The Chicago Cubs had an active offseason, however, it did not begin in earnest until the calendar flipped to 2024.

The Cubs were linked to several high-profile players at the start of the offseason. Whether it was potential trades for Juan Soto or Tyler Glasnow and a potential free-agent pursuit of Shohei Ohtani, there was an expectation that the Cubs were going to be aggressive as they looked to enter the 2024 season as the clear favorites to win the National League Central division.

After all, that was minimally what could be expected after the team shelled out $40MM for Craig Counsell.

While the Cubs did not have the blockbuster move that many were anticipating, the team was successful with the moves that they made.

The additions of Michael Busch, Shota Imanaga, and Hector Neris were complementary moves to the Cubs bringing back Cody Bellinger.

Still, many fans were left with a taste for more.

As the first week of the regular season is now underway, there are some moves that the Cubs should have made after all.

3 offseason moves the Cubs should have done -- Sign Rhys Hoskins.

The upset of the offseason may be that Hoskins is not the starting first baseman of the Cubs. There was an overwhelming expectation that Hoskins was going to be the primary offensive addition to the Cubs' lineup for the 2024 season.

Hoskins is now with the Milwaukee Brewers and is off to an excellent start to the season with a 143 wRC+ through his first 17 plate appearances. Michael Busch's advanced numbers suggest a breakout is in order this season but there is no suggestion needed for Hoskin's start.
