    I'm not disagreeing. Just saying...he's not wrong.

    He's not wrong. The Yankees are a better team.

    Because of the grievance. HoF or not...one year of a player is still only one year of a player.

    Worthwhile $1m, honestly. Probably is just $1m down the drain, but maybe he can pitch some.

    Bob Nightengale; Scratch Yu Darvish off the list of potential #Cubs trade candidates. He has a full no-trade clause through the 2020 season, and has no intention on waiving it. He loves being with...

    If you're a fan of the Braves as a trade partner this is good news.
  7. Sticky: Discussion: Yeah you start high, but I guess I don't...

    Yeah you start high, but I guess I don't understand the "If it's the Dodgers it has to hurt" mentality. They're just one of another group of teams.

    If we're operating under the assumption...
  8. Sticky: Discussion: It's unlikely you're getting May AND Verdugo,...

    It's unlikely you're getting May AND Verdugo, too. You won't get Kieboom AND Robles. These are all pretty unrealistic asks for the final product. I think those are where the Cubs start and the...

    Gavin Lux is awesome. But it's pretty clear there just isn't much want on the side of the Dodgers to trade him, so I think we have to operate as if he's not a realistic option.

    Jibes with reports that he didn't care about location. Good low risk signing for Tampa.
  11. Sticky: Discussion: If the Cubs don't sign Akimaya, I'll be fine,...

    If the Cubs don't sign Akimaya, I'll be fine, honestly. He's more Nori Aoki than he probably is a starting CF'er. I think as a 350-400 PA guy he'll be a decent player. My issue is far less on "It...
  12. Sticky: Discussion: I wouldn't. I trust the Verdugo bat over the...

    I wouldn't. I trust the Verdugo bat over the Robles bat. Robles has him on defense and base running, but I like the Verdugo approach and bat more today. Robles was worth 2.5 fWAR in 617 PA's last...
  13. Sticky: Discussion: To be fair, what else would you expect the...

    To be fair, what else would you expect the reports be in mid-December? That the Cubs reportedly are looking for a "somewhat disappointing" package for Contreras?

    I'd assume today the Cubs are...

    Between Robles and Verdugo....I like Verdugo more. So that's why I went that direction.

    Yeah, pretty much this.

    It's Verdugo/May/IFA cash for me. I think he's the best prospect of the bunch and I kind of like Josiah Gray, too. He's got a great approach. He might be a 4 fWAR kind of guy as a top, but I think...

    I mean, I don't disagree that there's some of that in there. They want to make some changes. They would like to extend their run. But I think if the Cubs knew the money was there, that run would...
  18. Sticky: Discussion: I mean, I don't see any reason the Cubs decide in...

    I mean, I don't see any reason the Cubs decide in January to spend $30m on this team. Realistically, in January, what is $30m going to buy you? This market has moved fast this year. If anything...

    Honestly, with the market right now...what would changing their plan realistically do? The Cubs are starting to miss out on the players you'd probably assume they'd go after. They can't just wait...

    They would be pretty silly to tell the world that was the plan, as it would probably make Bryant's value a little less. We all know who they're going to trade.

    Personally? I think there's...

    Lester has 10-5. He can veto any trade. If they trade Chatwood (which I'm fine with) they can't just eat most of it because they'll have to replace him. Right now, Chatwood/Mills looks like your...

    Not tooting my own horn or comparing to Dawk, but I think a lot of people here are far more active in the sports world than we know.

    I am on the board of directors for an adult baseball league in...
  24. Sticky: Discussion: Individually they probably won't be. But if they...

    Individually they probably won't be. But if they give the Cubs a shot at Mookie Betts, they'll be a better team, probably, in 2021.

    It's not my favorite plan but you have to see merit in it.

    I don't think there's a point where a player has no ability to reach a number. Realistically, if a team has the budget, they can reach whatever number exists. It's what market value truly is.
