    Sticky: Moncada is the Cubs is one of the Cubs last...

    Moncada is the Cubs is one of the Cubs last chances to get an elite (top 10 talent) for sure. I don't think money will be a factor. The fact that it isn't a factor for the Yankees, Red Sox and...

    Sticky: 2015 Minor League Thread 1.0

    Hiring Parks doesn't make the prospect top 100 lists any more valid. It means they liked the job that Parks did.

    I would wager a large amount of money that the Cubs internal list has Almora...

    Loup had a xFIP of 3.92 last year. He's groundball pitch which is good, but his BB% jumped and his K% isn't overwhelming. I'm not too concerned if they don't have a lot of experience pitching out...

    That is closer, but I'm not sure the Cubs would view Loup as a big enough upgrade over Wada/Doubrount/Ortiz/Wood/Rosscup to weaken the right side of the pen.

    I think if he gets cleared before spring training it will be very difficult for the Cubs to outbid the Yankees or Red Sox by enough to get him to waste basically a 1 year of development to sign for...

    It would be a nice thing if Gov. Ricketts could get the 2 senators from Nebraska to put pressure on OFAC to not clear Moncada for a while.

    I don't think the Cubs would trade Ramirez or Grimm...

    They had an interview with Straily where he blamed the velocity drop on a change in arm slot and weakness in his shoulder. He claims the shoulder weakness is gone and there was no structural damage.

    There is website where you can overlay outfield dimensions on various parks. When you overlay Coors on Wrigley, Coors Left center fence touches Waveland.

    It isn't just Wrigley being smaller...

    If he gets his velocity back he could be pretty decent. Maybe they saw something in his delivery they think they can fix or he's over an injury. My guess is the velocity isn't coming back or the...

    Sticky: 2015 Off-Season Discussion

    They are included the 35% trade pre players. If you remove similar players from the Astros Lunhows contributions can be boiled down to Correa and Appel and a bunch of guys at the bottom of their top...

    I'm just comparing them to when Epstein took over the Cubs. The Astros began selling off in 2011 as well.
  14. Cubs Offseason FA and Trade Thread v6.0 (Offseason homestretch before ST)

    If I said the Cubs did a better with reading their assets it would have nothing to do with the Cubs being better at targeting players than the Astros. That couldn't explain it at all.

    In 2013 off season they spent $16 million on Chad Qualls and Scott Feldman.

    2012 they cut payroll down to $26 million or less than what the national TV contract pays. Chances are good they...
  19. Cubs Offseason FA and Trade Thread v6.0 (Offseason homestretch before ST)

    They signed Feldman for $10 million even with their TV contract being messed up. They had enough money to sign x free agent for $5-6 million and try and trade him at the deadline. The Cubs had...

    Why do I have to take out the sign and flips. The Astros had enough money to sign Feldman for $10 million per year. They easily could have signed the year before for less. Signing and flipping is...
  21. The Astros are rumored to have a hard time...

    The Astros are rumored to have a hard time getting players to take their money unless it is a huge overpay. It isn't just Bryant. In the Rule 5 draft the Astros took Fields and the Cubs took...
  22. It isn't so much about how the Cubs valued Bryant...

    It isn't so much about how the Cubs valued Bryant vs Appel. It is that Bryant so far has been a much better choice than Appel and the Cubs system would be viewed much differently if you swapped...

    What would the Cubs/Astros system look like if Appel and Bryant where to switch teams? Doesn't improved scouting help in targeting players in trades and signing people to filp? The Cubs farm system...
