Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

That's not really saying much. The guys currently signed for 2020 + arb guys would be top 3, with a shot at 1 depending on how serious the Yankees and Red Sox are at resetting their tax penalties. Yeah, it's saying essentially nothing. All he's saying is that we're not outright slashing payroll, wh...

Re: Addison Russell

does this have nothing to do with getting Hoerner eligible for playoffs? It appears that was probably the main reason. A player who doesn't meet said criteria for postseason eligibility can still be added to a team's roster in the postseason via petition to the Commissioner's Office if the player w...

Cam didn't practice today and is day-to-day, apparently he aggravated his foot Thursday.

Maybe there will soon be a new entrant in the Tua Tagavailoa derby.

Re: It's Maddoning

He just seems like the kind of guy that is going to heavily (Dusty level) favor some players over others, and not necessarily based on talent. I base this solely on the ~100 or so words I've heard him speak. My main concern with him is that he is way to buddy buddy with Rizzo and Lester. Would Ross...

How does Ross come off on commentary does he fly the huge red flags that Sandberg did in his Yahoo articles? I still think it takes an offer he can't refuse to go back to a full time baseball schedule, and I'm skeptical that offer would come. I haven't listened to much of Ross, but when I have, he'...

Re: Cubs suck and we were always right to hate them (2019 negativity thread)

I just went back through the thread from the Cubs getting Davis and I forgot how many people were at best lukewarm on that deal, although a lot of that came from health concerns that we were fortunate enough to largely avoid. TT made a comment about not liking to pay $10 million for a year of a clos...

Re: Cubs suck and we were always right to hate them (2019 negativity thread)

Remember, everything that worked out is good on its face, and everything bad made sense at the time so how can you criticize them now? Trading a surplus outfielder for a badass closer is what teams in contention windows do. It sucks that Soler went on to hit 40 HRs, but as has already been pointed ...

If anyone can give me some info that Theo could've gotten Chapman without trading Gleyber, then I will begin shredding him for giving up Gleyber. Until then I can't and won't. I'm also not gonna fault him for the Soler/Davis trade. It made perfect sense to use a surplus guy with no everyday spot to ...
