    DH Options

    Any thoughts on Puig or the Cespedes who has actually already played in the majors?
  2. Let's hope, Sonofa...and nice add, RayRay!
  3. Doesn't mean anything that Wheeler's brothers are retweeting. We brought Jon Jay and Yonder Alonzo to lure Machado...so until it's official...
  4. When you're as old as Jerry, you can be a "new" Jerry.
  5. If I'm Jerry...and I'm nearly old enough to be...that tweet alone pushes me to spend another $5 MM to get him signed.

    Moustakas linked to Sox again

    QUOTE (Tony @ Feb 20, 2018 -> 01:46 PM) I agree on the comp pick, for the length and as much time as Moose would see for the Sox, that doesn’t bother me. But by all reports he plays a slightly above average 3B, doesn’t really get on base and hits HRs (at least in 2017). Unless it’s a VERY good deal, I just don’t like it. I give you...Matt Davidson!

    Mark Lowe and Machi Traded to The White Sox

    QUOTE (fathom @ Jul 21, 2017 -> 05:56 PM) JR being cheap as hell again Jesus! In May, 81-year-old Jerry Reinsdorf spent $52 million to sign 19-year-old Louis Robert. Can we stop typing crap like, "JR being cheap as hell again"? There's no reason to be overspending on anyone who won't be at their peak performance level 2-3-4-5 years from now. Give the owner a break already.

    Teams have upped their offers in Q derby in the last week

    QUOTE (flavum @ Feb 15, 2017 -> 04:28 PM) MLB Network's Top 100 Players Right Now starts tonight. Quintana has never been on this list before. I think he'll be in the first show tonight (81-100). (Q was 77) So teams are balking at trading a couple top prospects for the 77th best player in the game who's also wrapped up with an affordable contract and is a left-handed starting pitcher? Makes no sense. Especially because his classic delivery (lefty Tom Seaver-esque) likely affords him greater durability than Chris Scissorhands, anyway.

    A game I remember

    QUOTE (Lip Man 1 @ Dec 27, 2016 -> 11:37 AM) I actually have the bottom of that 9th inning and Harry's postgame show in my library. It's the WSNS Channel 44 coverage of the game. Shows you what hustling on every play can lead to because you just never know. Mark Is there a link to that, Mark? I'd love to watch it. I was a little kid...went with my brother and grandfather.

    A game I remember

    Aug. 7, 1974 Down one in the bottom of the ninth, Dick Allen breaks up a Nolan Ryan no-hitter with an infield hit. That's followed by an error and a couple more singles. Sox end up winning 2-1, years before the term walk-off was ever coined. http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/CH...197408070.shtml

    Fangraphs not optimistic on Anderson's bat

    Someone can double-check the exact number, but I am nearly certain that Anderson's TWTW metrics are sky high.
  13. The glutton of pitching prospects would have been Bobby Jenks, Bartolo Colon and for us older folks, Wilbur Wood. I believe this is referring to the glut of pitching prospects. FWIW...OK by me.

    How about drafting Libertyville's/TCU's Evan Skoug in June?

    Frazier Trade Discussion

    Puig. It's the double secret probation "Cuban Strategy." Sign all the Cubans and then move the team to Havana. Read it here first. Actually, though, I'm joking only about the sell. The Cuban players have a certain camaraderie/community that comes with shared experience. To offer a micro-community of several Cubans on one team could be a stroke of genius and go a long way to creating a wonderful chemistry.
