He's made it his mission to trade every prospect in his farm system to finally land a 5th starter.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

The main reason I see this as a good avenue is that, well, we aren't getting a good cost-controlled arm. We'd have to include MLB pieces, and Theo isn't doing that (outside of maybe Almora). We aren't backing into one of those guys, either. Either the A's get good value for Gray or they wait until t...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

You never know. The Dodgers are sniffing around at Gerrit Cole and Julio Teheran. Maybe they just stay out of the bidding completely, opting for a guy with control. The Astros have been linked to Sonny Gray a lot. Maybe these other top teams just head in different directions. And is a team like the...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

It really seems like a Theo-type shocker move, too. Just go all out on the rotation. And, with Quintana already in hand, you aren't worried as much about trading for another cost-controlled guy. Use what we have on the farm to get the best player we can. We aren't getting another good cost-controlle...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-20-17

In 11 games since being moved back to South Bend, Wilson is hitting .310/.370/.595 with 3 homers and a 14.9% K% in 47 PA.

That's after hitting 3 homers in 8 AZL ABs.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I really like how the pitching match-ups lineup the rest of this month. The Pirates still have Cole and Taillon to go against the Brewers, then send Trevor Williams and Chad Kuhl into Coors. The Brewers then face Nola, Eikoff, and Hellickson in Philly without Jimmy Nelson -- which at least gives the...

Yeah, it allows Quintana to avoid facing his former team and it makes the Brewers face a guy they are unfamiliar with.
