Re: 2017 Post-Season Prospect Rankings (BA, Fangraphs, BP)

From the BA chat:

Dan (Chicago): How far away was a Cub prospect?

Kyle Glaser: Aramis Ademan’s name came up as an option for the back, but he was never really in the lead among the other candidates he was facing off against.


Cease didn't make BA's top 100.

I'm surprised Law had Ademan over Alzolay. It felt like he was the highest on Alzolay of everyone in the prospect media.

Re: 2017 Post-Season Prospect Rankings (BA, Fangraphs, BP)

No Cubs make BA's top 100. Eloy was 4, Gleyber 6. Somehow Acuña was rated ahead of Ohtani.

Man, Nate Pearson made their top 100. He's been getting a lot of love from Kiley McDaniel recently too. Hope the Cubs didn't take the wrong JC pitcher in last year's first round.

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Fitzpatrick is probably a safety, and while Alexander is good I like Ward better. I agree on R-H. He was playing really well towards the end of the season. I think most people think that about Fitzpatrick, but he'd project as a free safety and has literally never taken a snap at FS. He has played s...

I'm impressed Yadi had time to respond to Willson. I thought he spent all of his offseason pinetarring up his catcher's gear.

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2017-2018

Badler says the Yankees, Marlins and Rangers are the favorite for Cuban 21-year old CF Julio Pablo Martinez. Of those three teams, the Rangers have the most cap space. He hasn't been cleared yet as a free agent.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

It’s tough for me to see it being Jake because at worst he’s probably looking at 3/55 and probably will end up around 4/85. That’s still a lot especially since he hasn’t made a ton in his career. Moustakas was my guess because he actually isn’t very good and I could see him having only 1 year deals...

Agreed. Besides, Sitton is old and who knows if Long will ever be the same after the injuries.

Both Walter football mocks have the bears taking Iowa cornerback Jackson, and I don't hate the idea.
