Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

So Russell is getting non tendered. Sure, the Cubs will attempt to move him. But, it would have been a limited market before this stuff. Non-existent market now, some team will scavenge around and sign him late in the off season most likely, unfortunately might even get a bargain, based on what his ...

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

Honest reasons to like Alzolay.....

Mid 90's FB with movement thats a plus pitch. Curve flashes plus, although its usually average. Change is improving, might be average by now. Works very fast, hard to get in a rhythm against. Seems to be a very high makeup guy.

Re: It's Maddoning

Yeah, being spoiled is awesome. I definitely have some issues with how Joe uses the pen, but not nearly to the point I'd want him gone or anything. And if I did, it wouldn't matter anyway, because he's not going anywhere. But yeah, I'd suspect our 4 star Yelp doctor and staff are history after the s...

Re: Addison Russell

We've still got the middle infield covered. we do? Javy at SS, with Zobrist, Bote, and I guess Happ can still technically field well enough for a few starts here and there. If need be, you can probably find a cheap backup type too. Seal Boy too. Yeah, if he nets us a decent, cheap pen arm, get rid ...

I think he winds up like a Tannehill or someone. Basically decent. Which wasn't worth anything close to using a pick that high on him.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Yeah, but his value now isn't because he became a better defender than Russell; nobody called what actually happened. The idea that he would click was basically hinged on the idea that he's an excellent defender with a ton of pop; if he can just figure out some patience, lay off some of the garbage...

Nope. Sulley was wrong as horsefeathers. I'm here for the inevitable back tracking on Trubisky.


You weren’t a fan of him?


I wasn't in favor of taking a QB there at all. And no, while I hope for the best, I wasn't a fan of his coming out of college.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

My rule of thumb is that when you have to say "We don't have any great guys, but we have a ton of them, so someone is sure to turn out OK," your organizational pitching sucks. Guys who don't look amazing but could potentially figure it out are a dime a dozen. You can always fill up your m...

I think there's more to all of this..... They've developed surplus positional guys. We've got the ability to.still trade from them to add a high end starter. They've also gotten a very solid group of non-exciting, but productive guys at the upper levels now. Most will get shelled, like Tseng did. Bu...

I'm not really concerned with Marquez' body. He's young, he'll get put on a nutrition plan, or if he's on one already, it'll be monitored closely. My honest guess is he'll come to ST looking chiseled. He IS our best hope at a TOR type arm. But, I'd sacrifice a bit of velo for more movement personall...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

We need at least one starting pitcher. A good one, at that. We need multiple relief arms. And I think.we need a backup C, that's defensive minded. That's what I think we actually NEED. But, adding a superstar bat, allows us tradeable equity we currently don't have and is our best shot at getting bet...
