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

I think my no Harper offseason at this point would be: - Sign Tulo, catapult Russell out of town - Chatwood for Russell Martin - Sign Descalso for what Kinsler just got (2/8) - Grab Puig from the Dodgers - Use Almora and second tier prospects to bring in a high leverage reliever (lets say Kirby Yate...

horsefeathering Hendry/Tribune era offseason moves. Miss on Bryce and sign some washed up guy like Tulo https://twitter.com/jonheyman/status/1073765267501662208?s=21 Tulo costs the league minimum and lets us fire Russell into the sun. He would be a phenomenal signing. Other than being able to get r...

Re: Daniel Descalso

If they think he's still a viable backup SS, I quite like this. If they don't, I'm not sure he's much better than La Stella, certainly not enough to justify the increase in cost given that we're allegedly out of money. Considering he hasn't played SS regularly since 2016, I doubt they view him as mo...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Baseball offseasons are the stupidest offseasons in sports. Dombrowski mentioned adding an offseason deadline, and it's such a good idea I can't believe I've never heard it brought up before. It could probably only be a trade deadline, since there's almost no way you could do a FA deadline that did...

Dodgers are apparently shopping Puig hard. If Bryce is not happening I want him real bad.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I've always wondered how much a guy like Bryce Harper brings to a team in terms of additional revenue and how they go about trying to factor that in. Not a ton beyond the benefits of winning. Most revenue from merch and other stuff like that goes into one big league-wide pot. Because the Cubs are a...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Both MLB Network and ESPN2 just had Harper segments and the Cubs weren't mentioned once. Charles the cat must be hanging out in different, totally real Las Vegas lobbies than the national writers. The next rumor he gets right will be his first. Is everyone excited for Greg Maddux pitching coach tho...

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

Consider this scenario: The Cubs move Zobrist to a contender for some prospects. They then use that money to sign a top-tier reliever, bring in a contact hitter like Brantley or Markakis and then could still make a move to add an infielder via trade. And the prospects added via the Zobrist trade wo...

Re: Week 14: LA Rams at Bears Sunday Night on NBC

The Vikings are not going into Seattle and winning a game. Win one more game and it's over, and it would be soooooooo sweet if it came next week against the Packers.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I don't like the sounds of "professional hitter." Especially when coming from a guy like Ralph, that evokes some half measure horsefeathers like Lemahieu or McCutchen. Hard pass. My mind went to Jed Lowrie or Brantley Gross, though admittedly a little less than my names. In my mind, if th...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Bryce is coming to the cubs. It’s been in the works for months if not years. Theo is doing all this posturing to save like 1 million AAV and I love him for it. IF....the Cubs sign Harper - how in the hell do they re-sign Bryant? Between Harper and Heyride alone - thats projected to be $60M for 2 pl...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Darvish looks a lot dumber if it really did take us out of Harper range. And Cole! I like Cole and think he'll be solid but spending $20 million with this supposed tight budget doesn't seem like a great use of resources. And Kintzler. Cole and Kintzler are moves they made late enough in the game th...

The long and short of it is that all of our beat writers except Sharma are morons, and Sharma's not a big time inside sources guy. If Passan/Rosenthal say something, give it some weight, otherwise it's either nonsense or coming from someone who puts out enough nonsense that you can't really say what...

Re: Goldschmidt to Cardinals

The Cards were always going to make a big move on offense. This sucks, though it fortunately sucks way less than them getting a comparable player in Donaldson for only money or them getting much better players in Harper/Machado.

I expect them to end up with Kimbrel as well.

They're totally going to spend $30m on Hamels, a reliever, and a backup catcher and then try and tell us with a straight face that they didn't have the money for Bryce, aren't they?
