  1. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Thread

    I don't think there's even that. He couldn't stay healthy pitching once a week in Japan, and now he would be expected to start every 5th day in the US? The track record isn't exactly glowing for healthy arms coming over to the 5 man rotation, nevertheless an already hurt one.

    I would agree. Already has injury history, and that delivery doesn't look suited to starting every 5th day. Could be a really good reliever though.
  3. Week 10: Miami Dolphins (5-4) @ Green Bay Packers (3-4-1)

    I really am trying. I am. But when Brock Osweiler is your team's starting QB; literally your entire starting Oline is hurt; 3 of your WRs are hurt; and your coach insists on not getting touches for the biggest playmaker on the offense, I have a hard time watching.

    That's still over 4 Win production if you extrapolate it. He was worth 5.1 Wins in only 122 games the year before. It's a gamble on his health for sure, but there is still a good bit of upside there. I could certainly see him getting that deal.

    4/64 sounds about right. That's the Justin Turner deal.

    I won't complain at all about the Ricketts. Their purchasing of the team was when this thing turned around. I will, however, complain about the entirety of baseball owners as a whole. I actually do think there may be collusion happening. No idea, but I would bet he is targeting a 4 year deal given that he's entering his age 33 season. Even if he balls out in 2019, what team is willing to throw more years and dollars at him as a 34 year old?

    I'll put on my tinfoil hat for a second and throw it out there that it may just be a way to cover potential owner collusion. We've had reports already this offseason that the 3 biggest pocketed teams are not going to spend (LA, NYY, Cubs).

    I was completely unaware of this and it actually makes the article I posted seem legitimate, rather than standard offseason misdirection. I can't say that I would be upset if the Dodgers bow out of the Harper sweepstakes.

    What the actual hell?

    If they make a strong push for Harper but still miss out, I could get on board. I don't think Donaldson is going to settle for a deal like that though.
  11. BigFin's Big F'n Midseason Mock

    There are strong rumblings that Herbert may not even declare, making the position even weaker. He's the only QB I take in the 1st round and there's no way he's there for the Fins if he does declare. We're probably looking at the 15-18 range. We couldn't afford a trade up to where Herbert would go. I'm not opposed to one of the guys in the 2nd round range though. Definitely need to address the QB position somewhere every year until we find one.

    If this is the case, I riot. What good is having a gigantic financial advantage over the rest of the NL Central if you aren't going to exercise it?
  13. Chicago Cubs Thread - #secondhalfcubs

    Tons of "Cubs aren't going to spend" talk so far this offseason. I don't buy it. I mean they may end up losing out on Harper/Machado anyway, but it won't be due to a lack of trying. You don't pick up the Hamels option if you are concerned about not being able to afford a Bryce Harper.

    With no opt outs. He'll likely get a bigger deal than that on the open market and it will have multiple opt outs.
