Re: Theo Speak

https://twitter.com/CSNMooney/status/847619317390757888 Great article from Mooney. Theo is just the horsefeathering man.

I actually predict Schwarber gets a lot of backup Catcher starts in 2018.

Not really an old post but there was a couple articles that came out a couple years ago that the Cubs were one of the surprisingly few teams interested in drafting Trout in 09. Anybody have a link to these articles?

To me, the improvements he's already made offensively makes it much, much more likely that he'll keep improving. His upside is still very far from his current product, which is still a 3 win guy up the middle. Personally, I'm not concerned if they DO deal him, only because I feel like we'd need to ...

Has anybody actually reported its likely Soler. If Davis is a FA next year and has injury concerns it better be like Candelario & Caratini. Maybe Sczur.

Yeah, I think everything they're doing is setting up for Harper and Machado.

It's cool because the Cubs will get Otani and probably one of Trout/Kershaw.

Sure the Rays need to ask but Theo isnt trading Schwarber for a pitcher turning 29 and struggled a ton last year.

Bregman isn't going to the OF in Houston. Sounds like they want to move Correia to 3B and put Bregman back at SS. They have such a logjam of young talent all over the place.

Re: Random Offseason Musings and Rumors

Could any team really match the Cubs firepower to land Trout in those deals?

Also have Happ available to season deals.

The first deal I might be sour on. I guess we would have to start TLS at 2B and Zobrist in LF.
