I'm a Cubs season ticket holder and disagree with this pretty strongly. I agree that Maddon loves Baez but to say that Cubs fans love him more than Rizzo and Bryant is insane. Baez is absolutely an electrifying player, but he is also prone to some Chris-Davis like slumps where he can't do anything. I think a good comp for Baez from an offensive perspective is Adam Jones. When he's hot, he will hit everything and when he's not, hell pull everything and strike out a lot.
If this is the rumored deal, I am passing. I would much prefer Happ and candidly think you can get Almora. The Yankees got Torres for half a year of Chapman. Take the risk, wait until the break and solicit more offers.
