Re: Starting Pitching candidates

If a package of Happ, Caratini, Ademan (plus?) can bring back Teheran, one of their starting pitching prospects and AJ Minter, I'm down. I'd rather overpay for Cobb or Lynn (let's just take Yu and Jake out of the equation) or even bargain shop and bring in 2-3 of guys like Hellickson, Bucholz, Feld...

Someone on Twitter that tweets like they have a direct connection to the FO. I just ignored them at first but then some other Cubs fans/bloggers I follow interact with them like they were credible-ish.

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Someone show me a scenario where we sign Darvish and are still able to give $400m to Harper. Tricking Heyward into opting out is an acceptable scenario. Heyward is about to be caught up in a sexual harassment scandal that Theo will leak to the press. He will then do the honorable thing and opt out ...

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

Well our offseason is a complete diaasater. The Vaunted Brewers just signed Yovani Gallardo. We might as well just put a bow on the division and hand it over. I think Theo has lost his touch.

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

Don’t think we’d be in on Moore, even for a salary dump? https://twitter.com/johnsheahey/status/941818284055265281 It does have the Maddon-Hickey connection. Guess he’s going to the Rangers. I wouldn’t have minded it as a BOR flier, but good luck with him in the Ballpark of Arlington. Matt Moore is...

Re: Christian Yelich

Almora or Happ and Monty (if he wants to start/they need starters this year) then a minor leaguer or two (Alzolay, Ademan, Zagunis) get it done? I want Yelich bad. No. Almora AND Happ and Monty may be a start, but even that can get blown away by other teams. Two things: Yelich is better than Ozuna ...

Re: Marcell Ozuna Traded to the Cardinals

Milwaukee is still trash and they'll prove it by winning 77ish games this year. Maybe. Maybe not if they acquire Archer or Cole or someone like that. Regardless of their win total in 2018, they're still young and improving. They really aren't that young outside of Arcia, Hader and Philips/Brinson. ...

Re: Marcell Ozuna Traded to the Cardinals

I think this is good news generally. The Cards were always going to make a big move this winter, and in my opinion Ozuna is the least scary of the names they've been linked to. They took a big bite out of their depth to be 5 games back of us rather than 7. The obvious downside is if they're not don...

Re: Cubs Close to Signing Morrow

Good points I’m guessing the FO/coaching staff have similar thoughts and use ideas. That being said, go bring Wade back and go with super bullpen of death. Finish signing Morrow and Cobb, trade Happ for Hand, sign your backup C and OF of choice, go home happy. Have SD throw Carter Capps into that t...

Re: Where will Giancar-go?

I just want to add Stanton's dongs to our lineup, leave me alone about it, ok? Stanton is going to spend more time on the DL than he will be in the lineup over the course of the next three years. If he can't stay healthy when he's young, it's only going to get worse as he ages. He played 159 games ...

Re: Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood

Nothing wrong with this at all. My guess is our other guy is Ohtani or a guy we trade for. i'm not ruling out Cobb, but i kind of get the feeling there's a stronger market for him that pushes him beyond what the cubs are willing to commit to, so they jumped on Chatwood. And then, yeah, the other ro...
