Not sure if this will happen, but something to consider, would you guys do a Chatwood+ Happ for tropecano or another player?

or how about Russel + Happ, and than release Russel......

May goal in this trade is to acquire Happ.

Isn't the Tropecano where Ricky Ricardo led his band?

Angels are shedding payroll, for one. And why are we trying to acquire Happ? 

Pretty sure he means Ian Happ -- dude can play 2B, 3B and the OF.   But the real question for me is why would the Cubs move him.  Dude's young, can switch hit, and has upside still.

You're playing checkers and the Epstein is playing 8D chess. Sure, on the surface it seems like the Cubs could use a player like that, but you need to move to the next level. Who is the Cubs biggest competition to get to the World Series? It's the Dodgers. Who competes for market share with the Dodgers? It's the Angels. So if the Angels can get Happ it would obviously force the Dodgers to make a desperate counter move. This move will backfire, no doubt, and clear the way for the Cubs to win the pennant.

Well the cubs need to start reducing there payroll, they are at 167 mil heading into the year. 60+ mil on three guys, while guys like  Bryant, Baez and many more are entering Arb years and are getting expensive. Only contract that i see that's move able is Chatwood, at 2 yr 28 mil.

he's unavailable until January 2019. his schedule is booked as he's taken on the unenviable task of red-penning every single post made by kevinb. 

this just in:

Englishcop has been hospitalized for dehydration and exhaustion.  He's scheduled for TJ surg on his pen arm.  

A special investigative unit tasked with determining the source of the Angels pitching woes have a suspect in custody.  Upon forensic audit it was determined that upon Kevinb joining angelwin.com in 2013, the halos have endured a suspiciously high level of bad luck.  From the signings of Joe Blanton, the trade for Tommy Hanson, and injuries to almost every pitcher of value, the evidence is overwhelming.  Kevinb has pleaded guilty to 12 counts of arm slaughter and will be remanded in custody while sentencing is determined.  He could face a lifetime ban and has already surrendered his keyboard which will be set ablaze in a community bonfire while aw members dance around the flames  in celebration.

All the more reason why they would want to keep Happ....  He's cheap.  Teams typically trade bad contract for bad contract, or bad contract for low level prospects, but it's uncommon to see them throw in a quality player under club control as sweetener.
