    I like this idea along with Lester. Plugging a Liriano like player (or even someone like McCarthy if he's available). Another low-financial commitment rebound idea like Hammel/Feldman but for a bit...

    I get the point with Span and moving Alcantara to super-sub, but I don't like not giving the rookie the regular at bats when I think Span and Alcantara would have reasonably close value. I'd rather...

    Yeah, I wouldn't trade all those years of control of Alcantara for a year of Span; if we move Alcantara, we can get better. Also I'm impressed with how Alcantara is taking to CF and not completely...

    Excellent. I assumed that's what it meant, but I did not want to celebrate until I was sure.

    I don't know man, I think players see the Cubs are on the rise and going to be a perennial contender soon and its facilities getting very nice upgrade. Also, the thought of being on the team that...

    I mean, I guess. We finish 83-79 and 5 games out of the wild card, sure I guess we're competing. I should have rephrased to I think we're around .500 next season who could sneak in to the playoff...

    I absolutely think we will be that last part. An around .500 team with a very tiny chance of making the playoffs, especially if we sign a pitcher this off-season.

    By competing I meant a legitimate...

    You really think the Cubs are going to compete next year? You're much more optimistic than I am and I hope you're right, I think we are the Astros currently next year (things coming together, but not...

    I don't think the Cubs trade for Hamels, period. They won't compete for the next two seasons (counting this one) and then you're stuck with 3 more years of post-prime Hamels at 20+ million.

    I think a portion of this is right, but those prospect bullets won't be moved until we're in the middle of a run. Otherwise it doesn't make much sense, not for a core player like the tenor of your...

    I don't know, I think if in the perfect situation where Baez, Russell, and Bryant pan out in the infield the best move is to deal Castro for pitching; however, that deal happens at next year's...

    Has signing Ubaldo/Santana for a one year deal been mentioned at all? Sign him to a 1/18 with both parties knowing he'll be traded to a contender at the deadline. The Cubs would lose their 2nd round...

    Ugh. I know we're going to be really bad this season. I know our window opens in 2015-2016. I'm a realist.

    But seeing that is just really depressing.

    Depends on which site you follow. I prefer GutGraphs, which has has it at 1 Eckstein to 2.8 Theriots (but doesn't factor in player height or jersey dirt, so you have to take it with some salt).

    Yeah, but isn't Passan kind of terrible? Also isn't this just more of what we've heard from Boras to attempt to "lure" the Cubs into spending frivolously?

    I was really excited too when I thought he could play second, but apparently he's only got 7 innings there career. Still, it's a low-risk, potential reward scenario though and I'm all for those.
