    Well if anyone knows a Cubs rebuild it's Starlin Castro.

    "The eye might be a little more focused on the future" - Jed Hoyer during his press conference today.

    Not that we should have needed any more confirmation, but it's pretty obvious what the plan is.

    Itís just a matter of how much of a tear down it is.

    Are we talking about KB and Schwarber and maybe Contreras or are we talking about Darvish and even Hendricks? I think there is no doubt they are stepping back, itís just a matter of how far theyíll go.

    Frankly, if it's "maybe Contreras" it needs to be "Maybe Contreras and Darvish" because it should be both, not one or another.

    Assuming that Was is the best realistic landing spot for KB, is it possible that Was may pay a little more to get him before the 12/2 NT deadline, so they don't take a chance on the Cubs NT'ering him? Now they won't have to get in a bidding war with the likes of the LAD. I mean if they really want him, why risk it. Carter K and/or Robles wouldn't be the worst return. Both young guys with former high hopes. I'd prefer both, but that may be an overreach.

    Like I've been saying, I dont see a total tear down, a couple changes but nothing drastic..
    They have players to build around to keep it going

    At this juncture, there's a world where the Cubs don't get either. There's zero chance they get both. I also don't think Robles is on the table.

    I think our best bet return from Washington will be Kieboom.

    The Cubs will hire a GM, and it will come outside of the organization. Per Hoyer.

    Jared Porter would be a cool hire

    I was a fan of Kieboom last year, so I guess I would have to say I would be pleased with getting him opposed to getting nothing

    Frankly, I think he's talking straight out of his ***. Think about everything we've heard:
    - We've heard the Cubs losses
    - We've been told the Cubs will not reinvest Wrigley Field tax savings into the franchise
    - The Cubs won't rebuild

    These things don't make sense together. You can't complain about losses, then get a windfall and refuse to invest, and then pretend that everything is hunky dorey. I think he's talking out of his *** and not being truthful because he knows no one will call him out. It'll be "rebuilding the pipeline" not "Tom told me the budget's going down".
