    With the KB/Nats talks, what do you all think is realistic?

    Cubs get: Kieboom, Starlin Castro / Daniel Hudson to mitigate salary and maybe find a bounceback stopgap for the Cubs in a position of need, + a flier
    Nats get: KB

    I think Kieboom plus one of those 2 contracts (Castro or Hudson) could be realistic.

    From the Dodgers I wonder if you could get Michael Busch plus a negative contract back? Maybe Busch, Joe Kelly, half of Kellyís 2022 buyout money, and a 2nd kind of interesting prospect like Andy Pages?

    The article also talks about the possibility of a KB non tender, Contreras trade, and Rizzo extension.
    Yup...just like I said it would happen.

    I know the Cubs have kind of backed themselves into a weird spot with their Bryant-handling but man, I'm just not super high on Carter Kieboom.

    Honestly, if the Nats package was realistic I donít think itís the worst path forward if, as expected, they arenít going to spend. That paired with a Darvish trade (who I think should be traded if we are punting 2021) could set them up nicely in 2022 if Kieboom turns into a cost controlled, 3 win type guy. Throw in a Schwarber trade for whatever you can get and maybe you hang onto Contreras, Happ, Hendricks and extend Rizzo while having a decent sized war chest next off season to replace Baez.

    For someone who mainly known to be Theo
    side kick, that a big risk to take because if he fails he'll likely end up going to the back of the GM line for hire

    In a way it does. Iím sure they budgeted that to renovation expenses so in another way it doesnít plus with it being tax credits it isnít an infusion of cash today, but rather a tax savings of 9 figures that they might collect over multiple years through reduced or eliminated tax payments.

    Regardless they should have access to cash if they really want it. I just highly doubt this changes any of their plans this offseason.


    Jed talks in 15 min. Itíll be interesting to hear his thoughts on the teams direction.
