    Yes, yes they do. Hopefully with an actual normal off season , they will regain said energy.
    Some key pieces in a lot of the highlights long gone now , Dex, Rossy,Jake, Chapman,and the other's missing in another way, Addie, Schwarb's ~ that's the thing about magical season's, almost impossible to recreate. Those 2 singles by Schwarb's? I imagine those are his insurance policy against being traded. Theo just love's everything about Kyle and for good reason...I just see him having a very hard time parting with the #12, but then again, Theo is on a mission. I am not sold that Addie is being traded immediately either. If his bat shows up in ST, he may remain, at least until his value goes up or Theo sees if he is a distraction or not. Rossy is the one piece that the Cubs could try and regain in an actual capacity that does something. We need a closer, I'd love to see Doolittle but dreaming. I am curious and anxious to see how Rizzo is next season. I will get flamed for this but all the guys who have gotten married or major life change have tanked that season~ KB, Willy, getting married~Chatwood, CJ/AAJ with kid #2(arriving and/or expecting)Addie in his own category.
    2 that improved tho, JHey after splitting from his Fiance' and Javy grew up a TON once he had a baby on the way and was on fire after getting engaged, had a great week when his son was born.
    speaking of son's being born, Antino Albert Almora has arrived!

    Cubs still the most recent NL team to get the trohy,lol. I can appreciate Theo's Midas touch tho.I'll say it again~ SO MUCH TALENT across both leagues, always fun to watch. Cora getting his team a WS in his rookie year managing is something.

    Clayton Kershaw supposedly is pondering going free agent for the fall in the next three days. He's thirty years old and seems to have lost his fastball.

    And Bryce Harper wants to stay with the Nats. Probably no one will pay him what he wants.

    fine by me. Meh, Boras just stirring the pot good and early and no decision will be made until the last minute possible.
    Phillies may be willing to pay the ransom, tho

    Cubs have officially exercised José Quintana's option for 2019 and have claimed lefty Jerry Vasto off waivers from the Royals. 40-man at 35


    so I thought that the Brewers were a likely suitor for Sonny Gray, especially since the Brewer's pitching coach (Derek Johnson)was Gray's college coach. Well, today, Johnson accepted the job as the Reds new pitching coach. SO, guessing Sonny could go to Cinci now. NYY's don't really want him, he will be affordable with the right pieces. Going to be a very active winter season.
