How in the hell didn’t the “toughest president ever” on Russia bring him home in 2018?

This we can agree on in regard to Kristen. She moved to be an independent because the Democratic Party was going to primary her.


Again, the vanity play is all on her.

ATTENTION RELIGIOUS SHARPIE!!!



Hey, let’s play a game.

If President Biden was responsible for gas at $5 a gallon, why is he not responsible for $2.69/GL today?

C'mon, Ron.  Get serious.  This is some dopey stuff coming from all sides.

Well, that is what makes it so entertaining. 😉

Just saw that Munetaka Murakami will be posted when his deal ends in 2025…

He's a star talent for sure.

At some point, you have to let your talented youngsters play and grow.

Morel will play plenty as a super-utility guy, which is where his performance last season dictates he should be.  He was bad defensively everywhere he played and bad offensively for half the season, and he was never an elite prospect.  I don't think you commit a critical position to him as an everyday player when there are better options available, and I don't think that's inconsistent with committing to young talent.  When PCA - who is an elite prospect and plays outstanding defense - comes up, you can commit to letting him play through his struggles.  Apples and oranges.

Swanson had a .702 OPS in the second half. 


Hoyer at the start of the off season talked about good teams blowing out other teams.  If you bring in Swanson you are looking at a team that is going to try and win 1 run low score games. The error bar on that type of team is huge. The easy answer is we’ll just get the offense at 1B/3B/DH.  Look at Fangraphs and see how many guys had an OPS above .800 and who is available in the next few years.  It isn’t a long list.

Correra or bust.  You then have to continue to add studs the next couple years in free agency or the Cubs are going to have to be really amazing at drafting in the middle/late first round to get those studs.



So a 60 points higher OPS while playing statistically the best defense in the NL at SS is equivalent to a .645 OPS playing among the worst at 2B.  Got it.

I just want to say this sort of spirited debate that makes this board so worthwhile. Thanks guys.

This is doable, but it's much harder if you've spent $25 on a less-than-offensively-elite shortstop.
