    2019 - 2020 Off Season Thread

    So the Brewers, Cardinals, Reds and Pirates all get Competitive Balance picks in the 2020 MLB Draft.

    For everyone arguing over the value of players and adding this guy or that guy gets us to so many wins...do those numbers change now that there are 30 more players rostered this upcoming season than in the past? I assume that player values will diminish do to the 26th roster position, even if only a little bit. Has that been adjusted already?

    It's all based on playing time. So players who start probably won't be largely effected. It'll be negligible. Reserves might see a little less value but then you'll just have another player earning it. It'll all balance out as the same amount of PAs will be going around. It's all just putting the right guys in the right spots most of the time.

    It was met with negative response, as it should be. It’s a horrible trade

    It’s all good no worries. Better that you posted it now in case some people (like yourself) missed it earlier and we can get more reactions to that pukeworthy proposal

    I don't know which was worse: Cubs trading Contreras and Bryant for two relievers and 3 maybe players for the future (though Whitley is intriguing) or the Cardinals getting Mookie Betts for scrap heap?
    Screw sabermetics.

    At least the Cubs arent sending Bryant to Pittsburg where he crushes it more than he does in Cincinnati. So that’s a definite plus.

    This is a great pickup for the Crew. I'd say that he's a top 5 offensive catcher in the game.

    FG Off: 5th
    wRC+: 4th
    wOBA: 5th
    OBP: 4th
    OPS: 5th

    I wonder what they are giving up for him
