    Supply and demand. There just aren’t that many really good starting pitchers.
  2. Sticky: Discussion: He was actually trending in the wrong direction...

    He was actually trending in the wrong direction until the Astros got hold of him.
  3. Sticky: Discussion: Sometimes no news is good news.

    Sometimes no news is good news.
  4. Sticky: Discussion: With a sense of urgency.

    With a sense of urgency.
  5. Sticky: Discussion: The biggest issue with Eloy isn’t that he isn’t...

    The biggest issue with Eloy isn’t that he isn’t on the Cubs. It’s that they didn’t maximize the value on this particular asset.
  6. Sticky: Discussion: First off, context. I was replying to a comment...

    First off, context. I was replying to a comment hyping the system at the current moment, not five years ago.
    And it is difficult to maintain both a contender and a system. But not impossible. Look...
  7. Sticky: Discussion: They may be “terrible” but they still would have...

    They may be “terrible” but they still would have been the top ranked prospects in the Cubs system at the start of 2019.
  8. Sticky: Discussion: And we’re looking to trade Bryant and Contreras...

    And we’re looking to trade Bryant and Contreras for “cheap, controllable assets”
    Why? Because the Cubs are getting no cheap, controllable production from the system. Well that and some atrocious...
  9. Sticky: Discussion: The Yankees were also ahead of the curve in...

    The Yankees were also ahead of the curve in realizing teams would pay a ransom for guys who pitch one inning a game for 70 games a season. And they cashed in and sped up a retool.
    Do the Cubs have...
  10. Sticky: Discussion: Until the system contributes anything, anything...

    Until the system contributes anything, anything at all, to the Major League roster, either on the field or in trades, it’s just noise.
  11. Sticky: Discussion: Part of Rizzo getting kind of overlooked is...

    Part of Rizzo getting kind of overlooked is probably due to the Nats, prior to this year, never won a playoff series.
    But they have done a real good job of keeping the pipeline flowing. Many want to...
  12. Sticky: Discussion: Telling Cubs fans that believe Heyward can be...

    Telling Cubs fans that believe Heyward can be moved that it ain’t gonna happen is like telling a kid there is no Santa.
    You see the hope and wonderment fade from their eyes. Kinda breaks your...
  13. Sticky: Discussion: There’s a better understanding now more than ever...

    There’s a better understanding now more than ever of what makes/made a productive player.
    That’s why Santo and Simmons finally got in. It wasn’t their fault voters of the past were pretty ignorant.
  14. Sticky: Discussion: There’s plenty of blame to go around. The fact...

    There’s plenty of blame to go around. The fact that they’ve gotten practically zero contributions from the system the past 3-4 years may be the biggest sin.

    Yeah. Always found him to be somewhat odd. Just throws crap out there, not really “insider” stuff.

    I absolutely would not have minded a new stadium. But have to give the Cubs/Ricketts credit. The ballpark is sooo much better than it was just 8-10 years ago. They can only do so much with the tiny...

    One good thing about not having money to spend, you’re not spending $100 mil on a flavor of the month like Wheeler.

    Front offices, league wide, have evolved since 2014. Personally, my confidence isn’t what it was just five years ago.
    The Cubs should be looking for short term assets to add to this pretty solid...

    Fact of the matter is, no one here has any idea what she offers and how it will work out. She could be the greatest hire ever, she could be a colossal disaster. We have no clue. I just hope, either...

    There is a lot I’d be willing to do to lose Heyward and that contract. A LOT.
    But not that.
