There is no doubt the Ricketts Family is doing Cubs fans no favors in attracting the level of talent needed to compete for the National League Central crown, but Boras is crazy to say that Cubs fans “don’t come to see seats, grass, cement.” Actually, he’s technically right because what Cubs fans come to see is ivy, an iconic scoreboard, and the ghosts of their ancestors who sat in the same seats all the way back to 1914 (assuming they were fans of the Federal League team that used Wrigley Field for the two seasons it operated) do, is get hammered.
You’re (the Cubs) developing the infrastructure, but fans don’t come to see seats, grass, cement.
You can rebuild the farm system and try to win at the MLB level too.
Cano is a fine player, but he's a 2B and 2B over the age of 30 just aren't good bets... if he's really looking for 2 to 300 million, I just can't see paying him that.
I think Cano would transition nicely to 3B if a team wants to be aggressive with their usage of him. He clearly has the arm for it - heck, his arm is almost wasted at 2B.
It really is one step shy of G.O.B. pretending to be a chicken.
