    At this point I'd rather see Shields and one of the second tier SP's signed to shorter deals then to commit so much to Lester. I still think an impact veteran bat is the most important need for this...

    The second I read the thread title I was thinking, "precursor to a bigger deal". We will see.

    I had to watch Iowa get curb stomped by the Gophers yesterday and now this. I'm also a Laker fan. Thank god for the Theo and the Cubs, and college basketball season.

    I don't think this current...

    You are a trooper. I quit watching at 14-0. Seen this show too many times.

    Slightly off topic. Does anyone have any thoughts on today's modern bullpen construction? When I play fantasy gm in my brain space, I always want to build a filthy, nasty bullpen. Part of my...

    Can someone give me a refresh on the expected money/years for Russell Martin? I'm just not excited about giving a healthy contract to a guy who had an offensive resurgence after four down years. I...

    I didn't realize he was that far gone as an everyday player. I guess the Cubs are relegated to the less exciting positional free agents, as I sure as hell don't want them paying prospects at this...

    I assumed Wrigley would be one of the best left field matches for Cruz, I may be mistaken. I like Markakis more than most, and wouldn't be totally opposed to the Cubs attaining him, but Cruz is on...

    Am I an idiot for wanting Nelson Cruz? I know it's been rumored he would like to stay in Baltimore, and that if he does hit the market, you might be looking at an overpay, but I really think it's...

    I am feeling kind of neutral on this. I'm going to discount the backfire angle at this point, as I assume that the key players in the organization were consulted on the matter. If anyone has any...

    At this point, I'm just along for the ride and I'll be fine with whatever. I am still in awe at the amount of high end talent that has been accumulated here. If they end up not making a huge free...

    As to the "Whether or not to trade prospects for proven MLB talent debate", it ultimately comes down to how much confidence this front office has in their self scouting abilities. If they think they...

    Hub is baseball ********. His mantra regarding the Cubs every time I've heard him discuss them was that they should be able to remain competitive while they restock the system.

    Breaking MLB news.

    MLB has granted Cubs' prospects Kris Bryant and Addison Russel free agency.
    In a statement released just moments ago, MLB ruled that allowing these two players to remain...

    Watching Lester tonight, my past protestations decrying spending big money on a starter have subsided a bit.

    Big game pitcher, and his motion and repertoire would seem to be less susceptible to...

    This kind of thinking gets mentioned a lot, and it is a logical fallacy.

    What you really want in this situation is for the assets you have to perform to the best of their ability. Attaining a...

    I'm trying to think of leadoff type of's who could be available via trade for guys other than the elite prospects.

    Heyward, Zobrist, Gardner?

    I'm starting to feel that, with the first wave coming up, adding an established above average bat should be highest on the priority list. Just to take some pressure off of the young guys, as there...

    Watching him at the MLB level so far, it seems like he just needs to slow down a tad, like a microsecond, for pitch recognition.

    He has plenty of bat speed to punish the ball the other way, even...

    To your first point, I actually think the Cubs can compete next year without acquiring one of these three, and they obviously have the organizational depth to add at the deadline if need be.

    Agreed. Now is not the time to throw away patience.

    With Baez up, Soler coming soon, and Bryant and Russell knocking on the door, you can make a couple of medium free agent buys this off season...

    I'm very lazy, and off the top of my head, I can't think of a lot of guys his age that operate in his velocity range.
