No.

But somebody will make the postseason, even though that's never meant less.

Padres probably the best team in baseball right now. At least in lockstep with LA. Braves probably a slight step behind now.

Cubs traded arguably the best pitcher in the NL last season and didn't even get a top 10 prospect from the Padres. lmaolmaolmaolmao

Call me crazy, but I think it’s bad when teams that could choose to win are instead choosing to lose to save money. Blame COVID all you want, this isn’t happening in any other sport.

Padres got Snell and Darvish and only gave up 1 of their top 7 prospects. And the prospects they didn’t give up are in the top 100-150 range of all MLB prospects.

Insanely smart.

2021 is the year the Cubs fought tooth and nail to keep Kris Bryant for. Illegally juking service time and taking him to a nasty arbitration process.

And now they’re folding like a Chinese motorcycle. What a broken ass sport.

Baseball is in such a bad place right now.

It didn't feel as bad when just the Marlins or Rays would dump players for financial reasons, even though that was pretty silly in its own right. But when the Cubs are doing it, it's just terrible for the sport.
