Possibly the most letters used in a two-person trade?
Theo does know that you can improve the major league team while waiting for the prospects?
This offseason has been so dull for the Cubs that I've been snoozing and have forgotten most of 2013 ... our starting OF at the moment is ... Ruggiano/Lake/Schierholtz? Have I forgotten an exciting signing like Jason Kubel or Sam Fuld or something?
Finally, I would hope that Thed realize that the chances of Rusin OR Arrieta -- much less both -- being legitimate parts of the rotation all year are pretty slim. Especially if Samardzija gets dealt - the Cubs could use another SP, nothing exciting - something of the reclamation variety would be fine (what's up with Scott Baker? Would he give up a discount since he basically got paid 5 million dollars to rehab?)
What's the fewest? 15 for Bill Lee for Stan Papi?
crap ... we've become the mets
Still, I'd hate to think that Ryan Sweeney, starting OF was in any way the plan... I mean, I'd rather shift Lake to CF and see if I could pick up something on the cheap. I'll grant we didn't have enough to be in on, say, Dexter Fowler.... but even a Travis Snider, Scott Van Slyke, or JD Martinez -- just to toss out 3 OF that could probably be had for virtually nothing -- would be more exciting. Or hell, is Franklin Guitierrez signed anywhere yet? I bet he'd sign for a major league deal -- or at least no more than a few million.
