Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

So if White Sox, Bulls, Hawks, NBC are set and leaking that fact, are the Cubs behind the curve, or up in the air? Yeah idk if this is necessarily good or bad. They knew they likely weren’t coming along with whatever the Cubs did. So they had to go get set up with something, hopefully it means we h...

Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

Hopefully this is good news that whatever we have been planning on is coming together and not just like plan D after it fell apart

Re: Daniel Descalso

It really isn't. If he’s taking the LaStella role it’s hard to see how this is a bad move. Hate is a strong word, but why not just keep Tommy at less money? Because he sucks. He can’t play defense anywhere and if any of these batted ball/swing changes stick for Descalso he’s quite a bit better (whi...

Re: Daniel Descalso

Crack job as always, Bob. Jesus, he’s just running with the no money thing with us in every move like there’s no context between having no money for Bryce vs filling out the rest of the roster on low cost moves.

Re: Daniel Descalso

Back-up shortstop to start the season until Russell is off suspension. Without Russell, Descalso is at best the 4th best shortstop on the roster. Yeah Bote is the guy for the main backup SS role, imo. Maybe they still add some guy with minor league options to ST to have a better option but Bote/Des...

Re: Daniel Descalso

He had the same xWOBA as Zobrist last year and was better than Javy, Willy, LaStella and Happ.

Re: Daniel Descalso

Hard to hate this move for that little of money. Even if it’s just for the LaStella replacement, it makes the team better. Hopefully something bigger is cooking with a contract being moved though.

I would have been more than fine with us doing that deal if/when we don’t get Bryce https://twitter.com/ken_rosenthal/status/1074813260115951616?s=21 Rmack not taking it well https://twitter.com/jamfan40/status/1074814369609986048?s=21 https://twitter.com/jamfan40/status/1074815548452728833?s=21 Lol

n/m, just saw that the Angels are there, just mostly covered up.

The Field has 2nd best odds too. So you get Yankees, White Sox, Astros, etc in there. If you bet it.

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

They're still pretty thin, but the Mets are another bat away from being very solid Agree, they really should be in on Machado but I know their owners legit have no money. Lowrie or Pollock would be a solid addition there. But Conforto/Nimmo/Ramos/Cano/Frazier isn’t a bad core of the offense, it’s l...

it seems like you started freaking out when the winter meetings ended, but i think the fact that the cubs did nothing at the meetings makes it more likely that they're in on bryce.

I hope you’re right

That could be something I could get behind in the more likely looking no Bryce offseason. The ideas and reasoning behind it certainly makes sense.

Re: 2018-19 Offseason Rumors

Tulo costs the league minimum and lets us fire Russell into the sun. He would be a phenomenal signing. Other than being able to get rid of Russell there’s nothing good about this move. Tulo is washed up, but I guess he’s a name who use to be good so will get fans excited when we don’t spend on Bryc...
