Deal? Theo; “You can just have Chatwood. Really! Merry Christmas!”

Seriously though, how does it count towards luxury tax numbers if the Cubs trade Chatwood and pay, say, half his salary?

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

If Bryce signs because of (in part) his friendship with KB, does that help the Cubs keep KB down the road cuz he wants to stay with Bryce? Conversely, if the Cubs can't sign Bryce, does that make it harder for them to retain KB? No idea what will happen but I wouldnt doubt if Bryce definitely wants...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

I’d love some Tulowitzki to the Cubs on a bounceback deal It's not really a bounceback deal. The Blue Jays are eating his entire salary. Wherever he signs, it will be for the $500k league minimum with the Blue Jays making up the rest for the next two years. So it's more a question of what team offe...

Re: Lee Smith, Harold Baines elected to HOF

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Tim did say he was talking about decline based on age. I read it that Zobrist is the only guy who is so old you have to expect decline. He also specified offense. I can't speak for Tim, but I'm sure he'd agree that Baez is also likely to regress, but thats a matter of regression to the mean, not wa...

The amount of spin from people inexplicably trying to defend the nonsense idea that Zobrist is the only real candidate for any kind of decline (please spare me the wobbly, nebulous, "b-b-b-but I was only talking about the special decline that old guys have, honest!") is giving my hair the...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I can foresee a volleyball like set of rules where you have to be “in position” as the ball is served.

Shortstop has to be on the left side of 2B as the ball is thrown and can shuffle to his left immediately after it’s released. I don’t like it but I could see it being thrown out there.

I just received an email from the Cubs alerting me to a concert on June 14 and 15 of Dead and Company. I wonder how much the Ricketts are pocketing for these concerts and I wonder if the money is going to the Cubs or if the Rickets are "renting" the field and putting the profits elsewhere...
