    Another good game from Mayo, and nice flashes from Giannis and Parker. Wolters had a great game as well in limited minutes. Man, I really hate the Bayless signing.

    Definitely looks like a different player. Really hoping he gets off to a good start this season. His contract isn't that bad if he's scoring the way he can.

    Doesn't seem like Giannis played with the same confidence he did in the summer league. Let's remember that he's 19 years old. I don't think anyone who was being realistic about it thought that...

    I don't expect any big acquisitions to be made in the position players department.

    LF- Coghlan
    SS- Castro
    1B- Rizzo
    RF- Soler
    3B- Valbuena
    2B- Baez
    CF- Alcantara
    C- Castillo

    Stating the obvious, Gardner is way faster. McKinney won't ever have anything near that kind of defensive value. Offensively though, I think that's a solid comparison. McKinney definitely has a...

    I kinda expect the Cubs to grab one second tier SP and call it an offseason. Someone like Hammel or Liriano.

    Yeah depending on how you define who is an isn't a prospect, he's in that conversation. Right now I'd go

    Torres has had an outstanding first season. What's really great is at 17 there aren't any glaring holes. K rate <20%, BB rate at 14%, slash line of .297/.386/.440. Adequate tools to stay at SS, and...

    Yeah, definitely don't see them spending any money on the bullpen. Good, cheap arms already up, plus a few more in the system that could end up being good as well.

    I don't think we should expect any big free agent signing this offseason. If there is a big move this offseason, my money would be on trading Castro.

    I don't think Almora's a 30 HR guy, but I definitely think he can be a guy like Castro who can hit quite a few HR's because of the kind of hard contact they make.

    Bryant with another very long out in the 11th. Soler singled, 2-4 HR 2 BB. Nice that he's over that little slump.

    Bucks totally have the pieces to get Bledsoe. Really hope they offer Henson, Middleton+picks. They'd not only get Bledsoe, they'd clear up playing time logjams at the forwards spots.

    Another great game for Schwarber. 1-2 HR 2 BB. His OPS is up to .880. 17% BB, 21% K.

    So far, looking like a great pick.
