    Sticky: 2022-2023 Cubs Offseason Free Agent & Trade Thread

    I think you are misunderstanding my point, but if the “accounting” move is designed to keep the cubs under the tax in 2023, that means the Cubs are staying under the tax in 2023. So it may be telling...

    Not sure exactly, but the rough estimates had them around $135 as a lux tax number before Bellinger and Taillon. That includes Heyward, the benefits payment that impacts lux tax totals, 40 man roster...

    Sticky: 2022-2023 Cubs Offseason Free Agent & Trade Thread

    I want Correa. I’d be very happy with Murphy too.

    I’m not sure about the “direction” yet. So far they signed a 1 year player, which is fine but he’s just a 1 year bridge most likely. They also...

    Sticky: 2022-2023 Cubs Offseason Free Agent & Trade Thread

    I agree completely, but what does “access to the checkbook” really mean. Kap says Tom wants to win and Jed can spend, but we know it’s not a blank check. How much Jed can spend is still an unknown to...

    Cool. So if you are Carlos Correa, keep that Houston house from your Astros days and save millions on State taxes.

    I’m kind of on wait and see mode on the offseason, but I really need them to get Correa or something big that I’m not anticipating to be psyched about how they are spending this offseason. Taillon is...

    I think they might just believe in Swanson more than Xander moving forward. Swanson is the better defender. Xander’s batted ball data this past year was concerning. Swanson elevates better than any...

    Yep. In addition to still having a ton of room between themselves and the top spenders the Cubs have Heyward, Bellinger, Happ, Hendricks, maybe Stroman off the books after 2023. They should go big...

    If Bellinger puts up that line with his CF defense he might be an MVP candidate. That would be an amazing outcome.

    Right. Most players would set up an offseason home in a warm State with no State income tax like FL, TX, AZ. Then that’s their State of residence. I believe the way it works is that they’d pay...

    No interest in Mancini either.

    Long way to go this offseason and I’m optimistic, but I’ll share 1908’s frustration if this winter goes like he mentioned it could go.

    Agreed. That was my reaction as well. If it’s a minor league deal, whatever. No reason to give him any kind of mlb deal at this point.

    If it’s Swanson I’d play him at SS and Nico at 2b.

    If it’s Xander I assume they’ll do the same at least for year 1.

    Well that would be a kick in the balls. His language about Judge is much more certain than the Correa language.

    9.9% chance at a top 6 pick.
    0.0% 7-11.
    87.7% 12 or 13.
    2.4% 14 or worse.

    If they read these off backwards and get past 12 without calling the Cubs, celebrate.

    The #1 pick, especially in a draft like 2023 is very very valuable. 90% chance the cubs pick 12 or later, so a jump to anywhere in the top 6 would be huge.
