$800 a month isn’t a lot of money.
Interesting speculation on the Ortiz piece from Calcaterra.
David Lauria’s latest.
Victor Sanchez has passed away.
This doesn’t sound too promising.
Jim Duquette makes a few suggestions.

As you may have noticed, there are a few Kris Bryant discussions on the site. One area of some contention is how the CBA actually works. I’ve seen one poster unequivocally state that keeping Bryant down won’t give the Cubs another year of Bryant’s play, even going so far as to say “I am so ####### tired of reading this. It is not about what years the Cubs have Bryant it is about how much they pay him in those years.” Debating such topics without factual information only makes the discussions ...Read More...
With a heavy heart we regret to inform you of the untimely death of longtime Primate Joel Schuster, known on the site as either Jack Vincennes or Bunny Vincennes. Although I didn’t interact directly with Joel often over the years, he will be missed by all as he was always a force to be reckoned with,whether in a contentious Cubs thread or is a heated Lounge thread. Our sympathies go out to his family and friends, especially to his many,many friends on the site.
In lieu of flowers, the Dane ...Read More...

Hope everybody is recovered from last year, because it’s time to schedule this year’s Amazing Athletic Extravaganza! Let’s decide on a date this week that works for the most people possible. Let me know which of these work for you:
June 6, 13, 20, 27
Anybody who’s in contact with Primates who haven’t been around lately, please let ‘em know.
Its hosted an All-Star Game, a Pro Bowl, an NBA All-Star, and a Final Four. Thank god its gone.
ZIPS projects Salazar for 2.7 WAR, but what do stats know?
If he wants the biggest contract, he has to put up some bigger numbers than he has put up the last few years. Even if he doesn’t, he’ll be a very wealthy young man at the end of season.
I think it would have been fair to place the David Robertson deal here.
If he’s not looking for top dollar, I’m sure he will have plenty of teams lined up not to give it to him.
Putting Jacob DeGrom under the microscope.
Shoulder injuries really suck. Fortunately, conditioning methods have improved.
There is a reason the Red Sox won’t include Betts in a deal for Hamels. He a very smart *and* physically-gifted player. He understands that taking walks should never be the goal. They should be a byproduct of a batter not getting pitches to hit. He also understands that the game is about constant adjustments. Not every gifted players gets that. (See Javier Baez for comparison.)
Big Papi wants to know if you’re taking steroids.
Pittsburgh Press, March 27, 1915:
In fact, nearly everything about Davis as a ballplayer was weird. He put up a 98 ERA+ at age 19 in his only MLB season, then never again appeared in the major leagues. A pretty good season if you just glance at it, but somehow Davis ...Read More...

I get that he’s trying to help his client become a free agent sooner but it’s also within the Cubs purview to send him down to the minors to gain another year and use Bryant’s defense as a reason to do so. If Boras really wants to get rid of the contract issue, he can agree to a contract which supersedes this issue. That won’t happen, of course. You don’t squeeze every penny out of a team signing such a contract. In the meantime, Scott, spare us the sanctimonious pontifications about “integrity ...Read More...
I guess the Astros concerns were well founded.
I know this is shocking, but we have yet another example of the Mets being too cheap. This time around, they’ve drastically cut ballpark security to the point that there are safety concerns.
Wait til next year!
Best Fans in Baseball?
I feel like there’s a tasteless joke somewhere in here about how ham is a poor substitute for steak in preventing black eyes, but please don’t be tempted to make it. Instead discuss whether this establishes any ...Read More...
I can’t listen to Felger and Massarotti on the radio. They are the two biggest, factless blowhards on Boston sports radio. When faced with undeniable facts which refute whichever crazy premise they have expressed, the words “I was wrong” have never been expressed.
