Review this three-team dynasty trade

A trade occurred in one of my longstanding dynasty leagues that I thought was pretty interesting, and as I couldn't really assess if there was a clear winner, I was interested in thoughts. Sixteen...


Cubs War Room

Use this space to discuss the individual picks as they come up. An updated big board below the jump. A couple brief notes first: -just from this morning's tweets alone, it seems like most analysts...


Cubs MOD #3

Draft day approaches. This MOD is pretty simple, as I'll stick with my original plan (despite previewing it in the comments for #2): a "big board" with comments from last time incorporated is up...


MOD Cubs #2

Thanks for all your input on the first diary post. What I’ve got below is an attempt to distill a “big board” for 1.6 based on the comments, and then a few guys to look at in the supplemental...


MOD Cubs #1

The Cubs will have five picks in this mock: 1.6, 1.43 (for Aramis), 1.53 (for Pena), 2.67, and 3.101. A lot of opportunities to fill some holes in the system. I would love to hear people's...


Opinions on a deep dynasty league trade

Wanted to know what people thought about a trade I just made. 24 teams, 225 man rosters (40 majors/185 minors), $115m salary cap, standard scoring. Minor leaguers, once they are called up, are...

Olin Kreutz Leaves Saints; Cites 'Lack of Passion'


@miketripletttp Mike Triplett #Saints center Olin Kreutz is leaving team because he no longer feels passion and doesn't want to just collect paycheck, according to agent. Interesting development there. Perhaps he would have been more invested as a Bear...or the Bears dodged a bullet.


Awesome Billy Rowell interview

Just had to post this.  What an utter meltdown (though I give him credit for acknowledging his lack of production.) h...


Confirmed: Drew Cumberland retiring--a sad story Vertigo, which was the problem a SD paper reported a few weeks ago, is...

OT: Jim Caple article on Sean Burroughs


sad story. I hope he can keep things going in the right direction.

Potential Bears draftee Marcus Cannon diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma


There was discussion a few weeks ago that he had testicular cancer, but he denied any illness, probably because they were in the process of this diagnosis. Probably not a 1st round option at this point, unfortunately. Hope his recovery is smooth.


Cahill or Romero?

who would you rather have in a standard dynasty league w/o salaries?  (I'm trading from position player depth to acquire one of these guys, but I'm having a tough time deciding which one I prefer.)...

Former Cub Update: Hak-Ju Lee Out With...Chicken Pox


no, really. @SPTimesRays Marc Topkin #Rays SS prospect Hak-Ju Lee expected to miss first 10-14 days of Class A Stone Crabs season due to chicken pox.

Kyler Burke Becoming a Pitcher?


interesting...combo of strong arm, not much hitting success last year, and a solid crop of OF prospects equals a position change.

Interesting Szczur tidbit from BA


get that 40-man roster spot ready next winter... "Szczur officially signed his new contract on March 18. After consulting the commissioner's office, the Cubs determined that the cleanest way to alter Szczur's bonus amount was to first release and then re-sign him to a new minor league deal. By signing him to a second contract, however, the Cubs triggered a provision that will make Szczur eligible for December's major league Rule 5 draft—but only if he's not a member of Chicago's 40-man roster."

Maurice Jones-Drew: still a d-bag


he tries backing off from his previous backing off from his comments. Is he still the guy who stopped playing during the most important two games of his team's season, yet still feels it's okay to comment on Jay? You betcha..

Cubs spending dinero in Cuba


1.7m total between two guys. I'd venture to say this is a good sign for this year's draft budget as well...


Dynasty trades

Couple dynasty trade proposals came into my inbox, wonder what you guys think. Deal 1: 5x5 h2h, no salaries, 16 teams, deep major league rosters.  My team finished last in almost every offensive...

BA Ranks Cubs Top 10 Prospects

Brandon Guyer, of Plus a rather positive quote from an anonymous scout: "One pro scout who covered the Cubs opined that they had more future big leaguers than any other organization."

Marvez article on Bears D from Foxsports


some nice quotes in there, and gives a good overall picture of a cohesive unit.


Yea/Nay: Fantasy Football Trade

Standard scoring, 12-team league.  I'm shallow at RB, relatively deep at WR.  I've been offered Ryan Mathews and Ochocinco for Greg Jennings and Jonathan Stewart.  Ochocinco hasn't been too great...


Pick 6 (or fewer) keepers

  I won the league this year, so I will be picking last.  League specs: 12-teams, rotisserie 5x5 scoring, with positions of C-1b-2b-ss-3b-2b/ss-1b/3b-lf-cf-rf-of-util and ten open pitching slots...

Former Cub News: Bad Luck for Kevin Hart


torn labrum in his pitching shoulder. Here's hoping he can recover and pitch again.


Some available veterans

There are a lot of veterans who have just been or are about to be released (or could be available in trade, based on how their teams drafted) who could help the Bears fill some holes or enhance...
