  1. Sticky: LaRussa hated him and Rasmus actually requested...

    LaRussa hated him and Rasmus actually requested trade. It got so bad Pujols called out Rasmus in the media.
  2. Sticky: I thought the Mets were thinking of moving...

    I thought the Mets were thinking of moving D/Arnaud to LF because of his concussion history.
  3. Sticky: A star isn't a need to win the World Series. ...

    A star isn't a need to win the World Series. Sometimes just a bunch of good players can get you there.
  4. Sticky: On the last 5 World Series teams here is a list...

    On the last 5 World Series teams here is a list of 5 fWAR or higher players.
    Robinson Cano, Bret Gardner
    Andres Torres, Aubrey Huff
    None
    Buster Posey
    Jacob Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, Shane...

    This.

    He is a bright guy and another good addition to the FO.

    Cubs hire Jason Parks as a scout, Gato dies a little inside.
  8. Sticky: Olt topped out at #22 and was bombing at AAA. ...

    Olt topped out at #22 and was bombing at AAA. That is a little bit different than struggling in the majors. Miller threw 64 innings in the majors over 2 years and was still performing well in the...
  9. Sticky: Miller was a BA top 10 prospect in 2007. His...

    Miller was a BA top 10 prospect in 2007. His grand total of major league experience at 22 was 74 innings. Greg Maddux had 180 innings of 5+ ERA at at 20/21. A little early to be calling anybody a...
  10. Sticky: If the Cubs want to win the bidding then 2 of...

    If the Cubs want to win the bidding then 2 of Baez/Bryant/Russell wins. The Red Sox could offer Bogaerts and Betts. The Dodgers 2 of Seagar/Pederson/Urias. Young, cheap mlb players from various...
  11. Sticky: If Stanton gets to the trade market, almost every...

    If Stanton gets to the trade market, almost every team in baseball will be after him. The Cubs will have to outbid teams and it would likely take 2 of Baez/Bryant/Russell + pieces to win the...

    I think that included $10 million or so for Samardzija.
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. Because the Cubs shouldn't have got him in the...

    Because the Cubs shouldn't have got him in the first place for Samardzija/Hammel?
  18. 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...
  19. 2 $20 million pitchers might get the payroll up...

    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...

    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.
