If I had to write in a starting 8 today on what carries over.
Pen is up in the air but I can see 2 adds.
I do not expect a major signing right now. 2022 will be more flips and players with team control.
Late 22 is where we see the next wave start.
Of the above listed wait and see right now. Some of these guys are solid players. Not all star quality by no means but sound players. Add depth to the staff this is a 85 win team.
Meh, IDK. The above trash is a 60-win roster IMO.
I mean I dont see how any team can promist that, but I do know there is no way the Cubs can go into 2022 with a Pirates payroll. The league and the players association would go absolutely ape shit on them.There is no way the Cubs got the Field of Dreams game without assurances from Hoyer to the MLB that they were gonna spend this off season to at least be in contention. That is a massive prime time game.
I don't think they are looking at it that way. I mean it surely helped that both the Sox and Yankees are in the race but I'm thinking it was more of how it matched up with the movie characters. Shoeless Joe from the Black Sox.....Costner's Dad wearing a Yankee uniform. I mean the game will get great ratings no matter who is playing. The Iowa Cubs is the closest thing to a pro team in the whole state. As they use up things that relate to the game/movie, they will probably go in the direction you are suggesting or they might just stop playing the game completely. I'm sure it will lose it's steam at some point.A lot, but I am referring to tv ratings. This years game was the most watched regular season game since 2005. MLB won't want two bad teams playing that game.
Almost every post you make is full of conjecture
Cubs will have a shot if Banks, Williams, Santo, and Jenkins come out of the Corn....I mean I dont see how any team can promist that, but I do know there is no way the Cubs can go into 2022 with a Pirates payroll. The league and the players association would go absolutely ape shit on them.
