Reivaj Garcia is 2/4 with a double so far. Erling Moreno: 4.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K, 8-1 GO-FO.


I guess that's progress for Albertos. What injury was Moreno dealing with?

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

Am I the only one completely incapable of remembering the difference between Hatch and Lange? Like I know Hatch was the OSU 3rd rounder and Lange the LSU guy, but their profiles are similar enough that every time I read something about one of them I never internalize it as them specifically. Lange ...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

Both Cease and Estrada were 6th-round picks. Maybe this will be the round? D.J. Wilson was 4th round, he's the only other million-dollar superslot I can recall. (Well, obviously Sands and Steele, too...) The 7-figure bonus overslots under this regime were Underwood in the 2nd round in 2012; Sands (...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

I would add that Theo and Co., along with his branches, often look for a certain type/mold. For lack of better way of saying it, they look for the next Ellsbury (certainly, one can say the next Betts) and Pedroia, and while there is value in that, there's also a risk of getting too locked in on a t...

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: 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...

Santana for Salazar or Tehran I bet

Salazar would make a lot of sense for both sides.

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.

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.

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.
