Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread AKA The Rickettssss take a dump on EVERYTHING

Cubswin11 wrote:I mean Pomeranz was awful, hurt? and his velo was down last year. This seems like the type of deal he should be getting and shouldn’t have been in any contenders planned rotation.
