    Kimbrel is tied to a draft pick until the draft in June. Same w/ Kuechel.

    Does Theo have any connection to Kimbrel?

    I can’t think of any obvious ones.

    I know the front office thinks we get Morrow back at some point it would be criminal not to make every effort to sign him in June once the pick compensation is past

    With that said I’m sure there are a ton of teams who are going to be contending who will feel the same way.

    I’m hoping this ownership finds some money. Cock suckers

    Also Addy can get fucked. Hopefully he’s traded at some point this season for something of value

    Another idiotic comment by Russell today in the sun times.

    Theo is dumb for thinking this would ever work out. Addison is dumb as a rock and on top of that he's surrounded himself with idiots who give him bad advice.

    Fucker is talking about "vibes" in an interview where he's being asked about the boo's he received for abusing his ex wife.

    At this point let him be productive and hopefully we ship him off at the deadline.

    Even in his best year, 2016, he only slashed .250/.321/.417 and he hit 21 hr then.

    His power disappeared last year and he's not going to play enough to significantly raise his value. He's damaged goods from a PR perspective anyway.

    At this point, it's unrealistic to expect a return for him greater than a low-floor, high-ceiling guy who barely cracks his farm system's top 25.

    Wish.we'd just say see ya, bitch

    His value right now is in his defense. The hope is in his limited ABs he shows improvement that he may live up to his lofty prospect ranking. I'm looking at it best case scenario. Unlikely to happen. I'm not sure Theo at this point haven taken most of the backlash will sell low on Addy. He may be part of this roster longer than I want

    Speaking of prospects. Alzolay was throwing mid 90s today.

    Looked rusty but his stuff flashed.

    Tommy La Stella just crushing it this year is both frustrating and slightly perplexing. Guy can hit as we all knew but the power is surprising. Turned those doubles into dingers.

    I bring this up because MLB Tonight just did a big segment on him. Trofie reported this information first.

    When he got up last night you could just feel it change in the ballpark. Absolutely wild.

    Also Harper trolling the RF bleachers was pretty funny but good lord did they give him massive amounts of shit all night.

    I read somewhere that they changed his batting stance and that has made a huge difference. Shows just how bad Chili was and how much he fucked up all these guys in a short period of time.

    Is Chili working somewhere else? Would be interesting to see how a different team does with him as coach. He seems to be the main reason for all the hitting issues last year.

    Don’t forget he destroyed the power of the Red Sox right before the Cubs. Went from top teams in power production to the bottom.

    It sort of was, they showed him making a catch for the third out and throwing the ball into the fright field stands but you couldn’t see where it ended up, but judging by what I saw I knew he threw it out, Espn crew made some comment about and Bryce gives a fan a souvenir.

    That espn crew is so bad. I love Tim as 3rd mic, but Ravich and Eduardo are rough. Especially Eduardo.

    I feel like Ravich is on his cell phone doing other shit the majority of the time when broadcasting. He's sloppy. I feel like ESPN is close to a good crew with the people the employ they just haven't found the correct combo.

    The arms in our farm system are showing life. It’s very exciting.

    On the flip side Theo said help to the pen would more likely come from a Trade vs free agency.

    My guess is Kimbrel knows where he’s going just waiting on the draft.

    I’ve seen us linked with former Astros and now blue jays closer as a trade target.

    Bullpen back to sucking ass...

    On the bright side the Cubs took a flyer on former #2 pick Danny Hultzen. His latest extended spring outing had him sitting between 94-96 with as SL at 84-87

    He was throwing 89-92 last year.

    11 blown saves on the season.

    Imagine if you had a closer. Our one game lead could be 6.

    If we miss out on the playoffs we can thank Theo and ownership for just an awful job and throwing away a season where starting pitching has been amazing and the hitting is best in the NL

    I also worry for Steve being over worked. Already pitched in 23 games. Maddon hinted postgame he’s tired and pitched at 3/4 strength yesterday

    Disagree. Have no problem with being frugal in offseason 2019 if it means keeping more of our upcoming free agents in 2020. Now if we reach the trade deadline and the bullpen is an issue, you spare no expense
