Chicago Cubs: What next?

So onto baseball. Rogers asked why they’ve ‘minor moves’ and why they can’t execute their bigger plans?

"This is obviously likely to be one of our less active offseasons. We’ve had some incredibly active ones. That said, the offseason is not over. For the Cubs, things probably got pushed back a little bit. We’re probably at a different place in the offseason, calendarwise, than we normally would have been. We’re not necessarily finished making moves going into spring training."

Translated? They’re not going do any. Look, would I like to see Kris Bryant traded? Not at all..unless it’s worth it. A four-for-one deal with a couple of top prospects. But all is said and done; I like to hold onto Bryant, Willson Contreras and more. Remember, these are the ‘core.’ Contreras, Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez. You got to hold on to them.
