    Agree. With each passing day, it just doesn’t seem worth the risks.

    Yep. The Quintana deal should be looked at with an even wider lens.
    And yes, they did indeed trade the farm for Quintana.

    They actually have been good at the short term, low risk, low cost pickups the last three seasons. Castelanos, Hamel, Chavez. The longer term, higher priced pickups, not so much. And then there’s the...

    If Puig wasn’t a reverse splits guy, he’d be an almost must get for a team as thin as the Cubs. Heck, as meh as he is vs LHP, he’d still most likely be better than most of the Cubs OFs are against...

    I have no problem with the DH in the NL. Just sucks it is being pushed without NL having the chance to fill the position before playing. With the Cubs thin roster, it probably won’t improve the...

    It was about the Sandberg stuff. Palmeiro was a LF his three years with the Cubs, and ultimately a better player than Grace.

    The crappiness of the Lee Smith trade was compounded by filling the need for a closer by trading Palmeiro for Mitch Williams. Which easily could have been on this list.

    I’ve been to Arizona in summer a few times. I can not see them trying to play more than a couple, if any, outdoor games in the daylight during the summer months. Not trying to sound dramatic, but...

    It’s often forgotten because it happened just after Chapman blew up and how it all ended, but Baez bunting on a 3-2 pitch with a runner on third was bad. Really bad. Especially considering how abused...

    Just make a new schedule. If the schedule needs to be shortened, start with eliminating as many inter league games as possible. Try to make the schedule as balanced as it can be.

    Yes. If Caratini is the best bat on the bench, which is probably the case, a third catcher makes sense. You don’t want them saving their best option, especially with the rest of the bench looking...

    He probably makes the team or a phantom injury. Remember, the Cubs decision makers have a really hard time admitting mistakes.

    This is probably true in Heyward’s case last season. But, Heyward’s career numbers are even worse when in the leadoff spot. The mental aspect of the game shouldn’t be completely ignored.

    How is it overplayed when Heyward, Almora, and Descalso, clearly nowhere near any list of best hitters, are getting the most ABs?

    They didn’t need a prototype leadoff hitter, but they needed the structure behind having a guy to put there. How else can...
