Marlins are scoring 2.76 runs a game. If there's a team to help Carl get his feet back under him, it's the Marlins.

Verlander will probably get 3k next year.

Scherzer and maybe Greinke could get to 3k in 2021.

Amazingly, Hill's career really took off after that. Whereas I, and I'm sure many others here, would have been completely destroyed.

Could've just signed Cain for a quarter of that and won the division by almost 10 games last season That Cain contract is going to age incredibly poorly for the Brewers.

They have pixie dust/devil magic going on. I expect it to continue as long as Yelich & Cain are in Brewers uniforms. Outside of Hader, their pitching staff is horrible. That's where the pixie dust comes in. They went pretty far with that bad pitching staff last year. Cedeno, Gonzalez, Knebel, M...

Joey Votto popped up to the first baseman for the first time in his Major League career tonight. 13 years and 7,000-ish at bats. That’s bizarre.

Re: Cubs suck and we were always right to hate them (2019 negativity thread)

So come July, which impending free agents are we going to trade off? Are we even going to be able to get anything of value in return? Hamels, Zobrist, Strop, Cishek, and Kintzler are free agents. Rizzo, Quintana, Brach and Morrow all have club options. Rizzo for two more seasons. Brach, Quintana an...

Re: Let the hate flow thread - our rosters have been totally mismanaged

Also at the root of this is the failure to develops ANY MLB caliber pitchers. It’s not a complete wash. Godley became the starting catcher on the WS team and Blackburn became Montgomery. But still, develop a 4/5 starter and two serviceable relievers at some point in the last 7 years and then you don...

6/132 extension Not surprised. That takes the biggest position player free agent off the board for 2020. Probably the only guy the Cubs would have been remotely interested.

Re: Let the hate flow thread - our rosters have been totally mismanaged

A couple things have become apparent about that 2017-2018 offseason... 1. Previously, the Cubs had emphasized arm health in the pitchers they acquired. They certainly signed guys who’d had major arm injuries, but they’d all had a few years under their belts showing they were back to health (Lester a...

I could see the Cubs going after Bogaerts if he’s available.

How could be have possibly made less money by not signing this deal? Even if he got hurt. Time to strike on a Hendricks extension? The number of very good pitchers who hit arbitration and don't end up making 40+ million is...substantial. Pitching is fleeting, take the money. So if Nola is the bench...

Re: What 2019-20 FA are we going to get overly excited about and not sign?

Rick Porcello is a pretty reliable inning eater and will be several notches below Sale and Bumgarner in price. Probably give a similar performance to Hamels this year at less than $20M a year. The entire bullpen besides Edwards is going to be a free agent, assuming neither Morrow’s or Brach’s option...
