    Any player the Dodgers like, I like. Except Trevor Bauer. That guy can **** right off.

    Same stuff as you'd imagine. He'd fit. The Cubs have a need. Stroman's tweet. Maybe they will, maybe they won't. Nothing new. Felt like a time filler during the lockout.

    A package of 18 year olds would be inferior to an equal package of older players. That's how prospects work.

    So either the package of 18 year olds was simple better or he chose that package,...

    That would be silly. To take an inferior and more risk filled package simply because the Cubs could spend more money and those prospects could take more time (it would also allow more time for...

    That's only the FO. The players can talk however they want. They are currently locked out and the MLB has no say with them right now. They can't be fined retroactively.

    The Cubs would be stupid to worry about the cheating scandal of 2017 with Correa. He's fresh off a 6 win season well after the scandal. He posted a 140 wRC+ on the road during the scandal (where...

    The cheating thing is so overblown and overdone. Yeah, the Astros cheated, whatever. In 2017, the "cheating" year, Correa had a 140 wRC+ on the road. He once again posted a 126 wRC+ on the road...

    Yeah, it's starting to feel like Correa is a real option here. He fits a lot of what the Cubs need.

    Yeah, I doubt it's more than Stroman being excited about being on a new team, hoping they're good, and probably being a bit playful with the report that the Cubs had contacted the Correa camp. But...

    The Cubs have a current budget of about $117m or so. $15m a year for a 1b is not doing any damage to the Cubs bottom line. Not for 2 years. It blocks no one. It doesn't cost a draft pick. It...

    It's really not. 2 years, $28/$30m would make a ton of sense for the Cubs. I'm just making up a number, here. But that's a fine deal for the Cubs, who have almost no salary for the next 2 years on...

    Yeah that won't be a fun physical at all. But yeah, he's an obvious "next step" target here.

    2/$30m or something would probably make sense. Maybe structure it similar to the Stroman deal.

    I really don't want to be that guy but...I think everyone if offered "the right" contract would sign anywhere. That's a silly quote (not you, JD, the Hendo guy).

    Not sure Kukichi is our guy if he's being offered 3 years. Not seeing Cubs being mentioned here.

    Did they officially pivot? Or just sign Baez and have kept in contact with Correa still? I'm not sure I've seen anything that would suggest they cut off contact there. But maybe I missed it.

    I'm not sure how quickly the Stroman thing came together and the Cubs generally operate quietly. I have zero clue if it's feasible, but they should be on the phone with the Correa camp right now. ...
