I mean, I guess they added Soria to an already good bullpen. But that team could use a couple more bats and a starting pitcher.


They did add Mike Moustakas.

Re: Video Game Thread

So yeah, it's a new game. Set well before the original Fallout (25 years after the bombs), enough that most of the usual Fallout factions wouldn't have been formed yet. Rumor is that it might have an online component (I really hope it doesn't, and the rumors make me less excited), and will be a surv...

Bethesda seems set to announce something signififcant Fallout related. They've been running a Twitch stream with a bobblehead in the foreground and a monitor with the "Please Stand By" screen in the background. BGS employees wander into frame from time to time to drop clues. Seems like it'...

A short shower (let's say less than 5 minutes) makes sense. 90 seconds or less is absurd and gross. iirc, the way the article described it is that he turns the water on briefly to get wet, then turns it off while he scrubs up. Then he rinses off. So it running water for 90 seconds, but the "sh...

Re: Which Crazy Surprise Things Will Happen?

Had to go with the Schwarber option. .950 would exceed my expectations, but not by a whole lot. I think he's gonna bounce back in a big way.

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

I think the thought, besides flipping Santana for pitching, is to let Braun start at first base against every lefty and maybe even some righties. Thames was brutal against lefties last year, and really a sub-800 OPS in the second half for a first baseman isn't going to cut it either. Braun at first...

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

At some point the Cubs' model of buying a rotation rather than developing one, and having a so-so bullpen will catch up to them. how is this even a thought a person has? and why does it seem like 95% of baseball fans online think that there's something inherently better about players who were draft...

ANY help would be appreciated. As maybe I am missing/reading things wrong...certainly wouldn't be the first time.

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

I feel like the asking price for Archer is prohibitively high, otherwise he'd have been moved by now. I think it would cost the Brewers Santana plus 2-3 of their best remaining prospects. It would be a full buy-in move, and I don't believe it will happen. Even if it did, I don't think it would chang...

Re: Cain to Brewers

Not to mention Schwarber's first half struggles. The Brewers and Cubs both regressed to their respective means in the second half of 2017.

The bulk of the evidence suggests that time frame is much more like indicative of what to expect going forward.

Re: Cain to Brewers

Assuming the Cubs sign Darvish. I think the Vegas over under win totals will go something like this Cubs 93.5 Cards 87.5 Brewers 83.5 I would pound the under and watch them go 79-83 I might take the under on all 3 If we add Darvish, I'd probably take the over on the Cubs, and the under on St. Louis.

Re: Offseason Transactions

The Brewers sources guy says Santana to an AL team as soon as tomorrow. I’d guess Odorizzi, Fulmer, Salazar or Duffy for major league arms. He’s not nearly enough for Archer. Or else he’s traded off for prospects to replenish the Yelich trade a bit then they sign Cobb/Lynn/Jake I agree Santana’s no...

Re: The Cardinals

From GRB: I think the Cubs have the rotation edge, we have the edge in lineup , and the pens are pushes going into the year. Ahead of adding Ozuna I would have said the lineups were pushes as well. I like that back of the napkin math at the end of the day. I guess I'm more looking at the additions f...

I just can't get myself to want Jake back unless his contract is way below the supposed market value. I mean like 3/60, because even at 4/90 or something along those lines I just have zero interest.
