Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

The only trade that bothers me is Q for Eloy/Cease. Theo & Co overvalued Q’s contract. Who else would they have traded for instead? Idk...the only one that jumps at me is Cole. I think Eloy will be much better than Soler. We needed 3 pitchers between last year and the offseason so Eloy was good...

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

Where does Vlad Jr. rank among prospects of the 21st century? He's hitting .397/.447/.645 with an 8.5% K rate and almost 10% BB rate in 142 AA PAs this year. His $3.9 million bonus is the second highest for a 16 YO ever behind Michael Ynoa, easily the highest since the new IFA rules. He's in the sa...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Seems about right to me. There's definitely a bias towards the new movies in asking the question of what I'd rather watch right now.

Since SNL just ended and I'm 34 so life is hollow now... Taking Mets scheduled days off after games in Miami, limiting it to '16-'17 because Harvey wasn't bad until then, and Collins was fired, eliminating 2nd half of 2016 because he was on DL, and eliminating April of 2017 because he was off to a ...

Yeah I don't understand this. Chase field is a fine facility, it would be a waste of money to move the team.

Maybe they just don't want the dodgers swimming in the pool after clinching anymore.

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Bryce is a swell guy who will happily backload his contract so we stay under the LT for a few years That's not how the LT calculation works. It uses the AAV of the contract. I do think there's a possibility of doing something like 12/480 instead of 10/450, which would help significantly. My hope is...
