Cubs Rumors: A Mookie Betts trade seems to be picking up steam

If the Boston Red Sox manage to trade Mookie Betts, there could be a trickle-down effect that could impact the Cubs and their hopes of trading Kris Bryant. Still awaiting discipline from Major League Baseball, the Boston Red Sox remain focused on re-shaping their organization under first-year Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom.

Chicago Cubs look to exceed initial Vegas win projections

Odds for the 2020 MLB season have started to trickle out in recent days. Recently, BetOnline released season win totals with the Cubs at 86.5. The Cubs are likely losing Pedro Strop, Nick Castellanos and maybe even Willson Contreras or Kris Bryant due to trade. This is a team that won just 84 games last year and […] Chicago Cubs look to exceed initial Vegas win projections - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Brailyn Marquez is among three Cubs in Baseball America’s Top 100 prospects

Brailyn Marquez is among three Cubs in Baseball America’s Top 100 prospects

Brailyn Marquez pitching for Myrtle Beach in August 2019 | Larry Kave/Myrtle Beach Pelicans Looks like the Cubs system is improving. It’s been sort of an axiom that the Cubs farm system has been in decline since the “graduation” of players like Javier Baez, Kris Bryant, Kyle Schwarber, Willson Contreras and others. But per Baseball America’s new Top 100 prospects list (subscription required), perhaps the system is beginning to produce good players who are nearly big-league ready. Brailyn Marquez (37), Nico Hoerner (40) and Brennen Davis (94) are the Cubs in BA’s Top 100 this...

Chicago Cubs: Five potential trades to make with the National League West

In the last of a six-part series featuring prospective trades with every team in baseball, Kris Bryant takes center stage in several real-life rumors that could see the former MVP in a different city.

Kris Bryant is the answer for the Atlanta Braves, just not at third base

The Atlanta Braves have a need for a big time bat, and Kris Bryant may be the best solution at this point, but just not at third base. The next big question to be answered in the baseball world should be the grievance between Kris Bryant and the Chicago Cubs.

Maybe Kris Bryant will be a Cub in 2020 after all

Maybe Kris Bryant will be a Cub in 2020 after all

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports There were some clues at the Cubs Convention All winter, we have been deluged by rumors that Kris Bryant would be traded, presumably so the Cubs could get their payroll below the first luxury tax level of $208 million. There have been rumors connecting him with the Braves, Nationals, Phillies, Mets and others. But read carefully these remarks from Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein at the Cubs Convention Saturday: “We expect that (Bryant) would be our third baseman, but we’ve been open and transparent about the fact we’ll talk about all...

2020 Cubs Convention Saturday open thread

The Convention will be going on all day Saturday. ICYMI, Friday night a bit of news was made at the Opening Ceremony of the Cubs Convention as the team’s new TV channel, the Marquee Network, got booed when Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts mentioned it in his opening remarks. Besides that, Ryan Dempster’s “Off The Mound” show didn’t make any news, unlike last year when Kris Bryant called St. Louis “boring.” Dempster tried to make up for that by saying nice things about the Cardinals. Other than that, his conversations with Tom and Laura Ricketts, Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer, former...

With Josh Donaldson signed, could the Cubs deal Kris Bryant to the Braves?

With Josh Donaldson signed, could the Cubs deal Kris Bryant to the Braves?

Photo by Quinn Harris/ The KB offseason saga continues. Josh Donaldson, who played for the Atlanta Braves in 2019, is now a member of the Minnesota Twins: Josh Donaldson’s deal with the Minnesota Twins will pay him $84 million over the first four years and includes a $16 million club option with an $8 million buyout. In total, it’s $92 million guaranteed with a chase to go to $104 million if Donaldson hits escalators on the option.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) January 15, 2020 Seems like a good deal for Donaldson, who turned 34 last month. But that leaves the Braves, who have...

Rooting for Kris Bryant to win his grievance

Rooting for Kris Bryant to win his grievance

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/ Kris Bryant’s pending grievance is one of the most important decisions in MLB/MLBPA relations in years Kris Bryant’s grievance — the ongoing dispute between the Chicago Cubs’ third baseman and the Chicago Cubs over service time manipulation — has been one of the significant stories of the MLB offseason, mainly cast by writers as being a barrier to the resolution of the third base market. The Cubs have been rumored to be willing to deal their star third baseman, but until his grievance is ruled upon, teams don’t know whether they’d be getting one...

Chicago Cubs: Latest Nolan Arenado trade rumors are absurd

A rumor that appeared on Saturday had the Chicago Cubs interested in acquiring Nolan Arenado and keeping Kris Bryant. There’s no way this could happen. If the past two-plus months are any indication, the Chicago Cubs are currently unable (or at least unwilling) to spend any money on major league talent this offseason, not even […] Chicago Cubs: Latest Nolan Arenado trade rumors are absurd - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Happy birthday, Bill Madlock | Photo by Louis Requena/MLB via Cubs and MLB news and notes - Javier Báez, Javier Báez, the original Mad Dog, and other bullets Kris Bryant is probably not going to be the everyday center-fielder, whether or not Nolan Arenado finds his way to Chicago’s north side for home games. I’m certainly not the first, nor the last, to say that, or even to write it, especially since Bruce Levine recanted his testimony. Which is too bad, because as usual we are starved for content, or at least good content. We don’t even have a catalog of Matt Spiegel’s...

Chicago Cubs: Think twice before you trade Kris Bryant this offseason

Well, we can check one box off in the offseason of Kris Bryant. The Cubs and Bryant avoided an arbitration hearing, agreeing to a one-year, $18.6 million contract for 2020 ahead of Friday’s deadline. Now, we all anxiously await a resolution to his service time grievance. Said grievance has loomed over Theo Epstein and the […] Chicago Cubs: Think twice before you trade Kris Bryant this offseason - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
