Here's more from Epstein on Marquis last night talking about maybe some regrets. Looking back things. I wish I'd gone differently. Clearly, I wish that we would have performed better down the stretch in the postseason the last the last three seasons. I thought it was a calling card for for our group. To really Play play well and dominate when our backs were against the wall. We did it in 15, 16 and 17 to a large extent, and then that hasn't been the case the last three years, So we have to own that, too. And I wish I had done a better job putting us in a position where we could have played our best baseball. In October. Always saying the right thing called Don't you think? Yeah, you know, that's that's the thing. You know, Theo, you put too much blame on himself, you know, for Your first not winning another World Series because at the end of the day, there's only one World Series championship trophy that attended out of the year. I mean, you can't win every single year, no matter how talented your team is. I mean, we You know, It's been a long time since we've seen you back to back World Series champions and that's that's just what it is. It's the nature of the beast. You can't win every single year. And when you do you go in the history book. A Z one of dynastic type team and do the Cubs have that kind of talent to put up some of those runs? I mean that I think they do, and I think that they did, but I just think that you know it's easier said than done so for you to be able to bring a World Series Championship Battalion 2016. I mean, that's That's commendable in and of itself and pay for what he's done to be able to shake that lovable loser moniker from the team. I think that's that's one of the biggest compliments ever. In addition, That World Series championship. So be okay. Come walk out of that press conference yesterday, head held high. I know that, you know, he put one of the most iconic franchises in in a position to succeed, and that's where the Cubs are right now. I think it was impressive that they got back to the NLCS in 2017.

And I think you know whether it's you know, next month or next year or, you know, five years from now, I think you're gonna look to make it make a move and make a move that benefits the Cubs.

"Snow superstars team and through their use of analytics in pitching in have free hitting three debris hitting coaches an individualized approach for each the giants. Offense turned into a pretty good unit in a very good unit in twenty twenty. And so you know. There's things to be learned as organizations evolve over time and one of the coaches on the giants who who is involved in that process a guy named johnny ecker and spent three years in the cardinals system. So there's definitely some innovative things going on in baseball. And i think the cardinals have to figure out a way to get better use of their complete roster and certainly platooning and you know using bridge pitchers and you'll be a little more creative could be a way to do that could be to do that. What was your reaction to seeing. Theo epstein step down in chicago with one year left on his deal. Well i suppose you're year left on his deal but if you look at his history. Maybe it's not that surprising. The first thing i thought was. Wow it doesn't send a very positive signal about what the twenty twenty one cubs look like and that's not a new slash. You'd have thought that the cubs are going to win them another ring and when everybody another ring he would've stayed around to see it you know he's gonna take some time off. Apparently i'm sure he's going to look for another situation like he's been the past where There's an owner with a lotta money that's willing to spend and maybe organization hasn't won in a while. I think on one hand. You can't argue theo. Epstein is a hall of famer already three titles three world series titles in two cities that had one in a long time. But if you look at the come situation right now it's not a good situation. I mean we know they've got the big contracts and they don't know what to do with them They've they've they've got trouble with pitching. They haven't developed pitching a long time. That farm system is among the worst in the majors because traded away all their guys. So you know. The cubs jed hoyer. Who's the you know the who's gonna stay around in manage. You know he's going to get a inherit a tough situation there but obviously it's a positive for the cardinals anytime cubs us cargo bit or or have a little bit of a disruption as its positive for the rest of the division. I gotta wonder if you wanted to make a quick fix or tried to unload deals like bryant. Baya's schwarzer in a normal year. You probably could. But i gotta wonder about the marketplace in the appetite for teams to take on those types of deals. There might be only just a you know handful of teams at want those type of contracts so it may be very very tough for the cubs to try to unload those kind of deals to have payroll relief. I really think it's gonna be in the bryce got one year left so not only. Are you going to risk a lot for a guy with a huge contract who hasn't performed up to expectations in a in a few years. But you're also going to get a guy who might just be a rental so you're not gonna wanna give up through your four prospects for a guy who could walk after whatever. The twenty twenty one season is going to be whether it's a hundred games one hundred sixty two games or whatever you know. So there's a lot of question marci right that make the trade market for these big contracts a tough situation and that applies to to you know the name brand guys like air nado inland gore. But also guys. The cardinals have cars martinez and carpenter and fowler..

Good morning and welcome in a lot going on in the sports world I thought was all bears yesterday and Whoa! Feel Epstein's regime is over nine years. I remember The day he got hired. It was finalized on a Friday night. In late October, 2011 and here we are nine years later, and it's gone. One name. Feel Madonna share like a few people that get one name. We had one of them, and it was my favorite team. Danny's favorite team and we were the Apple of everybody's I and all of a sudden It's gone, poof! Can't believe it. So Do you look at the Chicago Cubs organization and think Okay, It's over, and now they're gonna be back to being who they are or it's. His first lieutenant is now into this big chair. They can move on and keep this rolling before we turn the page and take a realistic look at what Chicago Cubs baseball looks like for 2021. We should just really embrace. What we saw, and Clark and Addison because you think about the names that were front facing for the Chicago Cubs. The names like Jim Hendry at Ed Lynch and Andy MacPhail and Stanton, Cook and Larry Himes and those in those guys that were front facing for the organization for a long time, and you think about the left steam coming in and as an American League pennant, the White Sox fan When I knew that Theo Epstein came from the Red Sox and the Cubs. I said, Oh, bleep. The mood is about to change because it is Theo Epstein, right? And because I saw this in real time as a White Sox fan support I wish my white socks. We have someone in the front office. And it was that aggressive. First of all, to be able to spend the money that he did, But spend it the right way. Some people miss the nuance of Theo Epstein. It's more than just saying, Okay, I'm going to give you a bunch of 200 million. Now I need you to spend it. It's who he spends it on the meticulous way that he was able to build the franchise from zero to a World Series championship. It's about relationships as well. None of this happens without Jon Lester. Some say No. This happens without Jake area to the point is, though, is that bit by bit, He was able to build something special. I knew the Cubs would win the World Series, and I said if the Cubs don't win the World Series with Theo Epstein is never gonna happen in my lifetime. Because that guy did something impossible with the Boston Red Sox. Red Sox fans have been concerned about the occurs and Bucky Dent and all that stuff in the past, right. Theo changed everything with the Red Sox. Now that Z one of the one percenters, and now the Cubs are one of the one percenters. We saw franchises you've documented many times in this show. Where this team was so cheap and so downtrodden, so mom and pop and now look at it. Now it is the Dodgers. It's the Red Sox and the Yankees and the Cubs. Are that conversation Thanks to feel thanks to feel, And so now he moves on to whatever He chooses to do. I know if Danny had if you drop Danny said, Germans mind into feel right now. He'd be like I got how much money in the bank you have gone. I'm on a beach. I'll send you a birthday card. See you later. Feel I think he's looking forward to the next thing that he chooses to do. Whether that is be a team president again or by a team is part of a group. Whatever it is he chooses to do was amazing. The number of people on social yesterday saying, Hey, can he run the Bears? And I'm gonna ask him that question. When he joins us at nine o'clock, Would you ever jump to another sport? But when I've discussed that with him before, he shrugged it off almost to the point where it's like. That's insulting to the people that work in that sport. To think you could take me a baseball guy because I'm a fan of football first example. Drop me in and I could figure he goes. I'd work hard at it. Put That's offensive to people that work all the time on football. That's that's one man's opinion. I don't necessarily share that opinion. If you are good with people. If you are double relationships. If you have outsider's view of saying that's not my sport, but I can spot talent or I could find the people that can find the talent right. I can build you a winner in any sport. Because he had that kind of magic. He hasn't tested himself, but I'd give him a try. So if you bought the Bears Like how did you hear the breaking news? Jonathan Hood owns the Bears. Fields said to you, you your phone ring and its field, Jonathan, I know, you know. Captain. I know each other very well. I would love to sit down with you. I want to run your football team. Would you absolutely consider it definitely talked to him and pick his brain. So you tell me what you could do with this football team that others cannot that have have been growing up in the sport played. The sport planted a high level high ranking executives in the sport. Tell us what you could do. Definitely would listen. Because, you know, he's got a thoughtful of you on everything he does. That's the whole That's the reason why he absolutely done If I owned the Bears before I would call the I would call state of Illinois and say, Let me get this. Let me get out of this mousetrap here. God have you the first thing like I'm moving out out of this nonsense? The spaceship that we got down here, right? I'm moving to Arlington Park. We're not going down and put in a stadium.

This is a Bloomberg business Flash. Everybody. I'm Brian Curtis live in the Bloomberg Interactive Brokers studio here in Hong Kong, looking at a rather uneventful session in the Asia Pacific in terms of market action today. Investors kind of weighing up the escalating covert case is up against the optimism that we've had over the past week or so. In the vaccine development. The M S E. Asia Pacific Index down and not 0.1% after 12 sessions of gains material stocks gaining in the region, but industrials and consumer discretionary Leading the declines, particularly we see some declines in the Nikkei and the topics off about 7/10 of 1%. The offshore yuan has weakened a little bit this morning. The C S. I 300 is up. 0.1%. The Hang Seng Index is flat. The cost. BP is up near February of 2000 and 18 highs and the taxes trading at new records since the inception of the index way back in 1967. A couple of notes to highlight here. The China Automobile Dealer Association says the barriers that restrict development of the auto distribution industry are expected to be removed. Within the year and I was says the declines of the Chinese Internet sector have been overdone. Stocks were down in response to the government's moves on any trust rules, and this note says that policy makers Really don't intend to curb the growth of technology firms because they're still driving innovation in the economy. Also Japanese exports, narrowing their decline for the fifth month in October. Shipment's edging down just 0.2% year on year while the last reading was down, 4.9% of the expectation was for dropping. 4.5% All the end one of 4 11, so plenty of strength in the end today yield on the 10 year now 84 basis points your update on markets. Let's get an update on news that Baxter in San Francisco it alright, Brian. Thank you. India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Bloomberg New Economy Forum says after the pandemic job one and urban cities will be to build Sustainable off affordable housing. President Donald Trump is fired Director of Cyber agency Christopher Krebs after election statement saying that the election was the most secure ever. The president says it is highly an accurate blaming the agency in part for his loss. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is preparing plans to support as many as 250,000 jobs and a drive to boost green industries and Tackle climate change, sources say sales of petrol and diesel cars will be banned by 2030 with hybrids exempt from that target date. Mr. Trump has also ordered the Pentagon to accelerate the drawdown of U. S troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. He wants 2500 remaining in each Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell says any withdrawal of troops for the Mideast would be a humiliation akin to the American withdrawal. From Vietnam. Joe Biden is moving ahead, calling a group of advisers together today to talk security and health and a coalition of associations representing hospitals, doctors, nurses Has written a letter to Donald Trump Ng asking him to share information with the incoming Biden administration, saying failure to do so could lead to needless death in San Francisco. I'm Ed Baxter, this is Bloomberg. Paul, sir. All right. Thanks very much. It's we're gonna get to Michelle Jam risk. Oh, now she's senior Asia Economy. Reporter Tol talk about the latest on what's going on for the macro picture in Asia. And Michelle. Of course, we do have three Asia Pacific Central bank decisions this week. But you've got to wonder how much firepower do they have left? Well, that's right, Paul. I mean, certainly comes against the backdrop will believe increasingly desperate messaging from central banks around diminished firepower is he called it and fiscal authorities meeting to step up. I mean, earlier this week at the Bloomberg new economy form, we have this blockbuster panel of former Central bankers Janet Yellen, Raghuram Rajan and Mervyn King. Plus former Treasury secretary Larry Summers. And they were all talking about the danger of over playing central bankers Power right now, this it was really interesting, Paul to hear them say that maybe we've built them up too much. Maybe central bankers are seeing too much of saviors of economies and Really in this crisis, which is much different from the global financial crisis. They can't do all the targeting of specific groups that need aid as a fiscal authorities can and that legislation should be promoted to do so. Against that backdrop, Of course, we have. Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines three Very unique and dynamic central banks that are gonna be deciding this week. We don't expect to see more cuts, bond benchmark interest rates and any of those economies. Just because of that, you know, diminished firepower, at least diminished space on that policy side, but As we get Thailand letter today, one thing that will be most focused on it is, of course, that pressure on the government to get more support to the sectors that needed a swell is how they're going to send a recent rally in the body, which has always been a concerned given the currency appreciation puts a lot of pressure on exports. So expect to see that today and of course, a lot of talk about the ailing travel and tourism sector, which is a critical part of the Thai economy in Thailand, dealing this political unrest on top of it all as well. But We're also hearing a lot this week from the Bloomberg New Economy Forum on the way forward for the United States and China. What's the mood than Asia about expectations for the Biden administration's policy towards China? Yeah, It's interesting right now. I mean, there's two big faces that Asia watchers and actually businesses. They're focused on first, the final two months of Trump's tenure and then what lies ahead and abiding administration. I think there's a real fear among businesses in Washington and over here in Asia, But some damage will be done before January 20th in terms of Trump rushing the cement some of these policies around trade Investment, perhaps getting in a few more shots against targets abroad, whether via sanctions or terrorists or other policies, And I would say, including on China but also potentially other trade war targets. You think of What would have been deemed trade Ward winners like Vietnam s So there's a lot of questions around that, but also around how Biden the administration would approach Asia. For now, he's seen to be a bit preoccupied with managing the pandemic domestically. We might not get some of those answers for some time. But at the same time we do see ways in which Asia moving ahead economically and in trade, and despite external pressures in the global economy on we look no further than the signing Sunday of the world's biggest trade deal on our step for some juice, and then a big symbolic statement on that front. I would just say I mean, it was notable that we have a statement yesterday from the U. S Chamber of Commerce, saying that they feel us firms are being left behind in Asia integrates and certainly we're seeing a number of different fronts, but Asia is moving ahead on a U. S. China I would just say Yeah, we've heard I've seen this week, especially from the new Economy forum from the likes of Henry Kissinger, Hank Paulson and others that the U. S and China are in danger of hurtling towards the serious conflict if they don't establish more productive communications. I guess we'll see in the months ahead. You know what? What might lie ahead in abiding White House for that. This might have to wait till January 20 before we get a clearer picture of Michelle Gem Briscoe. Thanks so much for joining us today..

"Exhibition exhibition expansion teams are Right? Where the Rockies really lost their way. Was when Kelly McGregor passed away. He was the grown up in the room. Theo Epstein could be that for the Rockies. Not only do you have him kind of weighing in on baseball decisions, but also maybe he can. Make sure that the next superstar player for the Rockies is an alienated. Get the very least, I think he could do that. And I'm not talking about Nolan because Nolan at this point getting traded, feels inevitable. I'm just saying the next one. So if I could do it on behalf of the Rockies, I absolutely would. But That would leave less money for Dick Mom for and that would also be a good baseball decision, and we know that the strong suit of the Rockies organization Is good decisions when it comes to like Party deck or what kind of concessions toe have or a bobblehead giveaway. Really good at that. Also got a great ball park. Product on the field, though, never been this strong suit. That would change with Theo Epstein in charge. But all of this with the Rockies is spitting in the wind because it's never gonna happen. No one can drain. 5 to 2987 to take your thoughts on the three stories that are Driving the show.

People don't leave high profile Major league baseball jobs in $10 million on the table if they don't think that situation is no longer worth their time. On to be highly compensated forward, but very interesting. A Theo Epstein has told the cups. Thanks. I'm good. You keep this $10 million Like that was supposed to be a dynasty and the Cubs got that one championship started making a lot of money or more than they were already making, which was a lot And now it looks like that thing is about to be tourney down and I guess they're going to start all over again. What The Cubs. They were the gold standard for a while, which is weird to say. But now Nothing seems to be coming apart. And everybody's available record everybody Yeah, including Javi bias. You know, it's funny, I you know, First of all, nobody walks away from good jobs, right, especially during a pandemic. Not unless they have a good reason, especially with $10 million on the table.

I mean, this guy ended the curse in Chicago. He ended the curse in Boston. Um, from what I'm hearing now, I don't have any sources on this. But I've read a couple different people who seem to be in the know that it's one of two things that Theo is intrigued by. One. He might be part of the group that tries to go to the expansion route in Nashville. I know Dave Dombrowski, they say, is eyeballing that opportunity as well. But that's kind of you know the idea of being able to like start from the ground up and really build an organization from the ground up in Nashville whenever they expand. That's one of the rumors. The other rumors that feel might be up for something in Joe Biden's Cabinet. Believe it or not, that he may actually be getting out of baseball together. And then he may be going into a world politics. Who knows? What? That's what I say. When I first heard that really secretary of what building a team sports What Terry of sports. I'm not sure what his role would be. But I will say this. I've interviewed Theo before he is like one of these guys that thinks you know macro and thinks very big. And if he's mean he's leaving an iconic franchise, he says he's not interested in pursuing any Any rolls with the Mets and Phillies. Um, but why would there's there's talk that maybe he'll hold out for Nashville? And there is talk that maybe his political that makes sense that he would want to be a He wants to be an owner. That is completely understandable. What he might get a piece of the pie like Billy did Sure, absolutely. Yeah. That's the next logical step Eyes to now be the man in charge of the man sit next to the man that is in charge. I would also think that And this is just me, speculating. He doesn't want to be a part of another rebuild. He's they've done that twice now, right? I mean, I know the Cubs were had already tortured down to the stubs. It was starting to rebuild by the time he got there. From from Boston. But why? Why would you want to do that again? I mean, if we're just looking at it from the standpoint of the Cubs job. That you know he had is their president of baseball ops. Is it? Do you want to go through that again? It just doesn't seem to make sense. You you came to the Cubs because they were trending up and they had money and they were willing to spend money. And they, you know they have these assets. These young players that are not as young but still in the case of happy by is as you mentioned, Still thought of is pretty damn good player. Why would you want to be a part of a tear down and rebuild, and it's clear that the Cubs of tearing down And rebuilding. Which is interesting, considering how much money they have. How much money the Ricketts have the owners of of of the Cubs and you know they're billionaires 456 times over. And how much money Wrigley Field itself pumps out in a normal year because that place is especially the surrounding environments. That place is just a money printing machine. Yeah, it's kind of the Cubs were kind of in a weird spot, aren't they? Because they're like good. But not good enough. And it's like you wonder. I mean, I don't know. Like if if I was a Cubs fan, what? I want to see them trade away. Chris Bryant Rizzo and bias. And these guys, are they really all done? Well, I don't. I've looked up all their baseball cards, but You're not old. They're just kind of like middle age players. They're not. They're not old players, but all those guys have five years left. But it is interesting because they start to get more expensive and then They all came out of the farm system. And now have they replenished the farm system? Not really. And they've had they had the Stanford kid Nico Hainer come out of there, but not too much in recent years. But I think there was this idea that the Cubs once they got good, we're going to stay good because they have the money. They already had the money. The Ricketts come in. They have money, They turn. You know, they turned the environment around Wrigley Field into, you know, a money making opportunity along with Wrigley Field itself, you know with, you know, added signage and And expanding it and more seats and all that kind of stuff. And then what are they doing? Similar to the Red Sox. They're deciding not to spend money. So I'm thinking as a cubs fan. You're you know, you're pretty chapter about that. Like Just a sudden you're crying. Poor to a certain extent. I just think when you've had that kind of success, you start measuring yourself differently, right? You start. Oh, sure, you know, because he's he? You ended the curse in Boston. Wow. And then you go to Chicago. And you end that incredible curse. And then you sit there going Well, wait a second one. What professional challenges air out there for me. And how much do you love doing it? Do you want to? Maybe the challenge of starting from the ground up is attractive to him. Maybe getting out of it altogether is attractive to him. I think Theo idolizes Billy a little bit and the fact that Billy has is getting out of it to get into a very much more lucrative Deal where he's you know on owner Now, let's have a piece of the AIDS, but he's he's now an owner and international soccer. What? I'm not sure exactly what billions, but I know he's that's kind of the direction he's going. There's a lot more money to be made there than to be made as a general manager just depends on is that your dream, so we'll see. Well, I mean, do you want to keep working for somebody, or do you want to be the guy that people work for? Right. Have that opportunity to make that move to me. That would be the the obvious. Logical move to.

"No one expects Theo Epstein to stick around when it's five year deal ends after next year. I have the perfect replacement would have a job that would be That would spoil it. For me. That's kind of why. You know it is a little kid growing up idolizing Jack Quinlan, the Cubs radio play by play guy and W. G. And I wanted to do that, I thought, But then I realized that baseball wouldn't be fun. If I had to work that hard. It would be too much of a grind. So I decided to just dabble in sports once in a while and not do it every day in a row. The guy said, No. Who do baseball were having a pretty good time. Well, young you can have that job for a long time. Can she look at Vin Scully? But I remember once having this conversation with Harry Carey and here he was telling me Well, you know, everybody, Khun, anybody could do Ah, do the games when your team is contending for you know the championship, But when you're 50 games out of first place in in August It's you know, you gotta work a little bit S O. I think that the the new Cubs president of baseball operations after Theo decides to move on should be And I know everybody thinks well, Jet higher. That makes the most sense. He's been the number two guy so forth. But here's what I what I am suggesting. And I'm predicting now, remember, you heard it here first. John McDonough returns to the Cubs. To take that job. No, I know Jed Wire might be miffed and he might leave. You might lose him. But I think I'd like to see John back in that role for for riot of reasons, many of them selfish, but He's not doing anything right, and he certainly knows how to market and he's proven himself with the black Hawks and and the Cubs before that, So why not? John's a great friend, and that's a good idea if you talked to Ron lately, not lately, but but I'm just thinking you were touting him for Ah, job with the white sound. That's right. Yeah, Yeah, it is great. I didn't even know he had an agent, And here you are. I'm working. I'm working for you, John. AH, today sponsor thinking about baseball.

You kind of ran the dugout, you know, and I was the one in reserves roll now. You know, providing all the jokes and the stick and provide the energy for the for the guys in war plans, so I knew he had provided. I think the The area that surprised me. The most is just How willing he is to lead in the difficult conversation. I think any leader in any field at the time is guilty of, um Not having this conversation, sweeping things under the rug or putting her head in the sand, hoping things get better just because the other tough issues to deal with and especially when their first major league manager, especially in the middle of a global pandemic, that could just be Every day. There's come up that you need to kind of express offers you Khun Pig in a race. I didn't expect him in the first year manager to be so willing tohave. You know every difficult conversation to confront every issue to be proactive and it's been. It's been really refreshing to see and I think it helped create.

I don't know, but Maybe they always knew well, he's never going to be able to play the field and we can go ahead and get rid of them and he can d h in the American League somewhere. But there was a lot of nonsense earlier in the week about alloys of Boston. He's this or that A lawyer. Minutes is not a bust, and he's still very young and is going to continue to be a very impactful. Offensive player. His power is just too ridiculous is raw, opposite field power. Everything A bottom is an offensive hitter. You know, when is trending in a good direction? You just like him to be a little bit more patient and walk more, But he's still young and hopefully that comes with age but terrible. His last two homers have been apple. Everything they have. He hits him. And if you look at his home run chart, what is yet now like nearing 40 for his career, he's got a great spray church. You're going to find a few of them that are into that right over that right field fence and into the Gap in right center field. He's got just that kind of raw, natural, ridiculous power, so he's not a bust. They can be frustrating at times. I just wish you would stop running into the net and into the wall. It's ridiculous, So it's like a hammock form, you know. Tonight's a hammock in the corner. Maybe he and chance you could go hang out there. I mean, come on.

Cubs reach deal with 7-time All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel
"Did you know the cubs are third in major league baseball with eleven blown saves third worst when it comes to blown saves in baseball eleven of them just for a second there think about how different their record could look if they didn't blow half of those games. Let's say they only have five blown saves. You're talking about already getting to forty wins being among the best, not just in the National League. But in major league baseball. And so to address this issue. Theo Epstein of the cubs goes out and finally gives Craig kimbrel. A new home Craig kimbrel who wanted to be a hundred million dollar man has settled, I'm using air quotations here. He settled for a three year deal option for a fourth forty three million dollars. Was it worth the seven-month awake? Well, only Craig kimbrel cancer that question. Seven months of free agency probably a ton of angst. But he'll earn ten billion to go through the rest of this season with the Chicago Cubs, and then fifteen million dollars each in twenty twenty and then twenty twenty one. It's I think a huge bargain for the cubs. When you consider what he was asking for right? Part of the reason that he was unsigned for so long is because it's asking price. He wanted it to be seven figures seven figures, he wanted to be nine figures. It's only eight math. He wanted two hundred million. But there was no team out there willing to give him that. I think it's better to play baseball for forty three million then to not play baseball at all. But what do I know? Hill report to the cubs for his physical on Thursday and the idea right now is that he'll be ready to pitch within two weeks? The scene had made comments after the news broke before he did admit that they had interest in Craig kimbrel, and that it was kind of a bonus for them. This point in the season. There are usually quality free agents. Just lying

The end of the year no more Yu Darvish for. The Chicago, Cubs this season and the I guess the good part is the ligament that was repaired from his. Tommy John surgery is fine so he will not. Need any Tommy John surgery he'll just have to deal with this and should be back for next year because the philosophy is if he has, to have Tommy John surgery he's out, for a whole 'nother year then you lose him for two years essentially of his contract and then. Futures up in the, air but now you know it's not. That he was being soft there was there's something wrong something was found and gave reason to. Why he was in pain and this is why you Darvish may very well in a short matter of time become one of the most polarizing players for us to watch Chicago sports fans since Jay Cutler Because we until now haven't known whether or not he was actually hurt or if he couldn't handle the moment right and that allows people, to speculate on the character of the, player now he's hurt so he's going to be done for the season but it's something that's always.
