He’s very intriguing, trade him for something before he dies

Re: Regular Season Rumors

If he was claimed by the Cubs then the Nationals would immediately pull him back. We aren't getting someone that good, but I do know the Cubs are looking. Seems like a fake rumor to me. It does seem fake and an odd fit for us.... but why would the Nats pull him back if they can get a little somethi...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

This is a very very fringe rumor that will probably be shot down in like 2 seconds but there are people on twitter discussing Daniel Murphy and the Cubs. Joel Sherman did report a few mins ago that a team that was not the Yankees claimed Murphy but that’s it for legitimate news sources and obviousl...

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

heyward/darvish/chatwood is what, $300 million wasted? What a world. It actually makes me wonder if they have the stomach to even sign a Harper this offseason. I imagine what happens is theo pulls a boston and goes all in to sign Harper. if it works out he absolves himself from the horrid heyward, ...

Re: Monty to DL

Kinda surprised they are going with Chatwood starting tomorrow no matter what and not seeing how tonight plays out with bullpen usage before making a decision...... If Chavez isn’t needed tonight start him and try and cobble together 5-6 competent innings from him, De La Rosa, Randy, or even Cishek ...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Morrow and Darvish are throwing in the OF right now. The plan was for Morrow to go off a mound tomorrow, iirc, as of earlier this week. Hopefully that’s still the plan.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-17-18

Seeing Keegan Thompson going today made me think of the top prospect list over at Bleachernation. I normally don't read anything over there written by Luke Blaize, but had some time to kill (apologies Luke, if you post over here as well). It's pretty awful, IMO. 1. Miguel Amaya 2. Keegan Thompson 3...

Keith Law kills me, gawd. He just cannot take even the slightest hint of criticism, even if it's not remotely close to a direct swipe. Chuck: Was David Bote on any scouts radar as any kind of a prospect? Sure, it’s a SSS, but you have to love how he plays the game and what he brings offensively and...

Are those Google glasses developed enough that the homeplate ump could wear them and see the strike zone box/pitch trax? Or do we not trust the umps would call what the technology is showing them? There’s no reason to make it this complicated. Use the tracking system we have. If it’s a strike a gre...

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: 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...
