I'm posting this here because the response to todays bullets and stove are going nuts and I want some inoput that won't be lost.


If the Cubs get Tanaka will they be more inclined to trade Shark?  Also, what is worth in the offseason?  Is a Bradley and Skaggs type deal still reasonable?


It seems iffy at best that a contract will be worked out and his value is high.  The rotation is starting to get crowded and a lot of the guys seem the same.  Is he really any better than Arrieta (stuff wise) or Wood (well, just look at this year)?  You may be able to net a lot for him.  I for one wouldn't mind a rotation of Tanaka, Wood, Jackson (only because I think its enevitable) and the two best of Arrieta, Rusin, Grimm and Cabrera or maybe a prospect gained by trading Shark.


Just a thought and it could happen without acquiring Tanaka if the right deal comes along.

Personally I'd rather land Tanaka and resign Shark.

Yup, that's clearly the best case scenario.
