back to back meh years + an arm scare at the end of last year definitely sinks Archer's value a bit. Cubs don't need to overpay for him.
Seen a few guys list the Cubs as their favorite for Ohtani. If true, that would mean Theo would be promising him he could play LF sometimes.
Ive always thought Rangers would re-sign Darvish and Otani would sign wherever Darvish goes. I know you've said multiple times you think Darvish will sign with Dodgers which might very well happen. It will be very interesting to see how this plays out.
He wants to play on the west coast, turning down the opportunity to play for two of the best organizations in baseball tells you all you need to know, I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't want to play for either of those teams. The problem is, so far the Marlins have been asking for a ton in return, but if they're reducing payroll from 140 to 90 like they said, I don't know how they do it without moving Stanton, so they'll end up moving him for a lesser package than what they might have otherwise gotten, other teams know he's likely to be dealt, so they'll low ball the Marlins, this will end up a disaster for Miami just like the Miggy trade
Stanton will opt out when Trout is a FA. Any team trading for him better not give much back in return.
I really don't want Cobb.
I hope that is just to replace Lackey... Cobb is not a front line pitcher.
I actually think Cobb would be a great 4th starter. His stuff is pretty decent and hed be making the move from facing the al east to the nl central.
I can’t believe Otani is a frontline starter, maybe he is, but there are a lot of unknowns.I’m sure their pitch to Otani will at least have a shot, but Cobb needs to be their 5th starter next year so that Quintana is not being relied upon as a front line starter because he’s not one.
