Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

https://twitter.com/arashmadani/status/1083801894986772480?s=21 Jays are paying $16-18 million of his salary. Between just cutting and eating all of Tulo’s money and now this amount they’re eating I’m surprised we didn’t work out a Chatwood or Heyward swap for one of or both Tulo/Martin. Seemed to m...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

So they have two spots for Torres, Grigorious, Tulo and LeMahieu. Trade coming? Didi might not be back at all this year. It’s Tulo/Torres have SS, DJ/Torres have 2B, Andujar/DJ 3B and both them could play some 1B. It’s not that crowded, especially since Tulo hasn’t played in 2 years and they also h...

Re: Minor League Musings

MLB.com listed the hardest thrower in each system and picked Marquez: Cubs: Brailyn Marquez, LHP, (Cubs No. 4) Marquez's $600,000 bonus represented the most money given to a left-handed pitcher during the 2015-16 international signing period, and the Dominican has since emerged as one of the Cubs' ...

Which one of their SP’s that’s not coming off shoulder surgery and projected for under 1.5 WAR is your favorite?

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread AKA The Rickettssss take a dump on EVERYTHING

NL Central standings, August 2019. Camera scrolls past Cardinals and DNLCCVB before stopping on the Cubs. *record scratch* Yeah, that’s me. You’re probably wondering how I ended up in this situation. It all started with a couple of pitchers. horsefeathers it, that’s some mighty fine doom bonnering ...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread AKA The Rickettssss take a dump on EVERYTHING

There is still no logical explanation for picking up Hamels option if money is that tight. And even on the small chance that it is, you can still fix that! if the Cubs felt it was incredibly important to pick up the Hamels option at that point, that means they thought they were getting a good deal,...

There is still no logical explanation for picking up Hamels option if money is that tight. The SP needs reasoning has already been laid out and I agree with it. But picking up Hamels option also let us dump $7 million with trading Smyly (the Rangers were on the hook for the buyout of Hamels option ...

The Cubs would love a shot at Harper, though ownership approval continues to appear unlikely, sources say. https://theathletic.com/759967/2019/01/10/rosenthal-the-question-lingers-how-far-would-the-nationals-go-to-sign-bryce-harper/ So either Theo and the FO is leaking this to publicly put pressure...

I keep thinking it's gotta be the TV projections somehow not being what they were wanting. Or Bryce is happening and they're waiting for the convention to announce it... please? Harper is meeting with the Phillies in Vegas on Saturday, so this isn't happening. Convention is next weekens, right? He’...

Re: Brewers sign Grandal

Good move for them. With his elite framing and their devil magic he improves them a ton since C was so weak for them last year. I would assume this is their one big spend, they will be at $120 mil with this move which has historically been as high as they go when they are competitive from the late 0...

if the nats get harper, does that mean they're moving eaton? He doesn’t make much money, so they shouldn’t have to move him for that reason. Given his injury history and splits I’d assume he’d just move to a platoon OF’er with Taylor/Robles (could even keep Robles in AAA for a while to work on thin...

The Ricketts bought the Cubs, Wrigley, and 25% of Comcast for $900m in 2009. For simplicity, let's say they just bought the Cubs for $900m. In 2018, Forbes estimated the Cubs were worth $2.8b. With a B. So, no, I don't give a horsefeathers how much money they are or aren't making on a year to year ...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I don't see any that really stand out too much. I'd probably hit the under on the Twins and Rockies. Over on the Braves and Nats? Under on the Brewers. Yup. Rays, Dodgers (because the division sucks), Braves (though seems trap level low) and Nats over, Tigers, Royals, and D’backs unders jump out to...
