I think the Cubs are going to go after one of the four shortstops, and have a reasonable chance (perhaps75%) of getting one of them.  I think they will also go after Senga or Rodon, and have a reasonable chance (perhaps 50%) chance of getting one of them.  If they do get both positions, I highly doubt that they will spend much money for a center fielder.  Perhaps Abreu, if they can get him for 10 - 12 million, but other than the usual middle of the pack relievers, that is going to be it for the winter as far as large investments are concerned.  At the trade deadline, when their needs are more firmly defined, they might try to plug another hole.

But under no circumstances do I expect to see them bring in so much talent this winter that they can enter the season as a top tier competitor for the World Series.

I hope they sign Contreras to a long term contract.
