    Rocker would be my 100% 1.1 guy. He's just filthy.

    Vandy just keeps churning out pitchers!

    Although there's no way to prove it, in my opinion, it's a slam dunk that he did. Steroids followed LaRussa from Oak to Stl. I read that it was speculated that 2000 players were using during the...

    Couple that with his real age being a question mark when he signed, it's a very bad deal.

    Maybe on the open market he would exceed that. But as far as an extension goes, adding 3/60 to this years 16.5 sounds about right to me. Even in today's free agency market, teams are just not...

    Rizzo is aging, and his back isn't getting any better. Myself? If I was to throw him an extension, it would look something like 3/60

    And of course, yes to the younger FA's.

    Fans can't be that naive, can they? He or any other owner is never going to choose winning over profits. He bought the team to make money. Winning is a bonus.

    Like I said last month. I think the Cubs had zero chance of winning this. He could have asked for another half million and still won.

    This is what I think. If teams have plans on giving a guy an extension early on, and know that it's likely to happen, then there's no reason to keep him down. If they don't think they are going to...

    He'll turn 24 this summer. He was outstanding in college, and was the 3rd overall pick. He had no line, no RB, no WR, no TE, and a terrible coaching staff. He was set up to fail, and he did. He...

    I don't think a first rounder was ever on the table. I mean, they received a 3rd rounder and a conditional 2nd rounder. We could have give up the same exact package and had him. Apparently the...

    You're correct about the 170 number. That's their AAV plus benes and so on.

    Looking at Cot's, they have the Cubs 2021 26 man roster payroll right now at 146.7 mil, which includes (6) 0-3 guys...

    Excellent post. But at the end of the day, winning is never going to matter over profits.

    The owners don't care "what's good for the sport." They care about what's good for their profits. They...

    If there's no floor, there should be no cap. Yes, a cap without a floor ONLY benefits the owners. Who does a floor benefit?

    I think the NFL's floor is 92% of the cap. It might be even higher. But they have a whole different animal they're dealing with as far as profit sharing.

    That's why they need a floor. Teams that spend 50 million are a huge part of the problem. Not having a minimum spending amount is more of a problem than having a ceiling. But that's just me.

    I've been saying this for years. There can't be any form of a cap, without some form of a floor.
