This is probably my favorite clip of Jose Fernandez. He was just the best and probably loved baseball more than all of us. RIP.

I sincerely thank him for being more good than bad this year. He can enjoy the ring just like everyone else

He was a perfectly acceptable fifth starter. Hell I'll go so far as to rank him above Jason Marquis, Shawn Estes, Mark Clark, and Dan Haren as far as "5th Starters for Cubs Playoff teams" go.

I would be very happy if "5th starter on World Champions" enhances his trade value.

Trader Fork strikes again! Who is the fifth starter with Hammel gone? Montgomery?

If you need me I'll be over here holding my breath for Jose Fernandez.

Heh.

Gonna be holding it for a while. He touched a lot of people.

Greetings from Petco Park, where the Padres continue to suck.

In light of the Giants (and possibly Red Sox?) fans behind me who are trying to troll by talking about how the Cubs won't win the World Series because of goats and Bartman or something, I propose the following 2016 postseason hashtag:

They clinched due to tiebreaker with Washington.

Thanks to the series when Dusty got his ass handed to him for batting Zimmerman after Harper every game come hell or high water.

Doesn't anyone want the NL Wild Card?

4. Jose Fernandez, RHP, Marlins — There’s more buzz that the Marlins will listen to offers for Fernandez this offseason. Fernandez has long been the apple of the eye of a lot of big-market teams that wouldn’t mind writing that extension check. The Dodgers, Red Sox, Yankees, and Cubs for sure would all be in line. Right now, it doesn’t appear there will be any extension talks early this offseason between Miami and Fernandez’s agent, Scott Boras, if at all.

Bye, Eloy.

Considering Jake's hitting the open market and Lackey and (if he's still here) Hammel both walk after next season, does it really make sense for the Cubs to get a rental at this point? Wouldn't it make more sense to look at guys they can keep under control for a few years?

Not sure if serious. Did you miss the part about "wouldn't mind writing that extension check"? I know it's Boras, no extensions, yadda yadda, except Strasburg just signed one instead of hitting the open market as Option A, B, C, and D for starting pitching.
