That said, I actually wonder if his own teammates hate him. He may be TOO much of a red ass to fit in. What did he do? Isn't he the guy that blocks home plate when someone pimps out a homer? Hates bat flips, all that stuff. Just super, super o!d school. Just that on a guy who otherwise perfectly fi...

Could Rockies look to trade Gray? Oct. 19: The Rockies' rotation was surprisingly a strength of the team in 2018, with Kyle Freeland and German Marquez enjoying breakout seasons, but Opening Day starter Jon Gray was a disappointment. Although he fanned 183 batters, Gray allowed more earned runs tha...

Re: Realistic Trade Targets

Castellanos isn’t a free agent till after 2020 unless I’m misreading Cots. Getting a RH power hitter to offset an all lefty outfield (assuming the Cubs sign Harper) is a great idea, but it would be easier to fill the gaping hole in the middle infield. Sign Kipnis after the Indians shockingly buyout...

Re: Realistic Trade Targets

As far as spending and the LT is concerned: Given where the Cubs are not just with the age and price of their core (by this I really mean Bryant) but also the whole media rights situation, I think the Cubs red line the LT for 2019. It’s in their best interest to max the value of all media rights as ...

Re: Realistic Trade Targets

I like Marwin Gonzalez. Can we sign him in any scenario?

Edit: Seems like he could get pretty expensive. Versatile switch hitter with nearly 7 rWAR the past two years on a WS winner. In FA that might get to 4/50+ pretty quickly

Re: Realistic Trade Targets

Castellanos makes some sense for us. But, he's a pure rental. And as a horrible defender too, I seriously doubt he's costing very much in trade...... Corner guys don't bring that much of a return, in general. He certainly wouldn't cost Schwarber or Happ. The problem though, in figuring out potentia...

Re: Realistic Trade Targets

I'm assuming Schwarber or Happ would be needed to trade for Castellanos? I'm not overly against the idea. Schwarber for him makes some sense for both teams. I’d do* Schwarber for Castellanos and Mize or Manning, not sure about the rest Note: Probably in what horsefeathering universe are the detroit...
