Yeah but they're trading us Cueto and his hair is so big they have to buy him an extra seat on all the flights, so they'll make it up in other ways.

Lee was an incredible athlete coming out of HS. Maybe he still has a chance.

Giants signed Rene Rivera to minor league contract. I guess we can't even afford minor league deals anymore.

Guessing he’s essentially guaranteed a spot if he doesn’t get hurt or has a disaster ST with Posey starting the year hurt. But yeah, idk why the hell we didn’t do this and give him a guaranteed deal. Hopefully we still get Maldonado.

Nick Hundley signed a minor league deal with Oakland and AJ Ellis took a front office job with the Padres. Going in to the season with Vic as the primary backup catcher makes me so irrationally angry.

They signed that one guy who did that thing for the Angels last year so there's that

Theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeoooooooooooooooo!

Edit: This guy even made MLB.com’s All NRI list for ST so you can’t say the Cubs didn’t try:

C: Francisco Arcia, Cubs
Arcia is a potentially important depth piece behind Willson Contreras and Victor Caratini. Even though the 29-year-old has only played 40 games in the bigs after being called up by the Angels last year, he has the distinction of being the only player in history to catch, pitch and hit a home run in the same game.

Alas, it was a 21-3 loss to the A's, and Arcia's response when told of his historic feat was perfect: "I'm pretty happy ... I guess."

Meh...The Cubs have had enough Hundleys catch for them over the years.

This is mostly just buying out his controlled years, right? So, I suppose for a pitcher who could throw his arm out, you take the locked in money.

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.

Yeah, based on that twitter thread he has 2 year or arb remaining?

Owners are crushing it right now. No collusion!

'20 - arb year 2
'21 - arb year 3
'22 - would have been FA
'23 - is 16 mill club option / 4.25 buy out

How could be have possibly made less money by not signing this deal?

Even if he got hurt.

Time to strike on a Hendricks extension?

The number of very good pitchers who hit arbitration and don't end up making 40+ million is...substantial. Pitching is fleeting, take the money.

So if Nola is the benchmark, what's a Hendricks extension look like?

$3M signing bonus, $9M in '20, $12 M in '21, $12 M in '22, $15M option in '23 with a $4M buyout?

He's a free agent in '21, so how would you propose convincing him to take $12m in both 21 and 22 and lock into a 15m option in '23?
