    Sweet, when are we calling up Gooden and Strawberry? Is this the off-season that Sandy trades for Keith Hernandez and Gary Carter?

    As a fan of a team with tons of young pitching, I'd trade our young pitching for the position player prospects the Cubs have in a nanosecond...but I do think he's going a little too far on the...

    Hanging out with some dude is no big deal. Something like making plans for a trip with him is a big deal.

    That would be super close for me. For the regular season I think Harper>Harvey, but for the playoffs...I'd probably rather have the ace.

    If I'm not mistaken, wOBA ignores IBB completely, so it wouldn't affect his fangraphs WAR one bit.

    Andrus's contract is a disaster. 8 years, $118m when he'd get half of that at most in the FA market, maybe 1/3.

    Yeah, I think Boyd is a practice squad QB. I've never understood why people think he could be a good developmental guy...he has temperament issues, not great at the deep ball, and played in a...

    Sigh. "This one guy is a much better comparison only because it agrees with my argument." Stanton had huge power, solid walks, super high K rate, then turned it around. Look at what he did in...

    Just because two players are somewhat similar doesn't mean it's some slam dunk point of argument.

    Baez's numbers got better every month this year in AAA. Sometimes guys come up to the majors and the league has to adjust to them, but other times they have to adjust to the league. Baez has been...

    You can't just compare BB%, K%, and power, and ignore the fact that there are other things in play...which is why Pena was the #65 prospect at his peak, and Baez is a top 5 prospect. Hernandez was...

    What makes you think Jose Hernandez and Wily Mo Pena are better comps than Pedro Alvarez, who is currently in the majors? Neither Pena nor Hernandez were the prospects Baez is, not even close.

    But even if he's better than Pelfrey, that's not necessarily saying much. He'd have to be significantly better than Pelfrey was. And not only that, but he has to be more valuable to us than Baez...

    The point wasn't to say Baez=Sheffield, but you have to admit he does have absurd HoF-type upside even if there's nearly zero chance of him ever getting his K's down enough to make that happen. I...

    I think so. Baez's bat speed is so obvious it's crazy. Like...Gary Sheffield bat speed. Of course, Sheffield only struck out in 10.7% of his major league plate appearances, and Baez has already...

    Geno definitely looks more like with-Kerley Geno from last year than without-Kerley Geno. Not saying he's going to light the world on fire, but I could see 80-85 QB rating, 58-62% completion...

    He's batting .136/.292/.237 against lefties this year. Lefties aren't going to be walking him in the majors if he can't hit against them. His offensive ceiling is basically Andre Ethier...I'm not...

    Depends on what you define as "reaching their potential." My best bets would be Syndergaard, Conforto, Matz (if he can stay healthy), and Herrera. I don't really dislike any of our best guys but...

    Poll: Do you have the research to back that up?...

    Do you have the research to back that up? Legitimately curious since the "by the book" rule is always go for the tie at home due to the home team's inherent advantages in an extra inning game.

    Home team has the advantage in a tie game, so there's nothing wrong with playing for the tie. Especially when you don't have a great hitter up.
