    The pilot sucked. I assume it becomes more coherent going forward based on what I've heard but I'm in no rush to see if that's the case.

    Finished watching it. First episode was a mess but it picked up significantly after that.

    Honestly who the **** reads message boards not called reddit anymore? We're basically the 2020s equivalent for a HAM radio club

    Also kind of annoying when some members try to accuse others for why there aren't as many people on here anymore for one reason or another. ABF started bleeding users when the mods tried to crack down on us in ~2010 and members like falcon bob tried to make an alternate forum and didn't come back.

    There are also just better alternatives for sports talk these days, since it's not like TATF and other subforums are much better than Facebook comments, and it's also not like people go to sports team forums to talk about politics and TV shows unless they're weirdos. :ninja:

    What’s the package - 2arms/1bat - that you would give up that might be acceptable to Cubs?

    Who would the bat be?  Riley, Pache’ or Waters?  Which one?

    Who would the arms be?

    "Two arms and one bat" is sort of vague because I don't know what kind of bat they're targeting. A cheap replacement for Bryant? Then Riley. Someone to be their CF of the future? Then Waters. I would take Pache off the table though. He (and Anderson) would only be worth packaging in a deal for MVP caliber, dirt cheap players like Matt Chapman imo.

    My assumption is they'd prefer Waters, just because teams always seem to think far less of prospects the moment they reach they play in the Majors which would hurt Riley's value. So I'd let them pick between Wright, Wilson, Weigel, and Muller and then one of the low-A prospects. If they want a Major League arm instead (again, vague) then throw in Newcomb instead of one of the prominent pitching prospects.

    This is, of course, assuming Bryant has two years of control left.

    Seems a lot of smoke around Braves and Kris Bryant.  Guessing that picks up if JD goes by the wayside.

    Personally not a fan of giving a great package of prospects for only two years of Bryant- who wouldn’t sign extension with Cubs.

    The farm system has a pitcher log jam and the Cubs are primarily looking for pitching prospects. That's the kind of trade we can absorb pretty easily.
