Personally, I want to see a full blown rebuild but of course, I wanted that last year, too.

The sooner it happens, the sooner the Royals will be back in contention.
You wanted it in 2015.

I don't think the money is that crazy, Darvish has pitched well. The biggest worry I'd have is his health. Last year was really his first fully healthy season in 4 years.

Valid concern, but they couldnt just sit back and let the Brewers continue to improve while they made minor tweaks to their roster. They needed an ace, assuming Lester continues his downward spiral from last year, and they got the best one available at below market value.

They also dont have to surrender a pick for Darvish and will get one back when Arrieta signs.

He made 31 starts, so he couldn't have had more than one 10-day DL stint.

His injury timing in 2014 wiped out 2015 and part of 2016, but that TJ is the only significant injury in his career.

It's a deal that could be rough on the back end, but the money and terms are much friendlier than I think many expected.

Darvish
Lester
Quintana
Hendricks
Chatwood/Montgomery/Butler...

All of a sudden, the Cubs rotation depth is excellent, and they're geared up for the next 3 years.

Also: if Darvish only got 21/year... hard to see Hosmer actually getting that much a year on a long term deal.

Pitchers and Catchers report today. I'm hoping for three first round draft picks to make the major league roster out of spring training; Hunter Dozier, Bubba Starling, and Kyle Zimmer. Let the rebuild begin.

That is a tall order... I imagine we'll see them at some point this season. I'd think Zim has the best shot of breaking camp as our bull pen is a mess.

I don't see that happening. MAYBE hunter Dozier makes the roster.

Problem is, if they all make the roster, it likely means the roster sucks.

And, if Zimmer makes it, odds are he'll be off it, and onto the DL, by the end of April.

And WTF is Hosmer doing at this point? Waking up every day hoping the Royals or Padres caved and are willing to give him 8 or 9 years?
Maybe he'll get lucky and some All-Star first baseman on a contender will tear an ACL the first week of spring training and the team will be desperate for a replacement.

I think he's waiting for a third team to swoop in and top the Padres and Royals.

One thing about Kizer: I think Notre Dame was so much of a shitshow, overrated program that he could have some untapped potential in a more stable environment. I like his talent the most out of all these guys.
