    If the Cubs are looking at rentals, why not Garrett Richards? Is he injured? I would rather him then JA Happ. I would rather a right handed pitcher. And if he is healthy he is solid.

    Yep, that is the concern, obviously. And he isn't even Asian, so he can't be soft.

    TBH i thought Richards was under control for a while don’t know why. If the Angels are selling yeah i like him more than Happ . Anaheim is 8 out of the 2nd WC Mariners and they also have TB and Oak ahead of them . I would sell a guy like Richards if I were them but who knows what they are thinking.

    With all the talk today about them looking at OF I wondered if they could be talking about a Happ for Lugo trade. Let me start by saying that I wouldn’t do that trade as I believe Happ is gaining more value with each passing day. With that said Lugo is interesting as has been discussed here before and has a lot of control left and on paper looks like a pretty good fit for this Cubs roster so I could see why the Cubs would think about it.

    Cubs also have been interested in him in the past. Hopefully this doesn’t happen but just throwing it out there with the reports of them looking at Dietrich / Jones and Granderson .

    I highly doubt Kyle is even touchable to this FO. Smells like Happ on the block and the boys just doing their due diligence.

    and you thought yours was 8/10? Come on, on that scale mine had to be much higher than a 1.

    With the cost of pitchers being what it is, I would not be shocked by something like this. I don't like it either, but it might be realistic in baseball 2018. If so, maybe they get Familia too for some lesser minor leaguer or two. He is a rental. Evens it up a little.

    Seems like Orioles want Burnes from the Brewers in a Machado trade. Milwaukee would like to put a package together around Ortiz and Phillips.

    I think he ends up with the Brewers. They missed out last year at the deadline. I doubt they do it again this year. And he will not cost them what people hope he will cost.

    Not shocking on the Cubs. I think they never really were in anyway.
