    Two years ago, on this site, I said that I thought they were cheating.

    My guess was PED's or some substance the pitchers were using to increase spin rate. Just because they were stealing signs,...

    That would make sense right now, if he wants to forgo free agency and stay with the Cubs

    Conversely, it could get him traded sooner also. He may insist that he's not signing here because he's...

    Why do you say that? Do you think that he wants to raise his family in Chicago? The Chicago area is quite desirable, but to each his own. There's not a lot of good to say about Illinois.

    Do you know why he's not protected anymore, without being put on the 40 man roster?

    The rule says that he is still protected.

    Maybe Miller? Short?

    It's nice to see a 20 year old in the system that's good enough to be forced on to the 40 man roster.

    To be honest, I thought that Amaya had one more year before he...

    Actually, I read it awhile back. GM's are getting younger, and front office guys are moving around a lot. The formulas are very similar with obvious adjustments that each team may make.

    I thought you understood what I was saying about it being based on sabermetrics now. Contracts are nothing compared to what kind of evaluation they were using before. This algorithm is very new.

    Yes. His NPB salary is irrelevant. But that doesn't mean it's not worth mentioning.
