Chicago Cubs: Kris Bryant to the Phillies for what?

Many fans have their predispositions on the value of Bryant and what teams are willing to offer the Cubs for the former Rookie of the Year and NL MVP. Many organizations such as the Atlanta Braves, Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers have circled into the loop as possible landing spots for Bryant.

The Philadelphia Phillies are also a team jumping into the fray. While there is a camp which probably believes the Phillies offer upside in a deal, the most recent offer which just came hot off the press is seemingly unrealistic.

In this specific offer, the Cubs would send Bryant to the City of Brotherly Love in exchange for the Phillies’ top overall prospect third baseman Alec Bohm, starting pitcher Zach Eflin, shortstop Jean Segura, and catching prospect Rafael Marchan.

It also suggests the stipulation the Phillies will pay down part of Segura’s current $70 million contract. Let’s jump into the brass tacks of the deal and why it is subpar at best.
