    Check out Washington's infield depth chart. A LOT of IFs who could come back in a deal with a starting pitcher. I just have this weird feeling that Baez won't be a Cub and LaStella/Alcantara will...

    Kubitza--the guys they just got from Atlanta.
  4. What do you think about a trade for David Freese?...

    What do you think about a trade for David Freese? I can't imagine it would take TOO much since he hits free agency this year. Travis Wood and Victor Caratini?

    He would be a nice addition in the...

    Kinda weird, I actually went to high school with the girl who accused him of that. She had attempted to do the same thing to somebody else prior to that and stopped when it got to the point that...

    What about a crosstown trade?

    Cubs get: John Danks
    Sox get: Luis Valbuena & Pierce Johnson

    We could then swing a deal with the Astros, involving Wood and others, to land Fowler. I wouldn't...

    Well, we already have the Mr. October of pitchers (Lester). How about the Mr. October of batters (Delmon Young)?

    Joel Sherman tweeted that the National still want a 2B. They are dangling Clippard and Blevins. Think Valbuena could net one of them?

    I'm down for signing Melky and using the plethora of trade pieces to get a cost controlled pitcher from a team with offensive needs.

    But what will they do if he comes here? Does that mean we've been eliminated and we don't know?

    What is it that people don't want to come here? Lack of major league talent OR too much pressure?

    How fun will it be if the Cubs get Hamel and Hammels? Nothing will ever be spelled correctly. And then we sign Smardja again.

    Maybe they thought Doubront could do the job for cheaper?
  13. How about using Valbuena's value then? The...

    How about using Valbuena's value then? The Braves have A LOT of needs in that lineup right now (as do the Cubs). Valbuena, Hendricks, and Alcantara? Maybe another low-level high-upside spec in the...

    I want Justin Upton. He'll get a HUGE contract next offseason, I would like to trade for and extend him before that happens. What would it take?

    Upton and Gattis for Almora, Edwards, and...
  15. Do you guys think that Lester has the mentality...

    Do you guys think that Lester has the mentality of "If the Red Sox offer me 6/130 & the Cubs 6/135-140, I go to Boston because I've been there and won there?"

    What I'm saying is, how much higher...

    I was over Martin 2 hours after he signed in Toronto. I think there is more of a reaction because of the Cardinals' move than the loss of Martin. If your biggest rival is getting better and you're...

    Agreed. Taking the 2016 offseason approach puts too much pressure on the front office and could really force overspending. If they don't have solid pieces going into next offseason, we will have to...

    So, which team that hasn't been mentioned will swoop in and grab him? I'm guessing Mariners.

    But isn't it time to strike? It cannot be another middle of the rotation guy that we trade at the deadline, type of year. Especially if the "plan" is going to work. I know some people are playing...

    If we don't get Lester, consider me in panic mode. I don't want James Shields or Justin Masterson as consolation. Can't be consoled anymore, need to hit on an important piece.

    Unless, of course, they are getting Shark back or resigning Hammel. Then it would be a new catcher.

    If they don't start next year with Scherzer, Lester, or Hamels, they will have a lot of pressure next offseason to make sure they get a TORP. Two middle of the rotation guys could help them compete,...

    That's why it might be a good idea to make a swap of those contracts and fill other needs in the process.

    Dodgers: C & 2B (moving Gordon to SS)
    Cubs: LHR
