Re: Offseason Transactions

Unless the Cubs are able to snag Darvish, it's going to be real disappointing they couldn't get Reed at that price and duration.

It really is. The only benefit is now that we only have like 5 weeks until pitchers and catchers there's almost going to have to be a constant flurry of moves starting soon.

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

I just can't get myself to want Jake back unless his contract is way below the supposed market value. I mean like 3/60, because even at 4/90 or something along those lines I just have zero interest. I hope the Cubs feel the same, because if that 4/112 rumor is true I'm going to vomit.

I like KC's return. I think Trevor Oaks is going to be a nice mid/back end starter.

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

Both Cobb + Cain and Darvish/Arrieta + Yelich put you reallll close to the luxury tax, and make 2019 much more complicated to pursue a high end FA(need to shed significant salary or be ready to go into the draft pick-punishing penalty). I'll believe it when I see it, as much as Darvish + Yelich wou...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

From Rosenthal's article on the Athletic, sounds like Padres asked the Cubs about Javy (doesn't sound like we initiated it).... The Padres balked at the Cubs’ asking price for infielder Javier Baez at the winter meetings, moving on to other pursuits, sources say. The Cubs likely would have wanted a...

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

I wonder if we are trying to do something like 3/70 (~$23 aav) with Arrieta or Darvish with it being broken down 25/25/20 first 3 years and opt out after next year with a ~$5 mil buyout. Give both a solid base if they want it but potential to get more entering a more spend friendly market next offs...

I"m honestly not even sure Arrieta is getting 100M anymore based on how this market is shaping up. 4/100 is about the most I could see someone shelling out.

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado (and he wants to go back to SS)

The knee surgeries don't bother anyone? Sure he's young, but with his bigger frame at SS and the wear and tear already on his knees I feel much less confident in his future than Harper's.

I feel like the Dodgers' needs are definitely more pitching related than bat. Even if they can resign Kershaw they're still going to have to go after an arm like Keuchel.

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado (and he wants to go back to SS)

Losing 4 Years of Russell, for 1 year of Machado and then a 300+M FA contract in 2019, vs keeping 4 years of Russell and spending 350-400M on Harper. Pretty much a no brainer from my side.

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

Why do people hate having elite defense up the middle? Trading Russell is a defensive downgrade at SS and whoever replaces Baez at 2B is a downgrade there as well. You don't sign Chatwood and then weaken the infield defense like that.

I irrationally don't want to move Baez at all. I enjoy it far too much when other team's fans hate both Baez and Contreras for basically everything they do. It's nice to be on the positive end of that after so many years.

Even though seemingly everyone who has sources is saying Cobb will come here, I am a bit surprised it hasn't actually happened yet. Like either he's really not going to give a Hickey discount and is looking for top dollar, or the Cubs are still talking trade. I think it's more that the Cubs want to...
