Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

Also, "I think simply being 25 or under is reason to guarantee a maintained or improved line, also I think the Cubs offense has a high potential for collapse" is some phenomenal logic.

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

Watching BABIP regression tank Santana, Pham, Ozuna, and DeJong this season is gonna lead to so many 'who could have seen this coming?' retrospectives I'll have to make a scrapbook out of them.

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Oh is today the day where other teams try the Yankee playbook on this? "As can be clearly seen by Darvish(and 70 other free agents) waiting this long, he really wants to come to our team. The fact that there's been no news of any interest from the team is irrelevant, as they're working hard to ...

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

While the Cubs FO has done well at the top of drafts, in international free agency and trades, is it fair to criticize the lack of prospects from rounds 2 and on (besides Cease)? From looking at these top 100 prospect lists, there are a number of players drafted after the 1st round and competitive ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Am I missing something, or is that not really unexpected or out of the ordinary? Especially without examples of specific races, the idea that the party would generally support incumbents and not toss them aside as trash en masse doesn't seem all that scandalous.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

What’s with this whole Mix to Man City thing? From some quick searching, it looks like he's taking advantage of the NYCFC/Man City connection to be able to train at their facilities while he looks for a club in Europe, but to do so he legally had to sign something with Man City even though he's not...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

It's not really in many of those teams' benefit to go spend on Moustakas or Arrieta either though. 'Tanking' gets a bad rap for what everyone intuitively knows is true, not everyone is going to be competitive and some teams are much more depleted of talent, so it makes sense for some teams to try t...

Re: Offseason Transactions

Once you regress his babip, how is Santana more valuable than Happ? Happ has more years of control, is a better defender, younger and within easy range of Santana in performance, if not equal. (again, that's after regressing Santana's babip) If we could have had Salazar for Happ straight up, it wou...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

FanGraphs saying the Cubs need Darvish makes me really care less about signing Darvish. I liked Mr. 'if Ozuna and Pham outperform projections by 5 wins then the Cubs and Cards are basically the same' suggesting that the Cubs' having several players projected to get better after down years is someho...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

The thing I don't understand is that the Brewers have had a good farm system before, and in not too distant memory. Did they forget what that was like? Do they not realize that they don't have a wave even close to the Braun/Weeks/Fielder/Hardy/Gallardo group that got them one division title and a wi...

ZiPS came out for the Brewers yesterday. Their depth chart was one win worse than the Cardinals.


Sorry, did I say Cardinals, I actually meant the Reds. Their depth chart was one win worse than the Reds.

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

It really could be nothing but the Giminez signing reminds me of Ross when we were trying to land Lester. As mentioned on the last page, Ross came after Lester was signed. This is true but we were rumored to be interested in Ross before signing Lester and the thought was that it was to lure Jon to ...
