  1. I'm on board with that trade for sure. Not positive that a 2nd could be obtained for Jones, but I wouldn't mind a 3rd/5th combo for him either.

    I get that point, but that shouldn't make them have to pay a trade premium as well. It may make their FO more willing to pay more in a trade, but a separate player's trade value should be independent of the team's ability to bring in a FA. You mean Trammel, who himself was a comp pick and taken at 35 overall? But then again I'm probably just lower on Gray than you guys. HRs allowed has been his buggaboo for the past few years, even going back to Oakland, and pitching in GAB isn't going to help with that.

    Supposedly that will only be the deal if the Reds can extend Gray, but yeah, that's too much. The sandwich pick alone seems like too much to me.

    Then Rizzo can make a quick plug for Planned Parenthood and that St. Louis style pizza is the worst he's ever had.

    Sign me up. That's exactly what I want as well. Obviously, if Haskins somehow fell to 13, I take him. But he's the only QB this draft that I would put a 1st round grade on.

    If they could get that 2nd back, I would do it in a heartbeat. He wasn't even impressive as a receiver. For someone who was so absurdly athletic at the combine, he sure looked stiff when the whistle started.

    Um......progress?

    I like the "losers" part. Kris Bryant has never played on a big league team that has won fewer than 92 games, nor one that didn't make the playoffs. Where have you been in October since that "loser" bounced your sorry *** from the playoffs in 2015?

    I went for the LOLs, but had to quit reading after about 10 of those posts. All of them calling for Hicks to throw 105 at Bryant's head. I mean, damn.

    I'm actually not upset by the Ottavino contract. He has exactly one good season under his belt; is entering his age 33 season; wasn't rosterable as recently as 2017; and had TJS a few years ago. He absolutely was fantastic in 2018, no question. But with all that above and the caveat that relievers are notoriously fickle by nature, is that a guy you give $15 million a year to for multiple years? I think 3/$30 is a fair deal for him and 3/$27 isn't all that far off.

    Those comments by Ricketts yesterday have me moving way too close to riot level. I will refrain until Harper/Machado sign with someone, but it's not going in the right direction.

    I would put "half-assed" in quotes. Apparently that's a monster offer for this offseason. This is ridiculous. Cubs are going to be announcing their new network this weekend at the Cubs convention. Early estimates are that it will bring the team around $300 million annually. ANNUALLY. If they don't pony up and buy one of these 2 young superstars, I rage.

    So, this was really effing fun to watch again. Also something that I probably needed.
  15. Draft Discussion 2019

    1. I'm fine with that for 2019. See what Falk has. 2. Of course they would research what it would take to move up and get Haskins. But that cost would almost certainly be too prohibitive. Still need to draft a QB somewhere though, even if it's in the 7th. 3. I love Wentz, but that back injury is scary. I don't love the idea of blowing multiple 1st rounders on the injury history. 4. Hard pass on putting Murray in any position where he would be taking more hits.
