    I think this sounds a lot worse than it is when you remember that they basically had starters in every position already signed to big deals before 2017 or they were in house developed talent.

    Bizarre to use what little money they do have on such a bum.

    Hell there must be someone in Iowa or any minor league free agent who can do what Romaine will do for cheaper.

    I meant it more in the context of the money faucet was being shut off after 2019. If Theo and Co. knew that the money would stop flowing then it makes no sense to lock up the remaining money you do...

    Shocking that Theo left when he did, I bet he even forfeited a decent chunk of his salary to get out of this mess.

    I think the biggest signing since Kimbrel (which, in hindsight, is an inexcusable deal).

    It also probably sucks up most of our money for signings this year.

    What's even crazier is I bet Jon would have taken less than that to stay in Chicago and not have to move his family for a year. I'm not saying he'd take a lot less or anything, but I'm sure he'd have...

    Wow. I mean, it's kind of what we figured but wow. Two thoughts:

    I really wonder what happens with Lazor, if he's "retained" would he just end up resigning? Dude doesn't seem happy working with Nagy at all.

    Yeah, Pace's problem isn't that he's not willing to admit when he's wrong, he's just very often not capable of being right.

    0 for 3 at the QB position and he's getting another shot, it's insane. ...

    I do think there's something to the idea that the Cubs waited too long to sell players. Theo himself admitted they bet on players too long.

    I do agree with your general point though. This is the...

    I know Boog is a big name and a good national broadcaster but I was hoping the Cubs went in a different direction. I'd like to have someone younger who could grow into the role and become another...

    I wish my dad was rich so I could run the Cubs too. These guys are just people born with a silver spoon in their mouths with no clue how to run an actual business.

    Jed was an insider who was picked because he wouldn't rock the boat. Sure he's got a great resume and with the right tools I'm sure he'd do a fine job.

    They should really just say it at this point.

    Them lying to us for the past few months about the direction of the franchise achieves nothing.
