What is your opinion on the Theo's Cubs Rebuild? (Non Cubs fans)
To me, they have to spend a little money to show they're serious. Every team can rebuild but if you're not willing to shell out a few big contracts, you're not as scary.
If they can sign Scherzer/Shields/Lester + Masterson/Ervin Santana/McCarthy/Vogelsong even and trade Castro/Russell/Baez for a prospect such as Syndegard (since the rumors are so prevalent.) or another couple of pitching prospects. Or even trade for Cole Hamels.
The pieces are there but IMO their offense has too much bust potential for me to put stock in them. (Baez, inconsistent hitting of Castro, I even hear Alcantara has high bust potential as well.) For all we know, Bryant can be the next Brandon Wood (if that is his name)
I don't know but maybe it's just because I don't value prospects as much as the next guy. I think there's plenty of potential for their prospects to take them far on their own but the team needs veteran, proven, major league talent more.
If Trump can become president with no political background then I don't understand why I need a resumé
