Re: The Manny Machado Thread

Done deal. Judging by the reaction, doesn’t seem like it’s a really severe package that LA had to give up? Russell, Happ, Schwarber, and Monty. LOL. The writers in this industry are so horsefeathering bad haha, exactly what i was thinking. is russell along better than the package they got? probably...

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

Toronto isn't getting past Boston or Philadelphia going forward. My guess is he gets traded to the Lakers within the week. Toronto gets picks and youngsters, starts their rebuild. Is that because Kawhi will refuse to play there? Because otherwise I like this move for Toronto. Wasn’t the knock on th...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-16-18

He was already oldish when he broke out as a prospect and just suffered a season ending arm injury, but the absolute biggest reason this tarnishes his prospectness is he's lost a year of development. Wow, it's just one sentence, but you fit in three wrong statements- that's tough to do. 1- He wasn'...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-16-18

I don't agree with this at all. Any season-ending arm injury to a pitching arm is damning enough, with or without surgery, but then his performance when on the field was decidedly meh. It was only 8 starts, but he was striking out 2 guys less per 9 than last year in AA, while still throwing loads o...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Reading this article on the Ringer about trading for rentals, and this part gets a big eye roll from me: On the other hand, Torres has turned into the best-case-scenario version of himself—there’s no guarantee the Cubs could have turned him into the player he is now with the Yankees, who might be th...

I'm watching the live stream.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Man, 2017 was weird. It was. We had perfect health and returned Schwarber for a full season and we didn't play anywhere near our potential until after the ASB. The whole rotation got hurt at some point or was pitching through it (everyone had velo drops, Jake, Hendricks and Lackey all hit the DL, I...

Re: 2018 All Star Game

I'm kinda shocked this is the first all star game for Markakis. He had some great years for the Orioles. Looks like the Orioles had obligatory selections in 2008 (George Sherrill) and 2010 (Ty Wiggington). this must be what it's like to be a fan of another team and read "bryan lahair, 2012 all...

Using that link (https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/expected ... HC&min=100), we should have traded Baez two years ago because he was due for a big regression. Stats are fun and great for argumentative purposes, but there's a reason the game is played on the field. There was a way to say this witho...

yeah, not really a criticism. i don't expect a casual fan to have heard of it. but for a writer at a site that obsessively parses everything even tangentially related to Theo Epstein, it's pretty surprising.
