  1. If CPD backtracks on their 8/28 statement, Jerry needs to be investigated and ideally arrested for bribing a public official. It's clear as day the shot(s) came from inside the park, but hey, it's the Chicago way.
  2. The only hope I cling to is Jerry is clearing out the old guard and anybody that makes money to avoid any potential albatross on or off field personnel that may hinder a sale of the team in the next 3-5 years. During that time frame I expect nothing but pain and a redux of the "The Kids Can Play!" era.
  3. We’re seriously at this level of cope? TA lost the fight because Jose had batting gloves on? A quick product search tells me Franklin batting gloves are less than 1 mm thick.
  4. ah yeah, it’s us fans that are the problem and not the clown that flicks them off and throws hands, wild take
  5. This I believe the rumor was they entertained talks for a short period and Lucas wanted $125-$150M and the Sox were closer to $50M so they didn't even bother discussing further.
  6. Elvis has to lead the league in balls called strikes on him this year, it’s really something
  7. and the last long term viable 2B to play in this organization sadly
  8. I think he can still be a very good, but not elite hitter. His baseball savant numbers are interesting. Still hitting the ball hard, he historically has struggled with sliders and mashed fastballs, in 2023 he's got a 7 run value on sliders, but -3 on 4 seamers. BABIP is the lowest of his career thus far, I still have some hope he can be more consistent. If he's a .250-.270 guy with 25-30 HRs and 70-100 RBI's I'm fine with that, but it would be better if he learned to draw some walks. Those numbers aren't going to thrill the folks with the lofty expectations of the 3rd overall pick however.
  9. MJ should buy the Sox out of spite now, could he be any worse an owner than JR?
  10. The Dodgers active payroll goes from about $229M in '23 to about $110M in '24. Difficult to imagine he lands anywhere else.
  11. I think MLB needs to take a serious look at the "Driveline" school and those like it and what they are doing to pitchers. They claim they work in proper mechanics, but the weighted ball training and focus on velocity and spin probably has a correlation to increased arm injuries. The flip side to that argument is modern medicine has allowed a larger swath of players to continue playing, whereas back before modern TJS if you blew out your elbow you were done for life, so only the genetic freaks were able to have long sustained careers. Now we have more talent, but more injury prone players making the bigs.
  12. Ugh man, forgot about that rumor. Was it Madrigal and Crochet and then they wanted Vaughn and that killed the deal, or am I misremembering?
  13. Yeah that seemed like a miss there. 28 years old, woulda been worth a shot. Wonder if his covid policy breaking antics with Clevinger weighed into that decision.
