    This might not last enough time before being deleted...please keep all of the whining and rebuild bashing in this thread. If it's not deleted we can keep the Free agent and trades discussion free of BS.

    So it seems like the Phil Hughes market is picking up. That's got to be the last mid-tier FA pitcher left, right?

    Ha yeah I was kind of joking about that, but man Im 32 and just so sick of the losing. To me it just doesn't seem like there is much sense of urgency with this ballclub. I understand you have to be patient right now but as a Cubbie fan its just so frustrating when this team is already in a big hole by June. In my opinion, when Theo took the job I figured 2 awful losing seasons is appropriate while he gets rid of the deadweight but I would of figured also that by his 3rd year that he should at least be fielding a .500 ball club. Theo's the right man for the job, don't get me wrong, Im just saying I expect more progress going into the 2014 season. Maybe he will sign some guys that will help for the future but maybe not and that would be disappointing. So I guess people can call that piss and moaning but for me its more a level of frustration.

    No. If you want rainbows and unicorns go tho the fapfests known as Cubs Den or Bleacher Nation.

    Or any other thread on this forum.

    90? Only 90 losses is still a year or two away. And it's going to be like Mardi Gras around here when it happens.

    When we get to the oh-so-exciting future that people are breathlessly drooling over, there's a good chance people are going to be quite disappointed (or at least, they'll have to retcon their expectations yet again to pretend that everything is great).

    We're not going to be terrible forever, but we don't look poised to go on a Boston-type run of 6 playoffs in 8 years either. There's too many other talented teams in the division run by smart teams, and every year that goes by the utility of our market size becomes less important.

    The long-term prognosis for this plan is something like five years of awful followed by making the playoffs four or five times in a 10-year span.
