Chicago Cubs: Now, this could be interesting…

Sign George Springer. Sign Kyle Schwarber. Get pitchers healthy and win a ton of games. Sounds like a blueprint for possible success next season for the New York Metropolitans.

With a new owner who definitely is not cash-strapped when everyone else seems to be, watch out for some major moves coming out Flushing. Not that they’ll need to break the bank for the lefty slugger, Schwarber, but if there is a DH in the National League, this is as sensible a fit as any. A .367/.444/.700 career slash line at Citi Field doesn’t hurt that sense either.

Schwarber has already shown the Mets faithful he can mash, but a change to Queens would be a whole different story. Schwarber could play left field if it’s open, he could DH if that happens in the NL, and everyone already knows he can handle the bright lights of the Big Apple and the postseason. If the Mets are willing and able, several offseason signings and a trip to the postseason isn’t out of the question for New York.

I could also see the Padres, Nationals, Dodgers, or several AL contenders vie for his services, but time will only tell where one of the most lovable Cubs ends up.

dark. Next. Cubs can't trade Hendricks

Granted, there are many possible suitors and options for Schwarber this offseason; I just hope it won’t come back to bite the Cubs this year or beyond. This guy’s contributions on and off the field and his part in breaking the curse in 2016 will never be forgotten – nor should it.
