Cubs Tender Deadline Moves

Postby Bertz » Mon Dec 02, 2019 11:53 pm



Our Addison Russell nightmare is over, and the Cubs are going to try and sneak Danny Hultzen down to Iowa. Everything else is as expected.

I hope that year of defending the indefensible was worth it.

For a team struggling with pitching, is non-tendering Hultzen a good idea? It seemed like he was pitching well and worth hanging on to

that scares the hell out of me. I feel like he's worth hanging on to, and another team out there will surely offer him a contract. especially a small market team needing pitching

Hultzen had 17 IP last year between AAA and MLB, and still walked 11 guys. He turned 30 a few days ago. If some team wants to guarantee him an MLB deal on that, more power to them. Hultzen is a cool story and I'd like to see him in Iowa again, but I'm not going to worry if he's not. They just grabbed a comparable/better option off waivers in Pelham, that type of upside/risk profile in a reliever is not in short supply.

Pie's in your face because it was actually a hilarious Andrew Dice Clay gif. If you don't know who that is ask any of the youths in your area
