But that offer isn't going to come for Kris Bryant right now, and the Cubs have absolutely no real incentive to trade Bryant at this stage in his career and their stage in the competitive window.
The Cubs are open to making some major moves this offseason as ESPN reported Friday that Chicago has informed other teams it's "willing to discuss trade proposals for nearly all of the players on their roster".
Untouchables? "It's semantics", said Theo Epstein, who is not shopping either Rizzo or Bryant in trade talks.
"We've never operated with untouchables". I think Olney is a perfectly fine reporter, but if that's him speaking as an analyst and dot-connector ... "Given what we're trying to accomplish, it would be virtually impossible to envision a deal that would make sense to move them". I just don't believe in untouchables. Those guys don't get traded, and that's especially true when their team is looking to add offense, and when the player is coming off of a down season that was impacted by a shoulder injury.
The Cubs have reportedly been telling teams that almost every player on the team - including Bryant - is available. When healthy, though, Bryant is a game-changing talent, who averaged 31 home runs and 91 RBIs in his first three big league seasons. He explained the Cubs have "never operated with untouchables".
Certainly the Cubs consider 2019 a crossroads season as they try to recapture the urgency and production their young core showed in 2016, with manager Joe Maddon playing out a lame-duck season.
"Teams don't stay together forever", Epstein said early in the week.
