    Theo and company are not afraid of Scott Boras. Though you can bet for sure that Scherzer is going to get paid huge money by someone with or without Boras.

    Kind of glad he didn't. I bet he takes over the bench coach job in Chicago.

    I am afraid you may be setting yourself up for disappointment then. I would love for them to sign Lester just as much as anyone else on here. Just am not convinced Theo will open up the checkbook...

    I agree completely. I would have loved to have him on the Cubs. Though not for that 5th year. Though had to fix the receiving team of Grandal.

    Nice signing even at a bit of an overpay. Though that is what happens when you want to sign a top FA in at a thin position for FA's. More than anything I am glad that the Cubs didn't choose to...

    First of all great signing. Wish he would have signed with the Cubs but glad they didn't match that contract offer. The Cubs simply couldn't stash him at DH at the end of the contract. Think they...

    The Cubs and I think you gave the reasons for it. Castro's contract and what Heyward will cost to resign. I simply don't think that return is enough to move Castro.

    The A's fast tracked him quite a bit though. Didn't Theo state at one point that he likes a player to spend a year at each level? And if they didn't call up Bryant during his torrid pace through AAA...

    I think that right there is why Hamels will not be traded at all. He is probably going to keep insisting on that top prospect package that nobody is going to be willing to give up. Seager and...

    Isn't it obvious that they simply have to many SS's and must trade the depth? :rolleyes: Honestly I would be shocked if they traded him unless they got absolutely blown away with a trade proposal....

    This as a Cubs fan is where I am at also. Goes without saying that I would love to dig into some of the Mets pitching talent as it is a need at this point in the high minors in the Cubs system....

    First off two very well written posts. I will simply add a little bit to them. 2013 for Castro was absolutely an outlier for several reasons. First coming into the season he was facing rape charges...

    He has already reportedly turned down a contract extension offer and is looking forward to hitting FA next off season. I don't think the reports of the Cubs trying to trade for him where legit...

    This is true and also probably why it was shot down about as quick as it came out. Two things work against trading him at this point. One the Nationals are competitive and have no reason to weaken...

    Cost controlled must mean something different to you than it does me. For a package of top prospects your looking at someone that is either pre arbitration eligible or just barely into it. At least...

    No he is not. There is a difference in trading during the winter and the trade deadline that is being missed. The supply now is much greater than it was then. Driving the value of what you would...

    That is all true and would work. Though that still wouldn't help the two teams get close on what Castro's value is. Wheeler would be a really nice piece to plug into the rotation. Though they are...

    Exactly. On paper it looks as though they would match up very well for a trade. Though I don't think either team is willing to cut into their own respective surplus. Especially on the Cubs side where...

    I am not saying he is or isn't worth that. Just that you are going to have to give up surplus value for the Cubs to be willing to move him that is all. In order to get a proven major league player on...

    I think that is why there won't be a trade between the two. As I would guess that the Cubs would ask for not one but both in return. With Castro already a proven player making less than $9m a year...

    Thats all fine and good. Though still hold to there is no way in hell Russell or Bryant go anywhere at this point for pitching. Especially when there is going to be so much of it available as FA's....

    You simply cannot use what Shark got since we aren't comparing apples to apples. When Shark and Hammells where traded it was at the trade deadline not over last winter. Outside of Price at that time...

    Not a chance in hell of that happening. Zimmerman for what the Cubs would have to give up in this is nowhere near enough.

    I completely agree with you here. If the Mets want to keep your pitching intact going after Castro or one of the other SS's in the Cubs system is not the way to go. I have to believe they are going...
