    Yeah it's a strong regular season rotation. But it's questionable to be deep enough for a strong postseason rotation. I love a veteran like Lackey in one of those spots. But don't trust Hendricks or...

    If we were going to get good Hammel. Well I don't think the Cubs would be looking for two starters this off season. Theo made sure to mention his injury as a excuse for the poor pitching to keep his...

    This, the main problem with this team is the young hitters just aren't hitting enough. So what do people want Theo to do? Make trades to replace inconsistent Bryant, Soler, Russell and Castro? Then...

    It was a fine deadline, because it gives the team a chance. Not making bigger moves had nothing to do with Rizzo, Arrieta, Hammels and not thinking there good enough. It had more to do with the team...

    At the end of the day he's probably not better than Wada. I fully expect his ERA to balloon to over 4 by the end of the season. But he will have his share of quality starts pitching into the 6th or...

    I wonder if I'm the only one who is hoping the Cubs can get Julio Teheran instead of Tyson Ross. I know Teheran is having a bad year. But I like that he's 24 and under club control until 2020. I'd...

    First of all you can't sell off players when your in the middle of contention. That sends a horrible message to your fan-base. Especially to a fan-base you asked to accept losing for a number of...

    This, the team has a lot of holes and only have so much cap space and so many draft picks. But if you add a few difference makers and some decent players. Along with some in-house improvements. It...

    It sounds like if the Bears get Parker/Foster signed today. They will use most of there remaining cap space. So any other moves(besides veterans on the cheap) will have to come in trades or through...

    I don't know much about Parker. But I read he graded out poorly on PFF last season. So I was just curious why everyone wants him lol.

    Good signing! The Bears still have plenty of work to do and who knows what there schedule will be like. But I have a feeling this team will be pretty decent next year and have a chance at at 9-7 type...

    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...
