Miguel Amaya, C, Chicago Cubs (Low-A): One scout said he’s the best player in the Midwest League. Another said he’s one of the five best catching prospects in baseball. For ...

By the way, our 2nd pick should be coming after the FIRST round. It looks likevweve got a great shot at getting TWO comp picks after the 1st Round. All that needs to happen is for Jake and Wade to each sign for over 50 mill. If not, we receive picks after the 2nd for them. Davell, I'm not sure the ...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

How do we get Dave Cameron into the GM's chair in Seattle: JC: Happ for James Paxton. Who says no? Dave Cameron: Probably the Mariners, just because they already don’t have enough pitching and have okay options at 2B/OF. But Cubs might not want to turn Happ into a guy who can’t stay healthy either....

Re: Starting Pitching Options FA 2018

One of the guys at MLBTR was estimating contracts in his chat and mentioned Lynn at 4/60, Cobb around 4/48, and Chatwood on an Ivan Nova(3-26) type of deal, then mentioned he's the one guy there that thinks he'll get a 3rd year. If THOSE are the numbers, Chatwood at 3/26 is a no-brainer. I'm happy ...

Rosenthal also just tweeted backing up Morosi that Cubs indeed are pursuing Gray

In addition to possibly Happ or Almora, I wonder if Beane believes in Montgomery as a starter and would want him as return piece?

He was 92-95 and touched 96, as he was the last two times I saw him, and again struggled to find the strike zone. When he did, he was untouchable. He threw the b...

SSR, what's Ainge doing? You think you want Jackson? Or is this their way of trading for George or Butler? I'm guessing both. Use the Philly future pick with some assets to try to get George or Butler. I wasn't crazy about Fultz (though Jackson doesn't do a lot for me either) so unless there's craz...
