Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

I'd honestly rather trade Jeimer to bring Hammel back than do anything involving Eloy that isn't a Archer package. Maybe I'm seriously overvaluing him, but I'm having a hard time coming up with anyone aside from Archer and Stroman (of even remotely plausible trade options) that I'd be interested in...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

That's a ridiculous package to give up for deGrom Why is that? People are talking about giving up Eloy in a Sonny Gray package here. You don't think that's 1 for 1, do you? Since 2014, Gray has thrown 601 innings, to 568 for deGrom. Gray has been worth 8.5/8.7 WAR between FG and BR. DeGrom is at 13...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

The Mets are selling. I saw Ryan Davis bring up deGrom and wondered what it'd take to get him.....He didn't think he'd actually be available, but threw out Eloy, Cease, Candelario, and one other guy(unnamed) as a fictitional package....Personally, I doubt that'd come close honestly, since there's n...

Re: Bulls offseason

We weren't competing for a title within the next two years, under any circumstance. At that point, you'd be paying Jimmy a super max deal and making it even harder to truly compete. I think this path is the one likelier to get us into contention quicker, acknowledging that NEITHER is likily to get ...

Re: Bulls offseason

I've just been dead set on getting the rebuild started. It truly doesn't bother me that the alternative to what happened, was watching another .500ish team slug thru another season. That was not the alternative though, and I'm not quite sure why you, and people like David Haugh, are ignoring that f...

Re: Bulls offseason

Come on, the package isn't great. But, its not a flaming pile of garbage. If it PROVES to be, then fine. But, its not right now. There's possibilities with them. And as much as I hate Rose, he won a horsefeathering MVP. Jimmy is NOT the best Bull since Mike and Scottie. The one thing I honestly don...

Re: Bulls offseason

This I'll actually debate, without conceding I'm auto-wrong lol. We very well MAY have overvalued Jimmy. Again, my honest guess is we chose the wrong deal to accept. But, at mid season, or after the season, I honestly doubt we'd have received THIS much. And I'm OK with moving him now, instead of an...

Re: Bulls offseason

I just don't get applauding them for "picking a direction" when literally the first step they took in that direction, they fell flat and their face and then horsefeathers all over themselves while they were still laying on the ground. Good job?

Re: Bulls offseason

It's seriously like the Cubs pulling off a successful rebuild with the smartest guy in the sport overseeing it has led people to believe that, for the Bulls and Bears, it's as easy as getting rid of all of your good players and losing for a few years.

Re: Bulls offseason

When you have a front office like Theo and Jed, you can usually trust that when a deal is made, it was the best deal out there to be made. You cannot do the same with GarPax. They haven't earned that benefit of the doubt in terms of trade negotiations or player evaluations. You can't just look at th...

Re: Bulls offseason

They chose a direction. I like that. LaVine will be around long term. I wanted more. Don't get me wrong. I think we probably overvalued Jimmy. Or GarPax took an offer that we think was less than some other ones. Which wouldn't surprise me. Now, fire GarPax. This is such a confounding post. Man, you...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Gray's peripherals are basically exactly in line with his 2015 and prior, the biggest difference is that he has one of the worst strand rates in baseball, a problem he didn't have in the past and is almost certainly due to his defense, which is worst in MLB in UZR by a large margin: http://www.fang...

I feel really ashamed I even said it. I take it all back. Eloy is going to be all the best parts of Stanton, Cabrera, Bryant and what Soler was supposed to be.

I'm sorry, Eloy!
