If this is the case, then why in the horsefeathers are you bringing back Hamels?

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

Realistically, the guys that conceivably make money and could be moved..... Arb guys first...... Schwarber- No, he's not going to make MUCH, but at his estimate of 3.1, if he brought back multiple pre arb arms? At least a possibility....... Russell- Yeah, this one SEEMS like a no-brainer. But, from ...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

Outside of Philly, every team that's a true contender for him(I honestly don't think Atlanta will be), will be into the Luxury Tax, in signing him...... Making it even more money than what you're just paying him obviously..... He's 26. And I'd be willing to bet that teams figure the DH WILL be in th...

Honestly, I suspect any team other than Philly to give Bryce enough years to where he's under 30 for the tax.

275 means they're paying over 300. I've been of the mindset that's where we're headed..... But, this news definitely puts at least a serious question as to whether that's realistic.

I'd add Vasto, just because we don't have many teams he didn't clear. In all honesty, I kind of like Gore being around lol.

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

I'm going to put this here, because it's very relevant to how we approach the offseason...... This is the EXACT way that the Luxury Tax works. Confirmed by Jeff Todd, of MLBTR...... Tax begins at 206 in 2019, 208 in 2020, and 210 in 2021. Here's the example I'll use, with us as a 1st time offender f...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

I think they like Andrus. He's got another opt out next year too though, maybe they'd want to try and see if they could net something positive on him? He's just one year removed from that type of season..... My guess is it'll take more than just poor contracts to get him....... If for no other reaso...

Re: 2019 Payroll tracking

Figure in 2.25 mill for guys on the 40 Man. Plus, likely an extra 2-3 mill(at least) for in season call ups. Wouldn't in-season call ups be a subset of the 40 man guys? Or am I misunderstanding you? Nah, those guys are 150k or so, as long as they're in the minors. But, once they get brought up, the...

Re: Week 8: J-E-T-S @ Bears Sunday at noon on CBS

Trade Howard and/or Floyd for second rounders? Not sure if you could get firsts for them, but they can be replaced fairly easily in the Bears offense and defense. You're not getting 2nds for them. My honest guess is Howard gets you a 5th. Doubt Floyd even gets that. There were literally articles th...

The Multi Inning Reliever Thread

No idea where to put this, if it even goes in Transactions or not..... But I think teams are going to start trying guys out in this role more often, after the [expletive] racist Brewer and even seeing teams using it more often in the postseason....... Personally, I love the idea. The question I've g...

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

What I meant by Asik, Lopez, and Parker- Was that each salary represented opportunity to take on bad money. I get that only one team did it last off season, which is why I was ok adding Parker. If there's no market, there's no market. Supposedly they had picks included in bad contract offers on Lope...

I appreciate the thoroughness. For the life of me though, I fail to understand how you don't see that its a horrible look to not even work out Lauri. It IS lucky they hit on him. And its lazy as to how they did it. Same with promising Hutchison and not working out guys for the last month prior to th...

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

Again, they literally didn't even work Lauri out. Hitting on him is lucky. THAT type of trade. They winged it. It worked. This is about how they're handling this rebuild. Not 15 years of data that doesn't actually prove anything. They've also held onto guys too long or didn't move them at all. There...

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

Plenty of teams use their exceptions and most use them more often. Signing minimum level players, when a guy goes out is expected. Especially since thst had a roster spot due to Asik. When you make a trade like they did, they DID get lucky. They haven't exactly been great at trading in the past. And...

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

I don't think you're paying close enough attention because they've been pretty active off the scrap heap. I'm very well aware of every move they make. I'm also very well aware they waited until the end of the year last year, signed a few guys just to give them some salary towards the salary floor. ...

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

By the way, didn't see an edit. I'd say signing Covington off the scrap heap is Philly's best maneuver as far as roster management has gone..... Only reason I brought Philly up is in response to Proven Veteran saying we were trying a Philly style rebuild. But again, the point is not whether the move...
