    I agree with a lot of what you say. And I would have no problem at all if they moved. However, for the reasons you said you would like to see them elsewhere, they will never leave. Wrigley is a cash...

    Actually I was being sarcastic. IMO they will be good before 2015. And god help us, they better be good by 2017.

    The one good think about sucking is losing a game like this really is not a big deal. Think how terrible we will feel in 2017 when they are good and lose a game like this. This loss is probably the...

    I completely agree. I think he is who he is. And that is a decent #3 starter(at worse). And for that, I would sign him long term. As you said, if he proves to be better than that he will get more...

    You wouldn't do $55M/5? Really? What is he worth in your mind? He is a decent pitcher. Fact is #3 pitchers are worth $10M to $13M these days.

    OK, we found common ground. Except how is $55M over 5 yrs an average of $11.5M a year? :)

    I agree with you Doogolas. You never did say one way or the other if you would resign him. But, I think that is because you are way high on what it will take. Now, I realize you think NO WAY Wood...

    I don't think he brings as much back as we would want. Signing him to a reasonable extension and expecting him to be a solid middle of the rotation starter would be a great value for me.

    There is NO WAY Wood gets close to 70m with 2 years left of control. You are way out of line with that salary. I doubt he would get that in free agency if he was a FA this year that had a draft pick...

    Davearm, actually someone else put those numbers out there and I agreed with him. 6m, 10m then 3 at 13m comes to 5/55. Dooglas never said it. And that is because he thinks wood will want and deserves...

    Nice problem to have. But it has been 4 starts. And even if he has a solid year that you are suggesting he will not get $10M in arb. I just think you are letting 4 starts fool you into thinking Wood...

    Ok, still not clear. Just making sure you understand that the next 2 years he is under Cubs control. Next year he should expect around $6M, even if he has a great year. The following year of control...

    Douglas, can you please clarify? Are you saying an average salary of at least $15M over the next 5 years, or are you saying once the team loses control of him he should get $15M a year. Big...

    If he expects $75M over 5 years, as you suggested, we should trade him. But I highly doubt he will cost within $15M of that amount. So, I agree, they shouldn't trade him. They should sign him to an...

    First of all, I had him getting right around $15M a year for the 3 years he is not under control. And the other scenario had him right at $13M. Now you say there is no chance he doesn't want $15M a...

    What is way more than $55M over 5 years? When you factor in he has 2 years of control left, what do you think he will get? Maybe $60M over 5? That would break down to $16M during his controlled years...

    Harper might be a better ball player, but I think Stanton is a better hitter. Plus Stanton could be available. I don't see Harper bring available for a long time.
