Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread AKA The Rickettssss take a dump on EVERYTHING

Someone will have to explain the Sandy Leon fascination to m. Sure, good framer and defender, but almost impossibly inept with the bat. In short, like a dozen other reserve catchers out there. Personally I'd rather have Rene Rivera back. I think the idea is that the gap between Leon and alternative...

Re: Happ to AAA to Start Season

They’ve been incredibly successful for a multi-year time horizon. I know cynic/nihilist is the default state for many, but it’s not out of place to point out when hand-wringing the choice of 4th outfielder. by far the richest team in the division won the division twice in ten years.

If tomorrow started a playoff series he should be on the playoff roster, although not by a huge margin. YMMV on how much some regular ABs at Iowa will help him improve from that point.

Re: Happ to AAA to Start Season

Also, given that the theme of this offseason has been that the Ricketts' are monsters, I can't help but point out that a little more than a month in Iowa would push Happ's arbitration back a year... Happ has 1 year and 142 days of service time, he’d have to basically spend the whole year in Iowa to...

Re: Happ to AAA to Start Season

That’s what I was thinking too, but wasn’t there room for Happ and Adames with Russell being suspended? Or would that be 13 position player guys? That’d be 13, Caratini/Bote/Descalso are the 3 locks before making that call. This distinction snuck up on me, I guess we spent so long with a position p...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Lots of good things going on for Americans. Tyler Adams is dominating bundesliga midfields, pulisic is undeniable at the moment, and Jordan Morris comes back from injury and looks like the player we hoped he could become. This could be a fun gold cup - at least its real games. Has Jordan Morris don...

Re: College Basketball 2018-2019

So my work pool scores 1-2-4-6-8-12 per round with an underdog bonus in the first two rounds where you add the difference in seeds. So if a 10 beats a 7, I get 4 points but 7 over a 10 is worth 1. Is there a good reason why, after I fill out my bracket, I shouldn’t just pick the underdog in round 1...

I cant imagine that's true. Mookie Betts is at the tippy top of the pre-FA salary scale and he's going to end up with ~90 million during his first 7 years (assuming he stays awesome).

Re: Rule Changes Are Coming

The "best" pace of play change is a pitch clock, because if you enforce it then it cures the pace and duration problems at once. Everything else(limiting shifts, pitching changes, roster limits, commercial breaks, etc) is small potatoes in comparison to the impact a pitch clock would have.
