I use baseball cube to look up college statistics. 

yes, baseballcube is still useful on occasion.  I was kidding Cas because it was a site from the distant past that has been almost completely replaced by b-ref and other sites.  It's kind of like Cots Contracts except I think that one no longer has any use (not sure).

I think Cots is still the primary source for contract information, is it not?

You would know better than me.  I admittedly don't pay a lot of attention to contract information.  Most of the individual contract stuff that I care about can be found on B-Ref

I am so disinterested in this team right now. The only reason I come here is because of the people here. It’s sort of like Cheers but with no Diane or Rebecca, which is disappointing. 

I like to think of myself as Frasier Crane only less insecure and with doc martens instead of wingtips or penny loafers.

A team like the Braves or Astros could have a player worth taking in the rule 5 draft.

Texas, Tampa Bay, San Diego, Yanks.

Cots is still very useful for bonuses and performance based clauses that are not easily seen in B-ref.  Then there's Scherzer's bizarre contract that I personally don't think is accurately displayed on B-ref.

Can't wait to get home and read the Baseball Weekly.

I wish there was still a newspaper like that.  Newspapers are old news, but they are easier on the eyes and easier to read while eating or taking a crap.  I miss The Sporting News.

I wondered if they would still think they needed to protect Hill.

I don’t follow it closely at all but surprised they protected Hill over Rodriguez.

I think he gets the benefit of the doubt due to all of the developmental time he has missed due to injuries.  I doubt Rodriguez gets drafted—can’t see a team hiding him on an MLB roster for a year.  There have to be better prospects to select.  Looking forward to seeing a list.
