    Yes, there should be a floor. The NBA has one, but it is just a tad below the cap. I think a floor in today's dollars of $75ish million would be appropriate. This will be negotiated with next CBA.

    13 pitchers is excessive, especially early season.

    What would it take to get Nolan Arenado?

    I've been watching Colorado baseball ever since they got a team, and there is a hangover when they go on the road, and it's not just with Arenado.

    No, he didn't. He kicked ass. He got everyone's attention. There is no perfect solution. Just STFU and let him do his job, which he is doing. Perfection will not happen.

    Madrigal won't struggle; he just has to be promoted at right time.

    My thought exactly. The umpires must have heard the drum banging. Hear no evil? MLB should at least say something to condemn the umps.

    I don't think Cora will get hit as hard as Hinch was.

    I don't see how pitch framing works?

    Framing can be one of those important little things that players do to help win games, but having a stat involved to measure that particular skill set is BS to me.
  13. Cease certainly did not dominate at Charlotte, and he got lit up in the first inning way too often while with Sox. Lots of hits, lots of walks. I wouldn't be surprised if he spends some time in AAA this year.
  14. I think Cease's ceiling is a lot lower than a year ago.
