Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

The Lester thing was treated with a lot of skepticism, IIRC, because the Cubs were still terrible and it was a lot of money. The Heyward thing was treated with skepticism because people didn't think they would go out and make a huge signing two years in a row, IIRC. The Tanaka thing was treated wit...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I feel like there's also a reason even the most pessimistic local reports refuse to completely slam the door on it by couching what they say with stuff like "as of right now" or "if they move money" and whatever else they've used.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

And they didn't hand him a blank check, and I'm pretty sure they didn't even offer him the biggest contract. They also didn’t tell everyone they couldn’t afford him. The Otani courting was also very public as it happened Even though I'm not even sure that's true (at least, being made so from the Cu...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I remember when the cheap and evil Ricketts paid $600 million for the Wrigley renovations out of their pockets instead of using public money. I also remember when the Cubs had the highest payroll in the NL last season. Go root for the Reds if you think the Cubs are cheap. How generous of them to pa...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

jesus christ it would be great if "sports reporting" was more about the reporting and less about being used to propagate leverage for the stupid front offices. It’s why Mark Gonzales is one of my favorite follows for Cubs stuff. He doesn’t speculate/push things, he just reports stuff as i...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Theo's FA pursuits always seem to go pretty stealthily, esp as far as national media goes. Seems like after the fact we always hear (whether it's a success or not) that we were much more involved (Ohtani, Tanaka come to mind) than was being let on. I think we just wrongly kind of expected otherwise ...
