Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

The same reason they traded one for Davis. Yea but Happ >>>>> Soler Happ this year is greater than Soler by a decent amount. This year's Happ versus last year's Soler is a lot closer debate than some may think. I think this year's Happ is ahead, but it's not by that much to make a discussion about ...

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...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Not that 3rd place in ROY voting matters, but I don't understand all the votes for Bell. Happ, Marquez, and Hoskins were all better.

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

Probably just Stroman but as I’ve made clear I’d rather go a different route and keep Russell. I hate the idea of trading Russell or Schwarber who seem very likely to increase their value this season. Happ and Baez seem about as high as their value is going to get. I’d like to trade one of them (pr...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

It's pretty obvious the top 3 on that list, especially right now, are basically interchangeable. so griping about which of them is technically #1 is REALLY splitting some hairs. I don't consider the Dodgers interchangeable with the Indians. It's ridiculous to think that the Cubs' pitching situation...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

He simply stated the Cubs have to replace 2 guys in the starting rotation, which they do. Pointing out Lester's age and how their starting rotation situation can, ominously, turn into a liability relatively quickly doesn't seem like too crazy a stretch. Being ranked #8 isn't some kind of crazy slap...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

You have to love the power rankings piece for 2018 before any moves are made. Cubs are 8th. “Look, they should be good again, and maybe even better. That young foundation of position players remains, but while Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo were great in 2017, Addison Russell and Javier Baez didn't ...

Something awesome I just stumbled upon while doinking around on baseball-reference: Mike Fontenot had the 4th highest WAR on the 2008 Cubs. Right behind Ted Lilly.

Re: The Cardinals

I saw a lot of Cardinals fans wishing the Dodgers luck on Twitter last night, and I realized that that’s their life now, rooting for the teams the Cubs are playing in the playoffs. It was a satisfying feeling.

Re: Cubs Acquire Justin Wilson & Alex Avila for Candelario, Paredes & PTBNL/Cash

I love imagining the 3D chess board in their minds as they celebrate the Cubs no longer having Candelario (who was never going to play for the Cubs and also isn't very good) and Paredes (who would be blocked until 2022 by a 23yo SS who has already been worth 10 WAR, and also was just replaced on the...

Re: Cubs Acquire Justin Wilson & Alex Avila for Candelario, Paredes & PTBNL/Cash

Tbf, Brewers fans make a good point about the adverse long term effects of Cubs players hands being weighed down with multiple WS rings. Wrist injuries just waiting to happen, 2026 is Brewer time.

Would be nice to get it done without Paredes, but I understand other teams like good players, too. I feel nothing for Candelario.

Re: Cubs trade Eloy, Cease, others for Quintana

He is a good #3. The Cubs gave up at top 3 prospect in the game for a guy that has underwhelmed this season until recently. Watch him pitch and tell me he is an ace...its just not there. Who will argue that? I don't think it's unreasonable to think the Cubs gave up too much, but your argument gets ...

Seems like a good trade. I'll like it more after this season when we get the garbage out of our rotation and sign another TOR pitcher.
