Re: Addison Russell

Still having him, having traded for Chapman knowing who he is, AND then going out and trading for Murphy knowing who he is are bad, bad, bad looks for the Cubs. They need to be a LOT better. Russell needs to be gone ASAP. Yea, the Chapman thing especially.. I don't think enough has changed in two y...

Re: Addison Russell

Do we really think the Cubs are going to do something about this? This isn’t the first time Russel and domestic violence were spoken of in the same sentence; They looked into her Instagram allegations 18 months ago. With the current #metoo movement, it would be a PR disaster for the entire organiza...

Plus, yea, the last part about injuries/busts. The 3 year window is with a lot of pieces falling right and on the very optimistic end.

You added an extra second round pick in there. Next years second round pick is Miller.

Re: Good, Morrow to work on the sabbath

De La Rosa has been great in 17 appearances for the Cubs, to the point where I'm almost expecting him to be on the postseason roster in the pen. Looking at the options: Strop (if healthy) Edwards Cishek Wilson Chavez Monty Rosario De La Rosa Kintzler Garcia Chatwood Mills Maples I'd say Edwards, Ci...

Re: Week 2: Seahawks @ Bears MNF on ESPN 7:15PM

Lynch, Amos, Robertson-Harris, Trevathan, Whitehair, and Howard are the only nevessary re-signings on that list None of the 9-10 are 100% necessary, but there is production that has to be replaced somewhere. There are some internal/cheap possibilities. But even of the core list you named, there is ...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Yelich has a wet noodle for an arm... I have no idea what that guy was thinking. Truth be told, I'd probably bet on Yelich to be the better overall player next year. He's just an incredibly well-rounded player (aside from his terrible arm strength). But Javy has been roughly as valuable this year (...

Re: Week 2: Seahawks @ Bears MNF on ESPN 7:15PM

How do you figure a 3 year core for this group? 9 main contributors who have to be re-upped or replaced the next two offseasons, and not a ton of money or draft capital to do it. I think this is much more a 2 year window, and even that is going to require crafting work at the edges of the roster ne...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Javy with an outside shot at the triple crown in the NL, now up to 10th in BA, 3rd in HR and 1st in RBI. Likely won't catch Yelich/Gennett for the batting title, but it's a great season. But he wins the Javy crown which replaces BA with leading the league in Javy tags, Javy slides, home bases swipe...

Re: Week 2: Seahawks @ Bears MNF on ESPN 7:15PM

I don't think anything involving having to worry about whether our No. 2 overall picked QB is any good is a 'best case scenario.' *Maybe* if he is a problem we can still salvage a real championship window out of this year or next year, but it's gonna be pretty hard. my "best case scenario"...
