I'd be thrilled to get Cozart for Chatwood.

Morosi's column this morning literally mentioned us being more enamored with future FA classes, and brought up Arenado specifically.

horsefeathers, this is the "excuse" they're gonna run with?

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Next year's class is the following position players..... Goldy-32 Gennett-30 Bogaerts-27 Gregorius-30 Arenado-29 Rendon-30 Ozuna-29 Hicks-30 Castellanos-28 Puig-29 And MAYBE JD opts out of 3/62 at age 32...... So, what the horsefeathers are we waiting on? You don't get chances at guys like Bryce or ...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

All of Theo's prior comments have alluded to having funds available for this exact situation. If they don't have them now, I'm damn near certain that Theo got blindsided by Ricketts at the end of the season org meetings, where they discuss budget and all that stuff.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I don't think there's any chance we go to the 250's. Honestly, I think it's extremely likely we stay under the 246 top tier. In fact, I agree we may have 2 separate payroll areas too. 246 or under with Bryce, 226 or under without him. But, I don't think there's any chance we wind up in the 250's. If...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I just listened to the Finfer/Sharma/Greenberg podcast. They're definitely not painting a pretty picture about this offseason. That said, we'll hear from Theo at the GM Meetings next week. That's when we'll know whether we've got the ability to get him or not. Personally, I'm starting to think that ...

Evidently so. Sharma says we want Chavez and Delarosa back and are interested in Doolittle, Will Smith, and Tony Watson in trade.

Also said any money we were spending was going to offense this year.

Re: Cubs Picking Up Hamels Option, Trading Smyly to Rangers

I mean, they've both had TJS. The only reason Smyly missed 2 seasons is they waited forever for him to have his, for some reason. He didn't have his until very late June in 2016, despite not pitching up until then, with elbow issues. That supposedly came on from him pitching in the WBC, after throwi...

Re: Cubs Picking Up Hamels Option, Trading Smyly to Rangers

I just look at it mainly thru the eyes of conceivably Smyly is ready to pitch in 2019. Full year removed from TJS. Chatwood? I think you've gotta look at him as kind of a headache/project at this point. Although, I'll give you the fact that he COULD be looked at as a change of scenery guy to plenty...

Re: Cubs Picking Up Hamels Option, Trading Smyly to Rangers

This is a weird move. If you're holding the 6 mill over the Rangers head, why do you deal them Smyly? Wouldn't Kintzler or Duensing, or BOTH, been more advantageous to us? BOTH is only an extra 1.5 mill from the Rangers side of things....... Seems like we could have sent them something pretty under...

Outside of Philly, every team that's a true contender for him(I honestly don't think Atlanta will be), will be into the Luxury Tax, in signing him......

275 means they're paying over 300. I've been of the mindset that's where we're headed..... But, this news definitely puts at least a serious question as to whether that's realistic.
