Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

If they were to add anyone with some velocity and the ability to pitch in the MLs next year, then this idea moves from “hmm” to something you do very quickly Agreed with you on Pazos. Liked him with the Yankees and believe he refined himself well with the Mariners. Big physical LH in the mold of Ju...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

I’d have given long and hard thought to trading Almora for Zunino Oh yeah. If we could’ve gotten Pazos back in it too with some other stuff going back (the always mentioned Vic, Maples, Short, etc type crowd) I definitely would’ve done it. If they were to add anyone with some velocity and the abili...

8:58pm: The Rays and Mariners are in agreement on the trade, tweets Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. The agreement is still pending medical reviews, so nothing is official just yet. 8:23pm: The Mariners and Rays are closing in on a trade that would send catcher Mike Zunino and outfielder Guillermo He...

Trading Zunino for CJ Cron sounds like something in DiPoto's wheelhouse.

Re: Cubs Picking Up Hamels Option, Trading Smyly to Rangers

I just picked up Maples' rookie card for 5 cents so yes I want to keep him around! I'd like to see him get more of a shot but realistically he'l post a 15 K/9 and 7 BB/9 in Iowa again and will be traded at some point to someone like the Marlins who can throw him in the pen and not care that his ERA ...

Re: Cubs Picking Up Hamels Option, Trading Smyly to Rangers

Was looking forward to Smyly in the pen this year, was a huge fan of the signing at the time.

That said, if we can get something interesting for him in December after the Rule 5, then sure. Anyone in the Texas system of note as a reasonable target? Maybe just get Lacy back? lol

Moore on a minor league deal would be ok.

Re: MLBTR FA Predictions

I like Cutch as a person and he's a fine player but that's a move for the sake of making a move. He doesn't add much to the offense and his defense is about on par with Shwarber's now.

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

I'm still really into the idea of dealing Chatwood and stuff to the Yanks for Gray. Gray's numbers were great everywhere except Yankee Stadium last year and the Yanks are pretty clearly ready to move on from him.

Now, whether they want Chatwood is another discussion....

I am not reading the whole thread bc I'm lazy but I would be in favor of bringing back Chavez and Wilson. Duensing and Kintzler and Chatwood need to be jettisoned into the sun. I liked what Mills brought and wouldn't be opposed to him being a pen option. Russell needs to go. If the Jays were able to...

Re: Allen Webster up, Morrow to 60-day DL

I've been wondering if they'd do this.

Quite a journey he's had. Once a top 50 prospect, traded to the Red Sox as part of that insane Crawford/Gonzalez/Beckett deal. Fell apart, pitched in Korea, now pitching mostly out of relief, he's regularly in the mid-90s.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Some housekeeping:

Jaime Garcia added to the 40 man, Zagunis put on 60 day DL to make room.

The Angels claimed Luke Farrell off waivers. We DFA'd Mazzoni and Zastryszny but they cleared waivers and were kept in the organization.

Re: Cubs likely to sign Jaime Garcia

He's been ass this year but has been good in the past and it can't hurt to have another lefty who isn't Brian Duensing/Randy Rosario.

Re: Cutch to Yankees

It's crazy to me that Cutch is still just 31.

Also before this, the Yanks were giving outfield innings to Shane Robinson and Neil Walker so I guess this counts as an upgrade.

Not sure what sucks more, Monty to the DL or Chatwood taking his start. I'd rather have Underwood or Mills get a spot 3 inning start. And Rosario has been ass recently. Would rather see someone else get the call up but our depth is dwindling. I almost expect another trade before the August 31 deadli...
