Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

The longer this drags out and the longer we make no moves of substance it makes me think we are more in on Bryce than is known. I think we have the moves/trades lined up to sign him if he tells us he wants to come/accepts our offer, but we aren’t going to make those moves if he doesn’t come because...

While I agree with the sarcastic sentiment here, Zobrist is old and crusty, and there’s no guarantee he’ll continue to get on base at a —— holy crap! He had a .378 OBP last year?!? Nevermind.

I was just reminded that Harper’s full name is Bryce Aron Max Harper. I have decided I prefer an outfield of Schwarber, Happ/Almora, Heyward.

Re: Do you think Harper will sign with the Cubs this offseason?

The only real arguments I can think of against this are: 1) Something changed with how much payroll the Ricketts were willing to give Theo between the time he signed Yu and now Does this sound familiar to anybody else?

Well then he’s a horsefeathering idiot for leaving $100-200 million guaranteed on the table by taking a 4/5 year deal, since the long term deal will allow him to hit FA again with opt outs as already mentioned.

They are also currently 9 million under cap and we are over by 14 million.
