  1. Mike Trout is signing an extension with the Angels. 12 years $430 million. At least now the Philly fans will shut up about their superteam and how Trout only wants to play here.
  2. It's out! I'm downloading it now. Probably won't play it until the morning. Woo hoo! I'll be carrying over my guy from MLB 14, that I carried over to MLB 15, but I am interested in the whole new scouting thing, so I'll probably create a closer or someone new to play with. Fingers crossed they fixed the online, so I don't have to share-play with my chums like last year.
  3. According to Ken Rosenthal, there’s an April 20th opt-out, which is one of the weirder ones I’ve heard of. It makes sense though. If CC and Severino are back and healthy, the Yanks won’t need him, and Gio won’t want to be the #6/long relief guy so he’d be free to go somewhere else.
  4. Love, love, love that move. With Severino expected to miss all of April, and who knows how much more, and Sabathia being older and also starting the season on the IL (that's going to take some time to get use to...) I was hoping we'd sign Gio. My dad wanted Keuchel, but the only way Dallas will sign a one year deal is if it's for like $18 million or so, I'd imagine. Giving Gio $3 million is a downright steal. Great deal by the Cash-man.
  5. So, in a change from the Dome, I'm looking for some rules. I'm going to be playing a game as the Orioles, with the rosters from after the Machado trade. I was going to start with Machado, but I know I'll get a better deal done than the Orioles did in real life, so I'll play with the hand they've dealt me. I intend to turn this into a Cube diary, so I'm looking for some rules/objectives to accomplish. So far I have: 1. Stick to a strict budget. I'm not sure what that is yet, but I don't want to go over a particular amount for salaries. 2. One trade per month, except July when I'll be allowed to trade any player with no controllable years left. 3. Always keep a 90-man roster, but don't need to always have a full 40-man roster. So yeah, give me some more ideas, rules, or objectives I should set for myself with entertainment being the primary goal.
  6. We should do an EWB Spring Training meet up next year. I was thinking of going next spring anyway, but if we could get a small group together, we could hit up a home game for each represented team.
  7. If an NFL franchise needs to interview minority head coaches for vanacies, then I think New England should be forced to hire a minority at wide receiver each offseason. Friggin' Trump-lovin' racists only hire the whities.
  8. Way to go, Maxx! Let's Go Yank-ees!!! *clap clap clapclapclap*
  9. I don’t think we are allowed to do college football jokes in this thread, guys.
  10. Again, while they’re losing jobs, other players are getting them. It’s not like they’re saying one less pitcher on the roster now. They’re saying find a pitcher who can get you more than one out a game.
  11. Specialists may lose their jobs, but pitchers that can pitch to both lefty and righty hitters are still going to have jobs. I hate pitchers that pitch to one batter and then get taken back out. If you can’t pitch three batters or at least end the inning, maybe you shouldn’t be pitching in the bigs.
  12. Sorry Busch. Looks like the Giants are still going to need to draft a quarterback.
  13. I don't mind the three batter rule. I hate, hate, hate, hate the idea of putting guys on base. Do it for the All-Star game, fine whatever, I don't really watch it anyway. But there should never be someone put on base for no raisin in actual games that matter.
  14. I guess we'll always have his hot girlfriend on draft night.
  15. If this was 2010, Cloudy would kick all your asses.
  16. I don't think they realize there is one.
  17. https://www.drafttek.com/NFL-Trade-Value-Chart.asp Nope! They'd have to give up the #6, #17, AND #37 to match the value of #1.
  18. Beckham said a few hours ago he preferred Rams (LA) or 49ers (San Fran) and instead he’s headed to Ohio.
  19. If you're a Rule-5 guy and get drafted, you have to stay on a 25-man roster though. So it's not necessarily that the other team didn't want you, they may just not have the room to carry you on their main roster. Also what kind of research do you need to go to a ballgame down the road from your house? Just go and have fun. Minor league baseball is the best!
