They think Pham is the second coming of Jesus. Ozuna/Pham/Dexter is their OF

Dexter’s arm in CF was weak and can only be worse in RF.

Re: Starting Pitching candidates

Also, I'll regret trading Eloy if (and only if) he actually turns into something. Eloy is gonna be a stud and it’ll be regrettable if Q is a 4/5 and doesn’t stay healthy. How do the Cubs have Quintana for “twice as long”? What if Eloy is somehow a stud 3-5 years from now, but Q pitched like he norm...

Good thing he's never been a 4/5 nor had health issues


yeah, what?

I’m saying if he has a bad couple of years and breaks down (as many pitchers do).

General Cubs Chit-Chat

I always go back to the Lieber CG game, 78 pitches, facing the minimum 27 as an underrated game.

Re: The Alex Cobb Thread

How many teams, regardless of the pitcher, are interested in giving out a 17+ million AAV to a SP this offseason? The Cubs and Twins seem like the only teams really interested in playing in those waters, with Houston, Texas, St. Louis, and Milwaukee playing coy about it. And those maybe teams are p...

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

Machado to the WS and then they flip him to the Yankees, per NY Daily. As Angelos wouldn’t want to deal him to the Yankees directly.

If Machado wants to play SS, Anderson then has got to go to 2nd.

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

My ideal scenario: Tampa buys into Happ being at least a league average defender at second base. In which case, he's a 30+ hr guy with plate discipline, speed and solid defense. That's the beginning of a good package for Archer. We round that out with Caratini, De La Cruz and Albertos. Our rotation...

Re: Where will Giancar-go?

This calls for a 3 way deal. As long as Stanton gets to his desired destination, a 3 way might work best.

Re: Where will Giancar-go?

My god, him in the line up would be sick. That contract becomes an albatross in the last 5 years ($140M - $150M). That’s a lot of jack for what could be some unproductive years.
