Mark Polishuk's NL Central comments

Post by mikechamp »

These comments came from a chat with MLB Trade Rumors' Mark Polishuk that occurred on July 26. Not much NL Central content this week, so I included a bonus Q&A about a former NL Central outfielder, one about tiebreakers and another about... Marlins Man!

The link to the entire chat can be found here: https://www.jotcast.com/chat/mlbtr-live-chat-8405.html

Who Hangs up? Kris Bryant for Ender Newcomb and ptbnl.

Mark Polishuk
Unless that PTBNL is someone really awesome, the Cubs don't even give this a thought.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Who would you trade while maintaining a winning outlook? My choice is Darvish!

Mark Polishuk
Darvish is still owed a whole lot of money through 2023, that would be a very major investment for any team to make even in a normal season, let alone one with so much economic uncertainty. I'm not sure he'd have a ton of trade value even if he pitches very well.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Will Dietrich get an opportunity with the Cubs soon?

Mark Polishuk
It might take an injury or something to create an opening for Dietrich, since the Cubs already have a decent amount of depth at his positions.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
What former MLB star should have a movie biopic? Rickey Henderson? Griffey Jr? Cal Ripken?

Mark Polishuk
A Rickey Henderson biopic played as a comedy and based around all of the wacky Rickey anecdotes would be a blast.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
What happens when 5 teams all tie for a wild card spot?

Mark Polishuk
There won't be any tiebreaker games, so the league will go to some type of mathematical formula or extra tiebreaker (head-to-head record, record vs. common opponents, or something) to break the deadlock.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Should Marlins man get a cardboard cut out?

Mark Polishuk
Isn't Marlins Man a pretty wealthy guy? I'm surprised he hasn't arranged to have a cut-out of himself in every ballpark.
