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

It's like my first love, it's my it was the first thing that I've binged on the watch better call Saul does that sort of scratch, your rich at all couldn't get into it. Now, it wasn't as well done. Even after the first couple of episodes. We're well. Done. They weren't that kind of well-done though. Stan Van Gundy in with us as he is Wednesdays during basketball season, he loves his baseball. And I wanted to get into this story involving THEO Epstein and Joe Madden, THEO obscene. It can be argued is one of the best sports executives ever. He did a couple of things before the age of forty that. No one had done with the Red Sox and the cubs and Joe Madden is by all accounts except for stugatz. Who always makes fun of Joe Joe Madden is considered a pioneer and exceptional CEO type an exceptional manager of people and personalities he's considered ahead of the game in terms of data and just management style. Very smart, dude. And now THEO Epstein, these are too smart dudes at the top of that particular organization and organization that under their watch is better than it's ever been. And he is saying to Joe Madden, you're entering the fifth and final year of your deal. And this is the quote from Epstein, we're really focused on digging in and finding ways to get the absolute most of two thousand nineteen Joe understood the only concern expressed is it could be a bit of a distraction at some point. I decided the best thing was to get that news out now. So THEO Epstein has decided in November. Hey, we're not extending Madden. And he's hoping that it goes away before spring training. What do you make of that? Stan is someone who's been in both positions as president and coach. Well, well, first of all he he's living in fantasy land. The story's not going away. It will be v story day one of spring training next year, and it will continue all year if they get off to a good start. They're going to wonder why they don't extend him if they get off to a bad start. It'll be mad. On the hot seat. I mean, we can all see the stories coming. So will it be a distraction? Of course, it will. But these things happen all the time. I mean, the tension between front offices and coaches in this case managers is there all the time. And there are some organizations. I would cite the Celtics in our league, certainly San Antonio people like that who really are all on the same page moving forward. But there's those situations are rare in most cases, there's a fight between the front office in in managers coaches, whatever depending on the sport, he's three eighty seven and two sixty one and he's won the World Series. As as the cubs manager. You surprised at THEO is noncommittal the Joe, Matt? And that seems odd. I'm I do think it's weird. I I'm not clear on what the play is other than okay? These are our new. Cubs standards. We are playing for the title every single year period. Are you doing radio are you actually taking the side of Joe Madden and the Suge? No, I'm not taking the side of Joe Madden. But I'm the only dope who've used Joe Madden. The way. I've you Joe Madden. I'm surprised. Theo Epstein agrees with me. Sure, he agrees with you. But things like he does that. Well, maybe but but here's the thing. You gotta understand. So the steel Epsteins the general manager Madden works for him. But the teens other job obviously is to acquire players and all of those guys wants you to believe that they have the best team. So THEO Epstein thought is I've put the best team on the field. Geez.

Up something that I've been thinking it. I mean, the way you hire is you know, you hire the the top assistant for the company or the team that does something successful to come in and run. You're a team that worked out great for for the Red Sox this year, hiring outscore who's a bench coach on the Astros last year. And you know, they while the World Series this year fixed a lot of their the problems that are preventing that prevented them from doing. So under John Farrell and your point about homogenization is a smart one. Because if everybody is smart in the same ways than it than the playing field just levels out that it just becomes about resources that execution and it's going to take a real paradigm shifting GM in our I said this when I wrote about the team two years ago, the next THEO Epstein isn't gonna come from one of these traditional backgrounds.

And we talk a lot about what teams learn from successful teams. But usually that's on the field. Whether it's you know, the royals with how they deployed a bullpen or you know, how teams build up their roster cetera. But this is really going sort of the next level. What they look like behind the scenes and how they build up research departments and baseball analytics departments is sort of where a lot of this stuff happens that we don't just have the access to that. We do too managers and clubhouses, and it's not just it's not just a matter of identifying the people had the last insight or it's not a matter of identifying the next insight or even the people who had the the last insight.

But I don't think anybody expected whatever fifteen games into the season right to see a chance so fast, and on his behalf Joel Quenneville behalf as soon as he decides he wants to be a coach on an NHL team.

And you know the the curse was lifted when you were there you went to. Titles and, then you're in Chicago they win title and you see the difference in fan after the title was one and it almost the greed of wanting to? Go after and I asked that because of the giant fans wanting. More or wanting, to, rebuild I mean can you kind of go into it. A little bit what you think as far. As where is that threshold for a team, to maybe look at let's break this all the way down and build it back up but. I mean look there's only one THEO Epstein and he's he's in Chicago he's not here what we're where's. That threshold Yeah it's, it's, it's an interesting dynamic right in baseball and I think. We're seeing it. More now than ever and Especially because Houston and Chicago the way they did it a losing so many games you know. Like hey let's just finish lose one. Hundred games every year and just rebuild this whole. Thing from the ground out and it worked for both those teams now that doesn't work for everyone. Because, it's hard I mean it's hard to build a team. From the ground. Up and you have. To get lucky yeah you're gonna have to get a, couple of young stud, there's draft in there's a, couple guys you signed. For great deals that last and they're cheap and then you. Know you can afford, their sign a big free agent I think we're seeing a lot of teams kind of the that's where. I, mean some. People say they just throw in the, towel before the season and some of these records are awful But, you know it's hard I, mean the hard thing with the giants to they have, great fan, base, right, in the winning for so many years and they got they got a lot of money you know they got a lot of money to spend. So you it's different when you're in Houston and. In Chicago where you can kind of played off a little bit more but with the giants it's. Because, they do have that luxury of spending money and they.

"That's it. It's it's fine. It's when you've had the disappointment that they've had and, and again, what makes that interesting? At least for the nationals right now to figure out how to compartmentalize is they got this drama, they got all these issues, but they are still sort of within striking distance. So you know, there's gotta be some attempt to fix it. It feels like that's what they're trying to do. The weirdest part of it was the team was up twenty five to one when he went in. So it's weird that he would be that frustrated when his team is up that much when everybody's feeling good, but it's also weird that they would react that way. So if they've got seven days to trade or release him, if he's released, they own one point. Eight million left on his five and a half million dollar salary. They can find a trade partner. He'd be eligible for some bonuses and and some other stuff, but he leaves right after right hander, Brandon. Kinzler. Leads to my Chicago comes.

You know, we're still trying, but you know, I was actually a little confused about why they were both selling him, but not really dumping everybody. And so it turns out they think that he's the leak of all their clubhouse gossip, but THEO Epstein called Jeff pass or sorry, Jeff, passan called THEO. Epstein unprovoked unsolicited to say. I've never spoken to or communicated with Brandon Kinzler in my life. It's a false report. And so he's trying to assure Epstein, listen, this guy you've just got from the from the Washington nationals. He's not a mess. He's not a clubhouse cancer. The stories I've been writing about the clubhouse, none of that information was coming from Brandon Kinzler. The question is, did they just try to find a scapegoat fits that? They just try to say, this is a guy we can get a deal for and maybe people will buy that. He was the problem that he was two three with clubhouse information and cr-. Criticism. I mean it feels like it, but that's also a terrible statement to make because you know who that ultimately affects the guys in the locker room that actually know what is going on and the guys they know whether he's the guy or not. And that's the moment where you're looking at it say, no, if they got rid of him and there's a piece in the locker room which is already fragmented according to what we're hearing, if that fragmented locker room sees that move in and it strikes them as disingenuous that's only going to make the locker room sort of tear apart even more away from the organization and even away from each other as they'll they'll be looking at each other saying, we'll if it's really you or if it's really him, why did we get rid of this guy? I mean, that's these are the questions. It feels like the NATs have become just as joke at this point because of all, and I'll tell you what you know when dusty Baker, the rumors that they were going to let go of him. I can't remember my take, but I think I was torn. I think I thought maybe his voice just doesn't have the power that it used to be after a certain amount of time. Sometimes you can struggle to motivate if guys are sick of here new, but he. We had two excellent years that led the team to one hundred ninety two and one thirty. Two, they were in the postseason contending. So you look at all that's gone on including that five hundred record and all the drama, and you're looking back and saying, maybe you should've kept us. Yeah, and that's going to be one of those moments. I saved all the time change for the sake of change isn't always the best situation.
