This is a conversation that should be had. Just putting it out there.
Category: Chicago Cubs Rumors
It’s not like the need vanished.
Merrifield was formerly rumored as a Cubs trade target, but that was probably long in the past. What about extension comps?
There’s not a lot of time left if you’re going to bring in a new catcher to contribute in a big way this year.
A reunion in trade? Well, it only makes sense if the Cubs actually get value.
What, don’t want to trade for David Bote anymore?
If true, the Cubs no longer have much if any IFA bonus pool space remaining in this period. Which is good!
Now is the time for the Cubs to finally add some depth to the bullpen, right?
Well, then, this is certainly something to watch. How much value could the Cubs actually get for Bote?
If money really is so tight, would saving some millions on Zobrist actually be worth it?
There’s a far more logical explanation why rumors about the Cubs are still out there.
The Cubs’ Chairman and Owner speaks on the topics hot on everyone’s mind. Will you leave satisfied?
Jed Hoyer Speaks: Payroll Level, Internal Improvements, Bullpen, Russell’s Conditional Second-Chance, More
Is the payroll level sufficient? Concerns about the bullpen? Russell’s standing?
Machado would be 32 – THIRTY-TWO – in the final year of that contract.
Guys like Jose Iglesias and Freddy Galvis have remarkably similar profiles to the player Addison Russell has been.
Like, that question is not going to happen? Or Joe knows for sure the Cubs are definitely out?
Maybe this will get the ball rolling for mystery teams that want to play off of that offer …
I’m skeptical of that one, and I’m not alone.
They’re looking for a new third baseman.
What does a modestly good offseason even look like at this point?
Things are starting to move, sure, but the most of the big dogs are all still available.
It’s what this has felt like for a long time now, but there’s your report flat out saying it.
I’m not sure the Cubs are in this market anymore anyway.
They can do this. They can add some utility. I know it.
Things seem to be heating up lately.
I have so many questions that I’m not sure we’ll ever have answered.
Warren feels like a roll of the dice given how he’s pitched outside of New York. But the Cubs have to roll SOME dice eventually.
Happy Monday, my friends. This is ugly, if we buy it.
The Cubs’ top man just got into a huge range of topics on the radio.
If you’re buying low, might as well try to get a guy with upside.
