    I haven't read anything to indicate they are but you know Theo plays most things close to the vest. My guess is that they will roll with Almora next year and go after another starter and reliever. They have been linked to several starters now (Cobb, Salazar, and Duffy). The craziest thing that keeps popping up is that the Cubs are going to go after Bryce Harper next offseason so they don't want to take on too much salary this year (not sure I buy that but who knows...Harper and Bryant are good friends going back to their Vegas days).

    I haven't read about a specific team. Here is a tweet from Passan about it...

    Christian Yelich...and they are probably going to trade him as well.

    Cardinals trade with Marlins for Ozuna. Looks like Cardinals sending prospects in return. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2017/12/cardinals-to-acquire-marcell-ozuna.html
  5. OT... Evansville Aces

    That was slightly before my time but I vaguely remember hearing about it when I was a little older. That is a true tragedy.

    Here is a link to their top 30 prospects right now. http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2017?list=chc Some are high on Alzolay, Oscar de la Cruz, Tseng (possible #5 starter), and Maples (potential reliever on Cubs for 2018). Also Cubs just signed Smyly who is coming off Tommy John surgery last June, so he probably won't be available until the end of this season or 2019.
  7. At What Point......

    My thing is that I am tired of the roller coaster rides since the mid nineties. When I watched the teams in the mid 80s to that point when I was a kid Indiana was almost always going to make the NCAA tourney. IU was competitive year in and year out. The times we missed the big dance at least we made the NIT finals (84-85 season). I'm tired of the recent trend of winning a big ten/sweet 16 run only to miss tourney next season etc. Once Archie gets "his guys" I expect consistent NCAA tourney appearances. Constantly battling for BIG10 championships. Deep runs in the NCAA tourney every few seasons (final four caliber teams that have realistic shot at championship). No dramatically down seasons that Crean had where we are not even an NIT caliber team or are not competitive. Basically I want to feel we have a chance to win every night even if we aren't ranked in the top 10 that season. Bring in Indiana's top basketball talent. All of this while running a clean program with kids going to class/graduating.

    Agreed it probably won't happen unless the Cubs get blown away by offer. One rumor I saw was the red sox were willing to trade David Price for Schwarber...not sure if that is true or not.

    Alan Trammell and Jack Morris elected to HOF.
  10. At What Point......

    Indiana high school hoops still churns out tons of elite players. So to me, if Archie can recruit Indiana better than we have in quite some time, we will be a national power again. I think Archie is definitely has the skills to coach the team up if he can convince the elite Indiana kids to "stay home". I realize that is a simple response, but I really believe that is the answer.

    This will be an interesting week with winter meetings taking place. Rumor was that the Red Sox want Schwarber from the Cubs now that Yankees got Stanton...

    That's hilarious.

    Cubs were one of the 7 finalist but apparently he wanted to stay on west coast.
  14. Game Day Thread - IU v. Louisville

    The PA announcer for Louisville is really annoying...with the loud exaggerated names every time they make a shot.

    Stanton traded from Marlins to Yankees for Castro and prospects
