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

how does Scooter keep Almora off the roster? Only way I can see is if they flex Nico to be the RH CF option, but that seems really unlikely compared to just letting Nico get more AAA playing time. Yeah I don’t see how Scooter knocks Almora off the roster unless they feel really good about Nico bein...

Re: NL DH by 2021?

Pitchers don't suck at hitting because they don't work on it enough, they suck at it because hitting his hard and pitching gets better and better. Scrappy McJunkball could scratch out a hit or two against the scrubs that pitched in yesteryear, not because he put in the time and effort. Except that ...

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

So the plan seems to be "find guys that had a good season a couple years ago but sucked or were injured more recently and sign for a bare bones price and hope that they find their previous form" I've liked Scooter as a target all offseason. He was really good at the plate in each of his p...

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

I'll say this, but I really hate saying it...If they've only got a couple million to spend, we're probably better off adding to the bullpen than upgrading from Almora to Pillar. But I really wish we had non-tendered Almora and invested his $1.8M elsewhere. I think there are a variety of AAAA guys a...

plot hole I'd pay good money to never ever hear this phrase again.

Re: Cubs sign Jason Adam

Quantity instead of quality doesn't necessarily translate into a solid bullpen. How do you know that it is "instead of"? Well we certainly have the "quantity" part covered, but the "quality" part has yet to be proven. Signing a bunch of castoffs from other teams doesn'...

Re: Cubs sign Jason Adam

Minor league/major league contract jokes aside, we are going to have a solid bullpen this year with the way we’ve gone about building it. It may take until Memorial Day or so to sort it out, but there’s a solid bullpen in all these options to be figured out. Quantity instead of quality doesn't nece...

As currently constructed, I still think we're the best team in the division. But man am I booooored with this offseason. I'm confused about "still" being the best team? I mean its certainly debatable but our 2nd best reliever right now is Rowan Wick and our position player and rotation de...

I wasn't annoyed by having to click the X to dismiss them. I was annoyed that it would sometimes lose which posts had been read and it would just dump me at the top of the page.
