Who gets traded in the offseason?

Obviously guys like Almora and Russell should be dealt but I’m not counting those as major deals to shake up the roster. Of the big names, who’s most likely to go? I think it’s Schwarber but I’m on the trade KB train.

Re: Baez Hairline fracture of his left thumb

Bote needs to become the regular shortstop. Trotting Russell out there as anything but a late-inning defensive replacement is active self-sabotage as far as I’m concerned.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Javy broken thumb. Playoff hopes might rest on Joe’s insistence to play Russell.

Dumb luck that Lester isn’t going there too. Oh well, free Adbert, I guess.

Re: ChiCargo Cubs - AKA that bad man can't hurt you anymore

Meh, he most likely sucks but he still put up okay numbers vs RHP last year (believe over .800 OPS though don’t know how much that’s Coors related). If he plays 2-3 times a week vs RHP maybe he’s productive. He’s likely taking Descalso/Bote/Almora ABs away vs RHP, the bar ain’t that high. Almora an...

I remember Blanco making a ridiculous defensive play against the Mets. He extended his big league career on his glove alone.

Considering Zobrist owns the biggest hit in the history of the franchise, I don't think it's that dorky of a pick.

Are you... Are you mad at a hurricane? Man, this has taken your weather vendetta to new extremes. When this has happened previously they've moved these games to neutral ground...I think that's the bone of contention here. That's how Zambrano ended up with a no-no against the Astros in Milwaukee.

Re: Is this 1969 All Over Again?

Even an irrational meatball such as myself realizes this was our first series loss in a few weeks... unfortunate that it had to be a sweep. This slide would have to last another 1.5-2 weeks to be considered a collapse, and the 2nd half Cubs have inspired enough confidence to believe that's not going...

There's an 8 disc set that has all 7 games of the ws and game 6 of the nlcs. https://www.amazon.com/Chicago-Cubs-World-Collectors-Blu-ray/dp/B01LRCDYSY
