    FYI Rays signed James Loney today, presumably to be their starting 1B. I don't see what the Cubs have that would net Olt outside of Shark or a proven-healthy Garza.

    kind of the same **** I did...but I could remember the posters name...I just didn't like him so I used his initials and I guess it was offensive how I used his abbreviated name and the word fairy (godmother) in a sentence.

    The bandaid has been on since 2011. They are taking it off very slowly and carefully.

    Not sure.

    They didn't take many risks. I would have preferred a bit risk, more potential upside, but whatever. I still want to see how the starting rotation turns out, or if they are done already.

    Posted in another thread:

    Went back and read last years Winter Meetings Thread- seems like ABTY and MB posted a helluva lot more last year than this. Considering ABTY had a mini blow up two nights ago and really hasn't posted much since and now people are stepping on MB toes who immediately brought up posting elsewhere, everyone needs to chill the f--k out and stop shooting the messenger. Been lurking the web for solid Cubs site for sometime- this one has potential to be great and it seems like not too long ago it almost was the best on the web. Sounds to me like the teet is starting to run dry- maybe we should stop over milking.

    It's December 6th, and most are already claiming the season to be set it stone. There are moves to be made still. What do we do with Garza? Soriano? Barney? Marmol? Vitters? Vogelbahch deal?Before we start to ***** about Theo not taking risks with more upside, let's understand the rationality of the moves given the current state of the team. Third base options are incredibly thin right now. Essentially Stewart might provide the most value, undoubtedly, given the price.

    Stewarts defense has trended upwards the last 3 years. His walk rate has been maintained over 10%. The true causality of his hitting demise was these bone spurs in his wrist, which have been removed. There is the possibility Stewart outplays his contract, monetarily, by 4x the value. That would make him an average player in terms of WAR. If it comes down to Stewart given another shot at the starting gig, I will be 100% fine with it given the weak market.

    There's still that nagging matter of him hitting awful in 2011 *before* he reported any pain in his wrist.
