    Show me the difference between 08 09 and 10 rosters. Please. Cuz I highly doubt we started to suck just cuz Ricketts showed up and owned the team. And I'm still waiting for your GM offseason mode post. I've asked multiple times what you would do considering your the major homer saying this is your opinion. I told you to back up what your saying by giving me the playoff contending team you said throwing money at would work, and yet I'm still waiting for it
    He wanted us to:
    LF: Ryan Braun (trade Koyie Hill and prospects)
    CF: Jacoby Ellsbury (trade Theo Epstein)
    RF: Matt Kemp (trade Darwin Barney)
    3B: Aramis Ramirez ($100 Million for 2 years to convince him to stay)
    SS: Jose Reyes (trade that POS Castro)
    2B: Troy Tulowitzki (trade Soto)
    1B: Albert Pujols ($500 Million for 2 years) and Prince Fielder on bench ($400 Million for 2 years)
    C: Yadier Molina (trade Clevenger)
    SP: Roy Halladay (buy his contract), Tim Lincecum (buy his contract), C.C. Sabathia (buy his contract), Cliff Lee (buy his contract), Mark Buerhle ($300 Million for 2 years)

    We're a BIG MARKET team, so we should SPEND UNTIL RICKETTS DEFAULTS ON HIS DEBT!!!!

    This just my opinion. I agree that small and medium market have to build team like that. I get that 100%. Just being a Cub fan in the 3rd largetst market and should be the top payroll in NL, i think team should be competitive every single year. I think its tough to ask Fans who have been waiting 103 years to be more patient while rebuilding when there 60% chance of it failing. Alot of older Cub fans dont have 3 + years to watch this team rebuild. I understand that 99% of us here are young. What about our fathers, grandparents that have been following Cubs for 30+ years.
    Cool story bro. Spending our asses off because some people are old and won't see us win if we do it the right way is asinine. You don't base how you run your business on some old people needing to be able to see it, so you build another expensive trainwreck and hope it works. That's really just an incredulously stupid argument.

    Ricketts should give Soler $70 Million dollar 1-year major league deal so d3a can shut up about payroll.

    I never 1 time said to spend money just because. Soler dont help the team now. He a future investment. Im saying spend money on proven MLB talent that makes you competitive WHILE building up the farm. Its going to take 3-5 yrs to build up the farm. Does anyone here understand that? With new cap on AM DRAFT and IFA, its going to take even longer to build the farm. So what i am saying is while they are building the farm why not spend on MLB talent on 1-5 yr deals to help MLB team be compeitive.

    Today's MLBTR update:

    Boston will pursue 19-year-old Cuban outfielder Jorge Soler, reports Speier. Soler is still waiting to be declared a free agent by MLB, but Speier says most in the industry (including the Red Sox) expect him to sign with the Cubs.

    Whose Twitter?

    I wouldn't be surprised either way. I just hope they don't have to spend TOO much

    I'm hoping it's less than the $27MM rumored. Seems a bit much for a prospect. But since they have the money to burn...
