That's not how it works. When you spend that much it is usually on a quality talent. That quality talent will, by the will of Jah, be allowed to live and work for more than just one year for the Cubs. It's an extreme dramatization.spending 120+mill to be average is not smart.
Also produced Garza (via trade), Castro (somewhat of a big deal), Barney, Soto at the time, Russell, Marmol, landed Rizzo with it's top pitching prospect...Those 101 losses were greatly facilitated by the FO's inactivity, arguably more so than the farm system's inability to pump out the sure fire HOFers Theo is guaranteed to put out.and that "strong" farm system you said we had when Theo came produced 101 losses... so theres that.
