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

What did he do? Isn't he the guy that blocks home plate when someone pimps out a homer? Hates bat flips, all that stuff. Just super, super o!d school. Just that on a guy who otherwise perfectly fits the roster for baseball reasons and probably is ready to take low commit steady work as a backup/sem...

Any speculation what Brian McCann might get in FA? Lol, I've brought him up to some buddies. Theo has mentioned adding a guy with an "edge" and I thought of who's a Lackey type and McCann was first I saw as far as FA go...... My guess is he'd get 1/5 or so, plus some incentives? That said...

41 1st quarter points, followed by 17 in the 2nd lol. I think this is gonna be fairly normal for this group.

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

This group just isn't active enough. Those last few roster spots ought to be a constant shuffle and after enough of that, you might end up with a Covington..... I don't think they'll be a true contender for any elite FA next year. If anything, I'm hopeful they'll be able to take on bad salary then. ...

I want Reinsdorf to sell and GarPax gone. But, I'm not sure what you're supposed to expect heading into the second year of a rebuild. Parker was a flyer. Nothing more. Probably more upside than using that same money to add another Chandler Hutchison type talent..... I think LaVine and Dunn improve o...

Also, Bryce is getting way more than that. And Almora doesn't get you out from underneath Chatwood. And Brendan Little ain't getting a Will Smith type of return.

The injury factor is a good point. I've got no idea how to gauge Monty from a trade value standpoint.

Re: Realistic Trade Targets

Sharma has brought up Doolittle on multiple occasions, even saying there's a reason he brings him up lol..... So, I'm guessing we really like him. He's got 2 club options left, at 6 and 6.5 mill. Does Happ, Monty, and one of Short or Ademan get him? Or is that not in the ballpark? Or straight up.......

Re: Realistic Trade Targets

I like Marwin Gonzalez. Can we sign him in any scenario? What do you mean, by any scenario? If you mean, on top of adding Bryce, Castellanos, and one of Iglesias or Kipnis, the answer seemingly is no..... If you look at our payroll after bringing back Hamels, we're basically sitting around 225, cou...

Re: Realistic Trade Targets

Castellanos isn’t a free agent till after 2020 unless I’m misreading Cots. Getting a RH power hitter to offset an all lefty outfield (assuming the Cubs sign Harper) is a great idea, but it would be easier to fill the gaping hole in the middle infield. Hmm, I'm still seeing his last Arb year as 2019...

Re: Realistic Trade Targets

Castellanos makes some sense for us. But, he's a pure rental. And as a horrible defender too, I seriously doubt he's costing very much in trade...... Corner guys don't bring that much of a return, in general. He certainly wouldn't cost Schwarber or Happ. The problem though, in figuring out potential...

Man, we really got lucky...... So glad we dealt him when we did. Honestly, Thibs or Layden or both probably need to lose their jobs over this. His value is basically non existent at this stage.

Re: Realistic Trade Targets

Assuming any trades bring us pitching and not hitting, which may not even be true, but whatever..... If we get Bryce, give me Marwin or Escobar, to pair with him. Although, going with Iglesias or Half is MAY be a better fit. If we get Manny, get me the same, or maybe Chisenhall, if he's healthy.
