You must have missed Almora grading out as the 2nd-worst defensive CF in the NL last year.

Re: Moving

After living in something like 24 different addresses before age 30, I've happily lived at the same address for over 12 years. I would happily live here another 12 if it meant not moving again (though my wife and I have discussed downsizing immediately after our youngest is off to college in 5 or 6...

Re: [2020 Brainstorm] HR Derby

What if bench players had to be pre-arb/arb-eligible only? Would be more faithful to the traditional "wild card," as you'd need to dig deep instead of finding a bounceback guy already on a long-term deal due to their prior dong prowess.

The Cubs are definitely Jim once you watch the show enough. Likable and pathetic in the early seasons, peaked in like season 3, and then slowly revealed himself to be the huge horsefeathers that, looking back, he kinda always was. Right now they're in "bought his parents house for them to live...

Re: "Time makes fools of us all" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

I still think the best move is to sign Castellanos and listen to offers for Schwarber. He's fun to watch when he's on a roll, but he can't hit lefties, can't pinch hit, and needs to be replaced defensively in close games. He's a great option for being a DH/platoon OF in the AL. Why can’t he pinch h...
