Re: Offseason Transactions

What are the Rays doing? That's all they got for Odorizzi? And basically replacing Dickerson with Cron? I know odorizzis name had come up here a few times and most people were against the idea, but if I recall it was mostly because they didn't want to give up what they assumed Tampa would want for ...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

I am satisfied by this transaction. A fine addition to our ballclub. A fine addition, indeed.

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

My thinking is that his agent is just killing time while they play wait and see if the Yankees can free up some cash by moving Elsbury, and if somebody bites, then they bite.

If we couldn't have him, I'm glad he went to a team that is no threat to us. Or to anyone else for that matter.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Just thinking about the gut-punch dealt to the Brewers. With their win and Colorodo’s loss today, if only the Brewers could have hung onto that 6-0 lead last night, they’d have pushed a 1 game playoff to advance to a 1 game playoff.

Re: The Cardinals

Goodness, the Indians are just out of their minds. 32-2 in their last 34, is that some kind of record?

With Kluber/Carrasco to Miller, there’s going to be some very low scoring games in the post season.

How the horsefeathers do we get swept by the horsefeathering brewers?!?! One team played like it was a do or die situation for them, which it was.

Re: Cubs Acquire Justin Wilson & Alex Avila for Candelario, Paredes & PTBNL/Cash

The Cubs have mortgaged any chance they have at a long term dynasty over the past 2 seasons to go for wins now. I don't think they are doing the wrong thing, I think they could easily win 1 or 2 more World Series in this stretch. That doesn't change the fact that this is good for the Brewers long t...
