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

I know last offseason was terrible, but this seems like an awfully boring/slow Winter Meetings this year. I used to always look forward to all the trades and signings that come out of these.

Re: Rule 5/Rule V/Rule Five or whatever you weirdos want to call it

Are you the one who's been all about Richie Martin for what seems like months?

If we trade Russell before tomorrow afternoon, then sure.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I still want to believe we can convince someone like the Mets to trade for him. Maybe put a garbage package of him and Chatwood together to the Royals or Padres for peanuts. My latest dream is some weird version of Russell, Chatwood and a prospect like Steele to the Jays for Russell Martin and the b...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

So trade Russell to a team like the Mets or Padres or Royals and then add a prospect and bribe someone like the Angels into taking Chatwood's contract and then trade Almora or Happ for pitching prospects and there ya go.

Re: Lee Smith, Harold Baines elected to HOF

Yeah, I was more focused on Lee. Baines would open the door for a lot of others. McGriff should then get in. Carlos Delgado deserves more consideration than he got on the ballot.

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

Right-hander Pierce Johnson has announced (via Twitter) a new deal to pitch for the Hanshin Tigers in Japan.


He pitched for the Giants last season. Best of luck. We still have Underwood.

Re: Ronald Torreyes is not a Cub

At some point, I'd love to hear the reasoning behind this series of moves. It's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things but it's so bizarre. And he's a cheap middle infielder that would've made sense to stash at Iowa.

We have a lot of interesting talent several years away and some unexciting arms that could help next year. Between that is barren. Kinda surprised Rucker, Swarmer and Assad missed the top 31 given the system is weak and the former two seem to have high floors and the latter has some good stuff. I ki...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Bryce just needs to sign so we have something fun to talk about. Day 1 of the Winter Meetings in Vegas: Harper calls a press conference. Sits at a table with hats of the Phillies, Nats, Dodgers, Yankees in front of him. Says he has decided. Then, Anthony Rizzo appears, flips the table. Kris Bryant ...

Re: Is there a sports cards discussion?

Went to the card show in Philly. It was HUGE. Didn't even see everything and I was there for 2.5 hours.

Got some good stuff for good deals, including Aramis Ramirez, Derek Lee and Carl's Jr signed cards, as well as a Jack Pfeister T206 card (I love those)

Re: Segura to Phillies Pending NTC

Segura “and possibly one other player” are going to the Phillies in exchange for a trade package including Santana and Crawford, the Seattle Times’ Ryan Divish reports.


I'm now expecting some weird Seager and Gordon to the Angels for Cozart and Adell trade.
