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. ...

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

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. They handled it really poorly for sure and I think Thibs isn’t that great a coach. But this is still a lo...

The TWolves cancelled their practice today, so Jimmy couldn't bust in again lol.

I'm assuming he's getting dealt today. If not, this is hilarious.

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.

Realistic Trade Targets

Looks like there's a good possibility of Arizona trading Greinke and Goldschmidt, at least. I'd be very interested in Archie Bradley..... The Padres have a serious 40 Man crunch coming, it'd be nice to find a way to take advantage of that. The Braves have so many arms, I'd love to find a way to grab...

So? Is my first reaction. Can't expect a Boras client to cave this quickly anyway. Second reaction is trading him coming off his 2018 wouldn't maximize his value anyway.

I think we'd get more than just one of that group for Schwarber. An Alzolay type starter prospect too, perhaps?
