    Quoted for MFT.

    Few weeks ago I read in an article Castellanos would be between $15-20 million and Rendon would be $20-25 million.

    Given that we’re expected to have $60 million to use in FAs, that’s $35-45 million.

    If we keep them on the low end and let Q go, that’s around $20-30 million to still spend on extensions or FAs

    Wonder if we’d go crazy and get Cole

    If you haven't heard, the window was closed in 2017, evidently.

    When .104 lifetime hitter Jon Lester hits a homerun and thinks he's a proffesional hitter

    Oh I agree, he isn’t worthy of starting for this team. But to think we could’ve got anything worthy to replace anyone who already plays significantly for Montgomery is HILARIOUS.

    (I also don’t think it should be let go the team-player Kemp is...Jonathan Herrera didn’t catch any crap in 2015 for serving the exact same purpose)

    It's not worth arguing anything with Jack. He's always right. No matter what.

    I took a little nap and missed Tony Kemp hitting the go ahead run in a winner take all game for the NL Central? Damn can’t believe the Cubs are three outs from clinching a playoff spot.

    The Cubs aren’t a top five team. The Cubs have minor league development issues. The Cubs are trying, and failing, to develop impact arms internally. The 2016 Cubs were an elite team. Turning Mike Montgomery into Tony Kemp is not good roster management. Tony Kemp is not a good player.

    I mean, take a shot at the other side of any of those crazy stances I’ve taken.

    Did you also take a nap when we went on our 5 game win streak last week or was that just a weird coincidence you weren’t around when things were going well?

    Jonathan Herrera was terrible, he had four at bats in Sep that year after Javy was called back up. The fact that the Cubs now have a similar player getting big at bats is a good sign of why their window of title contention, that opened after they took off in Aug of 2015, has closed.

    I’m going to disagree with you for months, claiming you’re wrong (and by default I’m correct), then complain about you like a little ***** when it turns out otherwise. I am ISUCubswin.
