I'd love for once to hear an athlete say that kind of response.
Bummer. RIP Mr. Cub
I'm sure he can still strike you out with ease. I'm sure (even in the minor leagues) that some people just enjoy playing the game. Hell, he even gets paid a little bit to do it.
Can't blame the dude for simply wanting to play baseball games.
Well your 25 doesn't really matter as much as the 25 that Theo picks. For that reason, you might as well just factor him into the 25 man discussion instead of playing pretend GM in your head.
Yeah but is he AARON RODGERS with a different organization and a different offensive philosophy?
I think the fact that The Bears can never seem to draft or develop a legitimate QB is pretty much...
For sure, but they set a limit, stuck to it and they allowed him to go somewhere else while he still was a very productive player. The guy was a legend in St. Louis. Not like they could just not go...
The organization was "lucky" enough to let that 80+ win player sign somewhere else at the perfect time too.
I'll agree though that there is some luck at play with some of these organizations. ...
Prime Belichick is this postseason.
I'll take Belichick because I'm THAT confident that it's his system that will win regardless.
In fairness, this particular board for some reason really likes to keep a general scope for it's thread topics. I've tried starting an "around the MLB" thread in the past but it's gotten shot down...
But Luck is making less money than Belichick :P
Brady was a 6th round draft pick before Belichick selected him in the draft. My point still stands.
If it's not coming from the top, where is it coming from?
Crappy organizations don't consistently win. See Bears.
The fact that we can't accurately assess the amount of actual wins a Manager brings (or doesn't bring) to a team is why we can't compare them to players.
Ask yourself this, if The Patriots had to...
So MLB teams have figured out the $/Wins for managers but it hasn't been leaked to the public yet?
Bill Belichick is worth way more than Tom Brady, how come he isn't making Tom Brady's salary?
What's The Cardinals Front Office worth in terms of their team's wins?
There is no argument on whether managers matter or not, they do matter. If not for the simple reason that the goal is to...
Honestly, it's a pretty silly idea to directly compare players and managers based on their salaries. The discussion needs to be dropped ASAP.
The average NFL Head Coaching salary is $4.6 mil. Anyone wanna argue how unimportant coaching is to football?
$5 mil is just kinda what coaches in professional sports make these days. What...
Tampering? Against which team that currently doesn't have him under contract? They're allowed to negotiate a contract with him right now. Just can't sign him to the big money one we all expect him to...
He will wait if they have the best offer for him
Because pretend GMs can say whatever they want when hiding behind a keyboard. They don't have the responsibility of winning a WS attached to their name.
Totes news worthy
There's no way Baez is gonna be the centerpiece to that deal. If people on PSD think he sucks, there's no way The Cubs are gonna fool another professional baseball operation into thinking he's good.
