Two lists have the Hoerner, Marquez, Davis, Amaya group included.
This is actually a good thing.
Gennett looked like he was breaking out in 2017 and 2018 before a disastrous 2019 season.
Gotta talk about something else in the NL Central, so I’ll talk about the Brewers.
Gonna go slap some walls.
The Reds aren’t messing around this offseason, and Castellanos could help make that a brutal lineup to go with a quality pitching staff.
I don’t know what to say.
Bad weather isn’t going to stop Zobrist from making a difference.
Kintzler to the Marlins, the Cubs’ Bullpen Approach for 2021, Eff the Astros, and Other Cubs Bullets
Kintzler would’ve been a good re-signing, but I can see the upside in letting that group depart.
The series sure played out interestingly, too.
Marlins Want Another Cubs Reliever, Juiced Ball Staying at AAA, Bad Teammates, and Other Cubs Bullets
If they get a chance to close for the Marlins, can’t blame ’em.
The physical for Souza figures to be a little involved, given his catastrophic knee injury last year.
Any implications for the Cubs and Javy Baez?
It’s not a major move, but it’s one that would make a lot of sense.
Cubs Prospect Notes: Instructional Ball Begins, Nico Ranked, Farm System Good and Bad, Amaya, Changeups, More
Spring Training is around the corner, which doesn’t just mean various big league things – it means all kinds of prospecting things.
Getting a ton of talented arms in the door – but arms that need work – is probably a dream scenario for a guy who loves to do the work, like Hottovy.
Padres and Red Sox Have Reportedly Discussed Mookie Betts Trade (And Padres Have Also Considered Kris Bryant)
This turns into a whole lot of conversation about Wil Myers.
Sounds like he is still angry about whatever happened behind the scenes, but he doesn’t want to talk about it.
At a crossroads in the offseason, we can all see where this is pointing. What bitter scrutiny lies ahead for the Cubs if there are no changes.
TV Details, Mets Manager, Why No Astros Player Punishment, Trading with the Angels, and Other Cubs Bullets
I could see the Angels still needing some pitching. Also, why did the Astros players receive no punishment? A few good reasons, actually.
Strop could be down to just the Rangers and Marlins.
Please do not let Castellanos sign with another NL Central team for cheap.
The Cubs have some more minor leaguers to bring in for depth/competition.
It’s Wrigley North, and I’ll near nothing else on the matter.
The Questions Flying After the Braves’ Ozuna Signing and Its Relationship to the Bryant Service Time Grievance
If there is any relationship at all, that is.
Well that certainly complicates things with the Braves as a possible trade partner.
Another plus-spin reliever to add to the stockpile.
This is utterly insane and kinda perfect.
I wonder it, and I also get a little nervous about it, because we all want to see the Cubs and Baez stick together.
Reconsidering Leadoff, Reconsidering Braves as Trade Partners, Reconsidering Sammy, and Other Cubs Bullets
Second thoughts on these issues?
Arenado called the Rockies GM “very disrespectful,” says he’s been “crossed,” and this could get ugly.
Don’t expect an Arenado trade this offseason.
I want Strop to get what he can get … but please don’t wind up with the Brewers.
A whole lotta Cubs prospect notes to get into today.
