    You have to play the market that exists. Sitting around every year avoiding mega deals and taking lesser players just leads to lots of mediocrity. The main advantage of being a top 4 market with top...

    The Ricketts will probably find a way to wring atleast another 60-70 mil a year in revenue out of Wrigley/Cubs by the time we get to the end of a Correa deal. Plus ads on uniforms. It's ridiculous...

    The Cubs absolutely should have kept spending to supplement the core after 2018. Even if it meant eventually having to suck for a few years at the end. They ended up sucking for a few years anyway,...

    Jason Heyward had 4 seasons over 120 wRC+ and 4 seasons over 4 WAR when he signed his contract. Swanson has never hit the 120 wRC+ mark and has been over 4 WAR 1 year in his career. He's also 2-3...

    The Red Sox are sure doing a great job of avoiding mega deals. They're also in the worst spot they've been in a long time. But atleast they are avoiding those big stars.

    Yah, I'm a bit worried about the market for Swanson. I'd be fine with the Turner or Xander deals. I'm fine with paying Correa a big contract. I'm out when you're talking big money and 8 years for...

    Sure, and I'm trying not be pessimistic. It's just pretty tough after the last 4 years. I think the Bellinger and Taillion signings are fine but if they strike out on the top 3 SS it's likely to be a...

    I don't think I can take anything positive about another of the good SS coming off the board. Hopefully it pushes the Cubs all in on Correa but i have my doubts.

    He went to the team that gave him the best offer. What in the world did he owe the Cubs, who showed absolutely no interest in extending him, or bringing him back in FA? I could understand being upset...

    If the Twins are offering 10 and the Cubs are sticking to 7-8 years(which seems likely) he's going to be a Twin. Then they can talk all about how they were interested but it doesn't mean anything if...

    I really hope the Cubs are going to take a risk and try to bring in a star to build around. But all of this mostly still feels like "We're checking in and we're interested if they'll take less years"...

    Most of us who dislike the Ricketts now defended them for 6 or 7 years. Youre welcome to go back and look. For me it was 2019-2020 that started it. O I fully bought in that they planned to try to...

    Was at the game today. Had a blast. Fastest cubs game of the year. Screw all these new rules. MLB really needs to take a page out of the Cubs and Rockies book. If you really want to speed up the game...

    Fields definitely could speed things up a little. But is there really any reason to believe this ragtag group of wr are getting seperation and giving him somewhere to throw to?

    Just adding on, I also remember they've only started a season as a top 5 payroll once in the entire Ricketts Era. Almost anytime they've finished top 5 the Cubs had to perform well above...

    Rizzo is probably going to be around 3 WAR for the 7th time in his career. So no, I'm not expecting any prospects to just come up and give similar production. That'd be incredibly silly. I do think...

    I think i could live without spending at 1B this offseason. Hopefully Mervis can earn the spot with Wisdom as a backup for 1B/3B.

    Right. As good as Devers is, it wouldn't make sense to trade that much good young talent for 1 year. Especially a year where the cubs are still likely not legit competing.
