    Fixing their farm system is said to be one of the top priorities of John Hart. This would certainly do a little to help them.

    They can use a stopgap at 2nd without rushing Peraza. Under Wren,...

    The Nats do have one of the best pitching prospects in baseball in Giolito. But he is still a ways off.

    I'd take Zimmerman, too. His extension would be expensive but you'd have a whole year to work with him on it.
  4. Sticky: Greinke is a better pitcher but he signed before...

    Greinke is a better pitcher but he signed before the 2013 season and will make 26.5 AAV going forward. He also had a draft pick attached. Lester doesn't have compensation attached and the price for...

    He's more like Altuve light with the hit tool but he'll take a walk. His defense is below average at second base. He's a fringe major league player if he isn't hitting at least in the upper .280's....

    The Wells extension was a completely different front office. They are really different now.

    Not only do I agree with this sentiment, they are so different that it's really hard to hold them up against each other and make a comparison.
  8. Sticky: I'm starting to wonder if Lester is looking at...

    I'm starting to wonder if Lester is looking at upward up 175/7 if Boston really opened the bidding at 120/6. That assumes he has more than a couple serious bidders.

    I would hate if Shields is the best pitcher they can sign but I'd take it if Lester gets an absurd offer from the Red Sox. As much as it's time for the Cubs to spend money when they need to, it's not...

    Yeah, Russell put on weight to try to increase his power but then lost it when it moved him off shortstop.

    Gammons is a huge homer for the Red Sox (Remember he suggested the Cubs give up their top prospect for signing Epstein). I'm sure that has something to do with it.

    Avila is not an upgrade over Wellington Castillo. Look at his numbers from the last couple seasons. He's not thought of as a good pitch framer even though his defense on batted balls appears to be...

    They are owned by Rogers Communications which is like the AT&T of Canada. Their owners have a ton of money.

    Either the Braves are trading everyone or they just got a raw deal. Miller's pretty good and cost-controlled but Heyward still has a great ceiling considering his glove, OBP, running skills and his...

    Castro is seen as a shortstop. The Phillies and Braves have shortstops that aren't going anywhere. They will hold onto hope that they can draw Bryant in a trade. There's no reason for them to take a...

    I think La Stella is just a nice bench bat and a guy who can play 2nd occasionally to give Baez or Castro a day off (or Valbuena?) by rotating players around. He is a much better reserve than what...

    Nobody with an established shortstop is going to accept Castro in a trade while the Cubs still have Kris Bryant. That means Castro isn't going to the Braves or Phillies.

    I could see Valbuena +...

    They can more than afford it. They're just the cheapest team in MLB when it comes to spending money.

    Bill James' projections are almost always sunny so it kind of makes me happy that it's not that optimistic for Baez. Maybe he can do better?

    He's good vs. righties so he could platoon with Ruggiano to start the season and see where it goes. They would have to make it worth the Cubs money, though. Crawford will probably end up somewhere...

    I really thought our return for Shark would start with an Almora like prospect. I cannot ****ing believe Russell was included.

    There isn't anyone other than Arrieta nearly as good as Scherzer in the Cubs' org right now and Lester's history says he is probably better than everybody but Arrieta (assuming Arrieta doesn't take...

    Shields is not nearly as good as Hamels. He has pitched more innings but Hamels is far far better at actually getting batters outs. That deal for Hamels would be a steal in the current market....
