Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

let's get the season going already. I need a new one of these https://www.facebook.com/CubsWinFlyTheW/videos/696963863813858/ This video continues to be the reason why I will forever be changed as a sports fan.

It actually was written about in November with quotes from his mother.

He was texting and driving at the time. It's so dangerous, but most of us have done it.

Re: Cubs acquire former top prospect Eddie Butler

This will probably turn out like Jacob Turner but maybe it will turn out like Jake Arrieta.

But then would we be getting him at the cost of a utility player?

I'm excited because the upside is that of a legit starter. The downside is the price of a scrub.

Re: Random Offseason Musings and Rumors

Right? Especially since they currently have 4 in the first 105 or so. So let them utilize all four and try to rebuild the system a little bit rather than just use one for a position that isn't even a need while also spending $18 million to do it. They can keep the pick and utilize it, or they can g...

The Cubs seem pretty good at drafting, so I'd rather keep the pick than use it to sign him for one year when the offense should be potent regardless.

Would rather spend the money on Ross and Holland and take a chance.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

After reading some of the most recent posts, I don't feel so bad now that I still get anxious just thinking about the final innings, let alone watching them. Feels tremendous that we won that. A loss would have been the perfect narrative for Cubs haters or story tellers, about how Joe Maddon's manag...

Re: We hit the luxury tax.....

Are you trying to tell me that you think KB, Russell, and Schwarber are going to get 12, 6, and 6 million respectively in arbitration their first year? No way that happens. Just for some additional context, Ryan Howard's $10 million is the record for first year arbitration. I could see Boras asking...

Re: Chapman to Yankees

That Maddon interview was a long interview, and he only acknowledged two mistakes. He didn't have a reliever up in game 6 in case the Cubs pushed the lead from 5 to even more. Am I remembering correctly that even after they took the big lead, the Cubs STILL didn't get somebody up right away? And I ...

Herrera is 24, 2 years service time, 4 war each year. Seems like a great deal.


Pretty sure Boras is Russell's agent so probably not him.

Re: Winter Meetings Thread (?)

What about resigning Travis Wood he checks off all the boxes and Joe clearly loves Travis. Although he also i...

Re: Cubs interested in Wade Davis, deal close?

Would anyone else object to offering Davis an shorter extension. Coming off injury he might be more likely to take it. Will be 32 next off season so he's not getting a Jansen/Chapman type offer. Assuming what he would likely get as a FA, he would be foolish to sell low. Hopefully, he stays healthy ...

Re: Cubs interested in Wade Davis, deal close?

The Cubs did nix a trade for Dan Haren because they weren't comfortable with the medicals. So if they sign off on Davis, I'm comfortable because they are comfortable.
