Does seem a little light, but I expect this year to be much like 2016 where the regular season is essentially semantics and we’ll be able to limit innings and skip starts/go 6-man rotation the last month+ Yeah, I hope that is the case.

Re: 2018 rotation

Don’t really care what the order is as long as Lester/Q don’t go back to back since they are most similar and let Lester be the opening day starter as the vet. This rotation is gonna kick ass.

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

I don’t think that’s how it works at all I'm pretty sure it is, but of course I can't find the details right now. It’s not. It’s the total potential guaranteed amount divided by potential guaranteed years. If incentives/bonuses are hit in a given year it will be adjusted accordingly for that year. ...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

I’m fine with an opt out after 2 years, would’ve hoped it was 3 but whatever. I wonder what the actual cash outlay is in the deal, wouldn’t be surprised if he’s getting around $60 million the first 2 years. That would mean for luxury tax calculations for the next two years, it would put the Cubs at...

I wonder if they had the same offer but was contingent on a trade to move salary and at the end of the day they couldn’t get a trade done? Also Rosenthal said in order to get to 150 he needs to win multiple CY Youngs so ...

Re: It turns out the real Yu Darvish was the friends we made in this thre

But why do that if you don’t have to? They’d still like some wiggle room for in-season moves as well. I’m sure the Cubs will up their offer a little bit (perhaps quite a bit) if they feel the need to here. Right now it sure appears they’re in a position of power. I agree, I’m just being impatient a...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Not a good day for Heyman. He got called our for reporting the D'backs had a similar offer to the Red Sox 5/125 offer for Martinez by being told it's not true and just Boras using the media to spread rumors. Then he had an article (since taken down) saying he talked to a friend of Donaldson who told...
