4. Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs have been very quiet this winter–too quiet

An offseason with a ton of speculation followed up by a whole lot of nothing. For Cubs fans, this offseason has been disappointing, to say the least, but the team believes they already have all they need. The offseason started with a Drew Smyly trade to make room to re-sign Cole Hamels. An exciting move as Cole turned into a fan favorite in his short time in Chicago. The Cubs also signed utility man Daniel Descalso and reliever Brad Brach.

For the money, the Cubs had to spend, or lack thereof, they made smaller moves for great value. Descalso will bring in veteran leadership with an ability to move all over the field which Joe loves. Brach will bring the Cubs much-needed bullpen help, and he does have an All-Star appearance next to his name from 2016. The Cubs have said they would like to wait until towards the end of the offseason to see prices drop, so more may come, but for now they come in at fourth on our list.
