Re: Trade with the Cubs
I have no problem with Sappelt, Heisey playing LF but I just thought that one of them, if not both would be moved this offseason for SP. And I also think there are number of factors that won't make us overpay:
1. final year of contract, so anything is better than draft picks when you don't plan on contending
2. Inside the division will only affect Garza, Marmol, Soto and possibly Marshall because they could be locked up long term and are that good
3. 2 Wild Cards
4. Again, I think being in contention would be a happily accepted biproduct of clearing dead weight for younger prospects but they aren't focused on it
5. They are trying to rid themselves of Hendry's bad contracts so they can make their own
Ok that last one was a little jab at the Crawford and Lackey signings!
