    If the projection system has Bryant as a September callup, Edwin Jackson getting 30+ starts, Hendricks barely playing, etc, etc, then yeah, you might as well ignore that projection system.

    I think he was using "dynasty" in jest, but it's a valid point. A young player could be more interested in joining the young core of an up-and-coming team than in joining a decrepit old roster like...

    I don't think that's true. A farm system as lauded as the one they have is a selling point with some tangible value. Players aren't oblivious to it.

    The July 2 market is the only one affected by the restrictions we're talking about.

    It's an interesting concept, but does it reek to anyone else like this was all about placating Boras's ego? As in, he promised his client $200 million, couldn't find any suckers, and then...

    Clutch is ok when you use it to refer to a guy who doesn't choke in big moments. Where it gets silly is when you see some stat rolled out like "so-and-so is hitting .500 with a man on third and two...

    You guys know that "vs." is an abbreviation of "versus," right?

    He said they're a true baseball team compared to teams that emphasize analytics. He explicitly--without mincing a single word--drew...

    Managers also possess less universal skillsets than do players. A guy who can hit a baseball is useful to every team in the league. A guy who excels at handling young talent and helping prospects...

    I mean, we DID just jettison a perfectly capable manager to poach the one from arguably the smartest team in baseball over the past decade.

    As much as the metrics hate him, haven't scouts always liked him on defense?

    The Cubs badly needed OBP ahead of their collection of sluggers. They didn't have anyone who profiled as a leadoff type. I think both teams did well to address their particular needs at the expense...

    I'm pretty sure it's still considered $30m a year for luxury tax purposes. You can't get around that by deferring payment.

    Look at it this way. It's like he got Jon Lester's deal plus an additional year at $55 million.

    A 29-year-old free agent isn't going to accept a QO.

    The inflammatory thing here is his implication that teams emphasizing analytics aren't real baseball teams.

    I'm not sure how everyone missed that point.

    Almora's still the better true CF prospect. McKinney's bat has been encouraging, but I don't see many giving him a chance to stick in CF.

    That makes it a nine-step process to find a sticky thread from the time you open the app to when you actually click on the thread. That's the polar opposite of efficient app design.

    Totally off topic, but is Tapatalk on a mission to make every update progressively less user friendly than the last? I can't even find the sticky topics anymore.
  21. I still can't say I understand the love for him....

    I still can't say I understand the love for him. Forget about Abreu or Puig or any of those guys. Even Alexei Ramirez was a significantly better hitter than him in Cuba. If he were an American player...

    Yeah, I don't understand why they don't just go grab a guy with the defensive chops to be an everyday CF and a bat that plays well as a starting LF. Just go to the "CF Defense With LF Bat" store and...

    She was getting breakfast at 11:00 after a night out partying, so they were all looking kinda rough.

    I kinda hope the Yankees sign him. Get themselves started on their next crop of expensive, aging players for their next string of $200 million, 80-win teams.
