Re: ITT: Raisin & Tom/King Kong Obsess Over Shohei Otani

Is it a forgone conclusion that he’ll go to the team with the most IFA money to spend (ie Yankees)? If not, how would a deal be structured for a team like the Cubs?

Re: Offseason Transactions

I assume they would offer a few options - the more the Marlins eat of the contract, they can select 2-3 of the following players. The less the Marlins eat, they get 1-2, and so on.

Re: Offseason Transactions

The Giants made an offer for Stanton and are willing to take on a good chunk of his contract according to Rosenthal Given that the Cubs aren't getting him, I could definitely live with Stanton in San Francisco. Wait...you're gonna live with Stanton in SF? :) If he goes to StL, the contract would im...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

these are jesse rogers's opinions (as opposed to him reporting who tomorrow's starting pitcher is, which he can at least sort of do) so the correct way to look at them is to expect the opposite to be true Either way, its a very lackluster off season, in my mind. The main point was, what if that IS ...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

In a straight up trade scenario, why would the Cubs trade a cost controlled player from the roster (Happ) for Britton? Britton is arb eligible in 2018 and a FA in 2019.

I’ve read a couple articles that say something to the effect of: StL is willing to send their top pitching prospect (Weaver).

Well no horsefeathers - I would think it’ll be a minimum of 2 top pitching prospects + others.

It seems like JHey hits the ball hard and on the ground a lot. How hard is it for him to change the loft angle?

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

Crazy to think that Kershaw could opt out after next year (age 30). He's making $35M per. If he opts out, how much more could the guy want to make? Obviously a longer deal but still, these numbers are getting crazy, I sound like my grandpa.

My preference would be to swing for Stroman instead of Archer, although not sure if the BJ’s are ready to deal.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

More I think about it, the DIamondbacks really are a good match for us. Our most likely trade chip - Ian Happ. Diamodbacks likely need - Corner OF with some power (assuming they don't resign JD Martinez ... even if they did, they could still fit Happ in.) Our most pressing need - SP. Diamondbacks s...

Re: Theo's Presser

Would love to see some impact arms from within as either SP or RP - but if Tseng is it, well then.

Any chance of someone developing at a quicker rate than expected? Like to a couple of the college arms from the ‘16 draft?

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

The Thing is a DH. I think yesterday’s error punctuated the need for him to be moved sooner rather than later. Happ becomes the everyday LF next year.

I had a dream last night that the Cardinals signed Jake and then he started retweeting or responding positively to every Trump tweet. Ok it was a nightmare. But in all seriousness, who would Jake's suitors be? There's only a handful of teams that can probably pay him what he's asking. The Red Sox h...

Had the opportunity to meet James Elroy (LA Confidential, American Tabloid, Black Dahlia, etc...) at the Music Box Friday night. Spent a good 10 minutes just shooting the horsefeathers about books, movies, directors he's worked with. Totally cool.
