I have a new nickname for the Cubs:

The Fading Empire.

If I were the Cubs, I would not trade Bryant at this time, no matter the outcome of the arbitration.

His trade value, even as a one year rental, will be much higher in July as long as he remains healthy.

I wonder if he Cub see Bryant as someone who will contineu to drop in his batting. His average and health have steadily declined and if he only bats 260 his value will definitely go down

All of his offensive metrics, including his batting average, increased from 2018 to 2019.

So at day 1 on the Cubs convention Ricketts was booed loudly during his opening remarks when he started talking about Marquee and Bryant’s wife is on Twitter yelling at people who are accusing Bryant of faking having the flu so he wouldn’t have to talk to anyone.

I listened to 670 the score for a few minutes on my way to the gym. During that time, Bruce Levine was busy making excuses for the Cubs FO not trying harder to extend some of their stars now. Then he said it's not like they don't spend money and referenced the fact the team makes contributions to charity. You know, like every single other team in baseball does.

I'm not on the anti-Cubs bandwagon but good god Levine is such a useful idiot for that front office.

I guess this goes here rather than in the Bryant Loses His Arbitration thread. Man, some Cubs fans really want this guy gone. Whatever. But it's mysterious to me, given his numbers, his history and his overall demeanor, how they can turn on him like this with vicious comments. He's said nothing I've seen criticizing the club, has taken the position that the arb was just business with both sides doing what they had to do etc. If you think you can get a decent return for him, trade away. But acting like he's some kind of cancer? Weird.

Not surprising, considering that they're the most insufferable fan base in all of sports (no small feat, given the existence of Red Sox fans).

Trolling my Cubs fans buddies over this. Just offered Fulmer and a bag of used baseballs with Palka thrown in free...

So will the Chicago media start proposing “Bryant to the White Sox” trades the way they proposed “Sale to the Cubs” trades a few years ago?

No.

The good players only go to the Cubs. You have it backwards.

Earlier this offseason I posted about how the Sox have the potential to own both the division and the city for the next five years. Maybe "own" was too strong of a word, because it's true that the Cubs fanbase is larger and will likely stay that way for the foreseeable future. But there are a lot of fair weather fans in that group that will jump off the bandwagon if their team continues to nosedive.
