    How can you say he is being low balled? Do you know what the offer is? Do you know what he wants. Also, do you know when offers were made? Because I have seen things that suggest the Cubs offered...

    I agree with the last part of this. I hope he does well while he is a Cubs. It will only help us getting something better for him. But I disagree with everyone who thinks he is doing a good thing...

    Why good for Shark? If he really wanted to be honest he would say he wants as much as he can get because he cares about money. Not hide behind this bs about players after him. I would respect him...

    I just don't see the Sox letting Theo beat them out on Lester. With all animosity between them and Theo I doubt they let Lester get away to the Cubs.

    Why do people refuse to believe that due to the debt ratio and the money Ricketts has tied up on things the Cubs cannot spend right now. But, on the flip side, it may be as soon as next year as to...

    It's weird only if you do not follow Abe and realize he says a lot of things with conviction. And he is wrong just as often as he is right. So don't worry about why he says what he says. He does it...

    I agree that just because he isn't a #1 or #2 on some teams doesn't mean he isn't a #1 or #2 on others. However, the last 2 years are not that of a TOR starter. His performance before 3 good starts...

    Completely agree. AFTER THE ARB YEAR. I think that is where the confusion comes in. If Shark wants a 5 year deal now with an AAV of $18M that would mean he wants $90M over 5 year. Or one ARB year at...

    Let me be clear, I have no ill will towards Tanaka either. All I meant was if you are going to pull for anything when the Cubs play the Yankees and go against Tanaka, it would be that the Cubs beat...

    3 good starts to begin a season do not make up for 2 years of decent but hardly TOR pitching. He has performed like a solid middle of the rotation starter the past 2 years and if he wants TOR money,...

    Spite? For what? The man wanted to play in New York. What was Theo supposed to do? Offers were in then the agent went back to the Yankees for the last call. That tells me Tanaka wanted to be a...

    I would love to get Lester, but I just do not see that happening. I do not see Boston letting that happen. That is a very vindictive group over there. I can't see them letting Theo get Lester. I...

    If the Cubs are ready to compete, have money, and they can get Stanton for Baez, DEAL! Not now though. I think the basic premise of a team with money would be if they had a minor league talent that...

    All minor leaguers with high upside are potential superstars. Yet they get traded all the time. Like I said, now it won't be done, and I completely agree with that. And I also agree with you that a...

    I completely agree and I do so because of the Cubs current situation. AT THIS POINT it would be nuts for the Cubs to trade Baez. However, there is going to be a time when trading a stud, "legendary"...

    I agree. And don't forget Bryant would be in either left or right. But as you said, it is unlikely. And IMO Baez is not too legendary to trade. (Whatever that means) Maybe on this site with Cubs...

    I agree that it is silly to look back 6 years to then say the Cubs got ripped off in the Harden trade. That would be like saying the Cubs got ripped off when they traded for Sutcliffe because Joe...

    You know, maybe it is early and I am over optimistic but I am not hating this team. I honestly think it could win 72 to as much as 76 games this year. And if they do that along with getting a good...

    Like I said, we do not know exactly who wants what and when numbers were discussed. If you go back to before this deal, the Cubs are right in line with 14m a year average. 6m,10m , then 18m the next...

    See, to me it depends on exactly what is being said. Does Samardzija want an average of $18M+ over the next 5 years or does he want $18M+ after taking $10M next year? Next year is his last as a...

    Yes, however the draft was different then. Boston overpaid for any prospect that was a hard to sign guy. They also had extra picks on a regular basis. And those picks were when there was not a budget...
