Looks like trades are where it’s at after Harper...Pretty meh on the FA class after the big ones*
Once the Cubs sign Harper, which writer puts out the longest and gooiest article about the Cubs’ long roller coaster courtship?
I’m down for a weird offseason:
Cheap backup C
Contreras for Jon Gray/Marcus Stroman
Happ, Almora, Montgomery, Ademan, Marquez for Realmuto
I like this off season overall a lot. I think it's still taking Amaya, instead of Ademan probably. But, we probably could keep Monty. Contreras might bring a bit back with one of Gray or Stroman. Only move I'd stay away from us Dietrich. He can't p!ay D anywhere at this point, I'd rather have a guy who's versatile because he CAN play, not because the team is hiding him.
Harper and Robertson are fine, as a "only 2 moves" off season too.
Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.
