    You'd think it would. Yeah. I dont think Texas works. KB trades are weird to think of.

    Funny, I said at the outset of the off-season I thought the Cubs would deal Bryant and then try to sign...

    Josh Jung is a fun prospect. Sam Huff is very iffy though. He has crazy power potential. And tons of swing and miss. He's already pushing 30% K% in A ball.

    The team fell apart for a lot of reasons. Baez not being there definitely didn't help in any way shape or form. But really they fall apart in the last week alone. They were keeping their head...

    Baez didn't have THAT great of a year. He missed a full month. He was worth the 30th most fWAR. His wRC+ was outside of the top-60.

    He had a good year. But pump the breaks. I'm not sure he...

    I don't disagree that "everyone" is greedy in the sense that they are looking for the most of the pie they can get. You can say this about literally every employer/employee relationship.

    But I...

    Bingo. Almost no downside.

    If he returns as a useful MLB arm the Cubs win. If he doesn't they're out almost nothing. Easily risk is worth the reward there.

    Nothing has suggested Bryant wouldn't sign here. The Cubs would be foolish to not want to keep Bryant.

    All of the first part is just fan conjencture.

    Those players are not "way better" than Bryant. Arrenado and Bryant have been almost equal on fWAR since Bryant entered the league. Rendon had an amazing season but has never been this good. ...

    He's done that plenty. I'm not overly worried.

    The Cubs should be able to keep Bryant. They shouldn't be in this boat. That they are, is pretty disappointing.

    He's had some injuries. But both years before the injuries he was the same player. As per my post, I said when healthy.

    I'm not worried. Healthy Bryant is a beast. Selling on him now would...

    That's such an asinine response. FG had him ranked the 25th most valuable player in the league in a trade. So let's pump the brakes.

    He's easily a top-5 player at his position. He's probably...

    Point is, there's literally nothing wrong with it and it's a possibility. I have a feeling the Cubs will not have a "leadoff hitter" again next year and it will once...

    There are literally statistics that show optimal lineup construction. It's not subjective.

    In the end, the actual order doesn't matter much. Just that your best hitters are getting the most PAs...

    Inciarte's defense is not guaranteed. It's likely to fall off. And without a lot of warning.

    It already saw decent hits last year.

    Just because teams have allowed him to hit leadoff, doesn't make him a good option there. There are plenty of "leadoff hitters" who get to hit leadoff who have no business doing it. He's a bad...

    Not sure Contreras makes any sense for them. He's controlled but about to hit arb.

    I also have no interest in Salvador Perez.
