    Stanton will opt out when Trout is a FA. Any team trading for him better not give much back in return.

    You gotta think of the psychology of it. After playing with the loser Marlins in front of an empty and hideous stadium, the next team he plays for that's competent is going to feel like the best situation on earth.

    I really don't want Cobb.

    I hope that is just to replace Lackey... Cobb is not a front line pitcher.

    If Ohtani overthinks big games like he does this decision, he's going to be a terrible big game pitcher.

    I actually think Cobb would be a great 4th starter. His stuff is pretty decent and hed be making the move from facing the al east to the nl central.

    I’m sure their pitch to Otani will at least have a shot, but Cobb needs to be their 5th starter next year so that Quintana is not being relied upon as a front line starter because he’s not one.

    Stanton to the Giants will be a bad deal for the Giants. They aren't good enough, he won't stay healthy, they'll have to pay $250,000,000 and give up Panik, and by the time they're good again (if even) then he'll be 32 and on a Pujols like trajectory but with no DH to hide him defensively.

    Funny note now, the Padres' #1 prospect is a guy the White Sox traded for James Shields lol. Just basically a low level prospect the White Sox couldn't develop at all and threw in just for a body on the mound.

    Obtain not going to Yankees, down to Giants and Dodgers, most likely SF, lacks the pelotas to play on the big stage, or more likely Scranton- Wilkes Barre !

    I think he needs half a year in AAA ball before easing into the small market MLB arena, and likely won't bat much.

    It is tough to cater to these Jap pitchers that can only pitch once a week, screws up your rotation.

    It will be interesting to see what he has, price was right on this PROSPECT, for sure !

    Fucking phone won't let me spell his name correctly !

    I can’t believe Otani is a frontline starter, maybe he is, but there are a lot of unknowns.

    yankees are out of the running. I still think he ends up in Seattle or SF.

    If you read through the lines of what he's saying, it sounds like he wants to be the center of attention while also at the same time having no big expectations on him

    Sounds like a disaster. Also sounds like he goes to the Mariners since they'll worship him and they are used to losing so much they won't even turn on him unless he's god awful

    If hes smart, he’s choosing SF or Seattle. Far more enforcement chances out west, and a less forgiving media spotlight if things don’t work out.

    But Stanton is one of the few hitters who wouldn't be intimidated by the park. That park is a clear detriment to obtaining free agent hitters.

    This one went under the radar: Aledmys Diaz from the Cardinals to Toronto for the Jays' 2016 second rounder. Diaz was real good in 2016: .300/.510/.876 but slumped considerably last year. The league adjusted to him, and he didn't adjust back. The fact Paul Dejong has proven to be a big league hitter hasn't hurt.

    You think Im being effusive? You havent experienced anything. This wasnt a kidding term you used or something someone says to incite a small debate like the cubs are over rated you ignorant little virgin. Who calls someone that and then uses hamlet scene 3 quotes?! Arent you a blinded trumptard? He would cut shakespear and claim LIBERAL arts is a attack on america.

    Now run along and try to convince someone else you are smart, a college pitcher, don't know which truck stop bathrooms are best, that you've felt a womans breast in the last decade counselor.
    Youre the definition of fake news.

    Your mental break leads me to believe there would probably be a VERY healthy correlation between mental illness and people who obsessively pop drugs to keep them awake for extended periods of time for years upon years. Truck drivers, poker players, etc... rather than 1 in 20 being bat shit crazy, it's more like 1 in 3.

    I pop pills, you like women, have friends, are a practicing attorney, ex college pitcher, have left the house in the last month.. its all the story you decide to tell.
    Look everyone Javy questioning others mental stability hahahaha.

    This was a good and productive and informative thread until you entered it. Facts are facts.

    Now you have a good night. Pop some ambien if you can’t sleep. Then when you’re groggy pop something else. Then when poker gets stale pop something else.

    I think Lorenzo Cain is difference maker. The cards are front runners which doesn't make a lot of sense to me as they have no pitching and OH showed he isnt a closer.
    Everyone in detroit Fulmer, kinsler and Norris appear to be on the block. Im sure miggy is as well but no one wants that contract.
    Abreau to boston makes a ton of sense. Im sure the red sox being the team I love won't be willing to give up much and would rather overspend in free agency.

    I like cincy a little as they are deep with young starters and Iglesias healthy gives them a decent closer. Why they dont want a cheap Cozart is odd to me.

    Logan morrison is a better overall bat than Bruce itll be interesting to see where they go.
    Whoever gets cargo is getting damaged goods the guy has had too many injuries and went from 5 tools to 2 rapidly.
    Darvish and Arrieta are seeking big/long contracts. Interesting to see what that means for Lynn and Sabathia as well.

    Nunez and Moustakis could be big time difference makers for teams almost there in need of a 3rd baseman.
    The poor royals and tigers. I have no clue how they plan on selling tickets.

    Stanton going to SF will make baseball a little more boring imo. His numbers will decline and on days Posey sits why pitch to him. Also SF has no starters outside of Bumgarner and possibly Cueto returns to form then who? Stanton playing for a .500 team launching what 35 playing at ATT?

    I like the angels aquisition of Upton expect Trout to get less intentional walks. They also have some quality starters that are young.
    Darvish to anaheim makes some sense.

    Jd Martinez doesnt do it for me personally. One name admist all these guys that Im surprised I haven't seen anything on is why would the dodgers keep Adrian Gonzales? You can't sit or platoon Bellinger. Id like to see him in Colorado. He would make a lot of sense but its the rockies expect a cheap as possible guy. Mark reynolds etc.
    Thats all i have top of my head. Feel free to continue to discuss. Ill troll Javy in his other non sports threads. Sorry for any temporary derailment.

    Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood to a 3 year deal worth 38 million.

    Great risk/reward here.

    2016/2017 combined he was 13-8 with a 2.57 ERA away from Coors with 157.1 IP with just 108 hits allowed for a .195 BAA.

    He's a solid pitcher no doubt. Also a pretty small contract for his ability. Are you only going to report cubs stuff? I know you're the ultimate fanboy but since you post 10 hours a day maybe report all signings? You are the face of eog as sad as it is.

    I discuss anything relevant to MLB IMO.

    There hasn't been much movement because everyone is waiting for Stanton and Ohtani to decide. Mike Minor got a nice deal from the Rangers, Cubs were sniffing around him but that was too expensive for him I think.

    Cubs were smart to swoop in while everyone was waiting on Ohtani and grab Chatwood. I feel like he could have gotten more from a desperate team that loses out on Ohtani (Seattle/LAA)
