    Are you guys buying Adam Conley as a potential multi-inning lefty relief pitcher like a poor man’s Miller/Hader/Hand? His stuff seems to be much improved this season and he’s been good, but it’s only 22ip.

    Another guy who could probably be had is Zack Wheeler if Thor and Degrom are out of the cost range.

    All the constant bringing up names of Met pitchers makes one realize how volatile pitching really is in the league.

    To think at one point that rotation of Harvey, Degrom, Thor, Wheeler could have been one of the best rotations in a LOONNNGGG time as every one of them was ACE type dominate at one point except maybe Wheeler who was still well on his way to that type.

    A lot of twitter talk about the Brewers looking like the best fit for Machado. Doesn’t look like the Dodgers will trade any of their top prospects for Machado and the Brewers seem like a better fit at the moment. Burnes / Ortiz / Phillips getting mentioned. Nothing close from what I read . Machado would be a huge huge upgrade over Arcia for them.

    I don’t think the Rays will get anything near Ian Happ for Eovaldi.

    More of me hoping they give up on him and trade him to us and he regains his stuff and wins 5 cy young.

    Milwaukee should go for it. They’ve got guys like Phillips and Santana that are blocked anyway and trading Burnes or woodruff isn’t that big of a deal. They don’t seem sold that Arica is the long term SS anymore. He’s a great defender, but he hasn’t been able to hit yet.

    Hopefully, if it happens, the cost is high. I think I’d rather see him in MKE than on the Dodgers.

    I hope Theo makes a trade and goes for it again this year.

    Really don't want to be in a situation where a one-game playoff is needed.

    And it seems like the two best teams in the NL are Milwaukee and Chicago.

    No shot they keep him. This is a CC like rental for them.

    The thing is that one of the biggest reasons why the Brewers are winning is their defense. If the Cubs aren’t the best defensive team in MLB, Milwaukee is. Looking at their stats, you’d expect pitching regression anyway, but they currently rate as one of the best teams in MLB at SS defense and Machado rates as the worst. His offense will more than offset that of course, but the defensive downgrade could have an impact on their 2nd half pitching if they get MM.

    There's not really anything the Cubs have to trade to "go for it" though. The best chip is Happ, and truthfully, the team probably needs him as insurance (as I stated in another thread...exactly which minor league player, at literally, any position, are you comfortable with starting on this team if someone is hurt?) at many positions. And he's really showing some signs of being a useful ball player. At that, I don't think he's realistically going to headline much of a deal, still.

    I'd rather not be in a one-game-play-in, either. But I also don't know where there's a realistic big trade to make to go for it.

    I think at this point, I don't think Machado is going to "resign" with anyone in the traditional sense. Like, I'd be shocked if he signed any extension with any team before he hits the FA market and gets a market-value deal. So could I see Machado wanting to eventually sign a contract with the Cubs? Sure. I think we make the most sense for many free agents: we're good, are likely to be good going forward, have a cool city to live in, and we have the money. But I don't think he's going to sign anything before he gets to be a FA, with us.
