Cut4: Best 2018 MLB Stories FAIL

https://www.mlb.com/cut4/best-mlb-stories-of-2018/c-302205590 David Bote's walk-off grand slam 2018 gave us a metric ton of walk-off homers -- 102 of them to be precise, a new Major League record. But in the year of the walk-off dinger, Bote's was the very walk-offiest, the kind of thing that usual...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread AKA The Rickettssss take a dump on EVERYTHING

Profar was traded ... not to the Cubs... I'm having so much fun watching all the players that were "rumored" to either be traded here, or sign here... go elsewhere. It's just what I wanted for my MLB Christmas.

Re: Addison Russell

After reading @elizadushku and her account of her abuse, and then reading the #MelisaReidy stuff that came out today ... I'm feeling really bleh about mankind. Then I realized I was still following Russell on IG, so I unfollowed him.

Re: Luis Valbuena killed in car accident

Extremely sad.

A "rock" is an understatement... it was a boulder as it's being reported.

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

Bleacher Report released their "Top 25 Free Agent Predictions" prior to the Winter Meetings beginning. They only have the Cubs signing Zach Britton for 3/$33M.

Re: Cano and Diaz to Mets?

I don't know why, but I'm really disappointed the Cubs didn't go after Diaz. I know we don't have prospects to trade, but this is why guys off the main roster could have been packaged with some mid-level prospects to get a quality closer like Diaz.

It's just been reported that Seattle is prime for a sell-off this offseason, but they have to be wowed with their returns. I'm not sure we have the pieces, but I think they should be interested in Edwin Diaz.

Re: [Brainstorm] HR Derby Changes/Updates

Okay - I've mapped some stuff out and here's the problem with teams by position instead of tiers.
Unless you want to have a team different than everyone else, you wind up with a team full of "A" players.
Not saying that they'd all stay to form from 2018, but you never know.

Thoughts?

Re: [Brainstorm] HR Derby Changes/Updates

If we’re just wanting to mix things up, how about scrapping the “tiers” of players and changing it so everyone has to have a complete “team” of fielders? Three outfielders plus the five infielders and a DH. Then, when you make a transaction, it has to be for the same position. If Anthony Rizzo gets...

Re: [Brainstorm] HR Derby Changes/Updates

In theory, I like the idea of a draft, however we would end up with more teams that cannot compete. First and second half winners would work, if we were giving out prizes like the old days.

Expanding the rosters might work... I'll have to think on that one.

[Brainstorm] HR Derby Changes/Updates

I do have a life, and yes it gets busy at times, but I still enjoy running the NSBB HR Derby every season. Maybe one of these years I'll finish in the Top 5. That being said, as we approach the 13th (documented) season of Home Run Derby... I'd like to ask everyone what they'd like to see changed / a...

We had the closest finish in 12 documented seasons of the NSBB HR Derby! In 2007, 2012, and 2015, the difference was two... this season... JUST ONE HR WAS THE DIFFERENCE! That Home Run ? Nolan Arenado ... in the 9th inning ... of a tie-breaker game #163! Congrats to REPEAT CHAMPION: Duke Silver FIN...
