Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

If all those companies are in on bidding for RSN’s I have a hard time believing our TV Deal is falling short of what we were projecting we could get that could allegedly be the reason we are crying poor all the sudden. And if our projections aren’t matching the reality of what we can get I’d blame ...

Now that the Mariners sell off is official hopefully we can go get Pazos and dump at least one of Kintzler/Duensing/Chatwood’s contract there

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

2/10 for Suzuki seems a bit rich for a not quite full time starting C but better than a backup C type guy who’s 35 and even though he’s had two back to back 2 WAR years he pretty much netted 0 WAR the previous 2 years before that and has more sub 1 WAR seasons the last 7 years than over 1 WAR years....

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

Kluber is INSANELY good. The Indians, if they traded him, would receive an absolute HAUL. His last 5 seasons? Over 200 innings each year. 31 fWAR. Seriously, THIRTY ONE. 32.6 bWAR. I mean....... horsefeathers lol. The Indians can and would do much better than anything we've got to offer, that start...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

If the Mariners are tearing it down, why would they trade for an arb eligible headliner in Schwarber? Especially for Diaz, who would garner tons of interest and Seattle could define the shape of the return. Dipoto always likes the half ass it between competing and rebuilding is my only rebuttal bec...

https://twitter.com/EricFisherSBJ/status/1063106249141706752?s=19 I know there are some concerns about the Cubs' tv deal given the alleged money crunch this winter, but this is certainly a very positive sign.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Yeah I don’t think we are anywhere near a full time team there. Maybe a random series or 3 moved there during the year or like doing this Japan Series thing there in the offseason, but I don’t think we are close to a full time team working there.

If the national deal got a healthy bump, hopefully that means whatever we are trying to pull off with our TV deal isn’t totally horsefeathers.

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

My buddy just said he saw a rumor on ESPN about Schwarber and Azlolay for Edwin Diaz. Even being a huge Schwarber fan, contingent on making a big offensive free agent signing, I...don't hate it? I’d probably do that. Especially if Bryce is in play and if they’d take Kintzler or Duensing back in the...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

Who says no? 1 of Schwarber/Happ, Q, Kintzler and a prospect (I’d include Adbert personally) for Kluber. Reasoning is the Indians are apparently strapped/not wanting to spend. They didn’t even offer Brantley the QO because they couldn’t fit that $ in if he accepted. Kluber is owed $1.5 million more...
