    Javier Baez averaged a 96 wRC+ between 2015 and 2018. In 2018 he had a 131. Since then, he's once again averaged a 97 wRC+ (and yes, this number is effected by a really terrible 2020, but he had a...

    There was no 13/13 rule last year, and there is none this year. The Cubs (or any team) can structure their pitching and position players however they would like.

    With that said, it's probably...

    7 years for Baez is almost assuredly a bad contract.

    Wouldn't touch a Baez extension. He may not WANT to play for another team but his profile screams "don't extend me". He relies almost...

    Bryant is going to bet on himself. When he says he will talk extension, he's not taking a sweetheart deal. He has zero reason to take 6/$90m right now if he believes he will bounce back. If the...

    God I hope that is just Gammons being crazy. Yorke was such a weird and not good pick.

    Yeah, I think Leiter is safer, but if I'm sitting 1.1, give me the upside, myself. I think Rocker can still settle in as a MORP if you can't fix some of his command and consistency. But Rocker just...

    Even on the worst teams, Pujols isn't getting 700 this year. He hasn't hit 38 home runs since 2016. And they deadened the ball. With his retiring, it's done. He'd need 2 years of nearly full PAs...

    Put me on the Kumar Rocker train. I think there's just more upside there. I like Leiter a ton as a 2nd SP option, but Rocker's fastball/slider combination is disgusting and if you can work on the...

    It's not about "being happy with what's in front of him". It's "spending assets in the best way". Sure, Ekholm improves our defense. But for how much, and how long? Does Ekholm fix the entire...

    I assume the cost will be at least a 1st plus something interesting prospect wise. There will be more than enough teams interested in a legit top-4 dman like Ekholm who comes with control that will...

    The Flyers would be insanely silly to leave 22 year old Carter Hart dangling out there (with no real backup plan at 1G organizationally right now), to keep 30+ year old, on 1 year deal Ekholm.

    He already had his money. He got a $100m contract from St. Louis already, it isn't like he hadn't been paid. If he was really only doing PED's for a contract, that mission was accomplished nearly a...

    On the topic of Pujols, I think this article (click here for link) is something everyone should read on the topic. For a few reasons;
    1) The "Was Pujols really 32?" is pretty unfounded. There's...

    Pujols has probably the most stark decline of any HoF player. Dan Szymborski (inventor of ZiPS) did a great breakdown of it in the spring. Basically, his decline was basically unprecedented for...

    Not worried at all losing Jefress. He looks like a timebomb.

    Defense was bad too. But I think it's a team effort. The forwards aren't playing good 2 way right now. Which last night shouldn't shock, you have 4 or 5 guys who have no business in an NHL lineup...

    Yeah I think he's really sleeping on him. I think many are. He's probably my favorite arm in the system, more so than even Marquez.

    Tatis's contract really doesn't have that much risk involved, which sounds odd since it's $340m, but it doesn't. Team pay anywhere between $8m in down years and over $9m per win on the free market. ...
