    Hindsight, I know. But I can't stop looking and Cashner updates and thinking "what if?" Think about the state of the rebuild if the Cubs kept Cashner, and threw a boatload of cash at both Abreu &...

    BTW, just looking through prospects, it looks like the Cardinals got the right Petrick brother.

    Was there any follow up to Levine's write up about Toronto? I saw discussion on Stroman, but is Sanchez a possibility? What about a guy like Gose? Not sure if they're willing to pull the plug on him...

    How do you "bloom" when you're being platooned? Platoon Valbuena with Barney and let an actual prospect get the ABs he needs. Valbuena at least adds a power potential to 2B.

    Any chance the Cubs take a chance on Tommy Hanson and let him try to recover in Triple-A?

    It's a leverage thing. The Indians will realize that they'll lose him and will pony up. We'll start the offseason with James Shields as the big prize.

    This. With the caveat that Alcantara would quite possibly be ready to land a starting 2B job somewhere. It's just wayyyy too much to give up for a single pitching prospect.

    Most on here would hate it because they overvalue Cubs prospects. Again, consider the main point.

    I think they are literally built for this year. JJ, Markakis, Cruz could be gone after this year. That leaves their lineup with three holes. You would assume Gausman could step into the rotation and...

    There could obviously be more coming back from Baltimore, I'm just specifying that they probably won't have to get rid of the 4 (or 5 with Edwards included) to net a good return.

    Next offseason might be on to start selling/buying. The market is weak, but we may be stocked with resources. Olt, Vogelbach, Alcantara, P. Johnson, Hendricks, Candelerio should net a pretty decent...

    Gonna really have to draft well and make trades because it's not a given that a top FA is just going to sign here.

    Depending on if you have a keeper league, I picked Baez & Syndergaard late hoping to lock them up for a few years if they come up and perform.

    As for sleepers, I took Moustakas, Ackley, and...

    I'm not saying they need a really big signing to attract another. They need a couple pretty good ones that give the MLB club a chance.

    Cano went there because they were the only team insane enough to make that deal. When money is all even, there is a reason he didn't choose Chicago. If he didn't choose it because of location, FIND a...

    Time to put something attractive on the field to entice big names to come here instead of one year, trade-at-the-deadline signings. Playing with Luis Valbuena and Darwin Barney doesn't attract me....

    I know Ichiro never has been too fond of Wrigley Field, but with the surplus of outfielders in New York, is it plausible that the Cubs make a play for him to help lure Tanaka in? If Schierholtz is...

    I don't want to make too much of the Wesley Wright signing, but does the move suggest that Russell may be part of a bigger deal or just bullpen depth?
