Re: Cubs Sign Reliever Steve Cishek

if he does what David threw out there for the next two seasons, i could see him opting out after ‘19. But even then I wouldn’t bet on it. After one year of that level of production, no way.

Re: Cubs Sign Reliever Steve Cishek

Morrow Cishek Edwards Wilson Montgomery Strop Maples/Alvarez/Tseng/Grimm Looks alright. It'd still be nice to add another piece, but I agree that Davis/Reed look pretty unlikely. I could maybe see a Watson-level signing. More likely, this is what we're rolling with. Maples and/or Wilson stepping up ...

Re: Cubs Sign Reliever Steve Cishek

so this guy seems to fill the same role kintzler would have--heavy groundball pitcher--but with much more swing and miss? i like it.

Re: Bullpen Options

For a closer, I want elite performance, not good performance. I'd be happy to have him in a middle relief role, just not the highest leverage innings. Oh, I wouldn't at all want him closing, but he's plenty fine as another guy in the mix. Morrow would almost surely get the nod over him at least. An...

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

Out of curiosity why is Kipnis a bad pickup if its a buy low type of thing? He was bad last year but was a nearly 5 win player in both 2015 and 2016, only 30 and a relatively ok contract the next 2 seasons. I know we don't really need an OF, but he's not someone I could completely avoid acquiring i...

100% agree. but it's starting to feel that way.


is Reed supposed to be close to signing with someone or something?


No, I just haven’t heard him connected to the Cubs in the last couple days. A Reed + Morrow offseason for the bullpen would be excellent.

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

Baez or Russell to the Padres only seems to make sense to me if there’s a second move following that up, such as a trade with the Rays or Jays for Archer or Stroman. I'm a little slow, but I'm not following. How does trading away a middle infielder make more sense if followed up by a trade for a st...

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

well if the cubs are going to trade baez or russell to SD, i suppose i'd be cool with Machado as a replacement.
