Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

It's funny that everyone just assumes the Cubs are some cash cow for the Ricketts family that throws off tons of cash on a yearly basis directly into their pockets. It would be very surprising if that was even remotely the reality. With that said, sign Harper.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I just can’t bring myself to believe that the Cubs won’t be in on Harper and Machado. I mean, sure, there’s a strong possibility they get neither. But all these reports read like they’re not even going to really try. And afte the way the season ended, that would be flat out negligent. It’s worse th...

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

Given the way that the game is changing, I'd pass on Hamels. He was great this year, but I'd rather spend every available dollar on Harper and the bullpen. Smyly/Montgomery is fine for the regular season. I'd look to add 3-4 legit pen arms, with Morrow being the only guy I'd definitely bring back.

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

Thank god for Hamels. If our 4 remaining starters pitch close to where they did in their last starts the Cubs will be fine in the playoffs. Two things I keep telling myself: 1. Outside of the Dodgers, none of the other NL contender offenses are very good. And the Cubs are right with the Dodgers in ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-31-18

Healthy arms don't generally lose velocity at all during a player's late teens and early 20's. Huh? A prep player that is throwing 94 at 18, will in the vast majority of cases, still be throwing 94 as a 21 year old as long as his arm has been healthy. There have been some studies showing this. The ...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

It's hard for me to to commit to trading for a starter without any information on Darvish's health status. If they trade for a starter, that's telling me that Yu isn't coming back this year. But if they expect Darvish to be healthy for October, I don't see a lot out there in the mid-tier section (i...

I'm just glad it appears we're very serious about adding a starter. It seemed like we were concentrating too much on relievers, based on some of the articles.
