    So, the answer would be: this just all aligned perfectly. Got it.

    Do you think this all just kind of aligned perfectly or that Theo envisioned this opportunity when he started the rebuild? Let's say they put their sights on 2015 for two reasons:

    (1) Maybe the...

    I agree that the Cubs side is too much, but I like to err on the side of too much when it comes to proposals because I think a lot of times prospects are overvalued. In my initial idea, I had...

    Ok. The roster checks off every box you would want for a serious playoff contender. You lose controlled guys, but have the opportunity to keep Utley until he no longer gets 500 ABs and you get 4...

    July rolls around, Cubs are still near the top of the division and Russell has been called up. The Phillies come calling with a huge trade offer, what happens? (Assuming Neil Ramirez is out for...

    Sooooo, is LaStella playing LF or CF in this scenario? Sounds like there would be 9 players for 8 spots with Fowler in CF and Soler in LF? I would just assume Bryant would play LF and Soler would...

    I think we're all operating by the assumption that everything else goes "as planned" when we make these statements. If Schwarber's name can be mentioned with that assumption, why aren't Baez &...

    You have Olt, who could probably fill a DH role for one of the 14 other NL teams. With the other three, you use Alcantara's versatility to grab a SP in a trade. Like I said, I kind of contradicted...

    I actually thought of Vogelbach before Schwarber for some reason. Think of the increased value of Cubs prospects. There aren't teams in the NL with those type of bats...They could arguably just...

    The only thing I ask about Montero's spot is, why put an OBP guy in between strikeout guys? What good is a walk after and before nearly automatic strikeouts? If anything, have him higher, so he can...

    Add Soler to that picture and that has the POTENTIAL to be a great 3-6. Oh and then you have Castro, Schwarber, and Russell too. I'm excited.

    I meant moving forward I guess. I thought all along the assumption was they'd let him walk after this year with the QO. You can add him to the list of questions too.

    The biggest thing for the Cubs in this situation is CF.
    Has Albert Almora dropped that far?
    Should AA be considered a potential for CF moving forward?

    Don't we have guys right now who could potentially fill that spot? With the Nationals as the NL favorites, I can't imagine they'll trade Fister for cheap. Even though they have a 6th, the insurance...

    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...

    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...

    Cubs get: John Danks

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