    Please don't.  We do much better when you are in melt down mode.

    I'll continue ripping this team a new asshole if it means they keep winning :cool:

  2. Dare I say that I have moved to......cautiously optimistic???

    I'm probably staying there until I see what Robert and Jimenez look like when they return. 

    Go get some bullpen arms and a RF.

    Maybe they could do a 3 way deal to facilitate things with Mark, Ball and a 3rd team.  But in general they are in a really bad spot.  I personally think this is as bad as the Bulls roster construct has been in the past 15 years.  Non-existent lottery picks, limited players with true upside, and your best player is walking in a year if you can't turn it around. 

    The flipside of this is - you can still blow it up and probably recoup quite a bit if you flip Lavine & Vuc and basically start over.  I'm like not a fan of that approach - but it feels like that is the destiny of this squad by the all star break, unless we see a new player step up/elevate their game (i.e., Williams/White).  This would change a bit of lottery balls worked in their favor this year as well.  Or if Ball or whichever FA they signed really played at a high level (ie. if you got Ball and he started to really show case true potential - but right now he's still a pretty mediocre player and that is coming from someone who likes the idea of Ball - but partially because the Bulls hand is so forced given the Vuc deal).  

    I think they thought they had to make the Vucevic deal as an attempt to keep Lavine around. If it doesn't work, then they have to blow it up.......the bad part about that scenario is the question of whether or not they could recoup what they gave up? Then again....What do the Magic get if the lotto balls bounce in the Bulls favor? They just don't get the picks? 

    BTW I'm going to be kinda annoyed if the Nets win it all this year.......This super-team crap has to stop. It used to happen organically.....it's not like MJ and Pippen signed with the Bulls as FAs......Shaq signed with the Lakers but they drafted and developed Kobe, and he was a rookie the year they signed Shaq. 

    It's beyond annoying, and it's putting a lot of teams at a competitive disadvantage.

    I mean, I'd take a Top 4 pick. Suggs could be anywhere in top 4, but I'd be ecstatic with Green or Kuminga, then going full court press for Ball.

    Isn't the thing that they'd have to let Markkanen and Young walk for nothing in order to even attempt an OS for Ball? 

    Maybe they can clear some room by trading them for mid 1st rounders.

    When will they stop trying to make him into a point guard?  His ceiling is backup Zach.

    I've always said that White reminds me of Ben Gordon or Jamal Crawford. Dude can score. White's best role is as a 6th man that just scores. Given that the Bulls have Lavine, there's really not a fit here because they play the same position. 

    White is a guy I'd trade at the next deadline. The Bulls really need to either win a top 2 pick or get Ball.

    He will not have the hit tool Madrigal has, won't happen

    If Mendick hits .260/.330 with decent power isn't that more valuable than Nick "Slappy McSlapperson" Madrigal? 

    With Madrigal out for the year It will be interesting. I'd imagine we will be debating all winter.

    Thompson is 20 years old and has almost no minor league experience, so maybe slow your roll here?

    obviously I mean right now in the Sox ability to trade to add to the MLB team. 

    Kelley is starting to get a Kolek/Pint vibe from me. Just one man's opinion though. 

    idk if selling him injured is a good idea, but if he has a good performance soon I'd sell as high as possible.

    Honest about what? 

    After today cease will be in the top 15 in MLB in pitcher WAR. 

    Giolito isn't good enough to start in the playoffs either?

    Jack, are only 12 pitchers in baseball worth starting in the playoffs or something?

    Goodwin mania!

    There are about 12 pitchers I'd be comfortable with starting a playoff game, yes. Maybe fewer than that. 

    Anyone that isn't the best of the best I'd be nervous with on the mound in the playoffs. So like I'd be comfortable with de Grom, Bieber, A Gerrit Cole using spin enhancing goop, and that's about it.
