Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

If we get Bryce, I think an Almora/Heyward CF platoon would be nice. I hope you are right, because I agree. Id like to keep Schwarber, its just he has so much more value than any of the other guys we'd be willing to trade and could actually get us something exciting back. I really don't know if Sch...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

This move surprised me. I would have thought Bass was a part of the September discussion, perhaps though not likely 25th man on postseason roster. You wouldn't do this, then add him right back to the 40 man would you? I guess him clearing maybe gives an indication he wouldn't get rule 5 claimed if ...

Re: Addison Russell

Any of you bozos think he might be injured? It came out last month (maybe a little later actually) he has some sort of hand or finger injury and basically just has to play through it. It won’t get worse that they’re risking further injury but also won’t get better without extended rest. I think it’...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

I'm optimistic about them being able to move one or both of Heyward and Chatwood. Seattle? I mean this entirely seriously, I want to keep Heyward. We can still fit Bryce in with him and I’ll buy in he’s figured it out enough offensively and he’s still good on defense. Plus I think he’s an awesome t...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

Is there a way we could pay Bryce like 28 mil in the first year or two of the deal and then 42 in years 3 and 4 as a way to stay below the worst penalty and give us time to unload/let expire other contracts? It’s the total guaranteed money divided by the guaranteed years for LT purposes, it doesn’t...

I’d like to see something like Give Hamels 2/18-25 if this continues Sign Bryce to 30-35 AAV Re-sign Chavez for Duensings deal this year Attach Almora and another nothing prospect with Chatwood and take a minor leaguer or backup catcher back Trade like Caritini with a prospect to move Duensing Non-t...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Yeah no way would I vote for JD, even though he's having a great offensive year, but I could get behind Betts or Ramirez. Especially if this Trout injury keeps him out or makes him bad the rest of the year. I just can't see giving the MVP to a DH only when there's plenty of good other candidates an...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Yeah I don't really care about any of that as a main reason to vote for a guy. As a tie breaker, sure. But there's 3 better candidates, IMO. it is the tiebreaker, and a huge one; the main candidates all have monster stats but Trout gets substantially worse the higher the leverage situation and Mart...

Re: Addison Russell

My only issue with the idea of trading Russell, is I'm guessing his value isn't all that high and he could still fill a decent role on the team. He probably shouldn't be planned as a 145-150+ game starter next year with Bote and hopefully Bryce around. But he can still be pretty valuable for us in a...

Nightengale having a great night on Twitter. Apparently JD Martinez is an mvp finalist but Trout isn’t. i think i'm totally on board with this, and i might go a step further to make it really scorching and say he might not be top-5 for me at the moment did you know: Trout has worst clutch score in ...

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

What's the general take on Schwarber this season? Like, my dumb opinion would be that he seems...fine. And seemingly a decent number of people here were expecting/hoping for a breakout season for him. Obviously, having a 30 dong-mashing, 3 fWAR, LH platoon OF isn't a BAD thing...but what were some ...

Re: Addison Russell

Trade Almora for whatever in the offseason, sign Bryce and Russell becomes a defensive sub/2 time a week starter (probably mostly vs LHP) and last man on bench. Problem solved. This is on the assumption Bote can play some OF (specifically CF) and joe said last night he will get a chance to do that i...

Yeah iirc, they had a team option and let Jason decide if he wanted it picked up or not to go get a multi year deal somewhere or stay.

It just sucks there were no other options available last year to trade Eloy for. Q was the best option and we needed him.

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

Yeah I am not expecting 100% KB when he comes back. But they are clearly hoping and waiting that maybe happens. Even when he was dealing with this and playing he at least was hitting like .260 and getting on base at a decent route, the power was just gone. So that still is kinda a useful guy but obv...
