Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

So the plan seems to be "find guys that had a good season a couple years ago but sucked or were injured more recently and sign for a bare bones price and hope that they find their previous form" I've liked Scooter as a target all offseason. He was really good at the plate in each of his p...

Re: NL DH by 2021?

The DH is dumb and lame, but this fight was lost when the DH started becoming a regular thing at lower levels of the game and pitchers no longer bothered working on their hitting. Might as well just get it over with. Pitchers don't suck at hitting because they don't work on it enough, they suck at ...

Re: NL DH by 2021?

Woo hoo, the DH is fun and awesome. This is great, instead of pretending there is something strategic about letting a crappy hitter hit, I get to watch guys who know how to hit actually hit. For decades, the single most important decision that a manager has to make during a game has been what to do...

Re: NL DH by 2021?

The mythological strategy is a thing that happens maybe once a game every few games. In almost every game, the pitcher is pulled in the 6th and every time his spot comes up they use a pinch hitter. That's not strategy, it's commoditized resource utilization, and it's dull as hell.

Cincy doesn't have to become division contenders to alter the season, they just need to become relatively competent against teams other than the Cubs this year.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I'm fascinated to see how the sportswriters parse voting for Ortiz and not for A-Rod since they both tested positive for PED's. Wasn't Ortiz only listed on the 2003 "anonymous" test that has been picked apart and legitimacy questioned? ARod was suspended twice and admitted to taking PEDs ...

Man, Zion is horsefeathering fat. He’s also only like 6’5” it seems up against NBA guys. I saw on TV that he's the 3rd heaviest player in the NBA at 285. Like I can't figure out that he's just that fat or that they're lying on TV cuz there has to be more than 2 guys in the NBA that weighs more. In ...

Re: Build Your 25 Man Team From Last 25 Years

If you really want to make it interesting you have to use players from each of the past 25 years, but they have to be today years old while playing. Pick the youngest guy you can each year and start with your bench and bottom three BP spots, then work your way up from there. Alternatively, pick dea...

Re: Build Your 25 Man Team From Last 25 Years

#4 & #5 to me meant basically you can't put full-time players on the bench, otherwise it's less interesting imo bench isn't a position, it's a status. You're either a legit LF or you are not. And there's no reason why a starting caliber position playing backing up a better play makes a roster i...

Re: Cubs Acquire Travis Lakins From Red Sox for Cash/PTBNL

One thing I find interesting about all these bullpen pieces is that they've all been big time spin guys, but none of them have been all that exciting in terms of velocity. I wonder if that's more due to the supply side of things (all else being equal orgs favor velocity over spin) or on the demand ...

He signed the contract during a period where big contracts completely dried up because of the collusion between owners.

He also got opt-outs into the contract and should use them as pressure to get what he wants from the team, including trying.

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

The premise for 1917 seems a little contrived. They're sending 2 guys with a message to call off an attack during WWI? The British lost 20,000 men on the first day of the Somme and still attacked again on day 2. The generals didn't seem to mind losing thousands of men in pointless attacks. Why woul...
