    Lombardy region in Italy.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    I think South Korea and Hong Kong show that Lombardy should not need to happen if you get tests up and running which it is just absurd it has now made such little progress 6 weeks now into this being a distinct threat. South Korea has now seen a 4-day drop. The test and isolate can scale quite well if you can get to it before the capacity-issues facing Lombardy. So, no, I don't think the US should shut itself down, but reasonable restrictions like mass rallies, schools, and sporting events when cities are in a growth phase need to happen. The gov't could counteract quite a bit of that through fiscal measures.

    Respiration is incredibly important to keeping afflicted people alive. Including for the worst cases oxygenation directly into blood cells.

    Detmers would be the perfect fit to me, but feels like that’s a smaller shot.

    Lost it in the seventh with two outs on a wild pitch

    McCann Trade Speculation

    Very true.

    McCann Trade Speculation

    Right, especially when our pitching staff has so many young players, having two catchers that know what they are talking about is helpful.

    McCann Trade Speculation

    I do think it sucks for him personality that in his FA year, one year after he gives you an all-star season for pennies, to put him in a serious backup position. I don't want to trade him and I don't think the value we'll get will exceed his value, but it does suck, especially a clubhouse where everyone is getting locked up.
  10. This draft is loaded with arms but they are college arms. Not a particularly strong prep arm draft, lots of short right handers.

    Y2Jimmy > National Reports (Moncada extended 5 years)

    Maybe more like Trea Turners 7.5 settlement.

    Y2Jimmy > National Reports (Moncada extended 5 years)

    So the argument is that Moncada will be underpaid if he wins MVP this year...

    I'm sure Pippen would not feel that much solidarity over this $100 million deal.

    Y2Jimmy > National Reports (Moncada extended 5 years)

    Right. It's a very reasonable deal, I'm just surprised it got done because there was not much urgency to sign one and this isn't a deal so low that you'd say moncada was just clamoring for a deal, or so high that moncada would feel a lot of pressure to sign it. Just a pretty normie deal. Really impressed this got done, happy for the org and for myself that I get to watch my son watch the same awesome players for his first sports years.

    but he's not a free agent. He'd be considerably cheaper than 15 AAV in all likelihood for the next 4 years of the deal. The sox were already getting surplus value during his control years (though maybe not much in arb 3). So they are increasing the cost for the next few years in order to get additional years of control at a reasonable price for those years.

    Y2Jimmy > National Reports (Moncada extended 5 years)

    I think I got thrown off by the 9 year report because was still thinking this would come in around 120-130. This isn't that cheap, but also not expensive. It's a deal you don't have to sign, so really glad they pulled it off.

    High schooler pitchers I just want athleticism, athleticism, athleticism and spin rate. That’s more of the Mackenzie gore writeup. Kelly I worry about, it’s a writeup of hitting physical maturity earlier, I worry about usage and wear there. I don’t know, not sold this is the right play for this draft but hard to know how it shakes out.

    Man what a thrill
  22. hard not to see that deal as good news. They had similar leverage, less leverage, a player with more production. I don't know, we'll see.

    I would like to see this bears oline perform with a quarterback who can do presnap reads and coverage adjustments, and like, hit receivers in stride, before making these judgments.
