Re: Fishing for Trout 2021

As a point of reference, the 2021 rotation is currently Darvish, Montgomery, Graveman, Alzolay, and you (yes, you). There is a chance Lester is in there too. 25 mill option with 10 mill buyout, option vests with 200 IP in '20 or 400 IP in '19 and '20 Rizzo's is technically an option too, but they a...

Re: The Business of Baseball (AKA never side with management)

One of the most common arguments trotted out against things like raising the minimum wage. "Why should fast food workers make as much/almost as much/more than EMT's?!?" Not that their problem isn't with salaries in general being far too low/stagnant, and that this means that, yes, EMT's sh...

Re: 2019 HOF Class

Looking at Andruw Jones' stats is always wild; is there a more dramatic example of a truly great player hitting 30 and then just completely falling off of a cliff?

Re: The Business of Baseball (AKA never side with management)

It's a week to go until February, and 2 26-year old players with a cumulative 61 fWAR split almost equally between them are still unsigned.

Baseball is broken.

Re: Work Jerks

I dont think Sofa works directly for the gov't, I think he's a consultant and therefor not subject to the shutdown. Sadly, there are a bunch of contractors out of work while this is going on, and unlike those employed directly by the government, a ton of them won't have any backpay waiting for them.

Chatwood could turn into a non-trashbag human being version of Chapman and he'll still be one of the main reasons the Ricketts are cowards and denied us Harper or Machado. I hope he flunks out of baseball.
