  1. cubs send 1B alexander Marquez AAA orioles send 1B anthony rizzo mlb 100% retained welcome home rizzo!
  2. Cubs send: RP Julio Teheran (MLB) -- 100% retained by Cubs Rangers send: RP Simon Castro (MLB) SP Kelly Koch (A+) RP Sam Bordner (A+) The reliever trade train continues. We are excited to cash in some of those chips for a some minor league help.
  3. Cubs send: RP Al Alburquerque Mariners send: SS Gonzalo Garza We have been acquiring sooo many minor league outfielders lately, and many of our best players are in the outfield, so it's time to reinforce the infield depth a little bit. Al Al is a veteran depth price to pay for that. Thanks Kaiser, SEA to confirm.
  4. Cubs send: RP Steve Graham (AAA) Yankees send: RF Raul Dominguez (A+) Graham has been a longtime favorite of ours, but it's time to move on. In exchange, we acquire a patient hitter who is still years from the Rule 5 draft. The rebuild continues. Thanks Rhett, NYY to confirm.
  5. Cubs send: RP Casey Mulligan (MLB) RF Juan Costello (AA) Dodgers send: SP Julio Urias (AAA) Casey Mulligan is a good player, but as the old saying goes, a 30+ year old RP won't get the 2020 Chicago Cubs any closer to the playoffs. We package him with Juan Costello, an outfield prospect who we really like but don't quite love for a young starting pitching prospect in Urias. Thank you to Sam for getting the Cubs involved in this year's Trade Deadline. LAD to confirm.
  6. We continue to fund the Rockies’ championship efforts, this time in exchange for an interesting shortstop still a few years from Rule V exposure. Thanks, Cubs confirm.
  7. We are interested to try and see what Walker does as a relief pitcher, something no other organization has tried or any extended period of time (possibly for good reason, but we will try and see for ourselves). Trienen is a project, Cox is far away and we wanted to add an upgrade to our MLB bullpen for the near-term. Thanks Kaiser, Cubs confirm.
  8. Cubs send: $50,000 in cash considerations White Sox send: RP Derek Law (AA) 1B Kenkichi Tanaka (MLB) Jose Felix has nearly all of our catching duties covered, but we are starting to realize maybe Joe Cook is not the answer to the backup role. Maybe Tanaka isn't either but we will give it a shot. Thanks Hodges; White Sox to confirm.
  9. Cubs send: OF Patrick Payne (MLB) -- 100% of salary retained by Cubs in 2020 $631,467 Rockies send: RP Shawn Morimando (AAA) RP Al Alburquerque (AA) The Cubs are looking to shake things up a bit. We claimed Payne off waivers before the 2018 season and he has not quite been able to stick in three major league campaigns, accumulating just 0.8 WAR. We think Al-Al might have a shot in our bullpen this year. We'll see. Thanks for the deal Eddie, Rockies to confirm.
  10. Cubs accept! We turn some cash and a shitty catcher into an okay catcher. Thanks for the deal Eddie.
  11. Cubs accept. We were looking on the free agent market for some relief help, but our lack of budget room led us to the trade market. Some solid depth is coming back to the Cubs in this deal for a second baseman who is a long shot. Thanks Mitch.
  12. Got my password! This is copy/pasted purely for history's sake... Cubs agree to this deal, we just are unable to reset our password right now for some reason. This can wait until I figure out the reset but if @matteise wants to copy/paste this there for me, feel free. The Cubs think they may be decent this year, and are looking for a final outfield piece to join the puzzle of Candon Myles (stud) and Ed Harris (stud-plus). Kevin Hunter, our recent Rule 5 acquisition, might be that guy. Gose plays even better defense and might be that guy too, who knows? Erik Hooper is the worst prospect that Mitch was interested in, so we send him along. "Meat" has been marinating in the low minors for too long and we don't believe he'll be able to make the next step, so we part with him easily. Cubs make their first trade since June 9th. Thanks Mitch for helping me get back in the game! Confirmed.
  13. Cubs send: SS CJ Abrams (R-Mesa) Twins send: SP Richard Mann (AA-Chattanooga) We need more pitching in the pipeline and Mann is a solid lefty doing fine at AA. Thanks Twins, Rocky to confirm.
  14. For the first time ever, we are willing to listen and discuss a potential deal for C Jose Felix. He recently requested a trade to a contender. We are not sure if we are going to grant his request yet as we still believe he is valuable to the rebuild, but we are kicking off a possible sweepstakes. Seeking a big, legitimate return to usher along the rebuild. Let me know if you are interested, I will add you to the negotiation list and we can exchange some names. Fun facts about Jose Felix: He's the best defensive catcher in the league. 80 grade at the C positive, 80 grade at catcher ability and 70 grade at catcher arm.Two-time Gold Glove winner.He's a captain with literally the best case scenario for all personality traits. That's high Leadership, Loyalty, Work Ethic, and Intelligence, with low Greed.He makes less than $1.5M per year and is locked up until either his 35th or 37th birthday, depending on the vesting options. He is literally designed to age into the perfect backup catcher role.Great contact bat who is a lock for somewhere in the range of a .285 to .315 batting average.Again, no guarantee he moves, but perhaps we can talk about it.
  15. Cubs send: SS Javier Baez (AAA) 100% salary retained Twins send: RP David Cortez (AA) C Tomas Anaya (AA) SP Walter Hoffman (A+) We still think Baez is a decent player and we were possibly too aggressive bringing him up from AA to MLB when he first re-joined Chicago. Our initial plan was to send him to AAA to figure some things out and bring him back up when he was raking, but we decided to give Yosuke Sasaki and Julian Garcia full-time at-bats and Rocky came together with a competitive offer. Good luck Javy. MIN to confirm.
