    I'd like to take this opportunity to state for the record that ABTY was never a source in the first place. You have to be right about anything, ever, to be considered a source.

    Who says no first to Hamels straight up for Bogaerts? Boston, right?

    I think it points to Pereza being the plan. I don't have much of an opinon of the trade, but saying the Braves lost it is giving the Cubs a little too much credit.
  4. Sticky: Well come on, that's a pretty massive...

    Well come on, that's a pretty massive overstatement. Byron Buxton still exists. I don't think I'm underrating him. I just think 2B is harder to fill than CF, and if Mendy can play 2B, some team might...

    Yes, but he's not necessarily better than the alternative, minus what it takes to acquire the alternative, plus whatever Alcantara can get us in a trade.

    In theory, Alcantara is more valuable to...

    I completely agree with that sentiment. We're not even 100% his glove can play in CF, we just assume it based on what little we saw.
  7. Sticky: Also, who cares? 6/144 is believable and someone...

    Also, who cares? 6/144 is believable and someone will almost certainly offer that at some point if they have not already.

    McCann would be cool if he were a remotely likeable person. If you don't like Carlos Gomez and Jose Fernandez, I don't like you.

    Regardless, I doubt the Yankees have THAT much buyer remorse over...

    It's been discussed at length on this board in the past, but backloading the contract is the correct thing to do, pretty much 100% of the time. Compared to your model, you've saved $13 million...

    Someone would have to explain to me what Jonny Gomes gives us that Justin Ruggiano doesn't.

    I'm intrigued by him. I should have ranked him higher since the list was based on what you'd have to give up, but I don't know that I'd want to give equal value for him since it's not clear if/when...

    Bryant and Buxton are 3 and 4.

    List of catcher trade candidates, roughly ordered by how much it would take to acquire them. Just a list of rumored guys + teams with a catching surplus. 1-3 would be every day types, 4-7 would be...

    Grandal would be nice but I don't pretend to have any idea what the Padres would want for him.

    Because it's a contact the Cubs can readily take on, the Dbacks would presumably eat some of it, and I think at least a portion of his suckage is superficial. He hits righties well and he sees a ton...

    I defer to Thoyer on pretty much everything, but I hated the pick. I don't think he's particularly likely to bust but I think Anthony Rizzo already plays his MLB position. I just don't see an actual...

    I'll take the opposite viewpoint and hope I'm wrong. And I'll double down and say I don't think he's a major league OF either.

    What's a reasonable Montero package? He's sucked for 2 years and he's locked into $40 mill over the next 3 years. Does anyone top Pierce Johnson and Victor Caratini? Is that too much?

    With the caveat that I don't really know who Devon Travis is, I would have loved for the Cubs to top that offer for Gose. Seems like they somewhat easily could have without surrendering a top 7-8...

    Yeah, I knew Robby was over 30, didn't realize Jacoby was already 30 as well. Which I still consider young enough considering the caliber of player he is reaching the market, but not obviously no...

    If this board didn't have that dumb embedding rule, this post would be a video of Brian Anderson's game ending catch against Minnesota in 2008.
