    The Cubs would do this deal in a second, but I think the Giants would require both a higher-end prospect as a lead piece, and a bit more value overall — this isn’t likely to be the winning bid for those reasons.

      I actually disagree. I don’t think the Cubs would give up Alzolay for a rental of a roughly league-average pitcher, no matter his playoff pedigree. They need young, long-term starters, and Alzolay may be one. Hendricks might be hurt, but he figures to be back relatively soon, and the rest of the rotation (with the exception of Darvish) has been as good or better than Bumgarner. I really doubt they pay this premium to try to upgrade on Darvish as their fifth best starter.

        Plus, Bote has actually been one of their better 2B options .

    Yeah, you’re probably right. I started to not like it as much as soon as I posted it. lol
