Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

At some point, it has to be okay for the team to play well. They're basically locked into the 4 spot with 19 games left to play and 3 games clear of either 3rd or 5th, and 6 games clear of anything beyond that. They aren't hurting themselves by playing well. Yet. Losing yesterday would have really ...

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

Assume that GarPax won’t tank. Is this lineup with 1-2 bench reinforcements in FA a playoff team next year, Morant/FA/Arch LaVine/Valentine/Selden Porter/Hutchison Markkanen/FA Carter Jr/Lopez (supposedly bulls want him back) To throw some random names in for FAs let’s say Elfrid Payton at PG and Ma...

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

It was actually an entertaining game to watch but that was a pretty bad win overall to the team directly ahead of them in the standings

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Yeah it's such a weird demand. I understand wanting to be with 1 team the rest of your career, but to refuse security and leverage or even let your agent discuss it doesn't make sense. On top of that, hasn't pretty much every single big time contract with an opt out either not been used or the play...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

If the Phillies werent willing to go to $330 with an opt out, fine its a concession, but if it isnt even on the table at the player's insistence it just seem right. I doubt Boras went into meetings saying "My client refuses to accept an opt out". No but if we take his comments at face val...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

That is dumb as hell unless it was leverage for more money. You can still be with one team, you just have an opportunity to bail out and make more money if the team that you've never played for until now turns out to suck. I don't think it's dumb as hell. The guy doesn't want to go through free age...

The Cubs were so under the radar on this one that even Harper and Boras weren't in the loop.

Re: What 2019-20 FA are we going to get overly excited about and not sign?

I'm not sure any of those guys you listed will take a minor league deal unfortunately. I see Welington Castillo is going to be a free agent, maybe he will return home if we can sell off some of the light fixtures at Wrigley (you only really need like 4-5 to see the ball)

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

So Zobrist and Heyward both played the same day the Bryce agreed with the Phillies? Maybe whatever the Cubs were trying to do fell through and they said "Sorry Bryce". Sorry forgot to take this damn tin foil hat off! Yeah I mentioned that too. It's certainly possible it was just a coincid...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Christ, 13 years? Obviously that's for luxury tax purposes but Bryce is obviously pretty sure he wasn't going to have a career after 36 (which, given the way of things these days, is probably a safe bet) Surprised he didn’t get any opt outs in there. Rosenthal is saying he didn't want an opt-out. T...

I don’t see why any team would help the Cubs get Harper by taking Heyward and Zobrist in a trade. Well obviously it’s a trade and it would have to provide some benefit to the other team.

Does seem like there is a little smoke with all of these absences for personal reasons from the 2 most likely players to be traded to clear up payroll.
