Why didn't we sign Kimbrel when we needed a closer? Now we gonna try and trade for one? Good lord. 

At this point, we will be lucky to advance to 2nd round.

We tried, Kimbrel wanted a long term contract. Cubs only one that offered that.

You give it to him and potentially trade him again if needed.

SF reportedly leaning towards keeping their guys. Situation fluid.

Man **** the Giants, those turds basically held the deadline hostage because they foolishly think they'll actually make the playoffs.

How would that be possible? Nobody would give him a long contact but they would give up something to trade for him and take on an already existing long contract? Plus have you seen his ERA?

If you have to trade him you end up eating the money anyway. You cant just dump the salary, teams aren't that stupid.

If he had 1 year left on contract, some team could pull a trigger for him in trade.

He should have took the shorter deal with us and came home. I feel like things would be a little different.
