Re: Highest Upside Cubs Prospects

Gallardo sounds most impressive so him. Lots of good stuff has been said about him, especially the stuff about his approach and how the four seam plays up in the zone. Sounds like we got the IFA equivalent of a high profile/first round HS RHSP prospect. The upside ceiling potential to develop seems ...

Probably but the Reds are pretty close to having a good lineup once Senzel joins

Re: Winter Meetings

A’s are looking for a 2B. Zobrist makes sense if the Cubs want to do Machado + Harper* while still pinching pennies where they can

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

2019 will already be Bryce's 8th season. Just sayin'. Maybe they want a player that can be a red ass and the rest of the team can hate. Combine these two things, make it not seem like a bad thing, and that is how I have interpreted the need for leadership. The guys in their 20s all came up in this ...

Re: Cutch is not a Cub

Solid move for a solid player McCutchen’s a different player from his prime, duh, but still offers enough of everything to make a starting corner OF. Similar to Granderson with the Mets at 33-36 but one less year starting younger, more contact/OBP, and less raw power...Maybe a better comp is Markaki...

Until Syndergaard is actually traded I have zero belief the Mets are serious about moving him. This is all a part of the show as even the Mets aren’t that horsefeathers stupid

Harper and Machado with nothing else might put the payroll around...$275 million? $280? I thought it would be more This would be a record ML payroll but probably the second most anyone has gone over the LT. Crudely by 2022 they would be committed to ~$160, and are ~borderline on 2021’s $210 LT thre...
