    This is where a contributing farm system would be helpful.
    And you seem to assume the Cubs needs would be filled simply by making a trade/trades. Iím not confident in making such assumptions.

    The infield is damn good.
    The outfield would need at least one right handed hitting corner. Is Pham still a CF?

    No, I am not saying it wasnít stated. Iím just not painting with a broad brush. Mental aspects of the game and players being discussed doesnít mean those taking part think everyone is mentally weak.

    No, but they could be more vague. ďLetís see how it goesĒ or ďBaseball is a businessĒ or ďIt takes two to tangoĒ

    Play it out. The Nats just did. But, to your point, their system wasnít a black hole for years. So, trading a star to try to fix negligence of the system is probably going to be the answer. Better...

    Trades can, in fact, be won.

    See: Jordan Alvarez straight up for Josh Fields. Or Scott Feldman for Jake Arrieta. Or, the farm for Josť Quintana.

    Heís obviously closer to it than I am, but I canít believe itís a blanket theory all teams are using.
