Re: Addison Russell

i thought it would be years before we started finding out which guys from the 2016 team are bad people I assume you mean besides Lackey. Kris Bryant runs a [expletive] and dog fighting ring. Ben Zobrist killed Laura Palmer. Kyle Schwarber texts while driving. Kyle Hendricks has a crawl space full o...

The decent ones end up middle relievers. The good ones end up doubled over and clutching their shoulder.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

The thing about Darvish is that if and when he goes on the table, every serious contender is going to want in. And the Yankees are likely to blow everyone else out of the water by a lot. In general, there seems to be an awful lot of serious contenders with strong farms in the Yankees, Dodgers, Astro...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

My friend who's a Phillies fan is convinced someone is gonna give them a couple of really good prospects for Jeremy Hellickson. Hellickson has a 3.6 (!) K/9 this year. Yesterday he gave up 7 runs on 8 hits and 4 walks through 5 innings and now has a 5.49 FIP. Probably should keep dreaming, buddy. R...

Re: THANK YOU DEX

So happy for Dex and his family that he's getting the payday he deserves. The Cardinals Stink will never be able to tarnish what he has done in Chicago. I guess I have to get used to having a favorite Cardinal. Here's hoping for MVP numbers on an 80-win team. Something tells me they weren't exactly...

Would somebody kindly refresh my memory regarding Dakota Mekkes? I remember some degree of buzz when drafted, but was he viewed as a late round gem or simply a decent pick?

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-5-17

More likely to fall into the Brandon Guyer/Justin Bour category of latching on with some other team in a few years, and being decent enough to be acknowledged, but not regretted.

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that we not only have a "the 3" as good as KB, Rizz, and Schwarb, but an additional 3 in Russell, Contreras, and Baez, who would alone be an exciting "the 3" for most teams.
