    If I had a job in the sports, I would keep those kind of thoughts to myself.
  2. Sticky: I agree with this, but we're talking about a...

    I agree with this, but we're talking about a player that gets every day action right now. I just find it hard to believe that they are going to be so improved that they are going to find enough new...
  3. Sticky: It still has some value. They don't always have...

    It still has some value. They don't always have to hit for the pitcher. Like I said, if a HR is needed, he can pinch hit for a position player. But yes, the value is very low. That said, I rather...
  4. Sticky: I actually like Wisdom as a pinch hitter off the...

    I actually like Wisdom as a pinch hitter off the bench if the long ball is needed. Maybe a spot start here and there. But if he's getting 400+ PA's next season, it means one of two things. The...
  5. Sticky: There's more than enough circumstantial evidence...

    There's more than enough circumstantial evidence to draw the conclusion that he's a juicer. This isn't a court hearing. To draw this conclusion based on many things is pretty easy to do in his...
  6. Sticky: Without question, again. He came in to the...

    Without question, again. He came in to the league in the wheelhouse of steroids. He played for the manager that was running the show when steroids started to really make it's way in to the game in...

    I don't think there's any doubt that he's juicing again.
  8. Sticky: I read something a few days ago and I posted it...

    I read something a few days ago and I posted it earlier this week. It's the actual number of what a player is worth. It's obviously not what they pay for the player. Nobody is getting Judge for...

    I agree with your positional versatility view. I think those type of players are great to have, and are better served on the bench. They can be used at multiple positions. But I'm still a fan of...

    He throws it more than any of his pitches, at 31.5%

    I was just replying to a 50 WAR estimate.

    If he did end up with 35, anything over 8/210 would be an over pay.

    Add a TOTR guy to those four, and that leaves one spot left. Maybe it's Kyle, Thompson, Killian, Wicks, Brown, a trade, or even another FA.

    Nobody knows Kyle better than the Cubs. He will have...

    It would be well spent money if we get 50 WAR out of him. But I think it will be closer to 35 WAR over that 8 years span.

    Sticky: You are not wrong, and I didn't mean to imply...

    You are not wrong, and I didn't mean to imply that every bench player is a former player that's getting starts this season. However, a bench of Morel, Wisdom, and maybe Bote or McKinstry might be a...

    See, I'm thinking that the bench next year, should be filled with guys that are getting starts this year. These starting players need to be replaced and sent to the bench. That's how the team...
  17. Sticky: This is a perfect explanation.

    This is a perfect explanation.
  18. Sticky: 5 million is low for the actual cost of a FA, but...

    5 million is low for the actual cost of a FA, but it's very close to the actual outcome of a player. Which of course is only the average outcome, which includes non FA's.

    These are for FA's only...

    Does anybody know if the Cubs are working on something specific with Killian? He's never had any issues with walks until now
  21. Sticky: I'm not saying that they should DFA him now. I...

    I'm not saying that they should DFA him now. I am however saying that if they are having a roster crunch, they have to consider it. Let's say that they want to get the 40 man roster down to 27. ...

    You are 100% right! I can not care less what a guy did 3 years ago, 4 years ago, 5 years ago. The only thing that matters to me is what have you done lately. He has done nothing lately. And that's...
  23. Sticky: I had mentioned last week that he should be a DFA...

    I had mentioned last week that he should be a DFA option. He's been bad for 2 years now. Even healthy he was bad. I don't know if he's a pen option, but he's certainly not good enough to be in the...

    That's an interesting thought. He's got a ton of pop, and is extremely fast. MLB pitching seems a bit tough right now, but maybe the Cubs can fix him a bit. He has one option left.
