8/184 with an opt out according to Rogers. Haven't seen what year(s) have the opt out yet.

I am still in shock as a result of sensory overload.
During a "Not For Women Only" panel discussion, former Cubs pitcher Mike Bielecki asked several players to invent a baseball catch phrase for Viagra. Theriot's ad campaign: "Viagra -- I always play hard."

Its pretty cool having a premier, young outfielder. Theres only so many of them... Trout. Harper. McCutchen. Stanton. Heyward.

Gammons says there's two opt outs.

Reading on other sites that they are saying Cobb for Baez is back on the table. Hope that's not the case. I'm not too keen on that at this juncture. Would rather wait things out a bit and see if something pops cheaper than expected.

The comical thing about this to me is that, even without any information from Heyward himself, Heyward, just taking a guess, probably valued winning over the money in choosing the team with the younger MLB core. The Nats could have a nice future, but that depends on kids coming through, which they may, but is at yet uncertain. The Cards are sort of at a crossroads with an aging core.


I'm pretty sure the guy is trolling Cardinal fans.

Weird ... two opt outs? Wonder if it's something like Year 3 and Year 4, letting him pick and choose his time, dependent upon his production at said time, while he is still in his prime.

My Co-workers brother is a scout for the Cubs and was recently telling me the Cubs were players for BOTH Heyward and Gordon.Was taking it worth a grain of salt because this had so many moving parts but after today ....WIth reports of the Cubs interested in Lucroy and Levine saying Gordon is next. He told me the Cubs are talking with the Rangers about taking Montero and dealing Soler to San Diego for one of their 4 catchers plus pitching. Using the freed up cash to sign Gordon.

Which one falls to third and why? What am I missing?

Well, by fWAR, Carp was at 5.2 vs Lackey at 3.6, iirc.

Ah, gotcha. Duh.

I would love to see a Soler trade and a Fowler re-signing.

lol - it just hit me that we've done all this so far without trading a single real prospect this offseason.

Yeah, a lot, a lot of flexibility for the Cubs right now. Heck, considering most of our talent is in the lower levels, perhaps they simply sit back and let the farm grow.

Meh, that gives up a first round supplemental pick, too. As much as they are on contact this offseason, I have to believe they'd prefer Span and the first roundish pick.

Also they could still trade Javy and not yet have traded one of "their guys".

I wonder if we'd be targeting someone like Keone Kela from the Rangers, who is supposed to be on the block.

Levine is saying Gordon is the next OF in line to get a deal I think. I don't think he means the Cubs.
