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

Honestly, we'll just have to agree to disagree. I don't look at Q and Schwarber as special value. Schwarber probably has the value of a top 50ish prospect, in my mind. And if I'm off, I think I'm on the high end. Q? I'd be surprised if we could get a top 100 for him. Top 100-150 lead guy, is what h...

What are some similar or better offers a WS contender can seriously consider? Dodgers - Verdugo then what? Yankees - I guess Torres is on the table if Machado is in the plans? Andujar? Who after that? Astros - Whitley and Tucker, but why would Houston go that far? Why would Cleveland want to make th...

I’d take Newcomb/Inciarte/Anderson easily over the Cubs’ offer there, but how many teams have that lying around? Are the Braves in a rush to add a 33 YO starter? I think the Cubs are way more likely to offer the proposed package than the Braves are.

Kluber is INSANELY good. The Indians, if they traded him, would receive an absolute HAUL. His last 5 seasons? Over 200 innings each year. 31 fWAR. Seriously, THIRTY ONE. 32.6 bWAR. I mean....... horsefeathers lol. The Indians can and would do much better than anything we've got to offer, that start...

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

Yeah if the assumption is Cleveland is looking for a trade that keeps them as good or better in a Kluber deal it would be tough to top this (if they’re looking for prospect packages then yeah they can do better than this, but they’re in a competitive window in the easiest division in MLB, they will...

Who says no? 1 of Schwarber/Happ, Q, Kintzler and a prospect (I’d include Adbert personally) for Kluber. Reasoning is the Indians are apparently strapped/not wanting to spend. They didn’t even offer Brantley the QO because they couldn’t fit that $ in if he accepted. Kluber is owed $1.5 million more...

There’s a fair amount of non-tender candidates liated on MLBTR that might make sense for the Cubs this offseason.

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...
