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

    All teams are ďrich.Ē Certainly teams who just ran a top 5 payroll over the lux tax and who have significantly outspent our cubs the last 2 years are rich. The cubs have higher revenues than Philly...

    Totally disagree.

    Harpers deal to this point has been an absolute steal for Philly and if he were a FA today heíd beat the remaining amount on the deal by $100 million. Itís a great contract.

    Next 3 years? Philly easily. Iíd rather be a good team in a good division than a bad team in a bad division.

    Bottom line on Harper is that heís a star on a deal thatís a $25 million AAV. Itís a...

    Harper would easily beat 9/230 today. Easily.

    Saying ďhe doesnít get them a titleĒ is meaningless. He helps a ton. Without him the brewers would have been in the playoffs in their spot and...

    Tommy John isnít a big deal for a hitter and good luck replacing Harper for $27 million in AAV.

    They also would have missed the playoffs this year instead of playing in the World Series.

    Itís less about the money and more about the years. Unless they are signing Judge or Nimmo, I wouldnít want any CF they sign to get a 2nd year. Iíd be looking for a 1 year bridge to PCA.

    I agree, but I wouldnít want either at those costs. Trade for someone like Michael Taylor and pay him less than $5 million for 1 year leaving more money for other spots.

    Mets were at $287 last year all in. I believe the cubs are around $135 or so today all in with the benefit payment, 40 man payments, arb estimates, and Heyward/Bote. $600/8 is $75 in AAV, so it would...
