  1. Sticky: Wasn't disagreeing with any of that. Or ever. ...

    Wasn't disagreeing with any of that. Or ever. Ruggiano was.

    We definitely need a CF'er now. Be interesting to see which one they bring in. Perhaps a Revere.
  2. Sticky: I can't tell if this is light hearted or not.

    I can't tell if this is light hearted or not.
  3. Sticky: AFL is wonky. It's more for tuner and work than...

    AFL is wonky. It's more for tuner and work than it is really as tea-leaf reader. He had two appearances in AAA, both starts. He's not a RP yet.

    Injuries don't usually have him drop players...
  4. Sticky: Sounds like Meyers could be headed to Seattle,...

    Sounds like Meyers could be headed to Seattle, while Taijuan Walker will find his way to SD, and prospects to TB.

    Jason Churchill of 1090 Seattle (the Fan) reporting, but Chris Cotillo, just...
  5. Sticky: Absolutely this is the case. We can stop the...

    Absolutely this is the case. We can stop the run. We can get to the QB. Look back at our best defensive games this year and it was when our front 7 absolutely pasted the other team's OL. NYG,...
  6. Sticky: They did. Just saying why people think there...

    They did. Just saying why people think there should be an extra penalty. There probably should, but the rules allowed what they did, so it is what it is.

    They skirted the law pretty heavily. ...

    Smith has huge K/9 numbers and is a SP. In AAA he posted a 9+ K/9 and a mid 2 BB/9. He had a forearm injury but he has a B- grade from Sickles.

    As a 3rd piece? He's a good upside-third piece....
  9. Sticky: For a franchise who is easily worth over $500m, a...

    For a franchise who is easily worth over $500m, a $1.5m penalty is nothing. They re-negged the deal they agreed on with Nix at the last moment, to avoid going over the cap, which would have resulted...

    I have a feeling they're keeping LF open long term for Bryant. At least on the chance that Baez/Russell/Bryant/Castro are all still here and productive.

    We haven't really been connected to a...
  11. Sticky: Sounds like Wil Meyers will be dealt to SD.

    Sounds like Wil Meyers will be dealt to SD.

    http://www.minorleagueball.com/2014/12/7/7351045/chicago-cubs-top-20-prospects-for-2015

    That's an excerpt from John Sickles' most recent Cubs-prospects write up.

    :shrug:

    Those guys suck too. They cost 2-3x that of Motte. And honestly, there isn't anything on the market that $4.5m is going to stop us from getting. Nothing. Even if they decide it's...

    I'm going to take something you mentioned about Rasmus and apply it to Motte here.

    2014 Motte sucks. But if Theo Epstein and Chris Bosio believe that there are underlying talents here that can...
  15. Sticky: Goddamnit I forgot about that turd.

    Goddamnit I forgot about that turd.
  16. Sticky: Don't forget, both CJ Edwards and Pierce Johnson...

    Don't forget, both CJ Edwards and Pierce Johnson should be ready mid-season. While neither projects as a #1, Edwards has sneaky #2 talent (even if his frame concerns for durability), and Johnson has...
  17. Sticky: Arrieta is a #2. We're fine in the rotation...

    Arrieta is a #2.

    We're fine in the rotation right now. We've got a solid 1-4 in Lester/Arrieta/Hendricks/Hammel. All we need is one of Wood/Turner/Doubront/Wada to step up as a respectable 5...

    Right now, I doubt Motte is going to be that high in the pecking order. You have to figure in terms of RHP, Rodon, Ramirez, and Strop already trump him for late inning games. Motte likely is in the...
  19. Sticky: Revere and Aoki would both fill in as good LHP...

    Revere and Aoki would both fill in as good LHP hitters to compliment Cogs. Shocking, since both hit LH but both hit superior against that side.

    Aoki is the better hitter. Revere the better...
  20. Sticky: The Royals are a team who do not seem to be a...

    The Royals are a team who do not seem to be a real playoff contender fresh off the W.S. appearance. They've already hemorrhaged Shields, Butler and Aoki. While they did go out and add Rios and...

    :shrug: I teach at a school which has a large Latin-American population (Out of ~900 students, around 30-40% tend to be of Latin American descent each year, ranging from all nations). From my...

    At a 1 year deal I wouldn't have.

    The issue with Gregerson wasn't the AAV. It was the years. RP's are so volatile that years are really worrisome. They're volatile. I much prefer going the...

    Masterson and Anderson are different types of pitchers than Motte, however. 2 are starters, one a bullpen arm. One does not effect the other, so to say "well just add like the $4.5m to the other...

    Honestly...like what? We're at ~$100m right now. We've got plenty of cash to burn right now.

    At $4.5m...this is no more than a drop in the pan. Not many players are worth much if they're...
