Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

I'm really looking forward to the following sequence of events: 1) Cubs trade Russell, Albertos, ODLC and Hatch for Machado & IFA cap space 2) Cubs sign top 2 IFA and everyone else they were already in line for in July 3) Cubs win world series 4) Cubs announce a new deal with Machado, who takes ...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado and the Cubs are interested per Gordo

Part of the narrative with the flood of Machado articles yesterday is the Cubs offense is too boom or bust. Which, I don't know if there's any information or metrics out there that are readily available that measures it but if I had to guess the Cubs offense is no more boom or busty than any other ...

So...

Russell + Albertos + Hatch for Machado + IFA Funds (turns into Victor Victor).

Done. Let's move on it.

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

I remember learning about this concept in an economics class a long time ago. It's called information asymmetry -- where one party in a transaction or system has access to more information than the other party leading to an advantage. I'm probably not explaining the concept that well, but I'm prett...

Re: Westworld

I enjoy Samurai movies, so on a superficial level I found this episode fun, I guess. However, it seems things are a bit of a mess, though that might just be me not being sufficiently invested to fully grasp what's going on. Delores especially continues to bore me. the maeve and bernard storylines a...

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...

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

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.
