Get rid of all these bums except for (currently) Contreras until he hits a rough patch, at which point he can go to.

Re: Cubs Acquire Justin Wilson & Alex Avila for Candelario, Paredes & PTBNL/Cash

The Cubs have mortgaged any chance they have at a long term dynasty over the past 2 seasons to go for wins now. I don't think they are doing the wrong thing, I think they could easily win 1 or 2 more World Series in this stretch. That doesn't change the fact that this is good for the Brewers long t...

Re: Cubs Close to Acquiring Justin Wilson & Alex Avila

I'm glad we managed to cash in Candelerio for something. I know Paredes was one of the last things resembling a prospect in our once mighty farm system, but having a depleted farm system is a lot easier to swallow when you have a big league team like ours.

Re: Random In-season Musings and Rumors

Awfully nice of the Sox to trade away all their good players before playing us next week. I was going to be all like "they didn't; they traded Frazier" then I realized how bad their roster really is They have some OK bats in Abreu, Garcia, and Cabrera, but that pitching makes the 2012-201...

The White Sox now have 9 prospects in the top 68, and 2 of the top 5, while the Cubs join the Royals as the only 2 teams without a top 100 guy. What else do those two teams have in common? :-) A World Series win followed by abrupt plummet to mediocrity? And FWIW, MLB.com has Jeimer at 81, so there'...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

If they want to pick up that contract and throw the Zagunis/Hatch/Candelario's of the farm then fine, whatever. However if they end up picking up that contract and dealing any of Eloy,Happ,Cease then that's going to be near impossible to justify to me. This. They can take the entire Iowa and Tennes...
