Re: Which Crazy Surprise Things Will Happen?

Agree that Darvish and Almora seem the most likely. At first I thought it was Schwarber, but man .950 is a high high bar, he'd have to hit like .285 with best ever power. Chatwood could happen especially with Hickey, maybe I think that's less likely because unless someone else tanks you're then in ...

Re: Sports Media Thread

Mannnnnnn, between Sahadev and Mooney, the Athletic's Cubs coverage is in a great great place. Worth the price alone (not to mention the Bears content too...Bulls coverage seems MEH).

And I was a big anti-Athletic guy

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

At some point the Cubs' model of buying a rotation rather than developing one, and having a so-so bullpen will catch up to them. how is this even a thought a person has? and why does it seem like 95% of baseball fans online think that there's something inherently better about players who were draft...

Which Crazy Surprise Things Will Happen?

Every year, crazy surprise stuff happens like huge breakouts or major underperformance...with the sheer quantity of young extremely talented players this team has, there's room for lots of that type of thing.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Maddux said Himes told him during the 92 ASB that he hadn't yet won 20 games or a CY so therefore he would not be paid commensurate to what he felt he was worth. Maddux then went on a rampage and ran away with the CY. I'm having a tough time finding details on a last ditch effort by either party. H...

I watched that special on mlbn about the 90s Braves. They talked about the deal they had for Bonds before the 92 season. The players going to Pittsburgh were Alejandro Pena, Keith Mitchell, PBTNL. Imagine if they were able to complete that deal and then extend him and sign Maddux the following off-...
