Corey Seager, Marcus Semien and Jon Gray to the Rangers. Max Scherzer, Starling Marte, Mark Canha and Eduardo Escobar to the Mets. Cy Young winner Robby Ray to the Mariners. Noah Syndergaard to the Angels.
Tampa Bay, Detroit and Toronto are spending $$$.
The Cubs snatched that guy who got booted out of Cincinnati.
Okay, I'm being a jerk, kinda.
The Wade Miley pickup was good, but I'll feel better when more happens.
And that'll probably happen after this top tier wave gets signed, because the Cubs aren't gonna surprise us with a big name.
That's not shocking, right?
I mean... we know how we got here.
And that was pretty painful, but now that we're all down here lookin' up, we should probably get used to the view.
At least til a handful of the kid prospects can start making the jump to the Bigs.
For now, it won't be as bad as 2012 or 2013 - we won't have anybody as bad as, say, Blake DeWitt.
But I expect to feel like I'm watching some James Russells or Luis Valbueanas, maybe a Nate Schierholtz.
I prefer to be down there with my thoughts and maybe something unexpectedly good will happen rather than the other way around.
A couple years from now, however, I'll reverse that.
Ummm.. what else?
I'm not surprised Matt Nagy's still here, but omg I totally took off my Bears hat at the airport during Thanksgiving travel.
When your head coach has to say, "Hey all these rumors about me getting fired are wrong"?
I continue to hope that he and Ryan Pace get the ax at the end of the season.
And if that happens, hopefully they have someone waiting in the wings.
Anyway, here's other stuff I've been working on...
Commissioned pet paintings for gifts!
Watching "The Great" and the Bulls.
And lastly... all these "TIME IS RUNNING OUT" Emails.
I realized they were all about the various sales, so... I guess it's okay.
