Hopefully Rick Hahn is calling his north side brethren and seeing what the price is for Schwarber.

Yes, I dont care what people say about the kid. He is down and out right now but I would put my money on him coming back and being an offensive monster eventually.

I mean, sure, if they would do a Schwarber for Fulmer swap or something to that effect I'd take it. But no way I'm giving up a Q or even Robertson unless I'm getting more back. Theo has absolutely no leverage in that trade scenario.

That's actually kind of a good idea.

A trade of Schwarber for Robertson is not something the Cubs would do but I would jump at that in a second. Robertson has no future with this Sox team and they obviously havent been bowled over with other deals. I think its a risk worth taking to get a guy with Schwarbers potential.

If you take away the fact he is a Cub, the history of everyone overly hyping him as a current player, and the fact a scout called him Babe F'ing Ruth I think a lot of people wouldnt be so hard on him as a prospect around here.

What makes anyone think he would improve in the Sox system? Based on history and him not being a pitcher I'd say no. Great move to send him down tho'. Of course that would be a great trade.

I would love a Schwarber for Robertson deal.

I really think the Sox can do better than Schwarber in a Robertson trade. Plus, where does Schwarber fit? Don't the Sox already have enough DH types as it is? Lastly, year 1 of arbitration starts in 2019 for Schwarber. Just not a great overall fit for this rebuild IMO.

Well obviously. We've seen Schwarber be great before. We've never seen Fulmer be great. I can't imagine who wouldn't still take Schwarber over Fulmer at this point.

Schwarber is a DH. It's idiotic that he's on the Cubs. A lot of this blame goes the JM, too. That guy was insistent on making Schwarber leadoff for no good reason. He's a slugger. Bat him fifth.

The theory is he would get more fastballs leading off and benefit...it worked for Rizzo, fwiw.

Schwarber was still getting his walks but that average was unsightly that even in fWAR world it eventually became impossible to overlook. Probably wasn't comfortable there, and it drew even more attention to his struggles than hitting 6th - 9th.
