Rumor from a few days ago was they wanted him to pitch from the pen.
j.sanchez minor league deal...incentives if he makes the major league team.
no idea if he's starting or pen...
I gotta keep reinventing my lingo whenever the mainstream co-ops my cabs.
Yeah, sorry. I just assume everyone knows my abbreves.

'momes' is AWESOME. thank you . . . can't wait to use it.
is that "for a moment?"
I thought I was being attacked there for a momes.
"According to Sports Hochi in Japan, the Rakuten Golden Eagles are prepared to offer Masahiro Tanaka an $8 million salary to stay with the team next season.
It would be the largest single-season salary ever for a Nippon Professional Baseball player, per Patrick Newman of NPB Tracker"
it's been kicked around by some that now that the posting fee has been lowered to a $20m limit, tanaka could be looking at a $100m contract...either way it seems like he'll more than lap $8m a year if posted, maybe even up to $15m a year right out of the gate.
did you even read what i wrote?
...or the bill james quote you listed before your "drops mic" punchline?
...or the part where i wrote about it being "an off-the-cuff chest-bumping comment anyway" after the only point you saw relevant out of everything else i wrote?
seriously, i have no idea how you only read that one single thing out of everything else around it.
when someone says "sabermetrics obviously works because of victories in a short series"...well,
Well no one was fucking saying that...the James quote was a fun exclamation point
that's some shifty advice.
"The Brewers are showing interest in Michael Young for their first base opening, sources tell FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal."
cubs not finishing last place in the division keeps getting a little more likely.
the jump to conclusions game ignores that i wasn't making a comment on the uselessness of sabermetics.
there's more than 1 element in play...such as an extremely big payroll...
it's not an either/or game. contrary to the beliefs of some, it co-exists. it even exists in the middle of the road with teams like STL.
imagine TB + OAK with $125-$175m of payroll every year and how that might impact BOS's (or anyone's) WS victories...or BOS's own chances if they had 1/2 - 2/3rd the payroll in the years they won...or whatever.
I love this game...
Cubs 2009 payroll - $135M (3rd)
Cubs 2010 payroll - $146M (3rd)
Cubs 2011 payroll - $125M (6th)
Red Sox 2012 payroll - $173M (3rd)
Angels 2012 payroll - $154M (4th)
Phillies 2013 payroll - $165M (3rd)
but I do look forward to your Hall of Fame worthy analysis on the uselessness of sabermetrics in today's baseball organizations
