Re: College Football - Week 12 (Nov. 18)

Wisconsin just isn't very good, I really want to see them lose just because them getting in the playoffs is going to leave out a better team.

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

Law wrote this about Hellickson in his "FA Bargain" article, as a 1 year buy low guy for our 2nd or 3rd SP addition to get reunited with Hickey to try and re-find the changeup he intrigues me.... Hellickson lost his changeup in 2017, turning him from a league-average-or-so starter into a r...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I’m not even mad at myself that I don’t recognize half of those guys From left to right.... Miggy, Hendricks, Schwarber, Travis Wood, Grimm, Borzello, Jake, Happ, Lackey. Don’t know what that group is doing together other than I saw someone say they think it’s Hendricks wedding this weekend. I’m su...

The Giants made an offer for Stanton and are willing to take on a good chunk of his contract according to Rosenthal

MLB is Investigating Their Balls

After commissioner Rob Manfred spent the entire 2017 season denying the baseballs were “juiced,” Major League Baseball has appointed a committee to conduct a study to determine whether that’s actually the case. According to Kristie Ackert of the Daily News, Mets assistant general manager John Ricco...

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

Just spitballin here but, is there any chance the FO has any interest in Stanton? What kind of players would be involved if the Cubs took on the entire remaining salary? It seems they are saving up for Harper next year but Stanton would actually be cheaper (and older, I realize). Sign Cobb, Lackey ...

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

Just a hypothetical, what would Hendricks bring back in the current market? Like could he get another teams Russell or Benintendi?

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

If it is just Britton (if it's a larger deal, Gausmen, Bundy, etc. I'd get it) I'd be pretty surprised and upset if it's any of the rumored guys from the ML roster going for him, especially this early in the offseason. I almost wonder if Montgomery would be the guy here. The Orioles can still put u...

Archer scares me that he only throws two pitches and if/when his FB velo dips how effective he can be.

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

legitimately keeping the powder dry for bryce harper wouldn't exactly break my heart. and i fully expect a trade for an SP on top of what looks like a very likely cobb signing. yeah, I have no expectations beyond what Rogers says above (cobb + closer) and a trade for a starting pitcher. sitting on ...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

Jesse Rogers' article today saddened me quite a bit. Obviously, Rogers isn't great. But, it still made me think.... His off season expectations seem to be that Schwarber definitely is at the low end of his value and we're not selling low on him. He doesn't think Happ will bring back the young cost ...

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

I just don't really think Jake has much left (as far as being an above average starting pitcher), even with him sort of reinventing himself and having success late last year. I get the worry and 2015 god mode is never coming back, might get 2-5 start stretches close to it but never for long periods...

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

Fangraphs top 50 FAs and salary predictions is out, Cameron has Arrieta at 4/96 and their crowd source median is 5/110 and average is 4.6/102.5. If his market is the 4/96 Cameron guessed I'd be all over that if we are going to spend any sort of real money on FA pitchers and not go cheap/through trad...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

I’d rather just spend money on RP’s than trade for and pay the price it would take to get Britton. Unless somehow like a Happ for Britton and Gausmen or Bundy deal was possible but guessing they’d want more. i could swear matt spiegel fishes this board for ideas https://twitter.com/MattSpiegel670/s...

*Stupid 3-team trade idea that idk if I even like it or if it’s fair*

Giants apparently like Billy Hamilton

Giants get: Hamilton
Reds get: Happ and a Cubs minor league player or 2
Cubs get: Melancon, Iglesias and Tyler Beede

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

Britton makes perfect sense for us. He's on a one year deal and falls off the books in time for the 2018 class. Pair him with Morrow and you've got your 2018 closer groomed and ready to take over. The package didn't seem that bad, when Houston almost dealt for him last year. Collin Moran was the le...

Re: Offseason Transactions

Russell’s a solid starting ML SS with an elite pedigree entering peak prime power years. That’s...even if you don’t buy him becoming a superstar that is a wildly valuable player. It would be devastating to go from him to Baez in 2018. Of course he's valuable, which is why he would probably get us s...
