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

This is a difficult question because nobody really knows what the exact profit is that a team like the Cubs make after all the expenses, but what is a good guess as to what the payroll should be and one that would get people to go, 'OK, they spend enough.'

$300 million? $400 million?

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

Still don't get how a trade expected to be bad for 2020 will magically become good in 2021. Especially if it's a growth and development thing then the realistic scenario card is out Not to mention wasting Quintana and Lester's last year, and one of few remaining years for Rizzo, Schwarber, maybe Co...

Re: Hernan Perez Signed to NRI

Is that the guy who hit two grand slams in like a week this season, or was that some other horsefeathering Brewers scrub who played hero?

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

Imagine looking at the Brewers and Cardinals roster and thinking the best case scenario with a KB/Baez/Hendricks (Rizzo/Contreras/Yu...) led team is "a mediocre team that hopefully somehow sneaks into the playoffs". Of course, to be fair, the team with KB/Baez/Hendricks (Rizzo/Contreras/Y...

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

No, not run the Cubs. I will say Duke Silver was pretty smart and I wonder how good he could be as an analyst inside baseball Ops for an MLB team... No, I wasn't trying to make a comparison between running the Cubs and creating a small business selling custom made candles; just trying to point out ...

That sucks and they are a huge part of the problem, but also this is too weak. I don't want excuses. They have to do better.

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

I changed it for you and I agree. It's damn hard running a team and making these decisions, but I trust Theo (for the most part). I don't trust the scouts and people under him making the right decisions, but I guess they're rectifying that by changing personnel pretty heavily throughout the organiz...

This post is only being written for myself so I have somewhere to look back and see how wrong I was. Just pretend I'm talking to myself here. I'd trade Bryant to the Braves for a package that includes Max Fried. I like his ability and pedigree and having him locked up for the next five seasons. A Q ...

Re: Potential Kris Bryant trade thread

Having a young center fielder who legit plays great defense and who easily can beat out slow grounders in the infield would be amazing.

I just don't think they will be willing to deal him, though.

Re: 2020 roster

As I have previously wrote, we better be in the top-5 in payroll moving forward every year. The market and the popularity of this team is a huge advantage and must be utilized. Right now, I am more disappointed that what I consider a top front office has not utilized that advantage very well at all....

We have had the nucleus of the 2016 World Series team the last three seasons and even added some impact pieces around it, and we have gone from winning the division, to winning the Wild Card to not making the playoffs. I don't believe we are winning the World Series in 2020 and I don't really want ...

Pham really settled in with the Rays. Is he about go get expensive/are the Rays hoping Renfroe is a change-of-scenery candidate? Seems like an odd trade for them, though I can see why the Padres would do it. Also it just me or the Padres and Rays seem to make a trade with each other every offseason...

Bowden recommends a move for the Cubs during the winter meetings: Trade outfielder Brennen Davis and right-handed pitcher Cory Abbott to the Royals in exchange for second baseman/outfielder Whit Merrifield. The Cubs are in dire need of a leadoff hitter and Merrifield could fit in nicely. Merrifield...

I think it’s just Nightengale being an idiot. Other than signings happening faster I still don’t see this offseason being all that different as the past few ones so far. Guys are ending up with about the money they should, ultimately. It’s just happening sooner, so far. I guess I'm conflicted on th...

I think with him, I'd prefer signing him at $18 million for one year rather than the $30 million for two years some were projecting.

It could be wrong of me to prefer that, though.
