Re: 2020 roster

1 year of Quintana isn't even coming close to bringing back a near MLB ready top 25 prospect, though I'd love for it to happen.

Re: 2020 roster

I know we have mostly written off any KB deal, but if you make one, I feel like it has to start with an all star caliber ML player AND a top 50ish prospect. Dude has won an MVP already, and while he has had injury issues, he has looked to be improving upon that MVP season before getting hurt each o...

Going to be hard to fill out the lineup card when you only know half the player's names.

Re: 2020 roster

The Cubs are absolutely going to need guys like Nico who are super cheap to offset all the rising salaries. Unless he can land you a SP with some MLB success who is still inexpensive then i have no interest in moving him. You can't have guys at every position making millions and millions.

Yup. Playing the entire 4th like you were running out the clock was a great plan.

So now what? Change was definitely needed but who are the top names to fill the void?


I think one of Loretta/Ross are most likely, but Johnson/Beltran are my favorites.

Re: 2020 roster

Explain to me why we would move Schwarber. The guy puts up a .958 2nd half OPS with a 22.2K% on a .246 babip good for a 139wRC+. People are clamoring to throw 4 years and 60M at Castellanos, but want to move a cheaper Schwarber. I don't get it.

Re: Felipe Vazquez is going to jail

Even if he somehow only gets a short sentence, I can't see MLB ever allowing him to step on the field again. Pretty huge blow to the Pirates.

Maybe you should bench him if you're not going to let him do anything but hand off and throw screens.

It's time for Mitch to see the bench. He checks down as often as Kyle Orton but with half the accuracy when he actually goes down field.
