    Yes this trade makes them competitive and gives them a chance to make the playoffs. Now they are counting on young players to do well and if a few don't then they won't win. But it's worth the risk...

    Nobody is going to pick the Cubs to go 73 wins, to beating those teams. But if you actually compare the rosters on paper. Well basically if even two of Bryant, Soler, Baez or Alcantara have OPS...

    Maybe, maybe not. But in this line-up with basically three rookies starting. They will want him batting 5th or 6th this year, I'm betting on that. Plus unless Coghlan/Denorfia totally fall on their...

    I disagree, sure it might be overrated. But I do think guys are often pitched differently or more carefully depending on who's batting behind them and the situation. Especially when young hitters who...

    For Fowler to move to LF. Coghlan/Denorfia platoon is going to have to struggle for a month plus. Followed by Alcantara hitting really well in his starts. Cubs got Fowler for CF, so obviously they...

    Is that you Joe Maddon LOL? Castro is a 750-770 OPS type of hitter, hopefully Bryant/Soler is higher then that. Now as rookies I don't expect them to be 850-900 OPS guys, but I think they can be in...

    Love this trade, Fowler OBP is exactly what the team needs at the top of the order. I know his defense isn't anything special. But playing in smaller ballpark in Wrigley will help that and I'm sure...

    Unless the Cubs can pull off some deal to get rid of him, which seems unlikely right now. My guess is they will go to spring training with him and give him one last chance. If he isn't pitching...

    My guess is the team will add 1-2 outfielders(if they get two they will trade away Ruggiano) and a cheap veteran lefty out of the pen. Other then that they're probably done and will just sign guys to...

    From everything I've heard there set in the rotation for this season at least. Next off season I'm sure they will be in on guys like Zimmerman, Price and such. Theo said at the start of the off...

    Revere has a career 321 OBP and Aoki has a career 353 OBP. Hitting in front of Castro, Rizzo, Bryant, Soler. I rather have a guy who can get on base. Then a extra 20 something SB.

    He is too a team that has 7 other guys who have pop and strike out a ton. If he had more power that would be great. But this team needs someone who can get on base at the top of the line up and who...

    Yes 3 points higher in 100 PA less and having a 337 BABIP. Aoki has put up his numbers in three straight seasons. Coglhan had a good 3-4 months after sucking for a number of years. So that tells us...

    He was a CF in Japan, likely blocked by Carlos Gomez and Lorenzo Cain for that spot in the majors. Point is he would be a starter if the Cubs signed him LF or CF. He's exactly the type of player Theo...

    He played center in Japan. I always figured he became a RF, because the Brewers had Carlos Gomez and Royals Lorenzo Cain in CF.
  16. Yep he's a contact hitting guy who gets on base...

    Yep he's a contact hitting guy who gets on base and can bat at the top of the order. Personally I'd see if they could trade for Dexter Fowler first. As long as the Astros don't want any real talent...

    Aoki would be a starter for us and probably bat lead off. He's the type of player Theo said the Cubs are looking for. Since he can get on base at a 350 rate and doesn't strike out a lot. My guess is...

    Great signing! With how quickly relievers can go bad, you can never have enough talented arms. For all we know Strop or Ramirez might struggle this season. Even though Motte velocity was down it was...

    I kind of like Rasmus talent. But I don't think he's a good fit for this team. How is this team expected to have a good offense, if they have nobody who can get on base at the top of the order? How...

    If Alcantara struggles again. They could do a lot worse then Ruggiano/Sweeney hitting 7th or 8th. My guess is they will start the year with Alcantara and Baez at CF and 2b. With having the options of...

    I wouldn't hate that. But the Cubs really need a guy to get on base at the top of the order. Castro, Rizzo, Bryant, Soler and Montero should be fine 2-6. But they need one more guy who can get on...

    Theo/Jed are too smart to give a player 15 million per year. Who stinks defensivly and only walks 30-40 times a year. While carrying a career 415 slugging percentage. Heck you can probably get Alex...

    I don't think they will get both guys either. My guess is they sign Lester and then trade for a solid number 3 starter. Maybe swap Travis Wood and solid prospect for a number three type guy. Then...

    True, but if you get Allen you basically DNP Snell on most nights then. I think the Bulls are hoping for Snell to show a lot of improvement this year and will wanna give him that chance.

    Well there are going to be times this season. When teams try to put bigger players on Rose defensivly like Lebron, Paul George or double teams and such. So in that situation they will want Hinrich to...
