Re: Good riddance

This team made the most of their window of contention and will be forever in my heart. This being said, it’s time to move on and rebuild; and Yu and Kyle are probably our top chips. When HoyerStein first took over, they had a hell of a lot less to work with and managed to spin it into gold. What’s a...

Ricketts has accomplished his goal (for which I am eternally grateful,) leaving HoyerStein to do as they wish, so long as it doesn’t involve money.

Vance Vizcaino? David Masters? Jerrick Suiter? Who the horsefeathers are these guys? Did the I Cubs put up a help wanted sign at a Country Kitchen? And Corey Black? Hasn’t he been out of baseball for like 5 years?

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

We need to scoop up Gausman, if for no reason than if we fail to do so, he’s destined to become a 12 time CY Young winner with the Cardinals.

Re: Addison Russell

I’m sure he’ll land on his feet someplace where character (or lack there of) isn’t an issue. Are the Astros in the market for a middle infielder?

How about sending him to Boston for Jackie Jr.? Both are provide above average defense at a quality position, both are capable of above average offense.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I was bored and ultimately wound up at Lester Strode’s Wikipedia page. This was the final sentence:

Despite being one of the few openly black bullpen coaches in the league, Strode is not believed to be a managerial candidate for the team. [6]


Can anyone else spot what’s wrong with this sentence?

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Wow, just learned that Yelich’s out for the season. A team with a -27 run differential shouldn’t even be above .500, let alone in contention. Take away 7.1 WAR player, and they’re pretty much sunk.

I guess that essentially takes on one contender in our quest for an extra game.

Re: Zobrist Begins Minor League Rehab

Zobrist isn’t in the I Cubs lineup today, and while he’s still on their roster, he’s not listed as on the bench per the box score. Could he be on his way up soon?

I knew he’d fallen off the past few years, but I didn’t realize how sickeningly awful he’d been. It’s kind of like the Maldonado acquisition, only the opposite.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-31-19

Let’s keep Brailyn nice and safe and healthy.

In non-prospect news, I wonder how long before Danny Hultzen’s called up. His line so far is respectable, though not awe-inspiring, and he could be an answer to the desperation for a lefty reliever.

Re: Trade targets 2019

Schwarber, Russell, Happ, + Chatwood + 1 Iowa Shuttle pitcher for Soler, Diekman, + Kennedy. KC needs 2B, CF, and DH (after trading Soler). Chatwood + Iowa pitcher can vie for rotation spots. Cubs get bullpen help and replacement for Schwarber. Money is fairly neutral making PTR happy. I’ll assume ...
