Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

I mean, this is the same org that doesn't bid on posted players, because they don't agree with the process and also the org that doesn't like selling off at mid season, because that's not the team fans bought tickets to see.... They waited a year too long to deal off Machado anyway. But, it doesn't ...

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

So what now? Is it as easy as just signing a starting pitcher and maybe grab another bullpen arm cheaply in January? I'm not necessarily thinking that's what we do..... As an FYI, we've got somewhere in the neighborhood of 37-40 mill available to spend, under the LT.(that's after insurances and pre ...

Re: The Alex Cobb Thread

Its Gordo, but he says in his latest article that Cobb's asking price is "about 20 mill per" and that he's heard the Cubs have cooled on him.

Re: Cubs Sign Reliever Steve Cishek

Yeah there's no real way to make Darvish and Harper work unless we're cool with all the penalties that come from being 40+ million over the cap or Heyward rebounds enough to opt out. Let's say Chili Davis pixie dust magically turns Heyward into a .290/.390/.500 guy next year (lmao) with still beyon...

Re: Cubs Sign Reliever Steve Cishek

Cishek is really solid and gives the pen a different look. He's a great compliment to Morrow. The pen looks pretty damn solid. My guess is they'll still add a guy like Duke or Logan, if they're cheap. Maybe Cedeno. I wouldn't mind a guy like Jared Hughes at all, at this point either. But figure they...

Re: Bullpen Options

Assuming its an oversight, since we've not signed a guy since Theo said we're still looking for at LEAST one more pen arm. But Rosenthal didn't mention us in his list of teams still shopping. At any rate, I can see us trading for our other guy. If not, maybe we're holding off until we know for sure...

Re: Smyly for the camera

Right now, we're sitting around 131.658, for the LT. Plus, you've got to add for the pre arbs and the 16 mill for insurances. Might as well say 152ish. Leaving us 45 mill, to grab a starter, a pen guy, and in season moves. Plus, a backup C, another pen arm, maybe a backup OFer, if we get the first ...

Re: Smyly for the camera

If we do still trade for a front line starter, or sign Cobb, Smyly may be a Monty replacement.

Re: Smyly for the camera

5 million towards the luxury tax this year to not really play a part on the team is non-trivial, but it most likely won't matter. Nice to stack some depth, I wonder if it implies anything about what they're planning for the last rotation spot. Yeah, I'm wondering if this means its a short term cont...

I hope he stays a Cub. He's a great 6th starter and I think we'll all love him forever. Hopefully, he's OK enough with his current role.

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

Olney says 3/27 on Reed, Heyman insinuated its not a done deal.

Assuming it is though, I'm OK with any of Nicasio, Cishek, McGee, or Kintzler. I'm figuring its Kintzler, but I'm fine with that.

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado (and he wants to go back to SS)

I thought we've had a couple breakdowns now of how the Yankees could be able to afford Machado after next season. Hell, almost EVERYONE will be gunning for him; dude's not staying in St. Louis if he goes there. It's the wastelands. Sorry I might have missed the discussions, my bad. Just seems incon...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

It won't happen because the Mets probably expect some sort of actual return. Personally, I'd like to add him. Because there's no way we'd go into the year counting on him. He'd just be depth.
