Are we irked, troubled, or TERRIFIED after the Brewers trade tonight?
Category: Analysis and Commentary
There’s a whole lot that goes into adding a starting pitcher for these Cubs, but it’s worth this process, because the impact is so significant.
More reasons to bet on Chatwood breaking out with the Cubs. Also: we love you, Ernie.
It sounds crazy at first, but when you really dig into what Schwarber’s done and been through, it seems less crazy.
Another possible reason for the sides to dig in their heels? Also, if the money isn’t going to free agents, should we see more extensions?
I actually really like the confidence. But is it even plausible that Heyward could be the team MVP?
A healthy Addison Russell who puts up plus offensive numbers would be a dramatic and immediate boon to the Cubs in 2018.
This offseason, and its trailing cloud, is only the beginning of what could be an ugly process for the sport.
It’s not easy to balance winning now and the future.
If the Cubs’ version of Jose Quintana had a full season of starts, he would have been a top 20 pitcher in the game.
If Mike Montgomery is forced to join the rotation, the Cubs just signed up a big hedge for the bullpen.
2017 was a bad year for Ben Zobrist. Perhaps a better physical foundation will improve his durability and performance in 2017? Either way, his role figures to change.
The Cubs are deep in negotiations for their next TV deal, which could include the creation of their own new cable channel. But would MLB let them think bigger?
He even goes so far as to say he’d love to do it. And he would probably be great, but I think there are better options.
Looking at the expected position players on the Cubs’ roster this year, you could argue it either way.
Buster? Yadi? Willy.
After two years of attempts at mechanical changes and approach fixes, it might be time to step back.
Top six certainly seems fair, even before the offseason is complete.
And he’s worth every penny.
The Cubs’ bullpen looks incredibly different if Wilson is as good as he usually is.
That signing took place at the Winter Meetings, nearly a month ago.
You often see those negotiations taking place this week before the big day on Friday. But do the Cubs actually have any good fits?
I’m totally fine with Mike Montgomery as the fifth starter. It’s just that, if he’s that guy, then the depth behind him is unnerving.
You can expect to hear conversations in the coming weeks about which Cubs middle infielder plays where.
I think there’s an important distinction to draw here about the Cubs’ connection to Cain.
What a one-two punch at the top of a rotation.
