    Does Coghlan still have the ability to play 2B?...

    Does Coghlan still have the ability to play 2B? Because it could also be Kalish coming up. I'm sure that wouldn't upset you.

    Who can backup Starlin at SS on this current roster without Barney or...

    I don't think Strop's return will be enough to outweigh what he could be, if he gets it figured out. Plus, he hasn't done anything impressive to justify a good return.

    I still wanna see what...

    A good hitter on a bad team isn't really helpful, but there's no sense of trading him for nothing. I think he would be a good piece to a deal, but not one you should just trade 1 for 1; they...

    Hindsight, I know. But I can't stop looking and Cashner updates and thinking "what if?" Think about the state of the rebuild if the Cubs kept Cashner, and threw a boatload of cash at both Abreu &...

    Was there any follow up to Levine's write up about Toronto? I saw discussion on Stroman, but is Sanchez a possibility? What about a guy like Gose? Not sure if they're willing to pull the plug on him...

    How do you "bloom" when you're being platooned?...

    How do you "bloom" when you're being platooned? Platoon Valbuena with Barney and let an actual prospect get the ABs he needs. Valbuena at least adds a power potential to 2B.

    It's a leverage thing. The Indians will realize that they'll lose him and will pony up. We'll start the offseason with James Shields as the big prize.

    This. With the caveat that Alcantara would quite possibly be ready to land a starting 2B job somewhere. It's just wayyyy too much to give up for a single pitching prospect.

    Most on here would hate it because they overvalue Cubs prospects. Again, consider the main point.

    I think they are literally built for this year. JJ, Markakis, Cruz could be gone after this year. That leaves their lineup with three holes. You would assume Gausman could step into the rotation and...

    There could obviously be more coming back from Baltimore, I'm just specifying that they probably won't have to get rid of the 4 (or 5 with Edwards included) to net a good return.

    Next offseason might be on to start selling/buying. The market is weak, but we may be stocked with resources. Olt, Vogelbach, Alcantara, P. Johnson, Hendricks, Candelerio should net a pretty decent...

    I'm not saying they need a really big signing to attract another. They need a couple pretty good ones that give the MLB club a chance.

    I know Ichiro never has been too fond of Wrigley Field, but with the surplus of outfielders in New York, is it plausible that the Cubs make a play for him to help lure Tanaka in? If Schierholtz is...
