    The $$$$ will be spent!

    I’ve seen a lot of people say that based on our history, they don’t expect us to land any big names. If we end up with Ozuna, Wheeler, and Hamels, would you guys be happy with the offseason? Or do we have to land one of the top three guys mentioned above for the offseason to be considered a success?

    This question is for anybody, but which guys are considered “top of the market” guys? Are we just talking about Cole, Grandal, and Rendon?

    Perhaps they want to keep Dawkins and Walker getting as many CF reps as possible. When Robert moves up, it could create the chain reaction.

    Cease Struggling in AAA Recently

    This article says he was supposed to start tonight, but he’s not. Was the rotation shuffled a little but due to a rain out or something?

    6/20 Games

    Basabe removed between innings early on. Not sure if it’s injury related.

    Favorite under the radar prospects

    I actually can’t remember how to spell his name, but I’ve been following this outfielder from AA. It’s like Luey Robertson, or something like that. Seems to have great speed, but also hits for power. Plays center field.

    I know this is an old post/thread, but I’ve been thinking about Rendon lately and didn’t want to start a new thread. I know he’s a long shot to sign, but why couldn’t Rendon just play 2B, while keeping Moncada at 3B? I’d hate to move Moncada again, as he seems very comfortable this year. I’ve heard people comment that we are “wasting” Moncada at 3B, because if he put up those same offensive numbers while playing 2B, he’d be much more valuable. So wouldn’t Rendon playing 2B make him even more valuable than he already is? Disclaimer: I admittedly don’t know much about how good Rendon is defensively at 2B compared to 3B.

    I heard that, too...about seven posts before yours 😉

    The 2020 Rotation - What’s Your Plan?

    I’m really torn on signing Grandal. On one hand, it seems like a no brainer to want that bat in the lineup at a position like catcher. But I love McCann behind the plate, and I’m not talking about his offense. He has those intangibles that we haven’t seen in a catcher since AJ. I want him catching our pitchers at least 60% of the time next year, and I want to extend him beyond that.

    GT Chicago v Chicago, 6/18/19, 7:05 CT

    Any series where Giolito is pitching is about as good of a matchup as you can hope for, considering our other starters. I don’t even care who starts for the other team.

    Collins getting called up

    It means that anyone who believes Collins was actually 1-1 on our board is very gullible and therefore probably bad at poker.

    The 2020 Rotation - What’s Your Plan?

    Sign two of the following four pitchers: Wood, Bumgarner, Wheeler, Keuchel. The other three starters are Giolito, Kopech, Cease. When Rodon comes back, he either moves to the pen or takes the place of whoever of those five are injured/struggling. Lopez is in the pen.

    Jimmy Lambert

    That was my initial thought.
