Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-17-19

Is this Tyson Miller the real deal? Could we have a proper pitching prospect on our hands?

Re: Minor League Musings

https://twitter.com/cubs/status/1125475726193516544?s=21 Robel is 26. He probably needs to get the bump to AAA. Huh, I know nothing about Robel Garcia. Is he a real prospect? I went on baseball-reference.com to look up his stats and there's this weird gap from 2013 to the present season. Seems too ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

So it looks like it’s down to the Phillies and Giants. But here’s my thing: are either of those organizations currently strong enough that Bryce Harper makes them good enough to put them over the top? And are their pockets deep enough that they can build enough around him to put them there? Because ...

How about Jose Iglesias? Because he’d be cheaper than Marwin and a quality defensive SS with a serviceable bat and doesn’t beat up his spouse.

Though it’s entirely possibly that the White Sox are the front runners, it’s more likely that Scott Boras is using them to light a fire under the usual big spenders.

Kind of odd. It’s not like the Jays are going to contend, so why not just let play him and hope he sparks some trade value?

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

For the love of GOD, can someone like Zobrist, Rizzo, or Heyward just step into the veteran leader roll so that we don’t have to give a roster spot to some variation of David Ross or Jonny Gomes? Please?

Not that Goldy would have a place on the Cubs, but did the Cards basically snag him for Mike Montgomery, Taylor Davis, and Giosker Amaya?

Starlin.

Assuming that we’ve seen the last of Addison Russell, how would we feel about a reunion with the guy he bumped out of town?

We know he’s for sale, but would he be worth the Marlins generally high asking price?

Maybe build something around Happ or Almora?

Re: Addison Russell

It's not a competition. He's a garbage person, and the Cubs knew it. So because a guy has different opinions than you, that makes him a horsefeathers person? I 100% disagree with Murphy but it’s his opinion. And my guess is, he’s far from the only one on the Cubs that disagrees with the gay lifesty...

Re: homophobe (Daniel Murphy), incoming (to the Cubs)

Back to the baseball side of things, he will make the lineup significantly tougher. I'd have to imagine he'll play against most every righty. With Bryant back soon, the ideal lineup starts to get ridiculously deep : RF - Zobrist 2B - Murphy 3B - Bryant 1B - Rizzo SS - Baez LF - Schwarber C - Contre...

Just wanted to read Brett's take, and Bleacher nation comments are a dumpster fire. All out culture war. Honestly, that's why I put in the (nearly) zero tolerance policy from the beginning. Given how things have evolved since 2004, I'm glad that we took that approach. I used to like BN, but lately ...
