I kinda want a lefty too but a lot of the righties we have are plenty good vs LHB and we’ll also have Monty in the pen in the playoffs to go with Wilson and maybe Hamels as lefty options.

I'd put a big heck no on Holland/Tillman. Tillman is done, IMO, as a starter. Maybe he can find something in the pen ... maybe.

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.

Saw we might be snagging Chad Hermansen from the Pirates in exchange for Darren Lewis.

Stroman is a big injury risk.

Alos, that sounds suspiciously like a Heyman CYA tweet. I bet the Cubs and several other teams are in the same demographic.

Yeah, this feels like one of those instances in which he was talking to somebody in the industry who brought this up, and although he can't write a story on it because there just isn't enough there, he wants to put it out there just in case it happens so it can be shown he was on top of things.

Which is fine.

Not saying it will happen, but the Cubs coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series does seem like the appropriate way to cap off this season and make the 30-for-30 even better.
