Padres receive: Kris Bryant

Cubs receive: Taylor Trammell OF (MLB #28 prospect), Luis Patino RHP (MLB #30 prospect), Adrian Morejon LHP (Padres #7 prospect)

Are you really a Cubs fan?

2.) 05 Oct 2019 06:44:13
Sorry cubbies fan, you can’t get anything by “thestatbook” lol I’m sure he’ll tell you all about why that can’t happen and why they need to throw in tatis if they want Bryant.

Where I should I send the rent money, ryeguy?

4.) 08 Oct 2019 03:59:27
And, ryeguy (sourdough is better, btw), I tend to look at what the cost is beyond the "fairness" or silly "surplus value" arguments people make on here.

If your team had a guy who is ranked 9th among hitters since 2016; who has won rookie of the year and MVP; and who helped bring a WS to Chicago, you probably wouldn't want to trade him for a handful of prospects, no matter how highly ranked they are.

You'd want young, controllable MLB talent.

It makes sense that you don't understand this; the Padres haven't had anyone to be excited about or play decent baseball in San Diego since this year (and even that's not going to sustain itself) . So you don't understand that guys have value based on bringing success to your team, but why would the Cubs trade Bryant for this?

He was a full win better than any player in San Diego this year (and should positively regress next season) . He's a generational talent and the Cubs won't trade him.

And look, I know the Padres won't trade Tatis. I'm not stupid. But they also won't acquire someone like Bryant or Lindor without giving him up. I can pretty much guarantee that. The Cubs and Indians have too much talent on their big league teams to waste it by trading superstars for project pieces.

Turn off The Show and come back to reality, please.

This would be a good trade for the Cubbies. Cubs desperately need a CFer and they need young, controllable pitching. Bryant and Boras are going to want much more than he is worth, especially with his injury history I wouldn’t do it. San Diego just signed Machado and I don’t want Bryant running around the OF too often so not sure how this makes sense for SD.

6.) 08 Oct 2019 22:47:26
You're not sure that the Padres acquiring a guy who was objectively better than any player on their roster in 2019 for a handful of guys who are basically lotto tickets at this point is good for San Diego?

7.) 08 Oct 2019 22:56:09
There is plenty of talent on the San Diego prospect list. Impact talent. not just tatis is what my point is. Just because you know tatis and have seen him play your all over him and saying how the padres would have to give him up in a trade. But wait till you see Patino and I’m sure you’ll be saying the same for him too. or Gore, or Abrams or urias etc. The padres could acquire ANYONE they want without giving up tatis in a trade. that's MY POINT.

8.) 09 Oct 2019 00:20:12
I suppose you can shift Machado to short and put Tatis at 2nd. I really like Trammell (who could impact in 2020) and Patio is really polished for 19 year old. If I’m SD I don’t want to make this trade for 2 seasons of KB.

9.) 09 Oct 2019 03:22:56
No, no they cannot. I didn't realize that the Padres' blatant incompetency is creeping into their fans' mindsets, but here we are.

The Padres won't be acquiring top 10 players in the majors for guys that are 2-3 years away from the majors. The Cubs and Indians want guys who are both good (so not Urias) and also can contribute positively right away (again, not Urias, or Trammell, or Patiño) .

If you refuse to accept a Tatis trade, fine, then give up Paddack and Gore. Otherwise, be okay with someone like Matt Boyd or Caleb Smith. And be ready to give up marquee talent even just for those guys.

I think you vastly under-estimate how tough it is to acquire premium talent via trades (there's a reason we rarely see guys like Lindor traded), and you vastly over-estimate the strength of the Padres' system.

10.) 09 Oct 2019 23:45:19
GORE, PATINO, URIAS, and TRAMMELL will all be in he bigs this season, so that’s that.

11.) 10 Oct 2019 13:46:38
Well, perhaps, but that's because the Padres have zero risk bringing them up. It's not like they will be competing any time soon. That team has more holes than a Jussie Smollett hoax.

They likely wouldn't be more than a September call up in Chicago or Cleveland. So there's that.

Cubs Offseason

Wade Davis 4 years, $62 million
Alex Cobb 4 years, $56 million
Tony Watson 2 years, $13 million
Cameron Maybin 1 year, $5 million
Rene Rivera 1 year, $2 million

Javier Baez or Ian Happ as main piece for another controllable starter or more bullpen help.


1.) 18 Nov 2017 12:45:00
1-I think Cobb ends up getting more

2- Just curious as to what Cubs fans think about leadoff. If it's not addressed via FA/ trade, who you got in that spot?

Phillies get: Gerrit Cole

Pirates get: Sixto Sanchez RHP (#46 MLB), Jorge Alfaro C (#61 MLB)

The Phillies may go after Arrieta/Darvish in free agency, but for a young up-and-coming team, it makes more sense to me to go after a younger option on the trade market like Cole, who shouldn't come with the price tag of Archer.


1.) 10 Nov 2017 18:23:20
I hope this is a start of a trade. Cole is worth way more than this.

2.) 10 Nov 2017 18:45:23
Definitely written by a Cubs fan.

3.) 18 Nov 2017 18:02:32
Right. So you expect the Phils to toss their 2018 starting catcher and their best pitching prospect for a guy with two bad years under his belt? Idiotic trade.



08 Nov 2017 23:36:37
Cubs get: Chris Archer, Dan Jennings

Blue Jays get: Ian Happ, Victor Caratini


1.) 09 Nov 2017 04:03:28
For Archer, we're talking at least two of Happ/ Baez/ Schwarber/ Russell. Plus probably a few good prospects as well.

2.) 09 Nov 2017 05:04:38
Did I miss something? Since when is Archer on the Blue Jays?

DBacks get: Wade Davis

Cubs get: Taylor Clarke RHP (DBacks #5), Jared Miller LHP (DBacks #10)

Davis is a rental guy, but do the Diamondbacks really trust Fernando Rodney to get meaningful outs in October?


1.) 10 Jul 2017 21:26:26
Your really think Cubbies become sellers?

2.) 10 Jul 2017 23:38:19
Not bad but I don't see the Cubs getting to the point before July 31 where they are selling.

3.) 11 Jul 2017 17:12:19
I would just like them to gauge the market for Davis. He's a rental and I'd like to see Edwards Jr. get some extended time in the closer role.

McCutchen isn't going to bring back Stroman. The Blue Jays wouldn't even give him up for Blackmon.

I'm not arguing the value isn't fair one way or another, the O's just don't have a need for another left-handed corner outfielder. They don't like Kim against lefties and Smith is penciled in over in right field. They would go with a right-handed hitter.

He's had less than 600 MLB AB's and is only 23. Most prospects would just be getting ready for their first crack in the MLB.

The Orioles are more likely to pursue a right-handed bat to platoon with Kim/ Smith in the corner outfield spots.
