    Based on the market, and rumors, Taillon already has 4 years on the table.

    I think we will see 4/$60m+.

    Yeah, I'm fairly confident the Cubs can pump out BP arms pretty regularly. With the SP prospect depth and the amount of near MLB ready BP guys, they should be capable of both moving BP arms at will...

    Keegan probably is a start, but depends on what the Arizona Diamondbacks see. I'd guess it'd take another addition; some sort of 40+/45Fv type. Maybe Luis Devers and complete the trade after the...

    I'll guess Taillon ends up a Met for a sticker shock price.

    Oh, I understand being frustrated in general and skeptical they'll be spending. I share a lot of that fear. But I'm also trying to let it play out and that's our best route. It's a long offseason....

    You're all good man. It's so hard to gage context online, Ill take blame too. Get some sleep, hopefully the Cubs won't do anything dumb until you wake up so you can commiserate with us!

    Two of the SS are repped by Boras and Boras clients notoriously wait out markets. The Cubs can leave without a SS this week and likely still have 2 or 3 SS on the board still. Possibly all 4.

    My biggest retort to that, is that even if the Cubs don't compete at a WS level, they should be more than capable of competing for WCs in that time. And even then, you've got a 30 year old Correa...

    It could have some merit. But then we come back to the question of; exactly what problem is Dansby Swanson solving? He doesn't solve the offense. I'm not sure he solves the defense. It feels like...

    I still think there's a path to contention; a low 80s team is a contender. You're in the ballpark of a WC, the Cubs have tons of prospects to trade at the deadline to further fill in gaps and more...

    I'd disagree pretty heavily with the idea it's not "intelligent". Bassitt is a pretty good player who will likely have his market slightly reduced due to the QO to begin with. The Cubs have no...
