Re: 2020 roster

And saying that, it certainly seems like we're making a couple minor trades in the next two weeks to lessen that 40 man crunch. So Mekkes and Giambrone or similar players on the cusp could be sent away for lottery tickets.

Re: 2020 roster

Yeah if we don't roster Mekkes, someone like the Marlins or Orioles will definitely take him. I do believe he could be a good relief option as early as this season. And Giambrone would definitely get taken as well if he isn't rostered. Also I can see why Theo is attached to Almora, he's a cheap CF o...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

No cubs rexeived any MVP votes but Kevin Pillar got one (!!!?!!!). When was the last year no Cub received a vote for any award because that's what happened this year. 2013?

Re: 2020 roster

Isn't d'Arnaud a terrible framer or did I make that up? If we're insisting on trading Willy then plan A has to be Grandal and plan B a Caratini/Jason Castro split. I like Castro quite a bit if we go that route.

Re: Minor League Musings

Glad they got re-signed. Hoping Black and Hagerty make it. Burks should be good CF depth at some point. And I still have hopes de la Cruz becomes an interesting reliever for us.

Re: Modern Era (Vets Committee) Ballot

I still can't get over Whitaker not being in. I think this rights that wrong. Also Simmons and Munson have to go in. You can't have a list of the best catchers of the last 50 years without them.

BUT the Cubs were tied to Teheran forever so we have to sign him to fulfill the near decade-long destiny.

Re: 2020 roster

For the record, I was by the bullpen during the Phillies series in Philly and asked Strop if he's coming back next season and he aggressively nodded "yes" so there you have it.

Re: 2020 roster

Along with Cesar Hernandez, Jonathan Villar is another second base candidate I wouldn't mind. Both could be non-tendered due to their projected arb price tags around 9-10 mil.

Fiiiiiiine. Do you think a stipulation is Ross has to hire someone with experience as bench coach? I feel like he wouldn't get total say in his assistants.

Re: 2020 roster

If the Phillies don't Non-tender Hernandez, a swap of him for Chatwood makes a lot of sense for both teams. I know it's been mentioned before. I just feel like bringing it up again.

Russell as good as gone. I feel like there's a deal to be had in which we send Almora to someone for a useful reliever.

Re: 2020 roster

How shortsighted/dumb would it be to let Mills and Alzolay battle it out for the 5th spot? I like what they both bring to the table. Or should we allow them to do the same for the long-relief role. I honestly thing they'd be better options for 5 than Chatwood, who seems to thrive in a LR role.

Re: 2020 roster

Do we still have Tony Kemp under contract? Rather DFA Descalso and keep Kemp.

Q is still an affordable rotation option. Would depend on the reliever we're getting back.

Thanks for everything, Joe. The Cubs won a World Series. Some people forget that.

Does an Almora+ for Jackie Bradley trade do anything for anyone? I've liked JBJ awhile, Sox trying to trim some salary.

Re: 2020 roster

I do think there's something there with the Phillies. They need pitching badly and have expendable position players. I really do think a Chatwood for Hernandez deal makes sense with others involved. Pivetta wasn't that good this year. I'd rather have Eflin if any of them but I don't think they give ...
