As the Cubs dismantle their World Series team for lovely prospects so the ghoulish owner can save money, here is a megathread for Cubsposting where we can melt down. Rizzo is gone. Bryant is next. Maybe Javy or even they are insane enough to trade Willson or Cool Kyle? Anyway, I'm going to go nutso about it.

gently caress to the Ricketts family.

Tonights Cubs @ Nationals game is going to be incredibly depressing. Bring out ownership of both teams and let fans boo them.

He never strikes out, he's fast, and he hits for contact, plus he's team controlled through 2026, so he's definitely a good pickup. I'm happy with the Chafin/Kimbrel/Tepera return and I could give a poo poo less about them, relievers are rarely around long enough to get attached.

Yeah. I'm legit excited for him and he's MLB ready (although currently injured) and under team control until 2025 I believe.

Madrigal reminds me of early career Jose Altuve. That's a really good player to have!

No sense of smell? No problem! Just take one dose of Dr. Weinstein's miracle cure and you'll feel right as rain!

Remember when the cubs were a major market team and didn't trade everyone not named Kris Bryant

So long Kris Bryant, you are incredibly good and consistent and seem like a really nice dude.

This team is literally at a AAA level.

I have legitimately never seen a team firesale so quickly than the Cubs did. Feels like a massive middle finger to their fanbase.

It's amazing what they can do with computers these days.



The Ricketts suck. Since they didn't want to spend enough to make the team better, tearing it apart was the only way to go. Here comes another 3ish years of sucking and maybe they decide to spend money again. Glad I went to a game on Wednesday and saw the team before it was dismantled.

I hope that hotel was worth it Tom.

Same. I had told myself that they'd probably off-load Bryant and Kimbrel, possibly Rizzo, maybe Contreras (not sure this was reasonable, but it was in my head), but that that'd probably hold on to Baez. So seeing El Mago go... gently caress you Ricketts. gently caress you.

I've been wanting to get a Baez jersey for a long time and hadn't; part of me wants to now, but part of me doesn't want to give the Ricketts any more money.

Say what you will about how the Rickettses have operated the baseball team, but you have to give them this: They somehow managed to find a way to make Wrigleyville significantly shittier too
