Wrong. Nothing has ever happened and never will. This offseason is a black hole of signings.

I just pretend Heyward gives half his annual salary to Rizzo out of guilt. It makes me feel much better.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Though it’s entirely possibly that the White Sox are the front runners, it’s more likely that Scott Boras is using them to light a fire under the usual big spenders. I can't imagine a big spending GM/owner getting all hot and bothered about missing out on a free agent to the White Sox. This isn't S...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

They are also currently 9 million under cap and we are over by 14 million. Which doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things because if they don't move another $20+ million this will be their 3rd consecutive year over and the penalties start getting really ridiculous. EDIT: And they just bl...

Deal? Theo; “You can just have Chatwood. Really! Merry Christmas!”

Seriously though, how does it count towards luxury tax numbers if the Cubs trade Chatwood and pay, say, half his salary?

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

If Bryce signs because of (in part) his friendship with KB, does that help the Cubs keep KB down the road cuz he wants to stay with Bryce? Conversely, if the Cubs can't sign Bryce, does that make it harder for them to retain KB? No idea what will happen but I wouldnt doubt if Bryce definitely wants...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

I’d love some Tulowitzki to the Cubs on a bounceback deal It's not really a bounceback deal. The Blue Jays are eating his entire salary. Wherever he signs, it will be for the $500k league minimum with the Blue Jays making up the rest for the next two years. So it's more a question of what team offe...

Tim did say he was talking about decline based on age. I read it that Zobrist is the only guy who is so old you have to expect decline. He also specified offense. I can't speak for Tim, but I'm sure he'd agree that Baez is also likely to regress, but thats a matter of regression to the mean, not wa...

The amount of spin from people inexplicably trying to defend the nonsense idea that Zobrist is the only real candidate for any kind of decline (please spare me the wobbly, nebulous, "b-b-b-but I was only talking about the special decline that old guys have, honest!") is giving my hair the...
