That is correct. But wouldn't you rather have them like this than a team that wins 75 games? Either way they are ass.....but being this bad, at least they should get an excellent young player in the draft. IMOP, they are doing exactly what's needed.

LOL, round two of this shit starts when the Bears season kicks off. So great to be a Chicago fan these days....
Eh, they start that lottery of the top 6 teams next year. So, they need to be bottom 6

Is that right? Good Lord, does MLB have to play follow the leader on everything? I assume it'll be the lower you finish, the better the chance you have of getting #1. If so, bottom three would be even better.

Call me naive. I thought we will see very small improvements as the season goes. Nope, this team is trending in the opposite direction toward 1990's era. .

This doesn't surprise me at all. The team is loaded with AAA players who should still be in AAA. I think the only reason they toyed with the .500 mark early is that no one knew a whole lot about these guys.....once teams got some reliable scouting reports in hand.....game, set, match.

I think they are now the 5th worse team in baseball and with a half a season left....they could easily get down to 3 where they'd have an equal shot to get the #1 pick. At least that's what @SilenceS is telling us.

We can hope that they tank down to #3. This year should have been a white flag year anyways.

I just hope that next year is taken a bit more serious. Axe the AAAA. Trade away expiring guys. DFA Heyward and start fresh.

Bell, Gallo. That balances the line up. Move Morel to 2B and target Kramer for CF.

Rotation I don't expect much to be honest.



Starting Pitchers
Jacob deGrom, New York Mets – $30.5 million player option
Aaron Nola, Philadelphia Phillies – $16 million club option
Joe Musgrove, San Diego Padres – 2023 free agent
Carlos Rodón, San Francisco Giants – $22.5 million player option
Nathan Eovaldi, Boston Red Sox – 2023 free agent
Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles Dodgers
Chris Sale, Boston Red Sox –$27.5 million player option
Chris Bassitt, New York Mets – 2023 free agent
Noah Syndergaard, Los Angeles Angels – 2023 free agent
Luis Severino, New York Yankees – $15 million club option
Charlie Morton, Atlanta Braves – 2023 free agent
Adam Wainwright, St. Louis Cardinals –
Sonny Gray, Minnesota Twins – $12 million club option

I thought this didn’t take effect until the 2023 season.
