Re: Castellanos to Reds 4/64 With Opt Outs

I’m fine not bringing him back at 4/64 and opt outs. None of the 3 Fangraphs systems have him over 2 WAR for this year and he seems pretty capped at 3 wins as his ceiling. Sucks he’s staying in the division though. https://twitter.com/jonheyman/status/1221804098737053701?s=21 4/64 is fine but with ...

Or any other season.

Only the sort of move you make if you've basically given up. Not a good baseball player and has the same flaws our roster was already riddled with.

Your fundamental job as a politician is to use the media to get people to perceive you the way you want to be perceived. If the media is working against you, you're failing.

Biden is going to skate right through these debates and on to a loss in the general election. That's my horsefeathering nightmare. He's the worst case possible to defeat Trump.

That's why ceiling questions are always dumb. Everyone's ceiling is becoming the GOAT and everyone's floor is dying in the next three seconds.

Re: Who do you pick in their prime, Ryno or Javy?

Sandberg can keep his 3 extra WAR or whatever, it comes attached to a sanctimonious douchenozzle, clubhouse cancer who jaked balls (hey-o) to protect his error-less streaks. He was the Ricketts ownership personified as a player.

He can hide behind Trubisky. I don't care if they fire him, but if they don't want to, then saying he gets another QB's worth of chance isn't unreasonable.

Zimmerman also says "if he's able to play" is an extreme long shot. Smith would come with a $16m cap hit for us for 2020. Assuming the standard cuts that most people are assuming (Long, Floyd, Prince, Gabriel, Shaheen), then you've got $31.6m to cover everything else, which includes four d...

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

If you're trading KB and Q, then why in the world are we keeping a $16 million closer and a $13 million relief pitcher? Probably because of one of the following: 1) depending on the returns, the Cubs could either still be favored or at least have a realistic shot in the division 2) you're hoping fo...
