So we're competing against the two teams spending like drunken sailors this offseason.  This should go great.

Maybe the takeaway here is how absurd the idea that signing Swanson should take the Cubs out of signing anybody else they want is?  Cohen is one thing but if the Padres can do it, for cripes sake... 

The time has come for the Cubs to draw a line and make a statement.  You have to make a splash signing this time - identify the guy, whoever it is - Correa, Swanson, even Senga - and say "we're not losing him, he's ours."  That's the first step, not the last.

Kodai Senga says that he will announce his decision tomorrow on a popular Japanese show. He also says that the three finalists are #Mets , #Cubs , and #Padres.

You must have access to information that most of us don't have.  Can you tell us how much profit the Cubs have made in the past year?  Two years?  Three years?  A link would be nice.

You can never start the pursuit too early.

As I understand it, the report was Yanks working on “something big” [not including Rodon] and Olney (and others) taking a guess it might be Correa.

That’s not the same as a report pinpointing a serious negotiation with Correa. It’s a guess based on less specific information.

Buster is a good reporter, so likely there’s something there. Maybe Correa, maybe a trade, maybe something else.

Not the typical kind of report.

I don't have any problem with the Cubs taking Swanson if it means they really pursue Ohtani or Soto next year.

Soto is two years away from free agency.
