    With everything going on I'm not surprised. If you're both, with all of the uncertainty of the season and when it may or may not happen, there's no immediacy again. I doubt anything gets done in...

    They can't. 15 teams in each league would leave two not playing every weekend. Interleague has to happen.

    They'll probably just skip the games they missed if they play then. But I'll be...

    What about the draft? College kids. High school kids. They won't have seasons in many cases. You're going to be shooting in the dark even more. Are kids going to sign if they think they would...

    No one is arguing how obvious it is that teams may make decisions like that. But if the best you have is a call to authority argument, you hardly have an argument. Teams have been behind the times...

    I know you said it was your last post, but much like Wolf, you're categorizing the argument incorrectly. And I'm going to try to set that correct.

    But we were talking about him on the Rockies in 2016. Would you rather sign someone who had a 3.5 ERA but a 4.5 xFIP? Or a 4.5 ERA who had a 3.5 xFIP?

    Because I know who I'd rather have going...

    Okay, one, I hate this idea that FIP and xFIP aren't "results". They're 100% "results". His xFIP is the "result" of how he pitched. Calling them any other than "results" under values them, which...

    Well, let's backtrack. We should know better than in 2020 to rely on ERA and WHIP. His road FIP/xFIP in 2016 was 3.70/4.40 which shows competent back end starter. In 2017 his road FIP/xFIP was...

    It wasn't about him. It's the idea that anything is truly equal between players. Very rarely is it actually equal. I used Miller to highlight that.

    The Cubs bullpen is a rare exception to...

    I find it hard to believe all things are ever that equal. Ian Miller's been an awful minor leaguer for years. Not sure how anyone equals that.

    Or there's just no reason to cut him now because someone will maybe trade for him. I mean, Rivas is still in camp. He's had 40 PA's above A+ ball. I don't think that means anything, either.

    If there's one guy without options we can dump, it should be Sadler. He's no good. Take the 2019 ERA out, he was a .1 fWAR RP in 40 some innings, had poor FIP/xFIP in comparison to the good ERA,...
