    In which case, the Cubs decline their side of the mutual option.
  2. If Soler is that good, would it be worth it to...

    If Soler is that good, would it be worth it to trade him in season? Or hope that he finishes the season and can be traded after the year? Below is a list of guys who might be attractive at the...
  3. That question is probably exactly why they're...

    That question is probably exactly why they're considering Fowler and staying put with Baez. Soler get's hurt, Heyward to RF and Baez to CF or just Zobrist to RF and Baez/La Stella to 2B.
  4. I could see him as a perfect 3-team trade...

    I could see him as a perfect 3-team trade candidate this year. I know they are hard to complete, but let's say he's pitching well up through July. The Cubs could find a match for him, and then flip...
  5. I like it because you cost-effectively add a...

    I like it because you cost-effectively add a power arm to the bullpen who might also be able to realize his potential as 2-3 pitcher. Hendricks is a 4-5--he can be replaced at a cheap price via FA....
  6. How realistic is this? I realize it's late in the...

    How realistic is this? I realize it's late in the off-season, but I'm wondering if this could be done. The trades would make the Cubs staff even deeper.

    Javier Baez, Dan Vogelbach, and Jen-Ho...
  7. Of all the contenders, he makes the most sense...

    Of all the contenders, he makes the most sense for the Mets. Sox have a full outfield without him, and I'm not sure how much of an upgrade he is over Eaton.
  8. Does this trade make sense, given the needs of...

    Does this trade make sense, given the needs of each team?

    Inciarte, Teheran, Aybar, Swisher to Cubs and Soler, Baez, Coghlan, and Hammel to Braves.

    Braves have a surplus of pitching prospects...
  9. Javier Baez, Dan Vogelbach, Neil Ramirez, and...

    Javier Baez, Dan Vogelbach, Neil Ramirez, and Duane Underwood for Desmond Jennings and Jake McGee
    Jorge Soler, CJ Edwards, and Pierce Johnson for Danny Salazar
    Jason Hammel for Jonathan Papelbon

    428 browsers just saw you guys get fooled by yet another fake Rosenthal account. Stop searching Heyward and just refresh your feed. I'm sure you follow the right people. No credit given here for...
  11. Depth move for now, I believe. Allows Cubs to use...

    Depth move for now, I believe. Allows Cubs to use him as Hammel replacement next year and possibly make Hendricks available. Also, in case Arrieta leaves. Would start 2016 in AAA. Never hurts to add...
  12. Poll: I'll be worried if they leave the Winter Meetings...

    I'll be worried if they leave the Winter Meetings without anything. Not worried yet.
  13. Poll: People don't like him as much because he's not a...

    People don't like him as much because he's not a new toy. He's one we've had and are possibly getting back. I think he would fit great as the #3.

    What if the Cubs added Hendricks in a trade?...
  14. Poll: Folty looks like another Arrieta-type...

    Folty looks like another Arrieta-type acquisition. He throws hard and has a good, athletic build. With help from Bosio, he could become a dominant pitcher.

    Let's not overrate Edwards and Almora at...
  15. Poll: What about trading with Atlanta, since they seem...

    What about trading with Atlanta, since they seem to be completely rebuilding. They are shopping pretty much "everybody but Freeman". They have traded for a surplus of controllable pitching and seem...
  16. Poll: Is Vogelbach rule 5 eligible this year?

    Is Vogelbach rule 5 eligible this year?
  17. Poll: More fitting trade would be Soler & Contreras for...

    More fitting trade would be Soler & Contreras for Melky & Quintana. I think that's fair for each side.

    We can wait with Miggy and make Salvador Perez a Cub in 2018.

    Sign Heyward. Sign...
  18. Poll: Wouldn't the magic number be 10? I saw Jesse...

    Wouldn't the magic number be 10? I saw Jesse Rogers tweeted that in the case of a tie, there wouldn't be a game 163--they would just use the head-to-head season match-up as the determining factor....
  19. That's why I said "let him walk" about Fowler. ...

    That's why I said "let him walk" about Fowler. Span will be 32, so he'll probably be looking for 3+ years, but what's realistic for him? If they go high for 1 year, he might be inclined. If...
  20. I look at it this way: Castro is owed ~$41.5 if...

    I look at it this way: Castro is owed ~$41.5 if they buy him out at the end. Shields is owed $65 if they buy him out. They get a starter for ~$24 mil and can still spend in FA because they would...
  21. So just like I said before the deadline, if they...

    So just like I said before the deadline, if they choose, they can now trade him for Shields. It would be interesting if the Giants can manage to sweep the Cards and the Cubs get a few from the...
  22. Back on 7/30. Do I get Marlin or ABTY love now?

    Back on 7/30. Do I get Marlin or ABTY love now?
  23. Correct me if I'm wrong, the assumption is...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, the assumption is Shields won't be claimed. IF he's not claimed, he may be traded to any team. At that point, you get to negotiate a trade--but the player traded can't be...
  24. LOL true, but nobody here predicted Tommy Hunter...

    LOL true, but nobody here predicted Tommy Hunter and Dan Haren, so we're all clueless. Maybe they see how Haren works out for a little while then pull the trigger if his luck disappears.

    I just...

    Maybe they claim Shields and trade Starlin straight up. :shrug:
