    A different way to view the value of the pick...

    A different way to view the value of the pick swap would be to look at the difference in value of the two picks from the draft pick value charts. 45 - 9.4 = 35.6 That value falls right between the...
  2. They better damn well get something for him. At...

    They better damn well get something for him. At the very least, a pick swap.
  3. Holy crap. Glad I was wrong on the Coghlan deal...

    Holy crap. Glad I was wrong on the Coghlan deal not being something to read into.
  4. Not really sure that there's more to read into...

    Not really sure that there's more to read into this. He didn't have a pathway to regular playing time going into the season and was set to make $4.8M. The Cubs probably think they can save that...

    Guessing Coghlan was kept as insurance in case Soler was moved for a pitcher and now the Cubs are just dumping salary? Also opens up a spot for a true CF, whether that's Sczcur or someone else.
  7. I don't see a problem with comparing him to...

    I don't see a problem with comparing him to Kiermaier. He has the raw athletic tools to be Kiermaier's defensive equal. The ultimate question is whether you think he can improve and become that...
  8. Seems fairly balanced. From the Cubs...

    Seems fairly balanced. From the Cubs perspective, with the team as constructed, I think they'd rather be on the side receiving quality over quantity. Also, absorbing Castillo's contract might put...
  9. I don't disagree that he has a very good range...

    I don't disagree that he has a very good range rating. The point is, that with speed being Hamilton's entire game, that really needs to be elite.
  10. The weird thing with Hamilton is that his...

    The weird thing with Hamilton is that his defensive stats aren't that impressive. Not having a strong ARM rating is understandable, but with his speed, his range should be far better than it is. ...
  11. Not always. Knowing Papelbon on a new team is...

    Not always. Knowing Papelbon on a new team is most definitely a bad thing.
  12. If you can't decide what to think of something...

    If you can't decide what to think of something the Cubs do, check Facebook and assume the opposite. You'll be right the vast majority of the time.
  13. Inciarte by himself put up 3.3 WAR last season,...

    Inciarte by himself put up 3.3 WAR last season, albeit almost all from CF defense. And toss Swanson and Blair on top of that? Thought they were getting smarter when they replaced Towers with...
  14. Wow did the D'Backs just get owned. Inciarte,...

    Wow did the D'Backs just get owned. Inciarte, Swanson, and Blair for Miller?!
  15. Pitching staff's getting pretty crowded... SP...

    Pitching staff's getting pretty crowded...

    SP (5): Arrieta, Lester, Lackey, Hendricks, Hammel
    RP (8): Rondon, Strop, Grimm, Ramirez, Brothers, Richard, Wood, Cahill
    Even without: Medina,...
  16. I wouldn't be so sure about that. The one thing...

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. The one thing the Dodgers don't lack for is money. They could easily afford two relievers for $10M+ each to shorten games for them. The bigger challenge would be...
  17. I wasn't disagreeing with your first comment,...

    I wasn't disagreeing with your first comment, just pointing out that there are a lot of different ways to look at it.
  18. Yes, but it gets even more complicated when you...

    Yes, but it gets even more complicated when you consider the playoffs. Maybe the Reds get the rebuild right and challenge in a few years, but the Dodgers have the potential to be the #1 competition...
  19. Mixed feelings on Chapman to the Dodgers. One...

    Mixed feelings on Chapman to the Dodgers. One hand, you want the Dodgers to severely overpay to feel better about not getting him and just because it's the Dodgers. Other hand, you want the Reds to...
  20. Poll: I know a lot of people on here are down on him...

    I know a lot of people on here are down on him and decline/injury are big risks at his age, but $15M or so per year on a short term deal for a guy who was good enough to get a Cy Young vote last year...
  21. Poll: And he just turned 18 now. Still years away. ...

    And he just turned 18 now. Still years away. Any number of things can go wrong in that time. I chose that point in time, though, because it's the only point in time where there was a clear value...
  22. Poll: The kid was signed a year ago for 250k and hasn't...

    The kid was signed a year ago for 250k and hasn't pitched above rookie ball. It's not like he's some uber prospect. The odds of him making it to the bigs is extremely slim at this point. Why not...

    Also, it should be added that the Bears currently look to have, according to spotrac, about $60M in cap space for next year. Some will be used on the draft, maybe extensions, and such, but you'd...

    Not necessarily. The determination of compensatory picks in the NFL is very complicated. Generally, though, the idea is that the free agents that a team loses are balanced against the free agents...

    It's weird. Usually can find this type of information on the internet if you know how to search for it, but clear guidelines for conditional picks in the NFL don't seem to be out there. After a lot...
