  2. Sticky: Chicago Cubs 2019 Minor League News, Notes and Updates

    We agree on the negative impact of taking it out of markets.

    I donít really agree with it being a potentially good thing to force more players out of the game earlier. Iím sure itís cheaper to...

    The 2nd tier shouldnít matter at all. I think if they are willing to go into the tax, they might as well go up to the top tier without going over. The difference between the first tier tax and the...

    That was the 3rd/top tier. If I remember right the 2nd tier was in the upper 220s.

    I think I hate that. I agree with Brett that the more places that have baseball teams the better. The more players teams can bring into their system, the better. Iíd imagine this will also align with...

    I donít think they tear down or anything, but Iím guessing:

    - at least 1 of the core 4 are traded. Those 4 do have a lot of surplus value, even the higher paid ones.
    - 1-2 new pitchers in the...

    Yes, but they wonít do it. Nobody will. And itís not that tax is too burdensome, itís the the owners effectively got a salary cap in the form of a player tax and they arenít going to give that up by...

    Right. Itís amazing that this still needs to be said. They know they need some roster changes. They arenít just going to switch managers and run the same 25 out there. If they do, theyíll get about...

    They arenít going over the top tax tier line. We can dream all we want. We can complain all we want. They arenít going to do it. The question is if theyíll go over the 2nd tier again or the first...

    Ross being manager doesnít mean that they wonít make any changes with the core. Thatís a pretty big stretch. I donít think theyíll blow it up, but 1 or 2 of those guys could be moved regardless of...

    Itís just not true that theyíve done a really poor job drafting. Bryant was not the obvious pick, a lot of people wanted Jon Gray. It was close to 50/50. Your anti-Schwarber bias aside, he has been a...

    Maybe Bard gets an interview once the Yankees are eliminated. In the end, Iíll be surprised if it isnít Ross.

    I really donít want to trade any of the top 4 prospects. Amaya could be really good.

    Yeah, you did imply that by saying top 10 picks canít be developed. Thatís nonsense. LH was mlb ready when he was drafted, but heís still developed. His L rate is down 10% since his rookie year....

    With his many connections to this FO and trying to get back in a dugout, John Farrell might be a bench coach for Ross, too.
