I still think they're in on Bryant. They added a 110 OPS+ bat in Ozuna, but lost a 132 in Donaldson. They need to do more.

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

In any trade with Arizona Corbin Carroll is a must have for me. Already a top 50 guy in my eyes and a good chance to work into the top 20.

That glimmer of hope was fun for the short time it lasted. Now to continue watching nothing happen for the rest of the offseason.

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

Perhaps, but we also just saw a high upside young arm get moved for a DH with average at best power The Rays also got back a very underrated Randy Arozarena, who has ML ready CF potential to go with a well rounded high OBP bat in the minors. He came up and made some loud contact at the ML level to ...

I really don't think Canning is even remotely realistic as I'd say he's the odds on favorite to put up better numbers this year while being cheaper and with much more control.

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

Would take substantially more prospect capital and I doubt they're ready to empty the farm again Would it though? The feedback from the Bryant trade rumors is that even superstars with "just" two years of control aren't super valued right now for totally legit reasons Perhaps, but we also...

JMart,Arozarena, Comp A for Liberatore,Comp B and a low level catcher. I don't get it at all. TB has a DH in Shogo and that's ignoring Martinez just isn't very good

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Based on how I was around 20k in line last year and contacted this year, I don't think there's going to be much of a wait this time around.

With the Orioles signing Iglesias, the Cubs are now one of 3 teams to not give out a guaranteed contract this offseason.

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

This offensive line is getting torched by Minnesota's backup linemen. They pretty much have to take an OL in the 2nd round.

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

A team that went into the year mentioned among the Superbowl favorites is now struggling to handle Minnesota's reserves. I can't even take solace in them getting a better draft pick.

There are reports claiming the Reds are the favorites to land Akiyama. This pretty much guarantees my complete lack of interest in the Cubs next season.

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

The point of trading KB is not to make the team better in 2020, it's to make them better later. They clearly don't want to give him a huge contract so you either move him for pieces in/close to the majors with an eye on making the team better in 2021+ or you let him play on a mediocre team and hope ...

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

That list doesn't make any sense at all. There is an enormous gulf between some of those guy's value. Toro is not in the same league as the rest. By the way, Toro-Hernandez is the name of one guy.

Re: Madison Bumgarner to the Dbacks

Actually makes the Dbacks rotation pretty solid. Bumgarner, Ray,Weaver,Gallen,Kelly isn't spectacular but it should be fairly good. Still think they need a bat. Maybe Seth Beer if he mashes spring training.

That's.....really underwhelming. I guess it was all about salary relief. Rangers basically got Kluber for Almora and Maples.


I think you're underestimating Clase who is really good, but yes it's a bad return.

If you could get Robles, its likely that not much more than a lottery ticket comes back with him. Even on the high side I can't imagine much more than Seth Romero.

But we're not talking about a 1-1 deal here. As a main piece you'd realistically be hard pressed to do better. Also - how many hitters are finished products as 22 year-old rookies? Bryant was one, ironically - but what if we'd judged Rizzo or Baez by how they produced in their first full seasons in...

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

I dont see why Darvish would have to use Bryant to free up money. I think he might bring value back himself.
