Re: Rasslin' 2.0

Any surprise entrant predictions? I'll say Daniel Bryan, HHH(winner), Jake the snake, with Samoa Joe and Sami Zayn from NXT.

Rasslin' 2.0

Rumble on Sunday. Favorite PPV of the year for me. Please God, don't let Reigns win from the 1st spot. I'm pulling for the title to go anywhere but Roman/HHH myself..... Kind of cool Austin Aries is in NXT now. I think their touring roster is awfully horsefeathering good at this point. I hope they g...

Re: Cespedes back to Mets

He got more money over 3 than Kennedy did over 5. So? Hitting over pitching, to begin with. I guess there's a chance he turned down Detroit at the same money Upton got, for the opt out after 1.....But I'd have taken the Upton deal. Hitting over pitching has never played itself out in the FA market....

Re: Sickels' Top 20 Cubs prospects for 2016

The player development aspect of our organization is worlds ahead of where it was. Obviously, there will be misses, but I'm confident we'll hit on our fair share too. There's a very nice mix of high upside guys at the lower levels and solid contributing, role playing types in the upper levels. The c...

Re: Lucroy wants to be traded to a contender

This all seems a little silly to me. The Cubs have 3 guys with the potential to start at catcher(2 on the MLB roster), but uncertainty about all of them being that person(will Montero still be good, will Contreras continue his pace at AAA, is Schwarber a catcher). Adding another MLB rostered catche...

Re: Lucroy wants to be traded to a contender

And just like that, Contreras is named the top catching prospect in baseball, by MLB. So I guess there very well may be some people in baseball who see Contreras being better than some of that group....

Re: Lucroy wants to be traded to a contender

You realize that half the guys you're trying to get us to trade for at C have either sucked fiercely in the majors or have zero major league experience, right? Sanchez. Hedges. Plawecki. Zunino. Suck or have little to zero experience. Here comes the pedigree horsefeathers you'll attempt to use..... ...

Re: Lucroy wants to be traded to a contender

The Heyward move didn't teach us anything. CF was a horsefeathering need. We literally had Matt Szczur on our roster and that was it, prior to Heyward. You assess Contreras this season(as I already said) and go from there. A lot more will be known as to whether or not it looks like he's capable of b...

Re: Lucroy wants to be traded to a contender

Going after a C now, would be a stupid use of resources. Between Montero, Schwarber, and Contreras, I feel pretty confident about 2017 as well. The FO certainly likes Contreras, if we hand it to him next year, I won't be surprised at all. I'd go as far as to say he'd need to fall on his face in AAA ...

Munenori Kawasaki appears to have signed a minor league deal with us. He may not be much of a player, but he's fun.

Re: International Thread 2015-2016

I remember thinking Ruiz' showcase wasn't great, but I didn't think the reports were that negative either. He had his expected velo, the command wasn't quite what was expected, if I recall. Which was disappointing, but understandable due to it being his first showcase. He's had quite a layoff. Could...
