Cubs expected to sell a lot, including Bryant, Kimbrel

Recommended Posts

Bryant hit just .114 in June with a 27 wRC+. And here I thought Jose had a bad June. That horrible month might be a hit to his sky high trade value from the first 2 months of the season.

cubs are the perfect example of why the sox need to hold onto vaughn, cease, etc.

This is funny because to me the Cubs did hang onto guys like that, they got rid of excess that was 2 years away. There was a time when Cubs had a surplus of promising position players and people thought they’d trade to balance roster but they kept all of them. That was right move, and losing gleybar probably not near the gut punch they once thought.

The Quintana trade definitely shortened their window by a few years. Although you could argue that had they gotten the Quintana they thought they were getting, they could have gotten to a WS in 17 and 18.

I think we see Sox / Cubs rumors but they’ll be plants used by us in an attempt to suppress other prices

They need to sell everything that isn't under contract for 22.

I mean he's 24 still.  They would be in a helluva lot better shape if they had Dylan, Torres and Eloy right now.  They thought they were trading away "excess" but they were trading away their next foundation.

Imagine Eloy going back into the ivy at that field.

Although this is just a proposal from a caller on the Score, it's comically bad and figured it should be shared if anyone is looking for a good laugh this afternoon.

I’m sorry, but did Bernstein and his co-host just that the price for Joc Pederson would be Cease+.  If so, 🤣🤣🤣

Bernstein and Rahimi should be fired on the spot for thinking Peterson is worth more than Cease. The level of incompetence in that thought process is mind-numbing.

This is the most Score call I've ever heard.

Meatball fan throws out dumb and lopsided trade idea.
Hosts somehow think that his trade idea wasn't lopsided enough and thinks it should only be worse.

I pray to god or Bernstein needs to call it quits ASAP.  That being said, it doesn’t sound like it from that clip.

Unless Bernstein and Leila have mastered a deadpan sarcasm delivery, they sound 100% genuine. If so, that's why I generally consider radio talkshow hosts to have zero brain cells.

Or they think Cease sucks and has minimal value. That is a valid thought. 

I'm not sure that Cease doesn't completely suck. He looks like he might be Lopez part deux. 

Dylan Cease is English for Daniel Cabrera. Great stuff, has no idea where it's going.

No it isn't.  You might not value him at top prospect cost, but he is LONG above dumped for a shitty player with an expiring contract.  4 years of control for even a mediocre starter is FAR and above the return for a Joc Peterson.

Cease's numbers haven't even been that bad since the sticky ban. Whoever trades a 25 year old pitcher on pace for a 4 WAR season for a near replacement level outfielder with 3 months of control is an absolute idiot. To think Pederson demands more than that is just incredibly stupid.

None of us have any idea how the industry values Cease. They might value him similar to Lopez after 2018.

It's a thought, mostly a dumb one. Joc has been bad this year, and in no way costs Cease+.

You're acting like the Twins have a bad offense, they don't. And he did fine against them the week before that.
