    MLB revenue by team US 2022 | Statista

    In 2022, the Yankees had 206 million more dollars of revenue than the Cubs.  That means that after all expenses are covered, they could spend an additional 205 million dollars on salaries and still make more profit than the Cubs.

    In 2022, the Dodgers had 130 million more dollars of revenue than the Cubs.  That means that after all expenses are covered, they could spend an additional 129 million dollars on salaries and still make more profit than the Cubs.

    In 2022 the Boston Red Sox had 61 million more dollars of revenue than the Cubs.  That means that after allexpenses are covered, they could spend an additional 60 million dollars on salareies and still make more profit than the Cubs.  The Cubs have won as many world series as Boston, but it was the Cubs that did it with less resources.

    willie hernandez died a couple days ago...a few days after his 69th birthday.

    rule 5 pick from philly, turned into a reliever, some good cubs years.

    he won CY and MVP in 1984 for DET in the emerging peak era of people realizing bullpen arms can be stars.  rollie fingers (1981), willie hernandez (1984), and dennis eckersley (1992) won CY+MVP.  jim konstanty was the last reliever before them to win a MVP (1950, no CY award in 1950).

    What a rough first year to be in charge of the draft. I’d give anyone a pass for that draft tbh. Appreciate the reminder he wasn’t in charge in 2019, I couldn’t recall.

    2019 was the last draft before DK. 2020 was the first with DK, and while it’s not going to look pretty when you look at the first three picks, he’s already gotten two guys from that draft to the majors (Mervis and Luke Little) while there have been none from 2019. Decent chance that DJ Herz and Porter Hodge make it eventually though.

    Was that Kan Dantrovitz’s first Cubs draft? Or the next one?

    Still some varying levels of hope for Strumpf, Schlaffer, Clarke, or Hill to carve out a role. Porter Hodge just got added to the 40 man so he might see some MLB time as soon as this year.

    But you’re right; trending towards total miss.

    that was a "what the hell?" pick in 2019.  he was pre-draft ranked in the 90s/low-100s...a guy expected to go round 2 or 3.

    i think dj herz is the only guy worth a damn out of that year's cubs draft class and his high walk rate might lead to being a pen guy if he can't sort that out.  that's WAS's issue to deal with, though.

    Mariners DFA former Cub 1st round pitching prospect Ryan Jensen. He had a walk rate over 17% but who knows if he can figure his wildness out. For the eternal optimists out there, Daniel Bard did, but it took forever. Someone may get lucky with him, or (thanks AZ  Phil) so be it.

    bo bichette and his weak arm + sketchy D being at 3rd isn't what i thought would be in play in a world where c.morel is deemed not worthy of 3rd.

    i don't know how his DWAR is so high.  he's not a good SS.  he's got above average range, but everything else (including throwing) isn't good.

    "Matt Cozzi@matt_cozzi
    I’m hearing the Cubs have talked to the Blue Jays about Bo Bichette, who would play 3B for the Cubs.

    This was first hinted at by @KFiddsyesterday and @jonmorosi mentioned the Cubs interest in Bichette last year.

    Bichette is signed through 2025 and would cost big return."
