Re: Jake Arrieta Close to Signing with the Phillies

The amount determines the round. If it's over 50 million it's the comp round between round 1 and 2, less than that it's the comp round between rounds 2 and 3. It's the approximate difference in getting pick 33 or 73. Aren’t they receiving the 75th pick (or around that) for Davis, who signed for ove...

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

Eh, I need to watch it before I say the guy is awful. Might have been trying to work on some pitches or isn't up to full speed yet. I hope he sucks and the Cubs torch him the first chance we get. Yeah it’s ST and his first start so stats are mostly meaningless but that’s a rough debut for a guy who...

Re: Cubs open 2018 in Miami

I’m thinking of heading down for the opening series. Anyone have experience going to the new Marlins stadium? Recommendations on hotels around the stadium, if any? Will I need to rent a car or would you recommend it? I need to plan something to get out of this cold and am thinking of using the open...

Re: It turns out the real Yu Darvish was the friends we made in this thread

Word from the Darvish camp is that he’s holding out for a similar contract that Jimmy G got from the Niners 5/$137.5.

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

I know you're not advocating that he adopt that strategy but man, that seems awfully risky for a dude who's had TJ surgery... Also, count me in the camp that would be totally fine with 5/$125 or whatever. And while I'd obviously prefer not giving a 6-year contract to a 31 year old with a not-100%-c...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

I think you have more teams than normal that are probably outside their competitive windows this year. Couple that with multiple big spending teams apparently trying to get below the luxury tax, and a fairly underwhelming FA class overall followed by a very talented class. I really think in today’s...

Here's a list of the 2018 (as of 11/17) small market teams receiving competitive balance picks. Revenue is a factor in determining who makes the list. How in the hell does StL make the list? They proudly boast attendance of 3M+ every year, they make a ton on merchandising and have fielded a competit...

Re: Offseason Transactions

The Brewers sources guy says Santana to an AL team as soon as tomorrow. I’d guess Odorizzi, Fulmer, Salazar or Duffy for major league arms. He’s not nearly enough for Archer. Or else he’s traded off for prospects to replenish the Yelich trade a bit then they sign Cobb/Lynn/Jake I agree Santana’s no...

Keith Stone's latest: I ran numbers this morning with arbitration estimates. Their payroll at this point is around 160, and they don't have a 5th starter yet(unless they roll montgomery). Also I'm not sure their CF plan, maybe they roll Happ/Almora/Heyward in CF/RF...not sure. If they add Darvish t...

They think Pham is the second coming of Jesus. Ozuna/Pham/Dexter is their OF

Dexter’s arm in CF was weak and can only be worse in RF.
