    Options are years. The Cubs burned nothing. Once players hit certain ages they lose an option year regardless. Alzoloay will burn a year this year no matter what. In an option year they can move...

    A good example of what I'm talking about is Christopher Morel. He's been an IFA signing, and a guy who's been on prospect radars since 2017. He had to be picked on the 40 man because he was Rule V...

    I mean, they're MLB prospects. If guys are 18 or 19, three years would make them be 21 now. That's still super young for prospects. 21 year olds are young for AA. Now add in missing a full year...

    I don't think that's a correct statement. The Cubs minor league system hasn't taken the field for 1.5 years in most cases. Most of the talent the Cubs have had has been in the low minors, and there...

    Already happened this year. You can see it resulted in the stats. League wOBA is down from .320 to .312. HR/FB% down from 14.8% to 13.5%. BABIP is down 10% too. There has also been a .3 spike in...

    If the Cubs trade Bryant, Baez, Rizzo...etc they're not going to care what warm body takes their place. Matt Duffy will be a fine replacement for a Cubs team trading Bryant because that's the white...

    It's very early. The Cubs as a team have an wRC+ similar to Tony Wolter's career (the worst hitter in the league, literally) so far. It'd be the worst wRC+ of any team in history by leaps and...

    Burnes straight up is likely a top 5 SP in baseball right now. Hes disgustingly good.

    Options are years. His option would be expiring at the end of this season anyways. So they might as well use it. He will lose it either way.

    They can bring him up as many times as they choose....

    The DH rule is dumb. The end goal of the DH rule should be to put your best talents, in the best positions, and to make the game more interesting as a whole. That rule takes guys like Nelson Cruz...

    I don't think that's an overreaction. It sucks right now. I think it'll get better; there's no way they're THIS bad offensively. But it still sucks now.

    You do realize he's going to be the Cubs play by play announcer for multiple years and that the Cubs aren't going to be this frustrating forever, right? Hell the Cubs haven't even been as bad as the...

    The more he does Cubs games and the more he becomes ingrained in great Cubs moments the more he'll become synonymous with the Cubs. It'll just take...

    In another year maybe. But there's a reason multi-year contracts were not being moved and it's because of the expansion draft.

    It shouldn't be surprising teams were unwilling to **** with...

    This was anything but a sellers market. Teams are all panicked by who they can and cannot protect for the draft, some players have NMCs (like Giroux). No one is looking to take on big time...

    In my best "at least there's this..." moment, the Cubs had 2 pitchers they have worked hard to develop for years come out and pitch well. Alzolay was great until the 6th, Steele pitched well. There...

    I fail to see how this is a Ross issue. The team didn't hit. Albert was great then petered out a bit (hard to blame him for not have a super quick hook when you consider the "next step options"). ...

    People felt the same way with Len at first too. Boog has to warm up to the Cubs as much as the Cubs fans have to warm up to Boog. Remember, he has no day to day connection with the team yet, the...

    A 65 wRC+ for a full season would be the worst hitting team of all time levels by leaps and bounds. This is exactly why everyone should relax a bit on the hyperbole. Yeah, I get it, it's been a...

    I would say it's not too early to compare 2020 to 2012. The 2012 team didn't have anyone near as good as Bryant, Hendricks, Kimbrel, Baez...I know they've gotten off to a somewhat rough start. but...

    Or 2009? Or 2013?

    This is not a particularly good Cubs team. It'll get worse when they trade guys off. It may be a 75 win team at the end of things. But this isn't the worst Cubs team in the...
