    Maybe the Red Sox are good?

    We knew they were going to hit. JD Martinez, Rafael Devers, Xander Boegarts looks like a legit middle of the order. Frenchy Cordero, Christian Vasquez, and Alex Verdugo seem like solid offensive contributors and maybe Dalbec too. It's a deep lineup. I'm not sure if we have an answer at second...

    If we're buyers, who do we spend?

    For the purposes of this thread, lets assume we want to make a major upgrade. Who do we trade? What players would we need to trade to get a top talent in return, what players are you willing to trade, what players are you absolutely not willing to trade?   Obviously your ideal trade chip is...

    Did the 2014 strike zone change help GB pitchers?

    Wait, we can trade draft picks now?

    When did this happen?   According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the Cubs have "inquired about receiving a competitive-balance draft pick and the accompanying bonus-pool money" as part of a return package for right-hander Jeff Samardzija.
