2015 Winter Meetings (Day Three)
Maddon finally gets his Zobrist, Castro is a Yankee, and Dusty Baker reminds everyone why he should never be allowed near a microphone.
In other news, the Cards traded Jay for the soon-to-be All-star Gyrko, and AZ meets Altanta's asking price for Miller.
Supposedly, the Cubs are not done, so let's get at it!

at least they gave up a chunk of nothing for him (clayton daniel, no power (not even doubles power), no speed, middle IF/OFr).
it would probably be better appreciated by fans if the entire offseason wasn't stuff like this.
it's obvious the front office is trying to work with what they have...which is little to nothing from the ownership.

"Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that the Cubs have "considered/discussed" Jacoby Ellsbury."

cubs sign tyler olsen to a minor league contract, 650K if he makes the majors.
evidently the cubs are sourcing 2020 players out of that trash can houston was banging on.

Both piggy-backing off of CubbyBlue. Or at least I was.

Some possible price tags for Kris Bryant (but only if he loses his grievance and has two years of club control left):

Well done! 👏 Astro-isks beats TrashCanGate in my mind.

Wouldn't be shocked if they did punt this season. Someone is getting moved - it would shock me more if they stay status quo with respect to KB and/or Contreras. Still can't picture them trading Javy

I would think the starting point in the discussion of a return package for Kris Bryant would be a young MLB (or near MLB-ready) SP who is both more MLB-ready than Brailyn Marquez and with a higher upside than Adbert Alzolay or Alec Mills, meaning Ian Anderson or Kyle Wright (ATL), Zac Gallen (AZ), Spencer Howard (PHI), or Luis Patino (SD), presuming those teams would have interest in acquiring KB in a trade.

Acuna, Albies and maybe one or two of their high end pitching prospects should seal the deal -- and that's if KB wins his grievance case!

I'm most curious what happens with Beltran as new Mets managerial hire.
