    Sticky: Discussion: Or more particularly, who is going to pay for the...

    Or more particularly, who is going to pay for the financial losses of the empty stadiums? Maybe the owners will show their charity and take a hit on the "risky" investment that is an MLB team......
  2. Sticky: Discussion: I can't think of any time someone would deserve a...

    I can't think of any time someone would deserve a death threat. But to play victim is just a desperate PR stunt. So again, cry me a river Reddick.
  3. Sticky: Discussion: And I'm sure Yu Darvish and Aroldis Chapman had...

    And I'm sure Yu Darvish and Aroldis Chapman had similar comments made to them after their respective implosions in the World Series/ALCS. The internet is mean sometimes, but at least here the blame...
  4. Sticky: Discussion: 1) It's okay to criticize Maddon - and you're...

    1) It's okay to criticize Maddon - and you're right, the bad Chapman move was bringing him in game 6, not leaving him in game 7 for too long.
    2) It's also okay to praise Maddon. He's made a lot of...
  5. Sticky: Discussion: I think it shows he is less likely to sign an...

    I think it shows he is less likely to sign an extension because they need him to hit free agency and set the market. Whatever it takes to move the players' position forward. Not that I thought an...
  6. Sticky: Discussion: The KB interview was great. He's an amazing face...

    The KB interview was great. He's an amazing face of the players and comes across as a true professional. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the union and Boras need him to push for more and...
  7. Sticky: Discussion: It's sort of a "Stanton-lite" sort of trade. I...

    It's sort of a "Stanton-lite" sort of trade. I don't think Arenado now is at the same caliber of Stanton then (Stanton was coming off a 7 war season) plus Stanton's contract was huge (13/325). I...
  8. Sticky: Discussion: I have no clue what the Rockies' motivations are...

    I have no clue what the Rockies' motivations are and welcome any insight into that. If I recall correctly their GM has been in Colorado for a very long time so he might have enough job security to...
  9. Sticky: Discussion: Good point, but he also wants out of Colorado and...

    Good point, but he also wants out of Colorado and it seems the Rockies are willing to pay part of his contract to make the return worthwhile. I honestly don't know who has more leverage here but I...
  10. Sticky: Discussion: That's insane. Even more insane that they kept...

    That's insane. Even more insane that they kept him in that spot. Some guys just don't like the leadoff spot - Schwarber is another great example. Rizzo doesn't mind it, albeit he's not a typical...
  11. Sticky: Discussion: But how would another team know that before he...

    But how would another team know that before he plays for them? For example, how would the Cubs know his numbers would decline so as to sign him for less? Many people (myself included) do not believe...
  12. Sticky: Discussion: Why would he get paid less if his next deal is...

    Why would he get paid less if his next deal is with a team other than Colorado? Or is that not what you're saying?
  13. Sticky: Discussion: From everything the Jon Heyman's of the world...

    From everything the Jon Heyman's of the world have been saying, it's the Rockies who would have to give Arenado something to give that up. The opt out is Colorado's mess to clean up if they want a...
  14. Sticky: Discussion: Is it baiting or insulting a person (rather than...

    Is it baiting or insulting a person (rather than supporting an idea) to point out that nobody on this forum wants to see this **** and if you want the last word (which you always do, that part isn't...
  15. Sticky: Discussion: I don't see what's wrong with this. He's saying...

    I don't see what's wrong with this. He's saying we made our point, so did CP, and we disagree but we're not going to change anyone's mind. Probably not a bad suggestion to be honest. It sure beats...
  16. Sticky: Discussion: Nobody said a subset of owners want a better deal...

    Nobody said a subset of owners want a better deal for the players or are colluding with them to achieve the same result. rcal and I said a subset of the owners have different financial motivations...
  17. Sticky: Discussion: It's baiting to call someone crazy. It's...

    It's baiting to call someone crazy. It's entertaining to say it in the sense of "I was THINKING you're crazy, but I didn't type it" (until now, of course). And I'm not offended by it and find it...
  18. Sticky: Discussion: Oh come on. It's a "conspiracy theory" because...

    Oh come on. It's a "conspiracy theory" because you don't agree with it? rcal and I both have seen what teams are doing and are interpreting their actions to infer their motivation. We agree that part...
  19. Sticky: Discussion: Perhaps, but the owners don't like giving away...

    Perhaps, but the owners don't like giving away money. Todd Ricketts tried to circumvent the Wilmette property tax system for what was likely less than $20,000 per year....
  20. Sticky: Discussion: Adding on to this, large market teams can get...

    Adding on to this, large market teams can get more revenue by spending more. Teams do better in ratings and attendance when they are winning. For example, both the Red Sox and Cubs had poor TV...
  21. Sticky: Discussion: The Orioles have a lower payroll than the...

    The Orioles have a lower payroll than the Pirates, half of which is tied up in Chris Davis. They have no plans to contend and put a crap product on the field while receiving what is likely their...
  22. Sticky: Discussion: Agree with all of this, plus I think there will...

    Agree with all of this, plus I think there will be a work stoppage in the next CBA negotiations. There are three sides (large market teams, small market teams, and players) who are not on good terms....
  23. Sticky: Discussion: The Pirates' payroll is $48 million and they...

    The Pirates' payroll is $48 million and they receive $49 million in revenue sharing. The Pirates are tanking and not extending anyone of value. That's quite a bit different than rebuilding, investing...
  24. Sticky: Discussion: I'll take the over on that estimate by quite a...

    I'll take the over on that estimate by quite a bit, assuming he hits free agency. Partially because I think the new CBA will be more friendly to players and large market teams, meaning free agent...
  25. Sticky: Discussion: Hmm... good point, now that I look back. No clue...

    Hmm... good point, now that I look back. No clue what would cause him to bite and avoid free agency. I think it will take more than 7 years and I doubt he will sign for less than Arenado. Maybe 29+M...
