Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

Since 2015, Russell is 12th among SS in WAR. Machado appears to be well on his way to another 6 WAR season this year. The unique thing about the Cubs is that they also have the 13th ranked SS in Baez. So even if Machado doesn't resign, you've got a replacement in Baez and the ability to insert anoth...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Are the Bears really going to use the #8 pick on a guard? Maybe I'm just meatballing here but that seems like a not so wise use of a pick that high. Here's my question to you. Would you draft Nelson if he could have the same trajectory as David DeCastro, but at LG? 2 1st team All Pro, 1 2nd team, a...

Re: 2018 Cubs Bold Predictions Thread

-Heyward is benched by June and both Almora and Happ gets over 500 plate appearances
-Alzolay makes at least one start for the team and is a Top 50 prospect by the end of the season
-Javy hits 35 homeruns and is an All Star starter
-Edwards leads the team in saves
-Hendricks leads the team in IP

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

OK, so we went into this with 51.7 mill to spend, counting draft picks....This includes Fuller, Bellamy, Meredith, and Callahan. Although, we may need to match offer sheets, which would increase their number. Supposedly we're looking at extending Goldman and Amos too, which would increase their num...

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

I know he's a guard, but I'd love to trade down and get Quentin Nelson. He's going to be an All-Pro the minute he steps on the field.

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

As an ND fan, I think Hiestand was far away the best coach on that staff. Olin Kreutz was on the Score last week and said Hiestand was the best OL coach he's ever had. I think it's a great hire.

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

Cubswin11 wrote:The part I don’t get about the rumor that it could be Cobb and Cain is what is Almora/Happ traded for then? A RP? A SP or 2 that’s like 2-4 years away (horsefeathers that, TINSTAAPP).

Why would they have to be traded? Almora continues to crush lefties and Happ takes on the Zobrist role.

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Fox Fired

I have no doubt that the Bears can find a good head coach on either side of the ball. I was always a big fan of Lovie as a HC. My preference for an offensive coach has more to do with the fact that I’d like to see Mitch stay in the same system for several years. I don’t think that happens with a def...

Nope. Mitch needs one offensive system to work under. Go with that guy as hc and you'll never lose him to a higher job.

Yep, this is the main reason I want an offensive-minded HC.

Not at all. Just pointing out that the Bears have been bad for 25 years, and that even includes a 9-year stint of decent football. Also, the Bears shouldn't have fired Lovie. Lovie is pretty much John Fox The players had a lot of respect for Lovie and always played hard for him. And they typically ...

Theo won't blink an eye on 40 per on Harper, nor should he. The opt outs involved will allow for him to get even more cash too. Theo ain't even truly trying to hide this either.
