Sanchez and Stroman would be a helluva deal imo, I imagine Blue Jays would only give up one of them though.
The belief is that the Jays have been talking to the Cubs about right-hander Jeff Samardzija, who was 8-13 with a 4.34 ERA in 33 starts for the Cubs last season. He walked 78 and struck out 214 in 2132/3 innings.
All the Cubs want are top prospects Aaron Sanchez, Marcus Stroman and a third player.
“But the acquisition price doesn’t work for us right now,” Anthopoulos said about any deals on the table. “I don’t know if I could quantify how far off that they might be.
well Ervin Santana, Garza and Ubaldo don't have jobs yet, so I don't think it's that slow.
The plan for if none of their prospects turn into anything is to be a terrible team, just like every other team's plan is if none of their prospects turn into anything.
You can't be good with a farm system that produces nothing.
i wonder what the "plan" is if baez/soler/almora/bryant aren't 1/2 - 3/4 effective...and if none are, then what...
When Castro becomes Pedroia, Rizzo becomes Ellsbury, Samardzija becomes Lester, Raley becomes Buchholz, etc. the Cubs can do what the Red Sox did in 2013...
Rahm telling roofies, behind closed doors, sue and your f'd.
Also telling Cubs to get shovels in the ground.
Interesting part to watch out for, more night games.
Cubs insiders now believing day games disadvantage to Cubs.
Very solid the previous three seasons.
you can pretty much forget about lucas simms unless the braves lose their f'n mind. tommy la stella is rather boring...average D, low-mid power...
it seems like if they try to work out something with the braves it's going to be a bunch of shot-in-the-dark arms rather than centering around a single strong arm or bat...unless the braves are stupid enough to throw in l.simms.
it's an interesting system...underwhelming, though.
braves do need pitching, but with minor/medlin/teheran up top and a.wood in the mix they're not desperate for top pitching.
a chance to pick up a sub-.700 OPS hitter...what's not to like.
this is the cubs.
it's important to tank the team for a 5th year in a row because that's a good thing.
look at BOS in 2012 after finishing 69-93. they took 2013 off to rebuild because it makes sense in their market even though they free'd up a lot of loot for 2013. they might have to wait until 2018 to re-emerge. they could win another world series one day. eyes on the prize. there's only 1 way to do it.
88 ERA+ last season?
Benoit with offers from Indians and Padres, 2/14M, Padres may be offering 3rd year option

What's going on with Maholm? Why is there so little interest in him?
1/6M for Mike Morse from the Giants
