Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Depends on how many fans (I for one don't see the draw in going to restricted capacity games), but just having fans as ambient noise for baseball games would be nice. Why don’t you see the draw? Just personal preference. I can watch games at home on TV if I don't want to (or can't, in this case) be...

Re: Arenado's Cardinal Sin

I'm sure someone STL has given away in one of these trades since Dan Haren in the Mark Mulder deal has turned out to be pretty good, but I don't remember any of them.

That doesn’t help Although if it makes us feel any better, his career slash away from Coors is .263/.322/.471, 79 OPS+ If only we could count on that, but it's been well documented that the wildly different things the ball does in Colorado screws with guys when they're away from Colorado, so he'll ...

Re: Joc

Joc is mostly just a fun house mirror version of Schwarber. My guess is when we dig in deeper on certain aspects (high fastballs?) he fairs much better and thus compliments the current lineup better. Supposedly his contact profile is slightly better. And he's likely going to be better in LF than Sc...

I don't think they can actually make any trade right now right?

They can't be officially processed until March but they can be agreed to at any time.

Re: Cubs Sign Austin Romine

Romine put up acceptable backup-catcher numbers in 2018 and '19 and was graded as good on defense. He put up DFA-worthy numbers on both sides of the plate last year.

Oddly enough the tweet that crazy person replied to sums up my thoughts pretty nicely. People can have diversity in which teams play in the biggest games or they can have a 'true' national champion. They probably aren't going to get both.

You make some good points. Why not limit the number of top prospects a school can get, or put stronger limits on them? That’s basically what the NFL does through the cap.

I can’t believe how little Fields has done tonight. I’m sure he’s still hurt from the semi but 9-18 for 138 isn’t good. He was 12/27 for 114 yards and 2 picks in the big ten championship.
