Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

I can see a "loading up for Bryce" approach to the off season this year possibly. Where we're very careful in adding multiple year deals. Its not sexy at all, but tons of depth..... Bring back Rivera at 1/3. That's it for the offense. Trade Caratini to Oakland for Daniel Mengden. Trade Alz...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

This horsefeathers is so horsefeathering awesome. Theo's already said he's saving money for next year. Bryce is exactly the type of splash Theo loves. And he's showing so many signs its impossible not to connect some dots....Yet, lots of the media seems intent on thinking he's going to be a Yankee. ...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

Orioles are supposedly after Almora. I put very little stock in this but it's slow. Anyways, outside of Gausman/Bundy there is no one I'd feel good about trading Almora for. http://www.12up.com/posts/5822867-report-orioles-express-interest-in-young-cubs-star?a_aid=40920 *looks at source and sees Se...

6-33 and counting, as Lauri finished with 3 points in the worst 24 minutes of his career.

Well, now that a lifetime ban is in the cards you can bet that it won’t be a common thing anymore. Eh, I'm honestly not that sure about that.

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

Yeah, probably the worst shooting game of the season for him. Didn't hit double digits until 2 minutes left. Did grab 14 boards though. Love that he's a pretty rounded player at 20. Finds a way to contribute. Dunn started, but went 5-14, with 4 boards, 6 assists, and 4 TO's. Gonna be some ups and do...

Re: International shenanigans in Atlanta?

So this is the closest I can find as far as an explanation of what the braves actually did. Did they basically just spend a ton more money than they were allowed under the CBA? What are some of the similar things that teams like the Cubs have likely done to circumvent the rules, but less "braz...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

Wow. This off-season just got a lot more interesting. With the deadlines to sign before January 15th in order to get a signing bonus on top of what the Braves gave you, it looks like we won't have to wait too long before we find out if the Cubs get any of these guys. I wonder if having only the mon...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

The players will have restrictions on their free agency. They will be eligible to sign with another club for another signing bonus beginning on Dec. 5 up until Jan. 15. After Jan. 15, the player is still allowed to sign but cannot receive an additional signing bonus. Only the amount of the signing ...

There's still plenty of unanswered questions in my mind, in regards to how to acquire these players....We can dip into our 2018-2019 budget and/or use what we've got left over currently......I wonder if you can mix and match? Use 300k from the 2017-2018 budget(since that's still our max and I'm unsu...

Longenhagen schmongenhagen, see that in 5 years I guess we'll see. But, Fujinami walked 6.9/9 this year, his K's dropped to 6.3/9 for 9.4/9 and he was even sent down to their minors this year at some point. Definite step backwards from a guy that wasn't known for having control or command to begin ...

I don't think anyone's actually necessary, outside of Alzolay and de la Cruz. My guess is Bote gets added with them.

Longenhagen says Fujinami is a reliever, when and if he comes over. Kikuchi is the best pitching prospect over there, after Ohtani, at this point.
