I don't remember who here voiced the "he's just being a centrist in the Dem primary. He'll move to the left in the general" idea, but when I read it, I snorted noodles out of my nose, had to go to the restroom to recover, and forgot to respond with a snarky gif. I'm tickled by the idea th...

I think that's a pretty poor recollection of what I've said.

Health care and defense spending. And Pete's still in the BS candidate phase where he should be blowing smoke up everyone's ass, and he doesn't even bother with that sometimes.

NOBODY HERE IS SAYING BUTTIGIEG IS A 2019 REPUBLICAN. By almost any reasonable metric you can find his ideologies and rhetoric plant him ever so slightly Left of Center.

Sofa, total [expletive], but compliments on the hyperbole. I’m not defending Mayor Pete outside of the fact I’d happily vote for him in the general.

Re: Beer Thread 2.0

My wife just came back from a NovemBeard charity event where she bought $40 of raffle tickets and won a $500 box of stuff. It was mostly shaving-related items (a million of them), but there was also beer: 1 bottle of Bourbon County 2018 1 bottle of Bourbon County 2019 1 bottle of Rhinegeist Limited...

So they could be in trouble over the middle.

Roquan is out for the game and Kwiatkowski just hobbled off the field after that last play.

I turn it on and the first thing I see is an interception at the goal line on a terrible throw.

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

Bowden recommends a move for the Cubs during the winter meetings: Trade outfielder Brennen Davis and right-handed pitcher Cory Abbott to the Royals in exchange for second baseman/outfielder Whit Merrifield. The Cubs are in dire need of a leadoff hitter and Merrifield could fit in nicely. Merrifield,...

Out of today's non-tenders, I'd be interested in: Taijuan Walker \ Kevin Gausman - Any of them that will sign a one year pillow contract (or friendly contract) to re-establish value Blake Treinen / Cesar Hernandez - compete for the second base job / play solid bench role James Hoyt - I think he'd be...

Still, it's interesting that they brought in the guy that helped JTR, though. Not sure if that says anything about their intentions with Willson or not.

It is bad. BP, Fangraphs, Statcorner 2017: -3, -9, +4 2018: -18, -18, -13 2019: -9, -9, +4 I would wager the depth of his 2018 struggles has more to do with being overused, but he is undoubtedly well below average.

Willson's Framing

Is it really that bad? I know that BP has him rated awfully. But by Statcorner he's...good in 2019. The methods for evaluation vary wildly, but Statcorner's is actually fairly straightforward. Here are the factors: - number of pitches called balls that statcast says are strikes (strikes gained) - nu...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

I still don't get how this adds up at all: - He's supposedly the perfect fit for the Cubs - He's supposedly a CF option at a time when the league's short on CF options as a whole (47 games there in the MLs btw, 31 in 2020) - Even if not a full time CF, he's an upgrade at 2B for sure - I'll take a w...

https://twitter.com/BleacherNation/statuses/1198271802113441792 He really is an absolutely perfect fit for the roster. The problem is paying a price reflective of what he actually is rather than what the Royals want to pretend he is. No thanks. If he has a .310 BABIP instead of .350, he's a below a...
