Re: The Alex Cobb Thread

Its Gordo, but he says in his latest article that Cobb's asking price is "about 20 mill per" and that he's heard the Cubs have cooled on him. Would explain why we hear rumblings of the Cubs active in the trade market for a starter Maybe the Cubs should just get like 3 potential starters o...

The way he's used, he was already questionable before any injury report.

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

Tomorrow is the rule V. Anyone interesting? We’ve talked about Burdi, an easy injury stash with an arm. RHP Jose Almonte from the D’Backs and LHP Jordan Guerrero from the White Sox seem interesting but not sure this is the roster for them. Twins RH Jake Reed might have a shot as a sinkerballer. It’...

Would this be a good opening day 2019 lineup?

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

I'm trying to figure out which acquisition would be worse, Stanton or Ozuna. With Stanton they would have been hamstrung financially and we could continue to mock their annual compensation pick. In addition, Stanton is always an injury concern and a year older. Ozuna had a monster year last year and...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado (and he wants to go back to SS)

I thought we've had a couple breakdowns now of how the Yankees could be able to afford Machado after next season. Hell, almost EVERYONE will be gunning for him; dude's not staying in St. Louis if he goes there. It's the wastelands. Sorry I might have missed the discussions, my bad. Just seems incon...

I'd love it if it's the Cardinals; trade off what few parts they have for a guy who the Yankees are going to be gunning for one season later? Yes please.


How can the Yankees afford Machado? Or do they just not give a damn about the luxury tax now?

FREE DA JERSEY - Week 15 Bears @ Lions, Saturday Afternoon for some reason 3:30 PM CT, NFL-N

Bears are 6.5 point dogs. Have no idea why they are randomly playing on a Saturday. I thought the NFL did away with Saturday games. Oh well, one step closer to NFL 7 days a week.

Re: Politics & Current Events

If Moore gets elected and the mouth breathers crow, and Trump tweets about how HE got Moore elected it won’t be the nadir. If Moore is elected I don’t know if there will be a bottom. However, if Jones is elected I think our country has turned a corner. Seriously, don't let yourself get your hopes up.
