Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

In this scenario, I'd rather sign Bryce Harper for the same type of deal and team him with KB for three years and get the single draft pick for Bryant if he leaves. Heck, worst case, team them together for two seasons and trade KB for a lesser prospect package than you'd get now, but still a solid o...

Brisbee speculating Machado to the Cubs for 10/330 Based on trading Bryant though. I can see the “trade your elite third baseman for prospects and eat it to” logic, but I don’t like the idea of trading Bryant after what was by far his worst season, and I don’t like Machado over Bryant going forward...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

So nobody needs to give clicks. Theo literally said this about KB in the article ”Given what we're trying to accomplish, it would be virtually impossible to envision the deal that would make sense to move them. I just don't believe in untouchables. Why limit yourself?” So it was the old, player was...

3 years from now you're talking about essentially a different franchise. Bryant, Baez, Rizzo, Lester, Zobrist, Hendricks, Schwarber, Montgomery, Quintana, the whole bullpen sans Edwards, all at free agency. If anything Harper extends your window of competitiveness by having a star caliber player to...

Again, the Cubs aren't poor. But there is a huge difference between making two moves to essentially pay Cole Hamels $13 million for one year and signing somebody for $400 million plus over 14. "somebody" And that difference is more or less inconsequential unless you think Harper is bad(no...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

I realize we have a lot of young hitters, and that some might take a step forward this season after maybe taking a step back recently. But, man, those last two months scare the hell out of me. For that, I really hope we retool at least a bit. It’s all half assed, half measures if we only re-tool to...

Theo turned into Jim Hendry so slowly I didn't even notice it happening.


At least he got us that title before it happened.

Astros a decent salary dump trade partner? Package Quintana with a bad contract (or two)? Or maybe just Chatwood or Darvish straight up?

Hell, even if they don't sign Harper, I'd love for them to figure out ways to get Chatwood, Duensing and Kintzler off the team.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I also suppose that after another year of evaluation, maybe they just don't think Harper is worth that type of investment. Did the dude even break 2 WAR in 2018?

I happen to think he is worth it, but the Cubs don't care what we think.

Sharma in his latest article says that the payroll limit is 246, and that we chose to keep Hamels because Chatwood and Darvish were such busts.
