Buccigross surprises me more than Berry.

“Bucci” always seemed like a sleazeball to me


ESPN is backing Bucci.

Re: Politics & Current Events

So when Susan Collins voted yes for the Senate tax bill, she said she'd only vote for final passage if her budget demands (DACA, amongst others) were met. It's now pretty official that those demands will not be met. So now we get to see what depressing way this monstrosity goes through: 1. Collins,...

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

I don’t think you let Tim Anderson’s bum ass get in the way of making a Machado trade/decision, but that’s just me. Anderson strikes me as an obvious piece that would be going back to Baltimore. Cheap, league average production that's locked up forever. He's definitely not moving Moncada off second...

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

If Machado wants to play SS, Anderson then has got to go to 2nd. I don’t think you let Tim Anderson’s bum ass get in the way of making a Machado trade/decision, but that’s just me.

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

More I think about it, more I wonder if Rick Hahn thinks they are closer than people think, the AL Central is a mess, and wants to take a run at Machado and see if they can surprise next year. I mean, a lineup with Machado/ Garcia /Abreu/Moncada could be excellent. Still, the rotation would have so...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Haven't seen all the details of the latest version of the bill. No one ever expected AMT to end up in the final version, but including it in the version that was passed last week made the whole bill seem a lot more government revenue-friendly than what they were shooting for. So when they went back ...

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

Only way Kipnis makes sense is if we find a way to dump Zobrist (which would be an intriguing upgrade in my opinion), and I can't see that happening with a full trade clause.

Sign Cobb, make Chatwood the swing man. Gausman away from the hellhole of Baltimore could be really good.

Sanders and the White House clearly tossed out some immigration schlub at the press briefing to delay/avoid as many twitter/sexual assault/roy moore questions as possible. This isn't the first time they've done this, but this dude is clearly in over his head and is just getting ripped apart. Part of...

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

The only way I can see equal value is by the Padres throwing in Gore, and the Cubs in their current position trading for an 18 year pitcher doesn't make much sense. That's for Baez or Russell at least. I guess I could see Happ for Hand + a top ten prospect or two. I could see the Cubs accepting Rus...

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

I get that it'd be inner-division, but the first one that came to mind was a package centered around Gleyber. Given that Machado only has one year left, I can't see the Cubs getting involved. The money needed to lock him down after 2018 is already earmarked elsewhere. #otherplans but damn it would ...

I’d still like to bring in Reed. There was some discussion that it was viewed that Morrow set the market for non Closers. If there’s a way to bring in Addison Reed for less than Morrow, that’s a nice security blanket in case Morrow has any issues/setbacks. That is my biggest off-season fear. Morrow...
