Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Its beyond hilarious that the national media hasn't caught this stuff.....They consistently bring up that Theo always gets his guy...... So, I guess we'll be subjected to tons of articles next off season, bringing these quotes up. "We all should have saw this coming, Theo tried to tell us.&quo...

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

holy crap i will have whatever this guy is having The Brewers weren't supposed to be a playoff contender this quickly. They should still be in their rebuilding years. Meanwhile the Cubs are in the middle of their "window" that was opened after a long, painful rebuild and during which they ...

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...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

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-...
