    If Contreras is dealt then Amaya is going to have the first chance to earn that MLB job in the next 2 years and Quintero or Hearn will need to take it away from him.
    I'd take the young player almost every time. Value for dollar is no comparison. Take that 20 million a year or whatever and go upgrade another position. Contreras would have to be worth 15-20 million more per year than Amaya.

    A player's value isn't their WAR, it's WAR per dollar.

    They arenít where they were in 2014 both in terms of mlb talent and Milb talent, so fortunately this exact lineup will never happen.
    Yeah. Luckily we have Baez, Bryant, Rizzo, Schwarber all as trading chips to improve our farm system and whatnot.

    Be nice if 3 or 4 of these guys become that new young "core" group in a couple years

    Itís not hard to imagine Contreras being worth 15-20 million more per year than Amaya. Thatís probably the most likely scenario.

    It would kinda suck that if opening day 2022 and there no Contreras Rizzo Baez Bryant or Schwarber, these guys couldn't get extended and last more then 6-7 yrs with them.

    Looks like we finally got our answer for the cost of Marquee on Comcast/Xfinity.

    RSN fees for carrying the channel is an additional $6.20/month for Marquee, effective October 1st.

    I just got a notice from them that they're going to reimburse the cost from sports packages because of the lack of games on the next bill...

    People say this every year, but the offseason drags and drags. I hope this series goes 7 so we get as much baseball as possible before a long winter of every team talking about how broke they are.

    I listed to Kaplanís podcast since I hate myself. He and Gordo seem to think thereís still a reallly good chance Theo walks away any day now and Hoyer takes over his role.

    Why put yourself through that torture, especially listening to a podcast with BOTH Kap and Gordo on the same program?

    I listen to the Athletic one most of the time. Brett bothers me, but itís ok. I only listed to 1 episode of the Ian Happ one. It was alright, but if Iím listening to Cubs conversation Iíd rather listen to more of the player development, what direction does the org go, whatís next stuff rather than the types of things they talk about on that one. Iíve tried the Cubs Related one a bunch of times. I just canít get into it. Iíve mentioned it before but it seems like they just take turns giving extended speeches. It is better than it used to be.

    I hate sports radio, but the one thing they do well when they have multiple hosts is that they have conversations instead of giving speeches. So many of the Cubs podcasts arenít conversations, but are just individual rants back to back.
