Re: Blackhawks Offseason

I'm starting to think that Bowman has a serious issue with buyer's (or seller's, in his case) remorse.

I'd be interested if you could cite some examples.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

As part of this exercise, would you rather include Eloy in a deal or do something like Schwarber, Cease, Jeimer and Zagunis for Archer and Dickerson/Souza (to take over LF/OF role Schwarber leaves open)? Are you asking [Eloy by himself] vs [Schwarber, Cease, Jeimer & Zagunis]? No, pretty much j...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

I don't consider Passan a super connected rumormonger, but it's interesting as a thought exercise at least: https://twitter.com/670thescore/status/876836914803990528 What SP, if any, would you trade Eloy to get? Is Archer one of them? It's an interesting thought experiment, but not likely to be muc...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-18-17

Also, here is the poor-quality video of Eloy's double on Friday night. I have a better/closer footage of a later AB but he struck out in that one. But I'm happy to post it if anyone would like. The video quality is much, much better on my phone so I'm not sure why it's so terrible when I uploaded t...

Until I read a bit on him, I thought Theo had drafted a FO guy.

Re: 2017 Draft Thread

Per the twitters, Daulton Varsho reportedly had a terrific workout for the Cubs. I remember somebody had us taking him as a big underslot in the 1st. Law? I'd be slightly disappointed with that pick, given how terrible the reports are on his arm behind the plate. And sign me up for the Schmidt/Alle...

Berkman has no time for anyone unless they fearfully pray to the same thunder god he's so afraid of. I was half-way to crafting a lightning joke when I read this comment. Bummer.

Re: Better Call Saul (Again)

Personally, I thought that him not answering when the dealer said "Don Hector" was to establish that his hearing wasn't the greatest in that noisy environment. :dontknow:

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

I think you'd have to be really careful if the Braves decide to move him. It would likely mean they feel like something has gone wrong with him.
