I don't see Stan Bowman breaking up that trio. But then again, I didn't expect him to move on from Crawford. The Blackhawks could be pretty good in another two to three years -- and this coming season but be truncated, so that makes it a good time to retool.
Yeah, but 13 consecutive winning seasons and seven postseason trips in 10 years represent meaninful accomplishments. Please list the GMs who have done better.
No, these guys are hockey players. Thomas has already had fun with it on Twitter.
I'd have to go with Doug Gilmour's Adventures in Babysitting at the top drama. Whether or not anything happened there, losing Killer in a swap for the Ghost of Mike Bullard was just awful. The Brendan Shanahan Era was something of a free-for-all with lots of colorful stuff, so that comes in second.
Of course, most of the fans that respond to these polls are the angry ones. They give fans a chance to vent spleens, but they are not an accurate barometer. The same goes for these chats.
I don't know that the Cardinals will get a legit middle-of-the-order hitter for Martinez, at least by the fan's definition. But they can move some payroll perhaps add a cost-controlled guy with some upside to the mix.
Years away. I believe Tucker will need to improve his skating. Making the quick jump is hard. Parayko did it, but he was older. Dunn did it quickly, suprisingly, but Jake Walman has turned into a lengty project. Developing D-men is hard.
Well, this assumes somebody would take Fowler's contract. Who would do that? If Fowler's contract was gone, then the Ozuna equation would have been much different at the end of 2019. As much as fans wanted DeWitt to earn Fowler's contract or pay him to sit on the bench, Bill was not inclined to do that.
True, but teams that kept their stuff together with all of this adversity deserve extra credit.
Yeah, Dave is a nice guy, but losing this series with that payroll could be hard to survive.
No, we are in the middle of a pandemic. Nothing about everyday life is normal.
I don't know if Brayden ordered them to sign the deal and they absolutely refused. can't imagine the agency would just walk away from easy money. It was probably a bit more involved than that.
What does Commish say, $25 million for two years? In a pandemic that seems fair.
I believe he is too hard on his body. He has 25 goals in him if he can stay on the ice, but he has shown no ability to do that.
Hard to imagine that happening here. It would take Molina vouching for him.
DeJong has excellent defensive metrics for his career, so I can see him staying at shortstop for a while.
