    Sticky: Discussion: 2020 Chicago Cubs Offseason Thread

    I think Rizzo extends. I also think they should extend Contreras. Iím pretty convinced they could get more in a trade for Amaya than they could for Willy in this new version of baseball value.

    Jon Lester earned 16.6 fWAR as a Cub. Using $8 million per win that amounts to $132.8 million in value. The Cubs paid him about $145 million. I guess that signing wasnít a home run either.
