    I know all of this, my point is that he's the only thing the As would have interest in as a headliner. Who else could possibly headline the package?

    Unless the Sox are giving up Rodon they aren't landing Samardzija. Oakland just gave up a better prospect than Rodon to acquire him. Also, if Oakland does trade him they're going to want top tier...

    That's a testament to just how putrid he was as an OFer He actually would have been a much more valuable player if he had played his entire career as a DH.

    Wheeler+D'Arnaud is really the only thing that works for me. Guys like Mesoraco,Gomes and Salvador Perez aren't going to be available and I have almost no interest Zunino. Personally I'd rather trade...

    Yeah Bryant's contact rate is a huge cause for concern. I've openly said as much. That's why I have him as the 3rd best Cub prospect behind Russell and Soler. I wont be at all surprised if Bryant...

    All run differential does is find a starting point from where you can move a standard deviation towards the right or left. If the Cubs have an even run differential technically they should win 81...

    He also Ks 26.9% and those contact issues is where I was comparing him to Baez.

    The Cubs could not sign a single free agent and they would be significantly improved next year. Cub RFers have amassed a grand total of .3fWAR this year thanks to the likes of Nate Schierholtz(-1.0)....

    Exactly. He isn't the type of player who comes up and immediately rakes. He's in the same category as your Baez types with the high K rate and substandard contact rate. It's going to take them some...

    If you can't figure out why 2013 is an outlier in an otherwise extremely consistent career than that's on you.

    Yes he's clearly just average. 3rd best wRC+ among SS at 113, 3rd best wOBA at .338,3rd best OPS at .776 and 6th best fWAR at 2.8 currently. It's pretty obvious that 2013 was an outlier in what has...

    So a top 20 prospect doesn't even come close as the center piece for Hamels? Are you under the impression that Hamels is fetching someone like Correa,Buxton,Bryant,Russell because that's not going...

    You're not going to get a package like that for a guy who is costing a team 20+M and has had shoulder issues.

    Why would they trade a 24 year old improving 3 time all star whose contract is expected to provide 50M in surplus value if he doesn't improve at all from this year?

    The pitching need is getting kind of overblown. If they add any of Shields/Lester/scherzer this offseason then the rotation is just fine.

    .280/.360/.400 with 20SB would be about his peak. Kid has had a a pretty miserable year. His K rate has jumped significantly and yet again this year he was an inefficient base stealer. If he's...

    So why is it that you all seem to think the Cubs, who are rebuilding, are going to add a guy who is going to be 33 next season? I think Lester is by far their most likely choice.

    Cubs snag Doubront for a PTBNL. He's been terrible in 2014, but was decent before that.

    The scouting report sounds promising. The numbers were just kind of meh other than the BB/9.

    Hmm, 20 years old in A ball. Excellent BB/9, not very good H/9 and just an ok K/9. Don't know the scouting report but based solely on numbers, yeah I know, I can't imagine I'd put him in the top...

    The moment he sets foot in St.Louis I expect his lost velocity to return and he'll go on an Ubaldo like 40IP stretch where he he gives up like 6ER and of course wins either NLCS or WS MVP.

    He has a 2.96FIP and 2.71xFIP to go with 10.06 K/9 and 1.15BB/9. The FIP,xFIP,projected fWAR,K/9 and BB/9 are all career bests. It's safe to say he's pitching better than he ever has before.
