    Thanks. And thanks to others for the feedback/kind words. I think it's silly to not want critical (useful) feedback when you can get it. I might not always be able to do anything with it, but the...

    Appreciate the feedback, and I'm not sure if there's a way to engage in the discussion without sounding defensive (totally not - I just find that this is a way to get more honest feedback than folks...

    For what it's worth, that's typically not back-patting (which might happen in about 1 out of 100 posts - sometimes, self-love is OK) - it's usually a method of providing continuity for folks who've...

    That's not necessarily true. Arbitrations pursuant to contract between large corporate entities often proceed very much like full-scale litigation. There is discovery, there are motions/preliminary...

    Reading the actual article, from Gammons, he cites a quote from the Eagles' owner from last Wednesday. It's buried in a long puff piece, and I strongly doubt this is as definitive as the retweeting...

    I'm wondering what you said about the Navarro signing when the Cubs made it last year (when he was sporting a career 76 OPS+). I can only assume you were celebrating it, otherwise you'd look a little...

    @Zamboni -

    I don't think folks at PSD are interested in us airing our dirty laundry. Suffice it to say that there was a whole lot of context to that comment, and it wasn't an attack at you, since...

    Appreciate that, gents.

    And to Zamboni - if you actually got the boot, you join a gigantic list of all of about five people who've been booted over the last five years. If I booted everyone who...

    To Kyle - that "lost" $50 million is probably mostly accounted for by, as you noted, a considerable drop-off in revenue from 2011 to 2012, and the change in the revenue-sharing formula in the new...

    If you exceed the cap by too much, you are limited in your signings the next year (it isn't just a tax penalty if you blow through it by a ton). Given that the Cubs are expected to have one of the...

    I'm that "tard." The report, as noted subsequently in this thread, came from CSNNE. I didn't "claim" anything. I passed on the report.

    Next time, it might be worth checking before calling someone...

    For what it's worth, "Bleacher Report" and "Bleacher Nation" are two very different things. The former contains some of the most absurd, poorly-written garbage on the 'net. The latter is a relatively...

    The good thing about having money to spend this year is less about competing in 2012, but beyond - there are no surefire 1B prospects coming up in the next year, but there are two surefire 1B options...

    The prevailing belief (and that's all it is - no one really knows for sure) is that the Trib tacked on an extra year to get the deal done while Hendry was on a plane.

    Question: would the signing...

    Probably depends on how much the Cubs are hoping to get in return. Mediocre prospects = getting rid of the whole salary. Here's hoping the Cubs are willing to eat some of the salary.

    Sweet Jesus, please just pick someone "on the board." The memory of seeing Hayden Simpson's makeshift placard hung up there last year is making me shiver.
