    I think that included $10 million or so for Samardzija.
  2. Maybe you'll believe Theo? Chicago and Oakland...

    Maybe you'll believe Theo?
    Chicago and Oakland talked about a Samardzija for Russell deal, but Epstein said the one-for-one framework didn't work. He spoke with Beane on Thursday night, and that's...
  3. McKinney has done great, but at the time of trade...

    McKinney has done great, but at the time of trade he wasn't a top 100 prospect, the pitcher had lost 3 mph off of his fastball and the PTBNL may be not worth a lot according to Law. It was a great...
  4. According to Beane, Russell wasn't on the table...

    According to Beane, Russell wasn't on the table for Samardzija, it took both Samardzija and Hammel to get him.

    You can't just compare FIP from previous years and different leagues and say that a...
  5. Shortstops that do everything well are super...

    Shortstops that do everything well are super valuable, like 5-6 fWAR valuable.

    Not to nitpick, but at the time of trade Samardzija had 3.10/3.20 FIP/xFIP and the Cubs had to include another...

    Because the Cubs shouldn't have got him in the first place for Samardzija/Hammel?
  7. I don't see Wheeler for Russell straight up as a...

    I don't see Wheeler for Russell straight up as a fair value at all. Wheeler has a 3.54/3.52 FIP/xFIP and I'm not sure that he has the upside of Samardzija. The Cubs couldn't get Russell in a...

    2 $20 million pitchers might get the payroll up to $100 million. I'm not terribly concerned that the Cubs will be pushing their payroll max anytime before 2020. I like the idea of the Cubs planting...

    Weak. If your going to do it, do it well. I had a car accident as a 17 year old, I'm unsure of how long I was out, but when answering questions such as where you live I was giving an address from...

    A mild TBI (traumatic brain injury) has a loss of consciousness for less than 30 minutes. Moderate is 30 minutes to 6 hours and severe is greater than 6 hours. As long as the brain has oxygen and...

    Pitcher aging curves, but I'm sure you've seen them before.

    Shields FIP/xFIP at 30 3.42/3.25
    Shields FIP/xFIP at 32 3.73/3.64

    You really think when he's 34/35 it is going to be close to what...
  13. I'm not sure I want to use sustained success with...

    I'm not sure I want to use sustained success with a pitcher that will be 33 next year. I can see him being good next year and maybe even 2016, but I think the Cubs window will start in 2016 and when...

    He would have to sign a waiver letting the Astros draft him. Anytime a player is drafted and doesn't sign he has to sign the waiver to let the drafting team draft him again.

    I saw him on Sunday in Omaha. I wouldn't say he looked stiff, just awkward because of his height. He just has a lot of moving parts. I think the Cubs have better in house options for third,...

    A player has to be with a team from the start of season to have draft pick compensation with a QO.

    The Yankees have 1.) a ton of money 2.) A need for 2-3 starting pitchers. I think signing any of the good starting pitchers this off season is going to be incredibly difficult and expensive.

    If your getting a staff of ground ball pitchers, the better infield defense would be far more valuable.

    When you fail the drug test and get off on a technicality it is past the accused stage. Especially when you get caught you finally admit it.

    The problems teams are having is they need to be on basic cable with high carriage fees. The carriers are willing to put them on a sports tier, where people would have to choose to buy it. The...

    Total free agency led the Yanks to winning 12/17 World Series. No thank you. It would be nice if the scrapped the pools. Since the owners want to keep amateur talent costs down, just put a limit...

    So Castro's rank so far this season for SS

    OBP 7th
    SLG 4th
    wOBA 4th
    wRC+ 4th

    Give me a few more average players like that and I'd be really happy about the Cubs offense.
