Thanks.

They have certainly been hot on his trail recently. I’d love it.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Not adding Giminez keeps the 40 man at 39, right? Maybe they are considering a late addition?

Re: Offseason Transactions

The Cardinals signing Bud “too many foreign players in MLB” Norris right after the Cubs signing Darvish is just to easy to even make jokes about. No it’s not.

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

FanGraphs saying the Cubs need Darvish makes me really care less about signing Darvish. Did anyone happen to catch the first posting of that article? The author wrote that the Cubs failed to advance past the Nationals in the NLDS in 2017, leaving them at two NLCS appearances in the last 3 years. It...

Re: Cubs Close to Signing Morrow for 2 Years + Option

Rosenthal says its 2 years and 21 million (9 million in 2018 and 2019).

3 million buyout or 12 million vesting option for 2020.

Re: Cubs Close to Signing Morrow for 2 Years + Option

Cobb does seem inevitable at this point. Assuming he signs, they would be in a pretty good spot to sit back and see what comes their way either through free agency or trade. I’d agree the bullpen needs another piece, and at this point my preference would be someone who could fill that 9th inning rol...

Re: Cubs Close to Signing Morrow for 2 Years + Option

Considering the concerns on Morrow’s workload, is it crazy to think they still look to acquire a closer and keep Morrow out of that role?

Re: Cubs Close to Signing Morrow for 2 Years + Option

Can we all just appreciate how amazing it must be to be a reliever in professional baseball these days?

Morrow had a 7.00+ ERA, 1.5 WHIP, and gave up more than 11 hits per nine in AAA....last year.

Re: Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood for 3/$38M

For every positive thing I find (statcast data, GB rate) there is something that offsets it (walk rate, strikeout rate). But, that is probably true for every 5th starter in the league. Can’t really say if I like it, but I don’t hate it. How’s that for analysis? I trust the research and analysis capa...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I was pleased with his .480 SLG, finished just short of an .800 OPS. I didn’t think anything was egregious, but I think his 2017 offensive season was better than 2016. I think he was destined to slide some defensively after having such a crazy 2016 with the glove. The Cardinals coming in 9th seemed ...

You have to love the power rankings piece for 2018 before any moves are made. Cubs are 8th. “Look, they should be good again, and maybe even better. That young foundation of position players remains, but while Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo were great in 2017, Addison Russell and Javier Baez didn't i...

I'm sure IU hopes he goes somewhere. I think the $4 million buyout is reduced significantly if he takes another job.

IU really bungled that. I assume they were trying to protect Crean, but I think it is too late. I think he is on his way out one way or the other. if he was going to get canned, why is IU waiting? I don't think it's going to happen this year. There just seems to be quite a bit of smoke surrounding ...
