Re: 2019 Bold Prediction Time

Trying to stick to bold: Zobrist can’t say healthy. Bote leads team in 2B starts and puts up a .800 ops with 18 homers Darvish wins 17 games with a sub 3 era Bryant hits 40 Schwarber, Rizzo and Javy hit 30 Almora becomes strictly bench after Happ has a huge April/May Contreras bounces back slightly ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I still think Cubs end up with Harper. However I think the market for free agents was predictable. If they get him it will be at a bit of a discount compared to expected contract value. There has been a lot of narrative about Epstein being blindsided by budgets and the Rickets interviews. I don’t th...

Who cares about all of this. Give the cubs $$$ to sign Harper, I’ll watch them on Univision! What is the perceived negative connotation about Univision to which you are referring? He made no reference to any connotation whatsoever. He’s saying, “I don’t care what network they are on if it provides ...

Bernstei is the first person I I remember mentioning the Cubs having interest in Brandon Morrow. So he has some cridibikty, here He is not a guy that floats a lot of rumors either way... but yes he did say they had interest in Morrow last year.

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado - (Cubs in talks per Levine)

I'm fine with Machado in this scenario.

Happ + Alzolay for Machado
Javy or Russell for Yelich

That's the only way I see Machado making sense.

Yelich
Bryant
Rizzo
Machado
Contreras
schwarber/zobrist
Javy/Russell(whoever is kept)
Heyward/Almora

That lineup is insanity

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

I still agree Cobb is the main target. at this point I'd like to add him or Salazar. I also hope think Avila comes back. I could see Contreras getting an extra day here and there to keep him fresh and Avila is a perfect back up. Trying to figure out the Phillies I wonder if Eickhoff is available. I ...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

Price is intriguing.

I'd love to find a way to move a Heyward in a deal with a Price.

I really want Yelich or Benintendi at the top of the Cubs lineup for the next several years. I love Betts but I can't see the Sox moving him.

Re: Chapman

From a baseball perspective this is a huge addition at a huge cost. I'm expecting a few more follow up moves as other than Warren there still is not an answer to the crowded outfield roster the Cubs.

Either way it is what it is, huge addition to the team. We will see what else goes down this week.

With Maddon's relationship and Bosio I just have a weird feeing the Cubs are going to pry Archer from the Rays. What does it take?

Re: Reminder: Cubs are on 30 Clubs in 30 Days tonight (3/5) on MLB Network

I'm cautiously optimistic that Brothers makes the team and returns to his form a couple of years ago. If that happens I don't see how this bullpen is not one of the best in baseball again.
