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...

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.

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...

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...

I'm seeing talk of Trump getting kicked out of the presidency by the 25th amendment lately, and I think it would be smart of the Republicans to do this before the new House gets sworn in if they do it at all. They don't want to elevate Nancy Pelosi to the VP spot and still have to deal with a Dem s...

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

https://twitter.com/jorgecastillo/status/1062088096999591936?s=21 $17M for a 32-year old starting pitcher who hasn’t topped 130 innings in any of the last 6 seasons seems a bit steep. He was really good for them this year once he got healthy. But yeah, glad they got stuck with that LT hit and it’s ...

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 ...

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...

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.

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.
