I cant remember this ownership sending cash in a trade.

The Cubs could offer to pay all of Darvish’s salary and my answer would still be NO.

I freely admit that this is the major problem. For some reason, this team abhors sending straight cash in trades. However, I have seen them take back bad contracts in trades. When they traded Frazier, Robertson, and Kahnle, they took back Tyler Clippard instead of just sending cash. Maybe it's a psychological thing where they feel they need to be getting some utility out of the money, even if it's bad utility. That is why I suggested the Gurriel swap. He absolutely sucks and will cost $8.4 million next year, but he has "positional versatility," and his cost is basically the same as what they are paying Alonso to absolutely suck.

I think the Cubs made a big mistake getting Darvish and paying all that cash. I don't trust his mental toughness. So I wouldn't make the Cubs mistake, my teams mistake.
