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

In this scenario, I'd rather sign Bryce Harper for the same type of deal and team him with KB for three years and get the single draft pick for Bryant if he leaves. Heck, worst case, team them together for two seasons and trade KB for a lesser prospect package than you'd get now, but still a solid ...

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

Based on trading Bryant though. I can see the “trade your elite third baseman for prospects and eat it to” logic, but I don’t like the idea of trading Bryant after what was by far his worst season, and I don’t like Machado over Bryant going forward. Bryant at less money, shorter term > Machado + pr...

Re: Week 10: Lions at Bears Sunday noon on Fox

I think they’re good, but I don’t see them beating the Saints, Rams (both on the road) and an AFC team (Chiefs/Pats let’s assume) 3 straight games and that’s assuming beating the Panthers/Vikings most likely in WC weekend.

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

Dexter, Happ and Ross were playing golf today. I don’t care how dumb and irrational the idea is. Figure out a way to get Dexter back, send Chatwood (owed less overall $ and 1 less year) and a prospect or something. Then send Almora away for whatever you can get. Get the band back together for the F...

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

The other problem with Gordon is Joe would lead him off anytime he started because “he’s fast and slaps the ball around and that’s what a leadoff hitter is and does” even though he walked 9 times last year (BB% under 2%) and Almora has a higher career OBP than him. Hasnt join been the opposite of t...

Because I don't want to read a report right now ... Just for fun, because of Theo's comments about it being "virtually impossible" Can anyone come up with Bryant deal that a) Makes sense for the Cubs b) Makes sense for the opposing team? c) Offers the Cubs a headline player d) Offers the ...

Gross, he's not a leadoff hitter https://twitter.com/670TheScore/status/1061007271457705984 Why's that gross? I don't think he's all that good (or at least a ~5 win player like last year, he's probably closer to 2-3), he's going to be 30 when the year starts, he certainly isn't a leadoff hitter and...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Apparently Harper was spotted at the Blackhawks game last night or something? I know there was the White Sox thing, but maybe Charles the Cat was right about him meeting with the Cubs this weekend, too. Charles The Cat is the hero we need right now with all the idiot, hack beat writers doing their ...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

Kaplan tried to push this same BS in the last month and Sharma (one of the only good Cubs writers) shut it down then.

So nobody needs to give clicks.

I just don't believe in untouchables. Why limit yourself?” So it was the old, player wasn...

Open to trading KB? What the actual horsefeathers is happening

Yeah I’m calling BS on that. Didn’t Theo basically shut down the same report from Kaplan or one of the other local idiots a month ago?

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

I’m sure Bryce would sign a deal with no opt outs if he was given ~$100 million more than the highest offer and a full NTC because those are the type of trade offs you’d have to give for him not having opt outs. Whether or not you think opt outs are good or bad or like them or not doesn’t matter. T...

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

Wonder who Jason Heyward is signing with this off-season. Yeah that’s not the point though. Players who already have leverage (due to age positional scarcity or whatever) will always ask for opt outs. Once one team is willing to kick in, they all have to. You might as well be complaining about the ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Bryce and Boras meeting with the White Sox almost has to entirely be to leverage some team he actually wants to go to, to up an offer or jump in that currently isn’t. He’s not actually going to end up there or St Louis.
