Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I have been here since 2003 and somehow missed all this. The price you pay for avoiding the social forum like the plague. But now it’s ALL social Forum.

Can we get a baseball forum back?

Also, I’m still confused with all the name changes, some of which are several years old. (TBS is IMB! ?)

If it is the giants, it theoretically gets them two decent players at a discount, adds to their farm AND keeps Harper out of LA.

All theorectical though. Totally not happening.

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

Yeah, the Cubs are fine as long as everything goes right, but the odds of everything going right over a long season aren't great. Since they didn't spend the money or make any trades (yet), we have to hope the semi-injured bounce back, the old-timers stay "young" for another year, and eve...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

- Setting up a situation where you take from older players to pay players with little to no track record is setting up a situation where everyone gets underpaid in the long run. It basically makes it OK to say - not pay Trout or Harper in their 30s (because having those guys then will allegedly hur...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Free agency is fine. Fix prearb I hear this stuff and am very recently coming to realize that often the intention is to take from the older players to give to the younger players. While I can’t assume that is what you mean, that can also burn in hell It's very simple: players are grossly underpaid ...

Bryant in 2018: 2.3

Baez in 2018: 5.3

So a relatively healthy Bryant gains 3.7 fWAR, making up for the 1.3 fWAR Baez loses almost three times over.

It seems you and Tim agree.

Re: Kris Bryant is awesome and we were always right to love him

My favorite thing of the whole ordeal may be that a Cardinals reporter (I think) claims that Bryant texted an apology to Dexter that night... if that's true I imagine his response was something along the lines of "no problem, you're right" “Hey Dex, I’m sorry. Sorry you have to play in a ...

The longer this drags out and the longer we make no moves of substance it makes me think we are more in on Bryce than is known. I think we have the moves/trades lined up to sign him if he tells us he wants to come/accepts our offer, but we aren’t going to make those moves if he doesn’t come because...
