  1. I dunno.. I think you may be overselling the asking price. Realmuto had 2 full years and was coming off an All-Star season. Bryant only has one year left and is coming off a poor shortened season. I don't think it would take any of the three names you mentioned. Maybe something with Harrison, DIaz, lower level pitching prospects, etc.? I don't pretend to be a trade expert but like noted before, if we suck, he can fetch us a decent haul at the deadline. If he has a great year, that means we probably had a great year so I'd be okay with it, and who knows, maybe he'd sign here

  2. That's true, but with the flood of relief talent on the market, I highly doubt Kintzler and his dangerous peripherals sign for anything more than $2.5M.

  3. I agree. And this seems like they’re trying to get him off their backs. He didn’t leave his last start on pretty terms and maybe they think he’s a toxic dude to have around. I mean, he does like like the kind of dude that finishes the cookies and puts the empty box back in the pantry. Fuck’m!

  4. Maybe I'm still shell shocked from Loria, but that trade seems a little Loria-esque for the Cubs. You make good points with Realmuto so I could be off. I'm no expert either. Maybe the answer is more relative to perception than an actual market? IMO the Realmuto trade was decent but I think we could have gotten more. We took all the risks, Sixto had an injury that put him out a years time? Alfaro seemed like a filler for the position we needed. I think we could have gotten more. Bryant is a 3X all star, MVP and rookie of the year. He's not going to fly under the Cubs radar.

  5. You made a typo. I believe you meant to type "missed"

  6. Risky move. It just takes one other team to offer him even 100k more than $4M and Kintzler is gone, especially feeling slighted that the team he wanted to stay with thought he wasn't worth keeping immediately.

  8. Learn to play the guitar! Lol no but even in a normal year the “offseason” doesn’t really get going till the winter meetings and this year is proving to be even more tepid given the financial restraints. I’d say you’ll see a lot of fringe players taking lower than usual offers early in the offseason but the top players may hold out longer into late January/February to try to get money that teams will more than likely not pay. So it may be pretty boring for quite a while man! Lol I also feel there will be a lot of good Players who were holding out for multi year deals but will ultimately take a one year deal to let the market reset. And that’s where hopefully the marlins make some quality additions even if they have to overpay on that one year a little bit. It’s more important than ever in their history that we keep the momentum going and field a good team. Take as many of those one year deals on the upper echelon talents who happen to fall in that bucket. Let’s see!
