Re: Immigration

I don't really understand this. In this situation, if he's married to an American citizen and has kids, he should be allowed to stay. Process-wise, if he were to leave, in six months he should be able to apply for a visa to return so it is not a permanent deportation. But there is a hardship waiver ...

Re: RBT Question Of The Day

They've made some puzzling moves. Starting with their decision to try to sneak Nicasio through waivers a second time after failing the first. Like they didn't expect he'd get grabbed again. Just because they didn't want to pay $600k for him to pitch for them through September. And they could have tr...

Re: 2017 Offseason News Thread

I don't have a lot of optimism they'll retain Ozuna long-term. Well, it'd require them being the best offer on the table, which clearly they don't have interest in ever being. Should we also point out that this glut of outfielders that they specifically talked about clearing still exists? We just t...

Re: RBT Question Of The Day

I dunno. He did what he did last year hitting in front of Nobody for quite awhile. Put him in front of Ozuna, with Pham's ability to steal, and he oughta see some pretty good pitches (provided he can see at all). I'll let Tommy answer that one. "I don't really understand that (that he'll see b...

Re: 2018 MLB News & Tidbits Thread

Cole has been barely above average the past two seasons and outside of one season (2015) has pretty much been an average pitcher.

Don't get me wrong, it's still a nice pickup by Houston, but I think Cole's creds as an ace are highly overrated.

Re: RBT Question Of The Day

Will Tommy Pham accomplish his goal of being the 1st 30-30 Cardinal? He was 27 HR, 31 SB if you add in his time at Memphis. Based on his MLB stats, he would have needed roughly 700 PA to accomplish it. He'd have had to start about 153 games in the 2 spot to get there. So it's not impossible, but pr...

Re: Political Dugout

Before even considering raising taxes they need to cut the absolute waste spending. And then start cutting foreign aid. There is so much that can and should be cut before affecting a single American but they won't do it. Rand Paul went through a list of wasted money spent sometime around New Years ...

Re: 2017 Offseason News Thread

I've consistently thought they were still in the market for more upgrades even while saying they weren't. I'm beginning to doubt this now with Reed signing for that small of a contract. And if they don't do anything else I will be pretty upset. Mo said yesterday that they're proceeding with Gregers...

Re: Political Dugout

Democrats already are the party of high taxes. Now, most of them dance around it, especially Bernie, saying that they're going to raise the taxes on the 1% to pay for the services for the other 99%. Neverminding that that 1% has the means to hire accountants to find every possible loop hole and tax ...

Re: 2017 Offseason News Thread

Imagine if some young guy puts up Pujols in his prime numbers, the amount he'd get now if teams are paying somebody 11 million for ONE GOOD YEAR You'd get a contract like Mike Trout's $144M/6 contract. He got $1M as a second year player. Then started the big deal making $6M as a third year player. ...

Re: 2017 Be the GM Thread

Wainwright has said that when this current contract is up that his plan is to take it year-to-year with one year deals. I would not be surprised, good or bad year, if this was the end for him.

Re: RBT Question Of The Day

I think when you look at just what Verlander did you have to identify that he was a key part of that run. I think there's also the thing that acquiring a player like that ups the morale on the team which can help pull the team in the right direction. I also think teams see where the holes are and wh...
