    I bet people would move around a bit. Between 2b, 3b and SS, as well as DH for off days. I'd guess positions were fluid.

  2. Sticky: If the Cubs traded for Ohtani he isn't getting...

    If the Cubs traded for Ohtani he isn't getting away. The Cubs have plenty of money. They'd get that deal done in that world. I'm not worried.

    Trading for Ohtani would be a very hard thing to...
  3. Sticky: Ohtani isn't likely to make FA. If he's traded,...

    Ohtani isn't likely to make FA. If he's traded, he's going to almost assuredly sign an extension there. The Cubs have a very deep farm and Shoehi Ohtani is the most unique player baseball has seen...
  4. Sticky: PCA skipping AAA, I think, would be fairly...

    PCA skipping AAA, I think, would be fairly harmful to his development. His hyper-aggressivity at the plate is a big concern that I think most people aren't focusing on. He's got good bat to ball...
  5. Sticky: I'm telling you that if the Cubs are in the hunt,...

    I'm telling you that if the Cubs are in the hunt, and the CF is poor, that PCA won't be the go-to first. No. Alexander Canario or Brennen Davis are almost assuredly going to get the first looks at...
  6. Sticky: That's an incredibly simplified version. Brennen...

    That's an incredibly simplified version. Brennen Davis and Alexander Canario are both on the 40, both in AAA, and both ahead of PCA in the current pecking order. Your "all that needs to happen"...
  7. Sticky: The Cubs started Jason Heyward in CF on Opening...

    The Cubs started Jason Heyward in CF on Opening Day, so the Cubs CF'er failing was pretty predictable. The Cubs CF should be an upgrade over that next year. The Cubs also have Christopher Morel in...
  8. Sticky: Exactly. For PCA to see meaningful 2023 action,...

    Exactly. For PCA to see meaningful 2023 action, I expect three players will need to have failed in a pretty heavy way or experience injury. I mean, the flip side is that PCA is forcing the issue,...
  9. Sticky: I didn't say that would be the case. But a...

    I didn't say that would be the case. But a scenario in which:

    1. The Cubs current CF is failing
    2. Davis is failing
    3. Canario is failing
    4. PCA is already in Iowa

    Is probably a pretty...
  10. Sticky: Yep. I think they'll go with the Cleveland...

    Yep. I think they'll go with the Cleveland Guardian type of a team next year; pitching and defense, have just enough hitters, and then mid-season hope that a handful of prospects can come up and...
  11. Sticky: I don't think we're talking about an intangible...

    I don't think we're talking about an intangible with this...it's just something we haven't entirely figured out how to quantify. That's very different. Honestly, with the roboumps coming down the...
  12. Sticky: I don't think there's going to be an option for...

    I don't think there's going to be an option for the Cubs to get a CF who accomplishes both a good bat and a good glove. You could argue that's Nimmo, but I don't think the Cubs will be the high...
  13. Sticky: I don't think the Cubs will be the high bidder on...

    I don't think the Cubs will be the high bidder on Nimmo with the type of OF prospects they have as close to the MLB as they are. They also seem to be going all-in on pitching organizationally. I'm...
  14. Sticky: Amaya has missed 1.5 years and hasn't caught for...

    Amaya has missed 1.5 years and hasn't caught for a very long time, and PCA has zero PA's above A+. While it wouldn't be the most shocking thing to see on of them come August if there are injuries...
  15. Sticky: I know this won't be the answer you're probably...

    I know this won't be the answer you're probably looking for, but I don't think there's a public metric available that is going to do this. First, teams like the Cubs have their own internal data,...
  16. Sticky: I wouldn't mind it. At some point the Cubs have...

    I wouldn't mind it. At some point the Cubs have to decide that they're the Chicago Cubs. We can't win every deal with super hard-core surplus value. I don't think that's the worst contract on the...
  17. Sticky: I'd bet it being Gomes + some other defensive...

    I'd bet it being Gomes + some other defensive catcher they acquire in the offseason.

    Do I think they could? Sure. They won't, though. Nothing has changed, IMO.

    4/$70-75m sounds fair. At least in the ballpark.

  19. Sticky: Leadership can be found elsewhere. The reality...

    Leadership can be found elsewhere. The reality is the catcher position is not a position that ages well, and while I like Contreras, if he's not a catcher, he's just not amazing. You can likely...
  20. Sticky: Yep. The few million in either direction is not...

    Yep. The few million in either direction is not the kind of money any team was going to be concerned with if they were legitimately attempting to trade for Ohtani.

  21. Sticky: He's still only under contract 1 season, so his...

    He's still only under contract 1 season, so his value is still the same. I guess teams have a slightly better idea of what he will cost next season, and won't have to wait out arbitration, but...
  22. Sticky: I understand. Was more an address to the...

    I understand. Was more an address to the original premise of them being throw ins on a big trade. No big trade will be changed because someone likes a guy like Adrian Sampson. Maybe he's good...
  23. Sticky: Throw-ins don't move needles. They're not really...

    Throw-ins don't move needles. They're not really tradable. Sure, maybe they sweeten a pot, but the Cubs have 30 guys who could accomplish the same thing. No team is going to target either, and...
  24. Sticky: I'm really not sure they'd have done any better. ...

    I'm really not sure they'd have done any better. Miley has been awful and how good a healthy Hendricks is now a days is pretty iffy. Smyly filled in great, Wesneski has been really good, too. Had...
  25. Sticky: I like what I've heard about Senga, myself. He's...

    I like what I've heard about Senga, myself. He's got a pitch that profiles as elite and the velo behind the fastball. I'm concerned that he's got one chase pitch and one chase pitch only, but if...
