Re: It turns out the real Yu Darvish was the friends we made in this thre

Levine just said on The Score he’s heard and doesn’t think any SP had a deal for more than $22 million AAV and that if 5/125 was out there for Darvish he’d jump at it and he doesn’t think that (or anything around that high) has been offered yet. FWIW If that’s true, Jesus horsefeathering Christ get...

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

Assuming Twins and Astros out on Darvish, we are competing with Dodgers and Yankees; an unenviable financial position. If the luxury tax is so punishing, how can they be in at all? There is no indication the Twins are out on Darvish. I would say they are the biggest competition for the Cubs if Darv...

Re: Cubs arbitration eligibles

Great breakdown. I thought insurance was 15 mill last year? Maybe I'm off on that though. I thought the rest of the 40 man comes in at 200k apiece, not 100% sure on that either. But, if I'm correct, it'd shave another 2.5 off the 35.9 we can spend. Of course, we can make most of it by cutting Grimm...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

Apparently this was said during Sat morning baseball show on score: https://twitter.com/thecubsreporter/status/949694680513597441 I honestly doubt Levine said this. I think if this were true he would have put it on his Twitter or something. I Wouldn’t be surprised if the guy who claims he heard thi...

Re: Wade Davis Signs with the Rockies, 3/$52 M

Whoops. I got mixed up with the mention of the other names. I don't really like Cobb at all as his AAV creeps toward Darvish's. If he's as cheap as we were talking before, then whatever. Personally, I don't think their AAV's wind up THAT close. My guess at this point is 4/70 on Cobb and 5/140 for Y...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

In an ideal world I prefer the trade route for acquiring the next Cubs starting pitcher, but if it were Darvish, how high would you be willing to go to get him? 5 years at 25 million per? 4 years at 28 per? 6 at 22? More? Not what you would ideally (and realistically) hope to sign him for but what ...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Im not taking one side ornthe other, just asking: how much more is Jake gonna get than Darvish? Is Darvish over Jake the right choice? I am not sure Jake is going to get more than Darvish but i think Jake has not given signs of coming down from his asking price and Darvish may have. That is why the...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

Altman interprets a decision before Christmas, via translation. Brett interprets after Christmas. Any ideas here? I know that horsefeathers is funny, but is it remotely understandable to anyone? Darvish tweeted a couple of times after that report came out and said he won’t make a decision before Ch...
