Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

I would much rather give Cobb 4/60 then Darvish 7/175. Huge pass on that.

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

I am tired of the Yu pursuit. Give him a deadline and if he doesn't make a decision by then time to move onto either Arrieta or Cobb.

Re: Bullpen Options

Duensing was good last year plus that's not a lot of money so I am totally fine with this deal. I might have went for someone with a little more upside but if they are saving cash for Darvish and or Harper than it makes sense.

Re: Wade Davis Signs with the Rockies, 3/$52 M

I wanted Davis back but that's a lot of money so I don't blame the Cubs for not wanting to give that to him. Still plenty of good options left for us.

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

At this point (minus a Yelich trade), I'm resigned to them signing Darvish and a couple of relievers and calling it an off-season. Let the progression/regression of Schwarber and Heyward as well as Russell and Baez determine whether Harper or Machado is a bigger need next off-season. Signing Darvis...

Re: Cubs Sign Reliever Steve Cishek

Morrow Cishek Edwards Wilson Montgomery Strop Maples/Alvarez/Tseng/Grimm Looks alright. It'd still be nice to add another piece, but I agree that Davis/Reed look pretty unlikely. I could maybe see a Watson-level signing. More likely, this is what we're rolling with. Maples and/or Wilson stepping up...

As long as we are still in on Reed or Davis or a top trade target then I am fine with this.

Re: John Mallee

If anything, go hire Terry Pendleton as assistant hitting coach and assign him purely to Heyward (Pendleton was the hitting coach his rookie year). I thought about suggesting something like this, but don't we already have a assistant hitting coach and Maddon helping too? If we hired another, I'm wo...
