I would think that part of Tony's Pale Hose deal is having a designated driver.

I was watching MLB network and they thought there would be no DH in the NL next year.

Wants a long term deal.

I say let Bryant and Schwarber walk(sad to say) and keep Almora(he is arbitration eligible as well).

Bote will be fine to man 3B/LF

 

Schwarber's a real interesting one because for the production vs what we are paying him he's worth keeping. Problem is and it does matter....the Cubs don't want to let him go and end up being a DH in the same town and winning down there. Or even worse being a DH for Reds, Cardinals or anyone else in the division once DH takes over in NL.

What if it is a shortened season again?

Obviously things will and can change but Cubs have been notifying season ticket holders about opening at Wrigley with no fans again. Things there are a little tight in terms of how the local leaders view fans at games,etc....

Of course most leaders probably can only look at the next 30 days in this world. No need to be planning for something 6 months out.

"Among the infielders the Nationals are considering this offseason is Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant, reports MLB.com's Jon Morosi. Bryant, 29, is coming off a poor 2020 season and there has been speculation Chicago could non-tender him next month rather than pay him a projected $19 million or so salary in 2021. Despite his name value, the prospect cost to acquire Bryant in a trade could be relatively small given his projected salary and rough season. If tendered, Bryant will become a free agent next offseason."

So it's my understanding that if the Cubs do non-tender KB, he immediately becomes a FA. Then the Nats could probably get him on the cheap.

If I'm the Cubs, I resign him to the 1 year deal, then see how both he and the team are doing at the trade deadline...

Conversely, maybe the gNats don't want him on the open market?
