    All I want for Christmas is for Tom Ricketts to hand Edwin Jackson $22 million and a one way plane ticket.
  2. Sticky: I hope the check doesn't bounce.

    I hope the check doesn't bounce.

    Woulda been nice if they struck a deal with CSN til the rest of the games were up in 2019, just so they were all on one channel.

    Have the Shields rumors started yet? Is he still an option?

    Can we create like a master list of all the position players that both A) are good and B) have a reasonable chance of getting traded?
  6. Poll: Yankees beat writer, telling us what we suspected.

    Yankees beat writer, telling us what we suspected.
  7. Poll: **** that. I cannot stand salary caps and...

    **** that. I cannot stand salary caps and artificially limiting what players can make. If you limit what the players make, you're just giving a larger percentage of revenue to owners. Why should they...
  8. Man, I hope it takes awhile for him to be...

    Man, I hope it takes awhile for him to be declared a FA. It's much easier to convince him to wait a month or two than wait six.

    Actually I think he and his agent are just going to negotiate with...

    Probably not a massive gain in terms of wins acquired through managerial decisions/influence, but it's the type of hire where we may not be able to measure his impact because of the effects he has on...
  10. Probably just a depth move.

    Probably just a depth move.

    They'd fit right in with the Chicago bloggers!



    Plus Buster Olney handicapped it as Cubs 1, Red Sox 2. You gotta put some weight behind that. While nobody, maybe not even Lester himself, knows...

    I'd take Grandal over Alcantara straight up, and I love Mendy. To me, Schwarber is a non-factor in what the Cubs do at Catcher this offseason. The combination of the time it'll take for him to reach...

    170 users browsing this thread. It's 11:30 in Chicago. Are there new rumors or what?

    We gotta pass the time while waiting for Lester to sign. Nothing going on at the moment.

    Just a guess but I'm betting Lester signs with the Red Sox within two weeks, then the Shields talk amps up...

    I am the 5%. Watching Manny in LF would be the most fun I've had watching baseball since 2008.
  16. Is there any evidence to support this? Abreu...

    Is there any evidence to support this? Abreu *just* signed an incredibly team friendly deal for the player he turned out to be. Cubans are making more money, but by no means has the market...

    Found this while I was going through Kaplan's tweets about Lester. First I've heard of any medical issues with Scherzer.

    Nah, his 2013 and arguably his 2012 were both better than his 2014. While a lot of the difference in numbers was due to BABIP luck, his peripherals were still worse this year than in previous years....

    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.
