Re: The Spring Training Thread

I totally forgot about him being "untouchable". And that was like 3 years before we actually traded him as a throw-in. Dark times.

They save about $2 million. I'm guessing they put that toward in-season moves.

Re: Things are looking Grimm for Justin

Not unsurprising. Last spot probably goes to Butler, since he's out of options. Maybe one of Simmons or Maples if Strop has to start the year on the DL.

Best of luck to him. Carl's Jr all that's left from the Garza trade haul.

Re: Jake Arrieta Signs with the Phillies for 3/$75M

Knew this was coming but still a bummer. What a Cubs tenure. I'm glad he's in Philly so I'll get to see him pitch. Kinda annoyed I missed him in Florida. I was at the Phillies game in Sarasota against the Orioles when it was announced. Place was freaking out. (side note: pitching for the Orioles was...

Went to a few Grapefruit League games. And I got to meet former Cubs great Sam Fuld after the one game. He's apparently a Phillies asst. coach now.

Re: Offseason Transactions

Webster was also a rumored target from the Garza era. It's kinda amusing how many of those guys we still ended up with anyway and it was because their arms fell off and they were rehabbing (Webster, Hultzen, Casey Kelly, Jacob Turner).

Re: 2017 Post-Season Prospect Rankings (BA, Fangraphs, BP)

No Mekkes?

And it's still crazy to see Underwood and Galindo on this list. Feels like they've been in the system forever. Probably says more about the system than it does about them.

What are the Rays doing? That's all they got for Odorizzi? And basically replacing Dickerson with Cron?

Re: Offseason Transactions

There’s “momentum” toward a deal that would bring infielder Eduardo Nunez back to the Red Sox, according to MLB.com’s Ian Browne (via Twitter). Indeed, the organization “could be close” to striking a deal with the versatile veteran. 5:29pm: The sides have a deal in place pending a physical, per Rob...

Gotta give the Orioles credit, they've managed to stay mostly competitive while being inept at building a steady rotation for several years.

I remember wanting him a couple years ago. Throws hard, has posted good numbers in the minors and in his brief time in the majors. Health is the big concern, obviously.

I am v. pleased. That's a good deal. Not thrilled with going 6 years but if there are opt-outs and it's front loaded, that makes it better.
