Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

yeah darvish is winning cy young this year. That’s not the most ridiculous proposition in the world. IF he’s healthy enough to pitch 180+ innings and IF he performs just a bit better than his career averages, he’ll be a top 10 Cy Young candidate. It’s not real likely, but it’s better than a lottery...

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

I don't think the return will be interesting enough for a 38 year old that will need to work a catchers schedule (at most) to be effective. Unless they are at a a charging players for the vending machine level of having no money. I bet you could get a Monty type guy for him, for what Monty was at t...

The idea of trading Zobrist isn’t that crazy to me in the right sequence of move, those names mentioned as replacements are horsefeathering gross though. Like trading him gets a decent prospect, clears his money and let’s us add a good RP, Lowrie and Brantley I’m in for that sequence of moves.

Re: Lee Smith, Harold Baines elected to HOF

He claimed to have sources earlier in the offseason and he got the leak/report we had no money.

We’re interested in Soria. As the 2nd relief pitcher added (if we assume we are adding 2) I’m fine with it. As the main one that would be underwhelming.

If you assume the TV deal not being done/horsefeathers up is the reason for the cash crunch he should be since he’s probably the guy overseeing that.

I have a hunch the overwhelming majority of Cub fans would love to trade Quintana for Jimenez & Cease. As a trade chip I'd take him back, sure. As a big league player, he is a DH or a bad corner outfielder. Sounds like my description of Schwarber two years ago. Right, but we had Bryant and Rizz...
