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...

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

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...

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

There’s a fair amount of non-tender candidates liated on MLBTR that might make sense for the Cubs this offseason. I wouldn’t dare look at numbers at this ungodly hour so the bold are names that more ring a bell. If there’s anything written by me next to their name it’s because I am already defensive...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I was flipping through Soccernomics by Simon Kuper and Stefan Szymanski and found a really interesting part. Apparently in the early 2000’s one club (AC Milan) funded an in-house medical outfit that found, by studying a player’s jump it “could predict with 70% accuracy whether he would get injured s...

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.

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.

I’d have given long and hard thought to trading Almora for Zunino Oh yeah.
