    Sticky: Discussion: 2020 Chicago Cubs Offseason Thread

    Iím talking about reducing payroll by $80-100 mil year over year.

    The threshold is irrelevant for 20 or so teams. Mlb doesnít have the level of revenue sharing as the NFL. This isnít a salary cap...

    I said they went years when they were winning when they didnít add anyone. I didnít say they never added anyone.

    Nope. The Ricketts said the payrolls prior to Theo were ďunsustainable.Ē The tanking was going to happen no matter who got Theoís job. It just would have been done worse if basically anyone else got...

    Iím not going to be ignorant and act like the Cubs tanking twice in a decade is acceptable.
