Re: Cubs Arb Guys

With such a large gap on Arrieta I wonder if that leads to a 2 year contract for him to buyout his arbitration years. I think they should just roll with the arbitration years but like a 2/$25 contract seems about fair for him.

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

They're totally gonna throw at us, likely Heyward, in the first series of the year and I hope we take the high road again and don't retaliate other than winning the games against them and Joe ripping them post-game again.

Re: The Pitchers we can trade for....

I know I'm wrong, but I can't help getting the feeling that Fowler is a guy for the Cubs like Zobrist was. Working behind the scenes to sign him, but having to complete a trade of Soler to Tampa Bay first. Hopefully your wrong and it's Coghlan + prospects to the Rays for McGee and we will have a 4-...

Re: Gerardo Parra to the Rockies, 3/26

The Cardinals getting one of Cargo or Blackmon makes a lot of sense. Also another team(s) out on Fowler most likely, Rockies and whoever trades for on of their OF.

Re: Yasiel Sierra close to deal with Dodgers

I think the Dodgers will wait until the season to do a big trade to see how the pitchers coming back from injury shake out, but it really looks like they are accumulating assets to do a Gray, Fernandez/Ozuna, one of the Cleveland pitchers trades by the deadline.

We probably should pick a different offseason than the same one as the Dodgers the next time we decide/are able to go over the IFA budget.

Re: Yasiel Sierra close to deal with Dodgers

Damn, I really wanted him. More for the MLB readiness than thinking he will turn out to be anything more than a mid rotation/good bullpen arm, he would've been a really nice depth piece for the year.

Re: Sherman - Cubs (and others obv) expected to be in on Alex Gordon

Fowler- Cubs (we give him a 1 year deal with no QO for next year so he can get his big deal in a better market) Is that something they could just write into the contract?

Re: Ricketts discusses extension for Theo, how much is he worth in your opinion?

It will be interesting to see if he gets any ownership interest, like Beane. I wouldn't be surprised if he's given 5-6/35-40.

I'm more interested in seeing multiple years of 1st rd picks lost (and the draft money lost attached to that)/multiple years of being barred from IFA more than any sort of monetary fine.

Re: Sherman - Cubs (and others obv) expected to be in on Alex Gordon

With the seeming lack of market for hitters this offseason, does Fowler come back to the Cubs? We know they offered him a 2 year deal this offseason but he wanted more years. With guys like Gordon,Cespedes and Upton struggling to get 4 or 5 year deals, things can't be looking good for Fowler. I'd t...

Said it before and I'll say it again: use Arrieta like the gorgeous slab of beef he is and then let him go after 2017. I generally agree, but at the same time looking at how the bullpen will likely have multiple guys that can go 2-3 innings.... I wouldn't necessarily be opposed to occasionally limi...
