TCR Chat


[...] Feel free to discuss the game on this thread and if you want to chat, you guys can go here. It’s NOT permanent, just something we were testing out and I think I like Parachat more, but it’ll be good for everyone’s fix today. [...]

[...] Chat [...]

[...] Chat [...]

[...] Chat The first game of the year on WGN and the rivalry continues. Rich Hill is set to start for the Cubs, Jon Garland for the White Sox. Be sure to check out my live blog of the MVN fantasy draft during the game. [...]

[...] The other option is called Geesee which some have been using during the preseason. The web administrator sort of just put it up there for us a long time ago, but I’ve grown to appreciate some if its features. [...]

[...] The good news is that we were able to embed the chat into our web design which makes us happy. What also makes us happy is if you go to the chat page, you’ll notice right below the “Connect” button a link that says “Free User Name Registration”. If you guys wouldn’t mind taking a moment and registering your nicknames it would help. Basically go through their registration process and then everytime you enter Parachat, enter with whatever nickname you registered and it’ll ask you for a password once the page loads up. Sweet and simple! [...]

  • Damn wanted Zimmermann

  • Yeah, this market. Remember when Ted Lilly signed a 4/$40m with the Cubs? It was like "Well, I guess if you can throw a ball, that's what the 3 and 4 starters are all getting." I'm glad I'm not a GM. Of course, they're spending our money...

  • in this market that seems like a decent deal relative to the market.

    given that d.price will probably get 30m-ish a year, 22m for 29yo zimm doesn't seem bad. i wouldn't complain about him suiting up for the cubs. one less option gone...

  • Zimmermann 5/$110m with Tigers. Youch.

    And the updated predications page:

  • Cubs 3B Christian Villanueva (who is out of minor league options) is hitting 358/464/500 for Obregon in the Mexican Pacific League (LMP), and is leading the LMP in OBP, is second in BAvg and walks, is seventh in SLG, and is tied for 8th in HR. He also has struck out only 16 times in 175 PA. 

  • CTSteve, thanks for spelling Zimmermann correctly. We don't need another first baseman.

  • The media has linked Cueto and the Cubs approximately zero times this winter. I'm thinking there's just not a lot of interest there on the Cubs' part. It seems unlikely.

    If the Cubs miss on Price, Grienke, and Zimmerman, they will aim for a mid-rotation starter via free agency or trade. However, I think this scenario also significantly boosts the odds that they extend Arrieta.

  • The Tigers are going after Zimmermann and the Red Sox will be throwing money at Price. Bringing Cueto back to the NL with the Cubs is looking like a serious possibility. Thoughts?

  • Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe in the financial impact to the Red Sox for not signing Jon Lester early in the free agent process:

    It will be interesting to ultimately add up the cost of letting Jon Lester go.

    The Red Sox botched up their negotiations with Lester in during spring training of 2014, making an initial offer of $70 million that was roughly $40 million short of what it should have been. Talks broke down and Lester was traded in July.

  •'re flip-flopping again?!

    Is this legal? What is the rule here on opining definitively and then changing your mind?

    I am not only surprised at your declaration, but Cutler's better 2015 showing. I don't get it - he went through Martz, Turner, Trestman, Kromer, and now Gase...and he is still here! And. he'll be here mext year too.

  • Happ signs w Jays

    Morsi saying Price won't be a Jay

  • needs more d.beeler and e.jokisch

  • As an Illinois tax payer I appreciate what they r doing

  • + Bankruptcy Court

  • +Price

  • Rondon 2.0!!
