    I don't really understand the send Baez back to AAA strategy. There is nothing left for him to learn there (which is different than saying there is nothing left for him to learn). Ongoing success for...

    At least his last job wasn't managing some **** bush league team up in canada where the rules are different.

    Ben Revere is no Juan Pierre. Many seasons of Juan Pierre were productive. Revere will never be. Alcantara will produce pretty much what Revere does - without improving too much for cheaper.

    If you want to spend approximately Hamels level money on Hamels level quality, you do it on the free market. You don't give up prospects for that.

    You also don't trade Javy for Hamels. What the hell is the point of that? Think younger. And cheaper and under control for longer. But just as good.
  6. I think I've already covered this.

    I think I've already covered this.
  7. I never said I wanted to maximize our chances at...

    I never said I wanted to maximize our chances at the playoffs in 2015. In fact, I don't think anyone in the front office is actually trying to maximize our chances at making the playoffs this year....

    I'm sure we could find a serviceable 2B. At some point in the season, you probably bring Russell up, let him take his dings and slide Castro over.

    What if Javy busts? Based on track records, who has the bigger shot at going bust?
  10. Probably because generally speaking, people are...

    Probably because generally speaking, people are more confident in Bryant's ability to produce. And because given out org dept charts, ss (and potentially 2b) is a luxury.
  11. Who cares? You're still going to pay thru the...

    Who cares? You're still going to pay thru the nose for them. Don't forget. You have more supply and more demand. By this time next year, Lester is gonna seem like a steal.
  12. What makes you think spending money on frontline...

    What makes you think spending money on frontline pitching is better than spending prospects? If ever there was a market where you are paying for past performance it is in the free agency pitching...
  13. Pretty much. Yes.

    Pretty much. Yes.
  14. While I agree with the general sentiment, I...

    While I agree with the general sentiment, I really hate how much the "we are an 84 win team now" phrase is thrown around. I'd say the probability that we finish five above is about as high as it is...

    you should have kept the rest of your post up there. I was gonna reply to it as soon as I had a second. I have been thinking about the steroid in baseball issue a lot. It's really hard to develop an...

    Thanks dude. those are truly kind words. I miss having the time to post around here. I still remember back in the day trying to argue that stolen bases and defense mattered. Unfortunately it was in...

    Scary thing is, even though a lot has changed, some things haven't. As we've been doing research for the film, we've talked to a number of current NBA players. Earl Lloyd's story about how basketball...

    You are a friend, gentleman and a scholar. I was telling my directors about how much I used to post on here in the old days (I think there was an off-season or two where I was averaging about 25...

    Documentary I'm making

    So I posted this on the NBA board as well. But given the Cubs forum is like my PSD home, I thought I would post it here as well. Outside of these boards, believe it or not, I am a TV and film...
  23. My Doc about the 1st African American to play in the NBA

    So I am a long time poster on the Cubs forum and a few others. I have lost track of how many valuable hours I have spent posting on here. Outside of these boards, believe it or not, I am a TV and...

    I'm not sure if this is good or bad.
