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.

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 ...

Anyone in the YES market know what they show in the offseason? Do they contract with like a lower level college conference to show games for football/basketball? I’m sure there would be some added Cubs original programming stuff but can only have so much of that. Looks like the Nets are the big thi...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I thought this was an interesting/ominous take at the shifting economics within baseball, and how it's happening at the cost of the players. Definitely has me worried they'll be cruising for another big labor dispute a la the strike sooner rather than later: https://deadspin.com/the-mlbpa-is-failin...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Question: Can the Cubs sign Harper and Kimbrel next offseason without penalty? They will have to go into the Luxury Tax to sign Harper alone, probably even in the (impossible) situation where Heyward opts out. So it's a matter of what penalties are you comfortable with. If you're signing Kimbrel to...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Also, it remains so silly that the idea that 'you might have more good players than you can afford 3 years from now' is considered a risk. Sure maybe you don't have the flexibility to extend a guy that far out, but it's just as much a feature in case Russell or Schwarber's bat doesn't come back arou...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

At the moment, the 3 most important/valuable position players are Bryant, Rizzo, and Contreras. Contreras would be under control for 4 years of Harper, Bryant and Rizzo for 3. Even if it meant you eventually choose between Bryce Harper and the arb years of someone like Schwarber or Russell, you very...
