Re: Cubs close to a deal with Steven Souza

Just 1 mil? Did PTR Jedi mind trick him into taking that?

Re: Mookie

The last report I saw sounded like it could be Betts for Wil Myers, Chris Paddack/Cal Quantrill and Josh Naylor and that would be pretty meh deal for the Sox.

Re: Cubs to sign Jeremy Jeffress

Eh, it's fine. Pretty cheap and if he is close to his 2018 numbers, it's a steal. Surprised it's a MLB deal though. And still bummed about no Strop.

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

Now that's a name I haven't thought about in a long time. The Blue Jays have reached a one-year agreement with right-hander Rafael Dolis, Scott Mitchell of TSN tweets. The deal includes a club option for 2021. Dolis is a client of Moye Sports Associates. The 32-year-old Dolis is now in position to r...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

Nico isn't gonna be on the bench. He's either starting or he's getting at bats in Iowa. Would guess if it's another infielder it's Hernan Perez or Robel. Maybe Short. If Hoerner makes the team, especially with that bench, I can see him making the starting line up a good amount just in a psuedo-Zobr...

Re: Cubs close to a deal with Steven Souza

And in case you were wondering how he'll fit on the 40 man:

The Cubs have outrighted southpaw CD Pelham after he cleared waivers, the team announced and MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian was among those to tweet.

Re: Cubs close to a deal with Steven Souza

I liked Souza as a buy-low candidate and he has a nice power-speed combo and passable defense. I guess this means no on Castellanos.

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

Looks like the talks are Wil Myers and a bunch of prospects but none of the Padres top five prospects and the hold up is how much the Red Sox want to pay of Myers' contract. Yeah, that doesn't make sense... SD doesn't have that deep a farm system that they can unload Wil Myers on Boston, get Mookie...

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

The Phillies have reached a minor-league deal with veteran infielder Neil Walker, according to MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand (via Twitter). There’s a big-league camp invite; other details remain unknown.


When we don't even have the money for Neil Walker.

Re: Marcell Ozuna to the Braves

I'd have to think Castellanos would take a one year deal similar to that at this point. And I'm bummed the Cubs probably won't even try.

That's pretty cool to have 3 top 100 prospects but I'm shocked that Amaya isn't there. He'd have to have just missed right?

The Cubs have minor-league deals lined up with southpaws Danny Hultzen and Rex Brothers as well as outfielder Noel Cuevas, per the latest minor-league deal log from Baseball America’s Chris Hilburn-Trenkle. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic had previously reported the Cuevas signing, via Twitter. Hultz...

Re: Cubs Acquire Travis Lakins From Red Sox for Cash/PTBNL

Another interesting low-cost add for the pen/Iowa shuttle. I know not all these guys will stick in the organization through April but it seems we have a ton of relievers to work through. Seems like Underwood is gonna have to have a lights-out spring or get DFA'd.

Re: Cubs Trade for Casey Sadler

So he either makes the team or gets put on waivers. Assuming he makes it, the pen is likely: Kimbrel, Ryan, Wick, Wieck, Mills/Chatwood, Tepera, Sadler, the Rule 5 guy? Yeah I think this is right, with Winkler probably being the next guy up if any of these guys have a tough spring. I forgot about W...

Re: Cubs sign Josh Phegley

He's not too bad for a third catcher. Not sure his defensive numbers but he has some pop. I imagine he's an upgrade from Taylor Davis as a baseball player (but not a camera starer)

Re: Cubs Trade for Casey Sadler

Just the thing to get Cubs Con fired up! Seriously though, not a bad addition. Very good walk numbers, decent K numbers in the minors. Sadler, 29, pitched to a stellar 2.14 ERA in 46.1 innings between the Rays and Dodgers in 2019. As might be expected, his peripherals hardly supported that level of ...
