I'd think it's a lock a pitcher is happening, I just wonder of what caliber.

Santana for Salazar or Tehran I bet

Salazar would make a lot of sense for both sides.

I know he's a guard, but I'd love to trade down and get Quentin Nelson. He's going to be an All-Pro the minute he steps on the field.

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

As an ND fan, I think Hiestand was far away the best coach on that staff. Olin Kreutz was on the Score last week and said Hiestand was the best OL coach he's ever had. I think it's a great hire.

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

Cubswin11 wrote:The part I don’t get about the rumor that it could be Cobb and Cain is what is Almora/Happ traded for then? A RP? A SP or 2 that’s like 2-4 years away (horsefeathers that, TINSTAAPP).

Why would they have to be traded? Almora continues to crush lefties and Happ takes on the Zobrist role.

Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Fox Fired

I have no doubt that the Bears can find a good head coach on either side of the ball. I was always a big fan of Lovie as a HC. My preference for an offensive coach has more to do with the fact that I’d like to see Mitch stay in the same system for several years. I don’t think that happens with a def...

Nope. Mitch needs one offensive system to work under. Go with that guy as hc and you'll never lose him to a higher job.

Yep, this is the main reason I want an offensive-minded HC.

Re: FREE DA JERSEY - Week 15 Bears @ Lions, Saturday Afternoon for some reason 3:30 PM CT, NFL-N

Not at all. Just pointing out that the Bears have been bad for 25 years, and that even includes a 9-year stint of decent football. Also, the Bears shouldn't have fired Lovie. Lovie is pretty much John Fox The players had a lot of respect for Lovie and always played hard for him. And they typically ...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Theo won't blink an eye on 40 per on Harper, nor should he. The opt outs involved will allow for him to get even more cash too. Theo ain't even truly trying to hide this either. The key is keeping from hitting 245 mill next year and we'll be able to do that. If we miss on him though, who DO we spen...

Besides bullpen guys, I wonder what else we do if/when we sign Cobb. Might we still try to trade from the positional depth for another starter?

His talent as a hitter is nowhere near his talent as a pitcher. But I think he's been projected as a 4th outfielder/fringe starter type as a hitter.
