Re: RE: Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Just trade for Verlander, Avila and Wilson and get it all done at once This is what I've been saying What would you guys expect the cost to be? Definitely Almora, possibly Happ. Maybe something like Almora, Clifton, Hatch, Candelario and Zagunis? i wouldn't trade happ in this deal in a million hors...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

https://twitter.com/Ken_Rosenthal/status/889873355188441088 Here’s something interesting you might know about the Cubs: Their luxury-tax number for 2018 is $74.6 million, leaving them more than under $120 million under the threshold, according to Cot’s Baseball Contracts. So, if the Cubs want to pu...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

So Willson hasn't really made any serious money yet, right? Might he be a candidate for an early extension? Didn't they try in the offseason? And he preferred playing it out? don't recall hearing that, but i might've missed it i guess edit - this snippet from heyman is all i could find The Cubs tri...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Correct me if I'm wrong, but picking up Verlander would effectively mean we're out on Otani before it even happens right? Lester still has 4 years, Quintana 3, Verlander 3 and Hendricks only hitting arb 1. I guess I could see them leaving Montgomery in the bullpen, but to spend another 200M on top ...

Scooter Gennett is hitting .316/.365/.607. He's hit 18 homers in 263 PA. His real name is Ryan, so now I'm curious how he got that nickname Gennett said he adopted the name as a 5-year-old fan of the Muppets character Scooter and used it as a permanent alias after his mother, Tina, tried to impart ...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

MLBN just did a look in on Verlander's start talking about scouts watching and they showed a guy with a radar gun that had a jacket/pullover on that had the old Cubs logo with the bear standing with the bat. I'm sure we have scouts everywhere but clearly there's one at Verlander's start tonight. Ar...

hard to believe how long it's been since he jumped ship to MLBN
