The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

I wonder why the Cubs weren't in on Gausman? Controllable until 2021, acquisition cost was minimal, and he's been really good for the Braves.

I could see the idiots running the Orioles not dealing with us after the Jake/Strop trade even if we had the best offer. They seem dumb enough to operate that way.

They’re the West Coast Mets. This is like their third pitcher who was broken and they tried their magic elixirs on who ended up as broke or more broke anyways.

Good thing we didn't get Ohtani and went with the safe bet for our big offseason starting pitching splash.

Oh.

Damn it. That really sucks. I was hoping he wouldn't need it.

Guess he's just a DH next year.

Since this happened after he got promoted, he loses a full year of service time with this. If it had happened a few starts earlier, they would have saved a whole bunch of cash later on.

I wonder if any White Sox fans are looking over at the Mets rotation with DeGrom, Thor, Matz, and Harvey in 2015 and starting to feel a little less comfortable about the future. Or heck, our 2003 rotation with Prior, Wood, Zambrano and Clement.

They have Kopech gone till 2020 and the chance Cease isn't a reliever with a good half from Rodon?

Is consider them lucky if they sniff the success or the 03 Cubs & 15 Mets pitching staffs and teams.

I do miss Eloy though.

Nah, I'm sure they've convinced themselves that building through young pitching is totally going to work for them

Sox fans I know think they are set better than the young Cubs were because they have a balance between pitching & hitting prospects.

Then again, they still think Moncada will be a superstar, too.
