opts out of 3/62 at age 32...... So, what the horsefeathers are we waiting on?

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

All of Theo's prior comments have alluded to having funds available for this exact situation. If they don't have them now, I'm damn near certain that Theo got blindsided by Ricketts at the end of the season org meetings, where they discuss budget and all that stuff.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I don't think there's any chance we go to the 250's. Honestly, I think it's extremely likely we stay under the 246 top tier. In fact, I agree we may have 2 separate payroll areas too. 246 or under with Bryce, 226 or under without him. But, I don't think there's any chance we wind up in the 250's. If...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I just listened to the Finfer/Sharma/Greenberg podcast. They're definitely not painting a pretty picture about this offseason. That said, we'll hear from Theo at the GM Meetings next week. That's when we'll know whether we've got the ability to get him or not. Personally, I'm starting to think that ...
