    Maybe some of the SS reports are true and others are smoke for leverage. But we have no idea which ones are which.

    Or maybe nobody really knows what they're talking about

    I wouldn't move Nico off SS for Bogaerts or Turner, they're probably better at 2B or less ideally 3B (due to below average arms).

    edit: Nico is a very good SS. His OOA has always been elite in...

    I looked on Baseball Savant. He has very good jumps, average speed (used to be above average, slipped last year), pretty good OAA except last year, and a great arm. I think he's more of a RF...

    All that's been said is the Cubs are talking with Swanson. It means nothing. The Cubs are probably talking with every SS agent because they would be dumb not to. None of these reports mean...

    I would imagine the Cubs don't even consider signing anyone with a QO until after the draft lottery on Tues.

    Yeah it would depend on the years. If it's 5 years or less that's fine. He's a speed/legs dependent guy, you don't want him in his mid 30's at 28 y/o prices.

    Swanson is a good player and for the right price he's fine, Swanson/Nico up the middle is very good. Swanson might even play 2B. But it just makes...

    You have to be dumb or willing to spend 270+ mil payroll to give an aging oft-injured pitcher that money/years. A typical Rangers move.

    Maybe we should have kept Rizzo last year, I wanted him back. Mervis could DH, and sometimes Rizzo to rest the back, + others. Oh well.

    I think if they did this it's still not a good team. We have to replace players like Contreras and Smyly to even be as good as we were, which wasn't that good. Our offense right now is Happ,...

    They prioritized catcher last season, I'm sure they'll sign another decent catcher this offseason too.

    Vazquez seems decent, good defensively. Was worth negative -9.9 baserunning runs last year. ...

    Spending 18-20m on Bellinger is a bit nuts. He's basically a 2 WAR player right now, and i wouldn't spend ~10m on a wild bet that he'll hit better and actually be worth the contract. For that price...
