How did you determine the top 10? Based on WAR alone, in 2008, Posey was the best player drafted, and it hasn't even been close. (41.7 WAR compared to 19.8 for Kimbrel) .

we found the Cubs fan, everyone.

The Cubs winning the division by 16 games is the most ridiculous thing I've seen on this site, perhaps ever.

Agree7 Disagree2

1, not a Cubs fan.
2, in the past six seasons, at least one team has won their division by 12 games or more.
3, the Cubs now have Hamels and Darvish (combined for 20 starts for CHC last season) replacing Chatwood and Montgomery (4.75 ERA combined last season) .
4, They get Bryant back (missed 60 games last season) .
5, They're one of the deepest teams in the league to offset injuries.

They may not win by 16, but they will win 100 games and easily win the division.

Agree0 Disagree6

20 Mar 2019 15:31:57
The NL Central is probably the best division in baseball. The Cardinals got better. The Reds got better. The Brewers are really damn good. To suggest the Cubs, who didn't even win the division last year suddenly take an improved division by 16 games is completely laughable.

You also have the Brewers losing 12 more games from 2018. Did you think last season was a total fluke?

As far as "deepest team". I'm confused by that suggestion. They have literally zero farm system. Their bullpen is atrocious. Their bench depth isn't what it was praised to be. And several of their "stars" aren't that good (Zobrist, Schwarber, Heyward, Happ) .

They might win the division. It will, by no means be "easily".

Agree4 Disagree0

21 Mar 2019 16:23:44
Flawed logic, you completely ignore the Brewers won the division last year and yes it was because of the one game playoff. But they have improved from last year, the Cardinals have gotten better, and the Reds have gotten better, and the Pirates are the Pirates, so winning the division by 16 games and winning 100 games in that division won't happen.

GREAT TEAMS PART 3: The 1927 New York Yankees Baseball Team

I think Machado and/or Harper should sign a contract with an opt-out after 1 year. The market just isn't there this year. I don't see them chancing it and signing a 1 year deal, but i think they will require an opt-out after year one to give them a chance to enter next year (age 27) to see if the market is better.

Agree0 Disagree2

31 Jan 2019 00:29:20
Both Arrieta and Hosmer signed very generous deals late into the winter. Arrieta didn't even sign until March 12th last year.

There is zero reason for either of those guys to panic yet. They'll get paid.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Jan 2019 15:00:21
Although i agree they shouldn't panic, my comment was more towards what i think would be best for them. Outside of Philly and Chicago (AL) there doesn't seem to be anyone willing to give Machado anywhere near what he is wanting. As for Harper, i think the only teams in are Philly and Washington. Unless another team comes from nowhere (which is very possible) and offers a crazy deal, then i could easily see them pushing for an opt-out after year one to at least give them an option.

23 years, $630 million combined.

The market seemed to work out just fine for them.

Jay Bruce and Ian Kinsler shouldn't even be discussed when it comes to top 10. That alone makes this awful, but the fact that you missed so many great players shows you don't really follow baseball

Players missing that shouldn't be

1B Jesus Aguilar
2B Ozzie Albies?
2B Scooter Gennett
2B Whit Merrifield
SS Trevor Story
LF Eddie Rosario
