He refused the Giants last year, the team that won the world series. So I doubt he had interest in coming here.

The Cubs are getting absolutely fleeced by the Yankees in the deal they’re talking. A low tier pitching prospect AND the Cubs eat most of the salary??? Yeah, I’ll take that.

Epstein gave us Freddie Sanchez who was hurt. Craig Hansen who was hurt. Brandon Moss who was hurt. And we caught Brandon Lyon who was hurt and returned him.

As well as Nate has hit this year, he’s done it while maintaining a below-league-average BABIP, so……who knows. Could be sustainable.

I think we could get him without giving Glasnow. I think Kingham or Heredia and Bell would do it.

If you don’t like him how about Kyle Blanks he is 26rs old with (8) Hr’s and is making 400,000 compared to Denorfia’s 2 mil.

Not an implication that he’s there today.

How often did we hear all sorts of good name for our Bucs only to get some average single A pitcher or hitter. If the White Sox are looking at Altoona they may be looking at Dickerson and Rojas. I am predicting Schierholtz since the cubs owe us for all the kisses the previous GM gave them. In fact maybe the Giants will give us something good for the same reason.
