There is an obvious fit and Miller has been great … but boy was he down in 2018.
The Cubs really do have an excellent *volume* of legit prospects. They are, however, very thin on impact types.
The Astros had a deal for Harper at the deadline, but it was shot down by Nats ownership. Also, does 14 years scare you?
It was a year of change at Wrigley Field, so this is a very cool look.
Let’s put some real numbers on this discussion of the Cubs’ ability to spend.
Mmmhhmm. I see you, Royals.
A reminder about how contract negotiations are impacted by the initial information out there in the world.
Things fell off for a lot of Cubs in the second half, and Schwarber was no exception. Also, the Cubs have pitching prospects!
*Maybe* it really just will be an opportunity to focus on 2019, and then take things from there.
Don’t bring your goofiness around Bryzzo, folks.
An understandable strategy, but a scary one if you’re thinking long term.
Yeah, Kris Bryant will do that to ya!
Just as we suspected.
I like it. I also think you have to keep your Whit’s about you. Sorry, sorry, sorry. Trying to delete.
The Cardinals might be out on Harper – TBD – but they’re going to add somewhere.
That’s gonna make people do some serious speculating.
Yes, I see the article. I see the headline. I don’t see anything there.
It’s not a bad crop of free agents for the Cubs, actually, who really do need to explore this area. I’m glad to hear they will be.
Rules changes are coming as soon as next week, folks.
Who’s ready to see Carlos Zambrano at Spring Training with the Cubs?! He’s trying to come back.
That’s probably not a good sign.
A well-deserved honor!
If you do some squinting, it could work. Bad contract swap, for example?
The FanGraphs crew and the crowd take a crack at projecting contracts.
It seems legit, and hints at a very serious pursuit by the White Sox. (Wrong side of Chicago, Bryce!)
We don’t really want to see Schwarber traded anyway, to be honest.
Baseball is Fun: It’s not much, but it’s baseball.
Lukewarm Stove: Cubs Targeting Lefty Relievers, Goldschmidt’s Availability, Harper’s $500M Target, Grandal, More
The Cubs have been connected to a couple formerly elite lefty relievers for a long time. Is this the winter they land one?
The Dodgers are … broke? What in the world is going on? This cannot be legit, right?
Sure sounds like big changes are coming. Again.
