    Future White Sox Lineup #GetExcited

    While you are probably right, Leury would really, really help the Cubs right now.

    If it is him and Abreu, I think that is ok in the offensive side. I think, and it isn't a world shattering opinion, but I think they really need to add a high level SP. I kind of doubt they will though. In which case, we have to pray that Kopech is everything that his potential hints at. But adding Madrigal, Robert and Calhoun (as well as new look Collins) to this offense would certainly make it more interesting.

    Today, Marcel Ozuna said that it is his priority to stay with the Cardinals and that it is his agents job to make it happen.

    It is so frustrating that the organization continues to scoff at what is probably the best way to add impact talent. I get that they are young and there is a larger chance the guys don't pan out. But cmon. The entire pool is like 5.4 million. Why would you not invest it as aggressively as possible.

    JD Martinez

    Haha. Want to bet? JD has the permanent bunt sign.

    It was one thing to trade the slots when they were in penalty. To do it now is shameful, ignorant and lazy. If that is indeed how they proceed, it is a damning evidence to the competence and will to compete for this organization.

    No I didn't. Did you forget that he was completely overused the entirety of the playoffs? Do you think that may have had anything to do with it? Oh, and he was overused because he was their only reliable reliever. I don't know what you mean by they ransacked the NL. In that DS, the Cubs won 3 one run games. Seems like an elite reliever would help in those games.

    What? Yeah. I'm sure the Cubs would throw away their first championship in what was it 111 years or something? Based on their weirdness, and their completely ineffective bullpen, I'm not sure they win the NLDS matchup without Chapman. And in a WS that went extra innings on 7 games, taking their best reliever out of the mix, and really their only effective one, would have resulted in disaster, I think at least. I think it would have to be really really extreme to be an overpay for a WS title.

    Not when you are on the brink. If you are on the edge, it is worth it to add that extra piece to the puzzle. I bet the Cubs are happy with the Chapman trade, and the Astros with getting Verlander, the Royals acquiring Cueto, the Red Sox with Sale (though they also made significant trades for Porcello and Kimbrel). There are certainly different points of view and strategies that can be effective, but when the Sox are close, I hope they are willing to make moves that put them in the best possible position.

    I disagree. Teams that are ready to win are going to make moves to win. You have to think long term, but when a team is in their window where they can win, if that is their ultimate goal, they have to make moves that improve them in the short term even if it hurts them in the long term.

    Is there any reason to expect that Nimmo or Conforto will be available? I don't think I see the Mets selling off. You could probably get Cespedes for nothing...

    Haven't read through all this, but I would have to bet on Leury.
