No, you're right. His hollow, grandstanding, principled stance should be applauded and completely removed from the fact that he's a steaming pile of sleeze willing to vote for a bill like this.

https://twitter.com/thekapman/status/940975199708762112 Kipnis? No thank you. Out of curiosity why is Kipnis a bad pickup if its a buy low type of thing? He was bad last year but was a nearly 5 win player in both 2015 and 2016, only 30 and a relatively ok contract the next 2 seasons. I know we don'...

The most hilarious kind of hubris is the one when a dude is trying to pimp rooting for something nearly everyone here is happy happened.

Heyward is not going to waive his NTC to play for a rebuilding Marlins team

Re: Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood for 3/$38M

Is Chatwood a FIP beater? His ERA is pretty close to his FIP and almost identical to his xFIP for his career. It looks to me like he's getting the results that he has deserved to this point. ...did I mention he pitches in Coors? Did i mention his road peripherals? That's what this whole thing is ab...

Re: Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood for 3/$38M

Do you think that's a flaw with fWAR or do you think that's a flaw with guys who don't strike many out? I don't think it's a flaw with anything. I just think fWAR/FIP can't be blindly applied and FIP beaters do exist. Is Chatwood a FIP beater? His ERA is pretty close to his FIP and almost identical...

Re: Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood for 3/$38M

It's not hard to argue this is puzzling. I personally don't feel that way, but Chatwood has not had good results. He hasn't been healthy. He got $40 million and he'll get 25+ starts next year if healthy. You can argue that a WS contender giving $40 million over 3 years and a rotation spot to a chan...

Re: Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood for 3/$38M

Why is that a hot take? Because there's nothing the slightest bit puzzling about it. You can not like Chatwood, but this move replaces Lackey with a younger, cheaper pitcher who was twice as valuable as Lackey last year. I don't want to be arguing against this because I don't hate it, but a WS cont...

Re: Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood for 3/$38M

Why is that a hot take? Seems like a reasonable argument to me. I don't hate this deal. I don't love it either. They need pitchers and he should benefit from leaving Coors, from the Cubs defense, and maybe from new coaching/pitch usage. He still walks a ton of guys and doesn't get a lot of Ks and h...

Re: Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood for 3/$38M

I think we either get Ohtani or Cobb but not both. If we do get Ohtani, I think it is with the promise we trade one of our OFs, and what else can we trade for but pitching? Aside from a Betances, it would have to be another SP.
