    Good stuff from Sharma today on newly drafted arms on The Athletic. TL;DR version below:

    Cade Horton:
    - Already been in the pitch lab. Team working on adding a spike curve and changeup next...
  2. Sticky: :laugh2:

    :laugh2:

    Couldn't disagree more.

    1. We can both see what we have prospect wise while also adding free agents. Most of our prospects are years away, and the ones who aren't can force the issue. The...
  4. Sticky: Read my last line again. There's no such thing...

    Read my last line again. There's no such thing as a bad one year deal. I'm not going to go through the entire thread, but I'm nearly 100% certain I've never said I'd pay 1/$20m for Cody...

    More so, the article in question links to a random article, where Bowden just lists like 15 people the Cubs could target.

    It's everything. You just don't give guaranteed 2nd years to players who are undeserving of 2nd years. Keirmaier is not someone who's earned guaranteed commitments like that. He's coming off a...

    Wouldn't do that either. Saving $2m either year isn't an issue. It's that he isn't good enough to be locked into a 2nd year based on injury and age at this point. One year max.

    That's a clear strawman; no one has suggested the Cubs pay $300m to Rondon. What people have said is that for the Cubs, the only way you sign impactful free agents is to usually add a bit more than...
  9. Sticky: Yeah. 3/$60m is not a small deal, and one I'm...

    Yeah. 3/$60m is not a small deal, and one I'm fine with the Cubs missing on. Eventually, the Cubs are going to have to go out of their comfort zone and they'll have to sign a contract that doesn't...

    I don't think it has to be a 1b/DH, and it can be someone who could player COF and DH as well. It doesn't give them the support of Mervis, but it opens up more options for the 2023 team in terms of...

    Also fair. I wouldn't really be excited about three years on Abreu.
  12. Sticky: Shrug. Makes sense. I'd guess Abreu is in...

    Shrug. Makes sense. I'd guess Abreu is in "chase immediate championships" stage of his career being 36. While I think most of the time, money wins out, there are just times you can't match up...
  13. Sticky: I'm fine with Horton over Lee. I don't really...

    I'm fine with Horton over Lee. I don't really love Lee as a prospect; he's got a thick lower body and looks like he's got a lot of 2b in him defensively, and his swing is wonky. He makes a lot of...
  14. Sticky: I think this is a correlation/causation issue. I...

    I think this is a correlation/causation issue. I do think Judge will sign first, but Judge has no competition...he is the OF market. Correa and Turner are not necessarily working on the Judge...
  15. Sticky: Bellinger was worth 1.7 fWAR. Happ was worth...

    Bellinger was worth 1.7 fWAR. Happ was worth much more than that. Why? Because you can't just move Happ to CF and his offense won't make up for his defense. If it did, he'd be worth 3.5 fWAR in...
  16. Sticky: Happ has proven time and time again he's not a...

    Happ has proven time and time again he's not a capable MLB CF. I do not agree that he'd just be carbon neutral, that what you'd gain in offense you'd lose in defense. I also don't fully believe in...
  17. Sticky: Happ isn't a CF and I don't think the Cubs...

    Happ isn't a CF and I don't think the Cubs believe that either. He can moonlight there a day or two if need be, but they won't have Happ in CF more then that, and I'd bank on that heavily.

    It could also be the Cubs looking at Conforto for DH.

    It depends on what you mean. If the Cubs sign Bogaerts and Senga but that's literally it, the Cubs have had a poor offseason. They enter with no DH, no CF, no split with Gomes, questions in the...

    Well...thats where the "right trade" part comes in. The right trade would factor in what they were giving up, what they were receiving and how it impacted their full offseason and outlook.

    Perfectly fine. As I said, I don't care if he doesn't count, but there comes a point where this game we have to play constantly of "The Cubs didn't develop anyone ever for 10 years" is so ****ing...

    It depends on what we mean by "develop". If all we mean is "draft, keep in the system the entire time, and then make the MLB with the Cubs the entire time" I think that's an incredibly narrow line. ...

    Only at the last moment, however. He was originally posted in December and the Cubs were, at best, on the periphery. Other teams like SD, Boston and the Giants were considered more likely. His...

    I think you're being over reactionary to no signings. There's almost no indication as to where anyone is going yet. The Cubs generally work quietly anyways. We didn't even know they were deep on...

    I'd guess someone not on the roster. By seasons end, I'd guess Estrada.
