  1. Sticky: Its the time to do so. Every other team in that...

    Its the time to do so. Every other team in that division is either rebuilding, retooling, or about to have to make some hard decisions about who to pay and who to let go.
  2. Sticky: Then let's hope we don't trade for him. Id...

    Then let's hope we don't trade for him. Id rather not have a guy who walks 2% of the time taking at bats from Alcantara, Soler, or Bryant. Great sub, but not a starter I'd prefer.
  3. Sticky: I'd rather Baez bust for us than make it...

    I'd rather Baez bust for us than make it somewhere else. His power and bat speed combination, if he puts it together as he has at other levels, is borderline generational. An above average to plus...
  4. Sticky: I think I'd rather go Byrd if I had to take one...

    I think I'd rather go Byrd if I had to take one of the two. If Revere isn't playing in CF he loses a lot of value. Not really enough pop for a LF IMHO.

    Stick him in the bullpen. He's likely a better bat off the bench than some of our options :)
  6. Hamels is making 22 million, not in arbitration....

    Hamels is making 22 million, not in arbitration. Also, Hammel was included in the deal as well for Addison Russell. He might get that sort of payment for him, but I would be very surprised. I agree...
  7. I just really don't want to spend prospects on...

    I just really don't want to spend prospects on Hamels. Hes making 22 per year for the next 4 years. He might get say 27 on the open market. Basically if Baez is putting up 1 win per year, it's an...
  8. Longoria would be amazing in Cubbie blue, but I...

    Longoria would be amazing in Cubbie blue, but I don't like the injuries the last two years. But if he were healthy I'd send Russell+ and lose no sleep for 6+ WAR a year. I'm just not willing to pay...
  9. Poll: I read this incorrectly as turtle masturbation. I...

    I read this incorrectly as turtle masturbation. I want to know where that thread is and if it finishes quicker than the Lester negotiations.
  10. It looks like the bottleneck that is Lester broke...

    It looks like the bottleneck that is Lester broke a bit early. Interesting to see how it plays out from here. Really hate missing out on Liriano as a fall back
  11. I get the frustration with the sox and Jays...

    I get the frustration with the sox and Jays having amazing off seasons to date, but there's still plenty of time. It would have been nice to get Heyward or have been in on Donaldson. Don't mind...

    I bet you really serve as a mentor to them. Not just an agent, but more like a father...or a sensai
  13. Steamer likes him for 3.1. Seems a bit optimistic...

    Steamer likes him for 3.1. Seems a bit optimistic with him barely being worth 2 the last 2 years combined, but as long as it doesn't cost us upgrades elsewhere go for it
  14. I bet I could spend 13m a year on a larger...

    I bet I could spend 13m a year on a larger upgrade. That's half a Lester or a Melky. Hopefully framing is worth 2 wins a year

    It appears we lost out on the turtle. The front office wouldn't shell out the cash
  16. Is his bat more likely to splinter than other...

    Is his bat more likely to splinter than other players?
  17. I've heard concerns the turtle may be on PEDs...

    I've heard concerns the turtle may be on PEDs because of how "shredded" he is...

    Hammel tops at a 3. I'd rather have went Liriano or Masterson, but I'm ok with it. I'm still rooting for Medlen and Beachy on a flyer.
  19. If he's half the price I'll be fine with it. If...

    If he's half the price I'll be fine with it. If he's 4/88 or plus I'm less so.

  21. I expect Shields to be a better pitcher at 35...

    I expect Shields to be a better pitcher at 35 then Lester, but the age gap means I am worrying about that at the end of a contract instead of the middle.

    Declining K rates are never a good...
  22. I don't like the age curve and declining K rates....

    I don't like the age curve and declining K rates. I also don't expect him to sign for 17 million AAV. 4/70 I'll tap dance
  23. Poll: If Lester is an every off season commodity, and...

    If Lester is an every off season commodity, and he's looking to cost upwards of 150 mil, what do you think it's going to cost for the FA class of next year with inflation?
  24. When I'm saying EJax, I'm not necessarily saying...

    When I'm saying EJax, I'm not necessarily saying he's the same player. I'm saying he's a fairly inferior second option that is likely to be paid more than he's worth as a back up plan.
  25. If Shields is 4/65 you sign him and don't care if...

    If Shields is 4/65 you sign him and don't care if he's E-Jax 2.0 in 2-3 years. However, if Lester is going to get 160+, then I see Shields being 4/88 or more. At that point, hope that Bosio can...
