Re: 2019 Opening Day Minor League Rosters

That list of MB pitchers only fuels my want to see Marquez get pushed. My guess is, if Marquez is not with SB, that Carrera gets the opening day call. Speaking of Carrera, he still hasn‘t leaned out, if that ever happens, but rather has continued to gain quality mass. Hopefully it is in Theo’s Plan ...

Re: NL Central: Vaunted Defending Champion Brewers and others

I kinda like the balls on the Brewers...They’re running with Burnes, Peralta, and Woodruff in the rotation. I especially like Burnes, Peralta has been a performer, and Woodruff can maybe eat some innings as a sinkerballer

I think we are in for a rough year.


Oh, it’s going to be worse than that. The Cubs are going to do really well, like extremely well, and every [expletive] under the sun will praise their temperance.

Re: Trout signs massive extension (12/$430)

What would you project him to get, either as an extension pre-FA (3 years left including this year) or as a 30 year old FA? Do I have to acknowledge and play along with, therefore enabling, the owners’ collusion or can I go with what he should be worth? Bryant’s career pre-2018 was basically a top ...

If Kris Bryant gets back to being Kris Bryant, he should be laughing at a $200 million dollar deal. This is especially the case given the nonsense lies about why they didn’t spend

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Bryant and Boras probably weren’t in any rush to talk extension this offseason. 2018 was basically Bryant’s worst baseball season ever and because of an injury, not exactly a good look to immediately demand an extension that same offseason If he goes off this year, and he will, I’m guessing they get...

Re: 2019 Opening Day Minor League Rosters

That starting OF for MB is ugly All the OF's above South Bend are pretty brutal. The guys who had some promise in the past have not lived up to it. The rest of them have a 4th or 5th OF ceiling. Fair but I can at least call Martinez, Wilson, and Dewees prospects. They’re on the fringes but are ackn...

Re: 2019 Draft Thread

I watched a lot of Campbell last year and his fastball command was not good. Always possible that he changed something up and has improved there, but I really don't like those types if it can be avoided. He’s at 4 walks, no HRs, and 23 hits allowed in 30+ innings this year and 44 Ks. That suggests ...

Re: NFL offseason

Hockenson is easily a better all-around TE while Fant is the more gifted athlete, but Fant also has issues trying to catch footballs sometimes so his athleticism doesn’t always get to show. I think they’re both studs. Hockenson lowkey nailed the combine too (37” vert, 7.02 3-cone @ 251#) and was al...

Re: NFL offseason

Noah Fant killed the combine, caught a ridiculous 19 TDs in 78 receptions during his college career, and averaged 14 yards a reception. For some reason I’m not seeing him considered among the handful best players in this draft, and even that college teammate Hockenson is a better prospect. What am I...
