The Phillies have so many young arms coming up and Giles is such a luxury for a rebuilding team, so this trade made a ton of sense. I'm pleased. I like the Rule 5 kid Goeddel we plucked from Tampa as well. And neither Tirado nor Tocci were taken in the Rule 5, so this week really could not have gone much better.

With the signings of Zobrist and now Heyward, the 2016 Cubs have gotta be the best team in baseball on paper and they still have all their valuable trade chips.

I was so distracted by Springsteen tickets, I missed this until my sister called me hyped as fuck.

This should be fun.

I hope.

Yeah, ask the 2015 Nats about being the best team in baseball on paper.

The Nats had Jayson Werth and were expecting big contributions from an injury prone Zimmerman and Rendon. Kinda obvious what happened to that team. Cubs have the depth to fill the holes should anyone fall off a cliff.

Heyward was always going to pick the Cubs. Our culture is somewhere between toxic and nonexistent, we're perpetual underachievers and our manager played during the Lyndon Johnson administration. Papelbon would have Heyward in a headlock by the second week of spring training.

None of this is to say that the team itself is terrible, but I don't know what would attract a player here over an exciting young team like the Cubs unless the contract was spectacular.

Yeah and if the bullpen has some issues they can always trade for Papelbon.

He's damn good defensively. But 13 homers last year? Yikes.

$23 Mil a year for a career .268 hitter with a .784 OPS who averages 16 HR and 59 RBI a year. Crazy money, yet Nats and Cards apparently offered more.

He's a bit of a product of the overvaluing of defensive metrics, but the Cubs are flush with cash so it's not that big of a deal. Plus, hey, flags fly forever.

Reinstatement denied. Pete Rose's lifetime ban stays in place.

Johnny Cueto signs for 6 years/130 million with San Fran.
