Re: Cubs Trade for Brandon Kintzler

Kintzler has a $10 million team option next year and if it’s declined can exercise a $5 million player option, fwiw. So he’ll back next year, right? There’s pretty much no way Kintzler turns down the $5M player option, right? Don’t know if that makes the trade better or worse. If he pitches well/do...

Yeah they should’ve traded, Mikolas, Norris, Martinez, maybe even Carpenter

Re: Regular Season Rumors

The Orioles have a trade done, apparently. A Monty and prospect(s) for Gausman would interest me.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Call me crazy but I don't hate trading for Harvey if the cost is minimal. I like the idea of acquiring a crapload of pitchers and hoping 3-4 of them work out. Strangely at the same time, I would love it if Harvey was the Brewers deadline move because I don't fear him at all. I feel the same way on ...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

I would feel okay if the Cubs opted to go dumpster diving for relief help on the waiver wire. I like Ziegler, but I don't think they have the farm to trade for a high level reliever and I don't foresee anyone on the 25 man getting moved until the offseason. When you see what these RPs are going for...

He’s made a mechanical change, he has like a .6 era for a few months now, gets like 80% GBs, And his velocity is up are the spark notes

Re: Regular Season Rumors

3 team trade...... Almora and prospects to Marlins, Realmuto to Nats, Bryce, Maybin and Ziegler to Cubs Then separate trade of Happ and Monty and prospects for DeGrom I really doubt the Marlins do that. They are supposedly asking for Robles and Kieboom already, two likely top 50 guys, and the Natio...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

There’s some really intriguing things about Ziegler on top of this, he has a crazy GB rate and has given up like 2 runs in his last ~30 appearances

Ideally a 3 team trade where some combo of Happ, Almora and Monty and prospects go out and we end up with Bryce and a starter. But just for Bryce, Caritini is like the most I’m giving up off the MLB roster and I’m not trading Amaya for him

His previous 4 starts:

21.1 IP, 31 H, 15 ER, 11 BB, 16 K, 1.97 WHIP, 6.33 ERA.

Consistency is key, and he ain't got it yet.

It’s a good thing we gave Farrell that start last week

Re: Regular Season Rumors

DeGrom is the only guy out there I’d include Happ for, I think, I’m definitely not trading him for Archer and Stroman I go back and forth on.


My hunch is that it is Stroman and would take something like Happ, Monty and 2 not great prospects.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Obviously you wait and see how he does the rest of the season and in the playoffs, but if you had to make the decision today, would you resign Justin Wilson assuming the price is right? After a horrible first 3 weeks in May (and since May 26th), Wilson has a 2.88 ERA, a slash of .200/.301/.288, and...
