This is mostly just buying out his controlled years, right? So, I suppose for a pitcher who could throw his arm out, you take the locked in money.

Re: Rank the offseason moves

Becoming a more racist organization than the St. Louis Cardinals and their fans.

It has reached that level, right? I don't know the history of the Cardinals that much, so correct if I'm way wrong.

Both guys are only 26, and have been each worth approx. $236 million in about 7-ish seasons of play apiece. Free agency is fine.

So just to review, did some guy tell some other guy something he heard from a Brewers FO type, but that the guy couldn't say anything because his friend would get fired?

I haven't been paying attention to the Cards or their needs much, but couldn't it be Machado rather than Harper?

ETA: Oh, wait. Yeah, it's likely more about that extension brought up a few posts above.

It would be awesome if Yu is good to go this season. I've just assumed this whole time the injury will reoccur early in Spring Training and he will then get Tommy John.

I think they're hoping that when they accidentally get something right, they can parlay it into a real gig. That’s basically how Dierkes (spelling?) Got MLB Trade Rumors going I believe.

While I agree with the sarcastic sentiment here, Zobrist is old and crusty, and there’s no guarantee he’ll continue to get on base at a —— holy crap! He had a .378 OBP last year?!? Nevermind.

Good move for them. With his elite framing and their devil magic he improves them a ton since C was so weak for them last year. I would assume this is their one big spend, they will be at $120 mil with this move which has historically been as high as they go when they are competitive from the late ...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread AKA The Rickettssss take a dump on EVERYTHING

This has nothing to do with this topic, but I never realized how boring our offseason was after winning the World Series, probably because I wasn't paying attention and figured there was nothing needed any way.

But we traded Soler for Wade Davis. That was about it. I suppose we also signed Jon Jay.

Re: Phillies sign David Robertson

The Cubs are extremely poor. Add in the fact that Theo doesn't really give relievers a lot of years or big money, and there is zero chance of Kimbrell coming here. The Cubs are not extremely poor - they’re extravagantly rich. What they are is extremely cheap, and that’s a very different thing. Yeah...
