One odd fact was the big ESPN owners political expense report today had the highest-spending ricketts as laura donating to dem candidates, but that makes me question how they are compiling that because the ricketts family is the literal funding arm of the trump campaign and I'm sure there's gazillions of sicko dark money that they couldn't report on.

if the cubs are going to what they've been telegraphing and just stop spending money and being competitive for the foreseeable future i would like them to blow some money on keeping Big Rizz around even if he ages and stinks and can't move anymore because it is cool to have him on the team.

It seems to me at least that more media and even some mainstream media has become more labor-friendly in sports, although a baseball strike will also go right into the culture war woodchipper.

if lester wants to come back on a one-year deal i'm fine with it, he's a shell of his former self and can't get anyone out unless the ump gives him an extra inch on the corners, but the cubs have said they are not spending any money so they won't be able to replace him with a better pitcher so it's either Lester or some AAAA org guy who didn't win a World Series.

To keep Cubsposting, they were talking about trading Willson to save some money. He really improved his framing this year, and with his bat and arm I think he might be one of the more valuable Cubs.

Contreras was known to be on the trading block last offseason (and Bryant was very nearly shipped to the Phillies at the same time), but I imagine the Cubs are going to hold onto him because there's a non-zero chance that Bryant is traded, Rizzo walks and they need Bote and Caratini to take over third and first base full-time. Contreras has also, as you said, really improved as a receiver; a few years ago, Lester and I think Darvish absolutely refused to have him catch them and they were perfectly comfortable with him this year.

i'm pretty sure Caratini caught all of Yu's starts.

e: full-time first baseman Victor Caratini is so insane that even I can't fathom it.

There will probably never be a bonzanza of talent available as cheap as it will be this offseason and all a team needs to do is spend a normal amount on payroll or they can gut their teams and save $5 million on luxury tax.

apparently the guy who voted for Tepera was St. Louis Post-Dispatch writer Rick Hummel and he voted for him by accident because he clicked on the wrong name on a drop-down menu.

He could move to 2B and also has played some 3B in the KBO with success and scouts say he's got the arm for it. Ha-seong sounds like just a really good IF defender in general, loving get him and figure out his position later.

the cubs are going to bring in Dan Uggla to play second if he's available on a Veteran's Minimum.
