    Yawn. Can't see how he's an upgrade. I'd rather find a replacement level player at league minimum than give Gomes anything higher than 7 figures.

    Sticky: I remember the same thing. He added on weight,...

    I remember the same thing. He added on weight, then some team he was playing on (Team USA) moved him off SS to 3B. With the added weight he lost some speed and range. He really likes playing SS so he...

    There is an absolute dearth of quality Cubs reporting at the moment. Brett Taylor/Bleacher Nation is the only guy I consistently read/pay attention to. Sharma was picked up by BP so he won't really...

    Some of those are also only good or bad deals in hindsight, which isn't really how all trades should be evaluated. I was actually on vacation in Boston when the Red Sox traded for Gagne. We were...

    I haven't been following IFA's too much recently, the Cubs aren't expected to be in on Tomas or Moncada, right? Or is Tomas a no and Moncada is anybody's guess?

    No, Martin takes Addison's last name and becomes Russell Russell.

    Bingo. Get it done. With a Martin acquisition it's possible the Cubs field a league-average bat at every position (probably a long shot, but possible for sure). That's sorta what the 2013 Red Sox...

    Can't we just get a kickstarter to pay Edwin to leave so we don't have to get a bad player back in return? I have some spare change I'd be willing to donate.

    I really, really want Russell Martin. Moreso than every FA that isn't Lester. If I had to bet on any player taking a nosedive in 2015, it's Castillo. Overweight catchers have the worst aging curves...

    This is going to be the longest offseason in the goddamn world. And I've experienced some long offseasons.

    I can't believe how against I was trading Jeff Samardzija and then all of a sudden Addison Russell is in the organization and I cannot be happier. Seriously, that is an amazing trade.

    I really like Renteria as a person, and he did a great job with a lot of the younger players. But I do have issues with RR's in game managing, and it actually seemed to get worse as the season wore...

    They aren't. To add, Puig is so much better a hitter than Castro. Puig's wRC+ is 147 compared to Castro's 115. A 22% difference. And Puig is probably going to slug more than he did in 2014, going...

    Start Heyward trade discussions with Mendy and Edwards. Obviously not enough but it gets it going. I do love the idea of trading for Heyward. He's still only 25. I am starting to make myself drool.

    There's whispers of him going back to SD. He might get one of those President roles or something. An executive role.

    Yeah someone was speculating on Twitter the same thing. Let's hope they keep it at 3 games a piece next year. Remember 2008, when the Cubs and Sox were both really good? Those series had so much hype...

    Almora's contact rate is 87%, league average for AA is 83%. I don't know if it's possible to find it for people his age.

    The thing is, we know he makes fantastic contact. It's just the complete...

    If Baez has a .300 BABIP, makes contact 65% of the time(a strikeout rate around 30%), hits 30 home runs in 600 PA, walks 6% of the time, and has a .240 ISO (for reference, he had .261, .344, and .250...

    I still can't believe Addison Russell is in this system. This has gotta be one of my favorite transactions of all time. The system was great and something to be proud of before he arrived. Adding...

    I was surprised he turned down the Padres GM interview. And then like four other people turned it now. I've never seen that before. It must be known it's toxic.

    Even if Bryant moves to the OF, Russell coming up forces shuffling and one of he, Castro, or Baez will have to play 3B. 3B just isn't a priority, unless you also plan on trading a non-Alcantara...

    Baez's main problem can be outlined pretty easily with his plate discipline numbers. He A) swinging at too many pitches out of the zone and B) not making enough contact when he swings at pitches out...
