    2020 ALCS: Good vs Evil

    Ballsy pitch in that situation 3-2 loaded with tieing run on 3rd.

    2020 NLCS: Braves vs. Dodgers

    Thats what I reckon should have been done too. Treat it as a rest day and batting practice after that first inning.

    Pedro's Immaculate Inning

    Old friend Craig Kimbrel brought in for some confidence work down 12-zip. Immediately gives up a triple. Then a walk. then a single. Thats 22 earned runs in 23 innings as a Cub total. Halfway through the 3/43mill contract.

    Good point, hadn't thought of that.

    July/August game thread

    It is an interesting dynamic with the shoe potentially being on the other foot this season as far as potential service time manipulation, albeit for a very small specific set of players. Of course, teams are still doing their side of it also this year (e.g. Nate Pearson for the Jays).

    July/August game thread

    I did see an article in the NYPost about those playing time targets. Paxton from memory doesn't have many days to hit FA either. I've been doing a little digging on this and couldn't find anything definitive on this. Can players opt out at any time through the season? Also can they opt back in?

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    This is something to worry about for next season not this one. Fair point by Max. 50% pay for 50% season should be the starting point. Owners lose X% from no fans in the stands. Depending on the value of X maybe players should wear some of that loss, but also have to factor in the fact that...

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    What alternative is there? Can't roll back trades. Can't suspend service time and have Mookie et al. still another year form free agency.

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    I've no doubt I'm not the first to think of it but has there been any discussion on any of the fantasy platforms or MLB game producers on running a simulated season? Would be at least something for fantasy baseball starved fans to track. Games could he live streamed and stats flow straight into...

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    This is the most surprising part for me too. Especially given the Suzuki quote "We could hear it from their dugout. We heard their whistling. What are you going to do?" Suzuki told The Washington Post's Thomas Boswell. Putting one between the shoulder blades when they think an offspeed is...

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    This theory works great assuming Mookie Betts will never age and you can keep him forever. You need draft picks to get the Mookies. Just be glad the redsox weren't perpetually above the cap with pick penalties in place back in 2008/9/10 otherwise Mookie likely never pulls on a redsox jersey.

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    Its the vacant farm system that makes the pick penalties so difficult to swallow. Its not just the money. Thats partly picks that havent turned out and partly prospects traded for valuable pieces.

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    My preference also. Betts is the salary dump. Get the best you can for him, dont use him as a tool to dump more salary. Even if it means going cheap everywhere else for role players etc. The risk with this one is price isnt healthy at the deadline and youre screwed there. But i think youre...

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    Bleh sorry, missed that my point already completely made and discussed. Thought i had kept up with all the mookie discussion threads but clearly not.

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    On this theme I did a quick comp between mookie and a frequently used comparable player for him , McCutchen . Similar size, quick hands, good speed etc. First 5 full seasons for both were age 23-27. Min games played for cutch was 146. For mookie 136 (in 2018) and rest 145+. WAR and...
