#48549 Trade Idea that won't be taken well.

Posted by KCubsfan on 22 June 2013 - 12:22 AM

These are ideas that won't be popular but its not giving away players either.

Cubs Trade Starlin Castro to the Mariners for Brendan Ryan (temp at SS), Taijaun Walker RHP, Danny Hultzen LHP, Brad Miller SS, and Carter Capps RHP.

#36076 Obsessive College Pitcher Draft Watch

Here is a scouting report on Manaea. http://bigleaguefutu...rt-sean-manaea/

#35190 2 moves should do to contend by 2015

There is no way the Cubs can possibly get David Price that easily. Look at what the Royals had to give up for James Shields. They included the best prospect in the game in Wil Myers and they still had to give up more valuable pitching talent. Price to the Cubs cannot be done without depleting the farm.

Here is why you are wrong. Shield had a friendly contract Price will get a big pay day next year and the year after. Yes Price is a better pitcher but there are some serious money issues involved.

#34127 2 moves should do to contend by 2015

These are the moves that could speed up contention not including the draft.

1)trade Garza and Soriano to the Rangers for Mike Olt, Justin Grimm and Robbie Ross.
2. Trade Vogelbach, Soler and a PTBNL to the Rays for David Price.

The line for 2015 would look like
C: Castillo
1B: Rizzo
2B: Watkins
SS: Castro
3B: Olt
LF: BJax
CF: Almora
RF: Baez

#7445 Lineup for 2015

Posted by KCubsfan on 09 February 2012 - 11:40 PM

I saw this on Cubs Den and I thought would be fun to do here. The rules are you must use what the Cubs have in their system now no trading for players or Free Agents. I just going to go by position because batting order is a hard one.

C: Castillo
1B: Rizzo
2B: Torreyes
SS: Castro
3B: Baez
LF: Golden
CF: Szczur
RF: Brett Jackson

We could go with on with Pitching Rotation but I am not because it will depress me.
