    Bryant has some pretty special power. Whether or not it's completely at Stanton levels, I think we can all agree that a world in which Bryant's numbers are in the ballpark of Stanton is something...

    No need to spend any money on the bullpen, as it's pretty damn good as is and more help may be on the way.

    Shoot for a TORP (I've come around on the Lester idea), maybe a 2nd SP, and let's go.

    It's amazing to go back to April and now and to think just how much this team has changed.

    The same argument that was made for Darwin Barney a few seasons ago should be made for Castillo. When expensive, you're right, he's not wonderful. However, as is, he's a decent option for his next...

    I'm extremely "meh" on Russ Martin. I'd be perfectly fine with Castillo.

    They've also been hit with a major rash of injuries and jettisoning talent at the deadline, where as the Cubs throughout the last 2 months have only added talent.

    It's also variance and bad...

    The play should have been something that makes you mad. It was boneheaded, and selfish. There certainly deserves to be some "in-the-moment" backlash and folks being upset because it cost the tying...

    It is, but situational things (like tonight) hurt. Even if it's marginal...it still can ONLY be negative.

    No reason not to be upset at it.

    And it's wrong every single time. Watching you **** can only hurt, not help (you don't get bonus points for watching) so it's not risk/reward...it's just risk. Bit him in the ***. And the team.

    Don't go overboard on Schwarber. His floor is much less then that of an .800 OPS hitter. We have yet to see how he'll adjust to the higher levels of the minors. Many of players who "had a floor of...

    Soler is unlikely to play tonight. He was called up ~12am EST. He would be unlikey to 1) get a flight to Cincinnati that early and 2) be that well rested to play.

    I assume he's a Wednesday start

    He also spent significant time in LF last year in college, so unlike Mendy/Baez, he does come in with knowledge of the position. At this point I'm not sure of the plan for Bryant but Bryant to the...

    Really is.

    Plus we still have an offseason which could legitimately see us add one TORP and a secondary piece.

    I truly think we can get 85 wins next year.

    I doubt it at this point. If it's defensively handeling LF, you could probably assume he'll get enough work in over the winter. And I doubt we're going to hold him down with a team who could be as...

    Not so sure about that.

    BJ has been worth -1.0 fWAR and ~ -3 bWAR. Jackson has put up positive fWAR while also being worth -3 bWAR.

    It would seem to me that they're both hot piles of...

    If the years were the same, I'd have the same feeling: why? Upton is garbage. So is Jackson. Trading hot garbage for hot garbage equals a net of hot garbage. I'm all for just DFA'ing Jackson if...

    I still have Almora above McKinney, but it's getting a hell of a lot closer. I wouldn't say he's "easily" the better prospect. He has way out-hit Almora at Daytona and his plate approach is miles...

    No. Just...no. The offense doesn't get better because you subtract a supremely talented player like Jackson. It hasn't shown. Honestly, the first team hasn't looked gangbusters in the preseason,...
