Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Yeah, that seems like an even worse idea. I actually think you could do a good Venom movie if you first introduce him as a villain in a Spiderman story made by Marvel (and part of the MCU). Then you give him his own film as an anti-hero with a new motivation and character progression. Venom is an i...

He's also an atrocious human being, which is obviously more important.

If he finishes the year strong, why wouldn't he get more on the open market?

Re: Cole Hamels: Somehow Justin Verlander

The Cubs will want to stay under the max penalty for the luxury tax. If they're signing Harper, it will take some very creative juggling to make that work if they are paying Hamels $20M. We also have the following starters under contract/control for next year: Hendricks Lester Quintana Darvish Chatw...

Also, I recognize that the smart thing to do would be to avoid paying Kimbrel for past performance. But I want a true bullpen of doom, dammit.

Okay, this would be a much more fun approach (minus Eovaldi this time): Exercise options on: - Quintana - Strop Trade: - Duensing, Kintzler for whatever savings can be had (assume we can save $2M while paying the rest) for lottery tickets - LaStella for relief prospect? - Russell for the best pre-ar...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

I was probably overthinking it on Eovaldi. Honestly, we're fine with a three man competition between Monty, Smyly and Chatwood for the final rotation spot. If Chatwood can figure it out, he really brings a heck of a lot to the table. Monty has proven this season that he's a perfectly capable rotatio...

Every quarterback under and overthrows some balls. Expecting Mitch to be accurate on every throw is not realistic. I only remember the one underthrow (the int) and two overthrows (in the flat and down the seam). Thats...pretty "normal" performance, especially from a QB who is still pretty ...

Isn’t he still learning the offense? I would expect him to get more comfortable with reads and knowing exactly where guys are supposed to be as the season goes on.
