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

Dexter, Happ and Ross were playing golf today. I don’t care how dumb and irrational the idea is. Figure out a way to get Dexter back, send Chatwood (owed less overall $ and 1 less year) and a prospect or something. Then send Almora away for whatever you can get. Get the band back together for the F...

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

The other problem with Gordon is Joe would lead him off anytime he started because “he’s fast and slaps the ball around and that’s what a leadoff hitter is and does” even though he walked 9 times last year (BB% under 2%) and Almora has a higher career OBP than him. Hasnt join been the opposite of t...

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

Because I don't want to read a report right now ... Just for fun, because of Theo's comments about it being "virtually impossible" Can anyone come up with Bryant deal that a) Makes sense for the Cubs b) Makes sense for the opposing team? c) Offers the Cubs a headline player d) Offers the ...

Gross, he's not a leadoff hitter https://twitter.com/670TheScore/status/1061007271457705984 Why's that gross? I don't think he's all that good (or at least a ~5 win player like last year, he's probably closer to 2-3), he's going to be 30 when the year starts, he certainly isn't a leadoff hitter and...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Apparently Harper was spotted at the Blackhawks game last night or something? I know there was the White Sox thing, but maybe Charles the Cat was right about him meeting with the Cubs this weekend, too. Charles The Cat is the hero we need right now with all the idiot, hack beat writers doing their ...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

Kaplan tried to push this same BS in the last month and Sharma (one of the only good Cubs writers) shut it down then.

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

So nobody needs to give clicks. Theo literally said this about KB in the article ”Given what we're trying to accomplish, it would be virtually impossible to envision the deal that would make sense to move them. I just don't believe in untouchables. Why limit yourself?” So it was the old, player wasn...

Open to trading KB? What the actual horsefeathers is happening

Yeah I’m calling BS on that. Didn’t Theo basically shut down the same report from Kaplan or one of the other local idiots a month ago?

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

I’m sure Bryce would sign a deal with no opt outs if he was given ~$100 million more than the highest offer and a full NTC because those are the type of trade offs you’d have to give for him not having opt outs. Whether or not you think opt outs are good or bad or like them or not doesn’t matter. T...

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

Wonder who Jason Heyward is signing with this off-season. Yeah that’s not the point though. Players who already have leverage (due to age positional scarcity or whatever) will always ask for opt outs. Once one team is willing to kick in, they all have to. You might as well be complaining about the ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Bryce and Boras meeting with the White Sox almost has to entirely be to leverage some team he actually wants to go to, to up an offer or jump in that currently isn’t. He’s not actually going to end up there or St Louis.

Oh yeah. If we could’ve gotten Pazos back in it too with some other stuff going back (the always mentioned Vic, Maples, Short, etc type crowd) I definitely would’ve done it. If they were to add anyone with some velocity and the ability to pitch in the MLs next year, then this idea moves from “hmm” ...

I still like Pazos as a target a lot, even more than Miller...
