Re: Levine- Theo Epstein putting Stock in Soler

I get the feeling Soler was only available in trade for Carrasco, Salazar, Miller types of pitchers and at this point they know a 1 for 1 for that type of pitcher is not possible. I don't think the intention with him or Baez has ever been to get less that max value for them. Soler can be an absolute...

Re: Rosenthal: Zobrist to Cubs

so assuming he won't be playing 2b at age 38, he's gonna be a 38 yr old non power hitting defensive liability at a corner OF spot in year 4? Welcome to free agency. Does it even matter? The TV deal will be here by then and they will write that contract off like its nothing if he is bad. Besides, on...

Re: The Pitchers we can trade for....

Wasn't it John Hart who was all gushy over Albert Almora when the Cubs drafted him? I actually think the Cubs match up well with he Braves because the Braves don't seem to expect to compete for a couple years. That may allow them to use young top prospects and allow them to keep Baez/Soler. Does Tor...

Re: 2015/16 offseason

I'm in the camp on making Schwarber a 40 - 50 game catcher and 90-100 game LF. My top 2 targets are both Indians. I really want 1 of the Carrasco, Kluber, Salazar group and really want Brantley. If one of those 3 starters can be had I would top off the rotation with a Price, only because I think it ...

Re: 10/10 CUBS (HENDRICKS) @ CARDS (GARCIA,) 4:30 P.M. CT, TBS

Soler surprises me a bit. With AJax I think you ignore Garcias splits and look at the fact that he completely rakes against LHP.

Re: 10/09 CUBS (LESTER) @ CARDINALS (LACKEY), 5:30 PM CT, TBS

Cubs win this game 5-1 on the back of an 8 inning 1 run performance from Jon Lester! Castro / Coghlan each go 2-4 with 2 RBI's. Fowler reaches base 3 times again including a leadoff triple!

Take game 1!

Re: What's your wish list for the trade deadline?

I think the A's may be interested in Castro due to his contract and potential bounce back. Semien makes Castro look like the best SS ever defensively

McKinney, Edwards, Torres, Tseng for hamels
Castro and Cash for Zobrist
Burks, Pierce Johnson, Zac Rosscup for Parra and Will Smith

Re: What's your wish list for the trade deadline?

I really want Parra, Zobrist and Hamels.

Our offense is abysmal. Zobrist and Parra at least bring some hope and take some pressure off of Rizzo and Bryant

Re: DBacks trade Touki Toussaint and Arroyo to Atlanta

Like him or not, Hart has acquired a lot of intriguing SP in his short tenure. Miller looks tone breaking out, Wisler is up, Touki, Fried, Foltyniewicz and a few other more minor trades. They have cleared the books and could turn this around quickly.

Re: Koehler/Hand

I like Koehler as a back end option. I still think the Cubs would need another front end starter if they have a shot at a long playoff run. If the Marlins are making themselves desperate to make changes why not take advantage.
