  1. Dusty Baker 2017 off season thread

    I think the Cubs won in spite of Maddon last year as he had a brutal postseason in terms of decision making... not because of him. Big distinction.
  2. He's going to end up getting hurt.
  3. Lonzo Ball 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    He didn't get back on defense on one Clippers fast break (5 on 3, would've been a 5 on 4 if he got back) because he was busy helping Brandon Ingram up instead of hustling back. He's not the sharpest thinker out on the court at this point, that's for sure.
  4. Tyler Ulis 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Wait and see for me. Definitely a guy to keep an eye on, though. i think Watson really believes in him, but as long as Bledsoe is healthy his upside will be capped.
  5. 10/11 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Someone changed Corey Kluber's Wikipedia page, nicknamed him "Son of Didi." What a series. Yankees did the seemingly impossible. I'm on cloud nine right now.
  6. Am I better off starting Brissett or Siemian this week?
  7. 10/6 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Man... Kershaw just can't do it in October. Big black mark on his legacy, despite what the happy-clappers will say.
  8. 10/5 - GAME DAY THREAD

    A lot of the time the complaints were warranted. Guess you saw it a different way, that's fine
  9. 10/5 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Not the reason the Yankees lost, but that was some terrible home plate umpiring in the Yankees/Indians game tonight. Bauer was getting 3-4 inches off the plate with his curveball all night. Hopefully the rest of the series and PS won't be marred by umpiring incompetence.

    Agreed, I don't see Bryant falling to the 2nd round. Even in this down year (for him) he OPSed .942 so his plate approach is still elite and he suffered from some bad RBI luck. Weird how so many people are willing to drop Bryant to the 2nd but keep Betts, who barely managed to OPS above .800 on the season (and toiled in the .770s for most of the year). If it comes down to Bryant vs. Betts for me it's not even close who I'm going with.

    Kris Bryant had a 30.6% K rate his rookie season.
  12. Mookie Betts 2017 Outlook

    By what measure? Some of those guys you mentioned OPSed .150 points higher than Betts. He was a significantly worse hitter than Bryant/Rizzo this year. And the other guys you mentioned he only was better than due to injuries. Bottomline this is a guy who could barely OPS .800 in a year in which the ball is juiced. That's startling for a guy who was seemingly the unquestioned #2 overall pick before the season.

    That's fine, doesn't make you right, though.
  14. 2018 First Rounders Discussion

    Betts isn't going at #6. He could barely muster an .800 OPS in a year with a juiced ball. Your refusal to admit he's been a massive disappointment this year is just comical at this point.
  15. Aaron Judge 2017 Outlook

    He should be a first rounder in all leagues next year.
