Hm, re-reading it does seem like Bryant being traded would be the catalyst. Into the fodder pile it was already in anyway

Brisbee speculating Machado to the Cubs for 10/330 Based on trading Bryant though. I can see the “trade your elite third baseman for prospects and eat it to” logic, but I don’t like the idea of trading Bryant after what was by far his worst season, and I don’t like Machado over Bryant going forward...

Hoerner triples on a groundball down the 3rd base line...There was an interesting convo on his defense during the PA. They didn’t seem confident about him at SS (considered it more the Cubs testing/challenging his athleticism as is pretty standard) thanks to a maybe average arm and final word before...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

Clint Frazier is garbage I believe it, just really thirsty to not play Almora even though he makes alot of sense to keep if/when they land Harper. I even half believe Slappy might Whit Merrifield out an impact season for the Cubs next year if Harper is on the roster and Bryant is healthy (basically...

Yankees are chasing Paxton, which makes lots of sense for them.

As an aside, if the Yankees have no clear plans for Clint Frazier they can send him the Cubs’ way.

Some suggested pitcher reclamation projects with an eye on 2020+ impact, 2019 depth. Most aren’t actually available but whatever, this is going to be one long month and I’m already bored of what’s in the news. Anyway I am not including the more obvious names/usual suspects (J. Gray, S. Gray, Stroman...

Philadelphia is a dumpster* and I refuse to believe they have any serious shot at Harper. Take Heyward and like it!

I’d have given long and hard thought to trading Almora for Zunino Oh yeah. If we could’ve gotten Pazos back in it too with some other stuff going back (the always mentioned Vic, Maples, Short, etc type crowd) I definitely would’ve done it. If they were to add anyone with some velocity and the abili...

On the Gray multi inning thing - are they still viewing him as a SP for 2020+? They should! I am not against the idea of regrouping in the pen, that’s a quality way to break in a potential long term SP
