    If they’re going to halfass it in 2020, trading Darvish isn’t an outrageous thing to consider.
  2. Sticky: Discussion: Morrow as a guy is worth a shot. Morrow as the...

    Morrow as a guy is worth a shot. Morrow as the guy is/was a tough sell.

    I think Kintzler is a free agent.

    I knew there had to be a reason they kept Almora around.
  5. Sticky: Discussion: Probably not.

    Probably not.
  6. Sticky: Discussion: Big loss for Doosan.

    Big loss for Doosan.
  7. Sticky: Discussion: Is there a Castellanos out there for 2020? A guy,...

    Is there a Castellanos out there for 2020? A guy, a good player if not a star, who’s a free agent at the end of 2020 on a bad team? A team like last year’s Tigers who knew that sucked and had no...

    Supply and demand. There just aren’t that many really good starting pitchers.
  9. Sticky: Discussion: He was actually trending in the wrong direction...

    He was actually trending in the wrong direction until the Astros got hold of him.
  10. Sticky: Discussion: Sometimes no news is good news.

    Sometimes no news is good news.
  11. Sticky: Discussion: With a sense of urgency.

    With a sense of urgency.
  12. Sticky: Discussion: The biggest issue with Eloy isn’t that he isn’t...

    The biggest issue with Eloy isn’t that he isn’t on the Cubs. It’s that they didn’t maximize the value on this particular asset.
  13. Sticky: Discussion: First off, context. I was replying to a comment...

    First off, context. I was replying to a comment hyping the system at the current moment, not five years ago.
    And it is difficult to maintain both a contender and a system. But not impossible. Look...
  14. Sticky: Discussion: They may be “terrible” but they still would have...

    They may be “terrible” but they still would have been the top ranked prospects in the Cubs system at the start of 2019.
  15. Sticky: Discussion: And we’re looking to trade Bryant and Contreras...

    And we’re looking to trade Bryant and Contreras for “cheap, controllable assets”
    Why? Because the Cubs are getting no cheap, controllable production from the system. Well that and some atrocious...
  16. Sticky: Discussion: The Yankees were also ahead of the curve in...

    The Yankees were also ahead of the curve in realizing teams would pay a ransom for guys who pitch one inning a game for 70 games a season. And they cashed in and sped up a retool.
    Do the Cubs have...
  17. Sticky: Discussion: Until the system contributes anything, anything...

    Until the system contributes anything, anything at all, to the Major League roster, either on the field or in trades, it’s just noise.
  18. Sticky: Discussion: Part of Rizzo getting kind of overlooked is...

    Part of Rizzo getting kind of overlooked is probably due to the Nats, prior to this year, never won a playoff series.
    But they have done a real good job of keeping the pipeline flowing. Many want to...
  19. Sticky: Discussion: Telling Cubs fans that believe Heyward can be...

    Telling Cubs fans that believe Heyward can be moved that it ain’t gonna happen is like telling a kid there is no Santa.
    You see the hope and wonderment fade from their eyes. Kinda breaks your...
  20. Sticky: Discussion: There’s a better understanding now more than ever...

    There’s a better understanding now more than ever of what makes/made a productive player.
    That’s why Santo and Simmons finally got in. It wasn’t their fault voters of the past were pretty ignorant.
  21. Sticky: Discussion: There’s plenty of blame to go around. The fact...

    There’s plenty of blame to go around. The fact that they’ve gotten practically zero contributions from the system the past 3-4 years may be the biggest sin.

    Yeah. Always found him to be somewhat odd. Just throws crap out there, not really “insider” stuff.

    I absolutely would not have minded a new stadium. But have to give the Cubs/Ricketts credit. The ballpark is sooo much better than it was just 8-10 years ago. They can only do so much with the tiny...
