That's super silly.
I think we'll probably sign choo. There were rumors during the season that we would be interested in him, and we either missed or didnt try on Ellsbury. I would probably prefer Granderson over Choo...
But, dude, he guaranteed it.
Meh, that 2007 team had no business in the playoffs to begin with and the 2008 team ran face first into Manny Ramirez. Ted Lilly was the man, I'm in favor of a statue out front of Wrigley depicting...
Well of course you can. You just can't do so and then continue to be taken seriously.
This is a post about the 2013 playoff race, the Cubs minor league system doesnt matter one bit. The cubs are gonna wind up with the 3rd or 4th draft pick.Theyre an awful team.
This is the dumbest post in the history of dumb posts.
He certainly went about it a way. I don't know if I'd call it the right way.
Sign Matt Garza
Sign/trade for best available bullpen arm
Trade for best available middle infielder if Zobrist is unavailable or we miss on him
I thought Lincoln gave that to him :confused:
"I liked him when he only ripped on the Cardinals and their players. Now he targets the Cubs? Screw him! :O"
...I agree, though.
You could use shark as the centerpiece of a deal for Delgado and Teheren. The dude even said it would probably take more in his post.
Calm down, buddy.
And Starlin is a top major league shortstop signed to a long term, team friendly contract. Bauer would make a great piece in a Castro trade, but you'd need to get one more top prospect and 2 low-A...
Because there is nothing to be upset about. At all.
If we use Baez+ to land a young outfielder (we'll call him Upton), and at the trade deadline or next offseason use Almora+ to get a top end starter, and sign the other Upton as a FA, would Upton,...
Are you familiar with the fact that prospects can be traded?
That's a special kind of wrong right there.
One of the 609 career home runs he hit convinced me, I can't remember which one though.
Holy god, he's been with us for 8 years already?
Does it really hurt their trade value, though? They're both still very young going into next season, and you don't have to look any further than Rizzo to find an example of a player turning it around...
I can see him with a similar career to derrek lee. so, no.
Yeah, I knew that there had to be some sort of reason why contracts were never frontloaded. I still wish we could :/
Any word on what the money breakdown would be? I still think a frontloaded deal is an awesome idea. Pay him 15 million next year and then when we're competing and we need some room for our salary...
Severely frontload it. 15, 14, 8, 6, 4.
That's 5 years 47 million, but by the time we're competing we're only paying him 8 million a year, we can pay him big now while the rest of the team...
