horsefeathering gross on McCutchen if he’s the only move. That doesn’t move any needles. If he’s part of the Bryce FU offseason, sure.

McCutchen is one of my favorite players of all time, but hard pass. The Cubs offense is fine and still pretty young, so there's no reason to make a move just to make a move. Any move needs to move the needle. Obviously Bryce is the ideal, but if we miss on him go for one of the high risk/high reward guys in the second tier. Maybe that's AJ Pollack, who will give you 2/3s of a really great year each year. Maybe that's a pillow contract for Josh Donaldson. Maybe that's two high end relievers like Miller and Robertson. The team is not hurting for another "pretty good I guess" player (unless they can back up SS), Cutch solves nothing for this team.

I like Cutch as a person and he's a fine player but that's a move for the sake of making a move. He doesn't add much to the offense and his defense is about on par with Shwarber's now.

The McCutchen signing is gross in the context of him being their loudest FA signing but he’d work great with Harper or Machado. Might even answer the leadoff question for a year or two

I actually find 2/10 for Chavez more gross

Yeah like I said McCutchen with Harper is fine. By himself awful. And if Chavez costs more than $3-4 million for 1 year no thanks

The predicted length of the Machado/Harper contracts is getting ridiculous.

I think both will get longer deals than they “should” because teams will add 1-3 years for LT purposes. 11 to 14 years makes a lot of sense for that.
