    I can't read. Blame the Bourbon infused Imperial Stout I'm consuming. Or that I live in Kentucky. Both could be the problem.

    Yeah. I mean...fair point. The only good thing about Kentucky is really...that we aren't Alabama.

    Agreed.

    One thing is the news on these vaccines being ready likely early 2021 may make the market a bit healthier, teams might be more optimistic. Could possibly have things mostly back to normal attendance-wise by the All-Star break.

    Amazing that a team would agree to pay a guy 24 mil at 40 years old. Brutal.

    After age 33 it's best to assume a position guy is going to decline.

    It's also pretty dumb to risk suspension when you already have a guaranteed contract for the rest of your career.

    Wrigley Field was given the designation of Federal Landmark Status, meaning the Ricketts family is now entitled to tax credits for completing the recently renovated Wrigley Field project.

    Yay...they will get millions back in tax credits, pocket everything and still tear down and rebuild the team.

    I thought it was complete. He'll only get tax incentives on the work he does from here on out. Correct?

    Hopefully there will be some trades involving possible non tender guys in the next 2 weeks . Not talking about the Cubs just in general .

    Sadly I don't think much movement will go down right now. With the uncertainty of the universal DH (Cruz is going to wait), Financials (teams won't know their budgets until they have a better idea of what attendance may look like), and start date (schedule is subject to change), most teams are going to be gun shy right now.

    It's what is overly concerning with the non-tender situation for the Cubs. They could non-tender someone in 2 weeks because they fear getting stuck with them and their contract.

    I wouldnt be surprised to see moves before the tender decisions. A KB trade between now and that 12/2 deadline wouldnt shock me. Same with Schwarber. Teams might wait to see if the Cubs non tender them or they might just grab them in a trade first. That way they can assure themselves theyll get the player and the trade cost will be pretty small anyway.

    For the sake of non tender talk, in the event that KB and Schwarbs both get non tendered, what kind of contract do you guys think that they can fetch as FA's?

    I'm thinking
