Re: Fowler

Instead of returning to different classes of free agents (type a, type b, unclassified) like under the old system, would it be feasible to combine the two systems. Currently the qualifying offer is set as the average of the top 125 contracts (is it aav or current year?). What if the were two types/t...

Well now it's been so long I'm questioning my own knowledge. Didn't they have a salary cap back in the 90's? I'm losing it.

Either way, point still stands.

Re: Fowler

If what Olney says is correct and Dex can't find 2/20 out there, at some point, it does become feasible to bring him back and trade Soler + for the best pitching you can get, right? Trade Coghlan, not Soler. Fowler is an upgrade and a much better roster fit than Coghlan, swapping Fowler for Soler d...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Very interesting. For all the talk of the Cubs tanking for high draft picks, there's surprisingly little from draft picks there. Although Cubs draftees were involved in some of those trades (cashner and samardszija) and some of the players recieved in trades wouldn't have been acquired by a team act...

Fowler would be a huge upgrade as a 4th OF with the current OF configuration the Cubs have. Right now, the Cubs OF has 3 main issues surrounding it. They are relatively weak against LHP.

Backup shortstop who won't play because Russell doesn't need a backup. Baez traded for Cobb. Any better?
