That's why the Cubs should sign Harper first and then trade Heyward to the Giants

It’s always depressing to see positive tweets like this and then check the profile to see that they have fewer followers than me.

because apparently teams aren't offering the long deals...at least not at the AAVs being sought.

the follow up tweet about the cba was dumb though.

actually, who the hell knows what is actually being offered by anyone. this is weird as horsefeathers. it's february 6th.

50% more per year, and 300% more over the course of a decade is a huge difference. No one is trading for Heyward and his entire contract. but acting like there's a negligible difference between what he's owed, and what Harper will be owed is illogical.

No it’s not. Not when the difference is the production between Heyward and Harper.

Fun fact: According to bWAR, Jason Heyward was more valuable than Bryce Harper last year in considerably fewer games.

Funner fact: bWAR is dumb.



lol remember when bWAR had Darwin Barney as one of the most valuable players in the game? that horsefeathers is wild.

Harper had a bad year defensively but I can’t see any possible way you could say he was THREE WINS below replacement bad

That’s Adam Dunn level

Saw the new PECOTA projections this morning. Cubs, 82-80, third place.

Bryce is a need, not want.
