Doesn't sound like it took all that much. Really, really wish the Cardinals would have done this rather than making their top priority signing two old guys to expensive PR contracts.
cubs are rebuilding so the cards don't have to do anything for awhile

I'm sure fans of the Cleveland Baseball Club are excited that their owners just saved $44 million, though.

Are they rebuilding? They have all their good players still. Darvish was/is going to decline at some point. Maybe not this year but soon and it's good to shed the contract. They still have their entire infield in their prime.

Their three best players coming off bad to mediocre seasons (Baez, Rizzo and Bryant). It was a short season, so it could've just been an extended slump. Or....

They owe Jon Lester $10mil, so that's nice.

Lindor was a great fit for the Cards. Pretty pathetic indeed

And they have another kid thats pretty much a Hendrinks clone with a tad more velo on his sinker. Pretty solid mid-Sept numbers, and even had a CG on 9/13 vs MIL. He is called Alec Mills.

Yeah, he’s the “lol” in my post.

Because he sucks.

Cubs are looking to move wilson contreras and would not be the least bit surprised to see one of baez, bryant or rizzo get moved.

i gotta admit, i was on the "cubs are going to run the central for a long long time" bandwagon based solely on their ability to spend, but epstein gonna epstein i guess.

Kudos to those trying to talk some of us off the ledge.

Screw the cards front office though. They will only see this as an opportunity to remain mediocre.
