    I hadn't even considered the qualifying offer that Davis had attached to him. Makes the deal even more egregious.

    Meanwhile the Cubs will be paying Brandon Morrow 2/21, and he's probably way better than Wade Davis is at this point.

    Yes, by far, if healthy. Big IF. One of the reasons i just moved him in BORED.

    2nd/4th and 1 million against the IFA budget.

    I'm pretty sure they lose their third highest selection in the draft and no dollars against the IFA budget. Colorado wasn't a luxury tax team last year. I could be wrong about this.

    Their 3rd highest selection is their 2nd round pick.

    yes, having looked it up I know it is their 2nd round pick. Off memory I wasn't sure if they were a competitive balance A or B team so I said 3rd highest pick. The point was they don't lose 2 picks and money against the IFA market.

    No doubt. Dodgers used and abused that arm in the playoffs.

    The guy is a No. 1 or 2 starter if healthy, let alone a high leverage reliever.

    re: potential Machado trade....."The Cubs purportedly offered a package of Addison Russell, Albert Almora and Mike Montgomery but were rebuffed."

    That seems like a pretty good offer for an expiring contract.

    Nah. A stretched out Morrow is a no. 1 or 2 starter on many teams. He'd be back on the DL by mid season or earlier though.

    It wouldn't matter. As soon as they made the trade, their doctors would find some phantom injury somewhere and cancel it anyway.
