TCR Upgrade over the Thanksgiving Break

There's going to be an upgrade done to the site sometime over the weekend, so apologies if it's down when you try to escape your in-laws . This could last anywhere from late Thursday night through Sunday(the upgrade and avoiding your in-laws) and I'm sure it's a guarantee that the Cubs will pull off some big news event just to mess with me.

See everyone on the other side and enjoy the holiday break.

Bruce Levine broke in ESPN 1000 with a 4 team trade involving Cubs, White Sox, Yankees and Blue Jays the Cubs get #&@(( @)*$++_!?>>>>...........

"Hello, Noah. This is God. Right. I want you to build an Ark. Righ-hh-t. It's going to rain for 40 days and 40 nights. R-i-g-h-t. And after that, I want you to build a World Series Championship team for the North Side of Chicago. R-r-r-r......i-g-h--t." Happy Thanksgiving!

"Hello, Noah. This is God. Right. I want you to build an Ark. Righ-hh-t...wait, isn't this an Egyptian folk tale? Umm...well, they didn't write it down. Actually, there has been a copy of this story found in the ruins of Alexandria R-r-r-r......i-g-h--t. Build your own damn boat...and gimmie some of those private stash apples...and a rib woman. R-r-r-r......i-g-h--t."

So you're saying it must be true because two different religions recorded the same event (and more if you count the Epic of Gilgamesh)?

Bruce Levine broke in ESPN 1000 with a 4 team trade involving Cubs, White Sox, Yankees and Blue Jays the Cubs get ---- not only do we get Halliday (and he agrees to a 3 yr deal) but the deal saves us enuf with Bradley and Sori off the books to get Holiday too. When Levine started splainin' how Hendry pulled that off he... (warning: system going down for 3 days of upgrading) Happy halliday and good turkeying everyone.

    yanks and wsox fans are both hyped up over this signing by the cubs.

    CRUNCH: I would be very surprised if the Cubs sign anyone with a QO attached, so that rules out Story and Correa. I could see the Cubs maybe acquiring Didi Gregorius from the Phillies as a Phillie salary dump if the Phils sign Correa or Story. Then the Cubs could flip Gregorius at the trade deadline. Gregorius is signed thru 2022 at about $14M. Gregorius could end up back with the Yankees for a year under a similar scenario.

    CRUNCH: Willson Contreras to the Yankees just makes too much sense.

    yan gomes 2/13m cubs.

    contreras trade watch underway...maybe...dunno if you can actually count on gomes to catch 120+ games a year.  he may be high-end backup/rest with powerful bench option between him and contreras.

    j.baez to DET....6/140m

    cubs are obviously in the market for a SS, especially since hoerner has been put on notice he could be a ultility player in 2022.  it's looking a lot like trevor story time unless he gets priced out.

    not too stoked on his bat, but his glove is solid.

    Have to admit that as someone that now lives in Texas and enjoys baseball in general (not just Cubs), will likely head to DFW instead of Houston this summer to get my baseball fix.  New stadium, some exciting new players.  Guess that covers $100 of those millions they just spent.

    I figured the Rangers would make a Jason Werth type of signing this offseason.  Overpay to bring in a big time free agent that signals that the organization is transitioning from rebuilding to trying to be competive.  Didn't expect them to double down on it.

    corey seager signed a deal for 32.5m a year and that means carlos correa is having a really great day.

     

  • Dolorous Jon Lester 22 hours 12 min ago (view)

    Texas has a wildly expensive middle infield. They've also set the market really high for the remaining SS. And they did it single handedly.

    c.seager goes to TEX for 10/325.

    they've committed to spend 1/2 billion this week (marcus semien added, too).

    meanwhile, the cubs complained to the local paper about how their new multi-million dollar sports betting lounge isn't a casino and they sent out a "cyber monday" ad to offer the great deal of it costing nothing to get on the season tickets waiting list.

    it already is and will continue to be a hell of a 24 hours.  maybe the cubs will *shrug* i dunno...do something worth talking about.

    m.scherzer mets 3/130m (wow)

    that's more than the entire payroll for PIT last season per year and only a bit less than what BAL, CLE, and MIA paid out.

    both are equally useful to a baseball team.

    STOP THE PRESSES! They signed someone. Some random lefty RP named Locke St.John.

    Sounds like a Bond villain.
