The Cubs have had 2 guaranteed contracts this offseason 1. Jeremy Jeffress 2. Steven Souza Jr We lost Strop, Cishek, Zobrist, Castellanos and more... We are in trouble this year.
I'm as guilty of it as anyone: being frustrated about offseason doesn't mean you cannot also evaluate Cubs' roster as it exists & try to best project for 2020. To my eye, this Cubs team has a chance to compete. Too much individual talent. But scary depth & huge pitching risks.
Respectfully disagree about competing. They won 84 games last year and lost: 1) 2 key pieces of bullpen (Cishek & Kintzler) 2) best hitter in the 2nd half (Casty) The starting pitching is another year older and Kris Bryant is likely on the move. I see a 75-76 win team. #Cubs
Bullpen: Colome 2.80 ERA 1.066 WHIP Bummer 2.13 ERA .99 WHIP Cordero 2.75 ERA .972 WHIP Marshall 2.49 ERA 1.303 WHIP Cishek 2.95 ERA 1.203 WHIP Then add multiple other guys who were good in 2018 but not 2019: Kelvin Herrera Jace Fry And... Former 1st round pick: Zack Burdi
