The Mailbag: Which Cubs Prospect Is Going To Be A Bust?

Screen Shot 2014-07-26 at 9.48.45 AM

Welcome to The Chicago Homer’s Mailbag. It runs once a week unless it doesn’t, and in it I answer questions from readers via Twitter or email. The questions can be about any damn thing you please, and there likely isn’t a question I won’t answer. There may be questions I can’t answer, but I’ll try.

If you’d like to submit a question for the next edition of the mailbag it’s pretty simple. Either ask the question on Twitter using the #AskTCH hashtag — as long as you use the hashtag I will see it — or send an email to TCHMailbag@gmail.com.

Minnesota Continues To Negotiate Trade For Kevin Love Through The Media

loverumors

On Tuesday rumors surfaced that the Bulls were still very much involved in the Kevin Love Trade Sweepstakes. Though most of the focus on Love the last few weeks has been about the Timberwolves and Cavs discussing a deal that would involve Andrew Wiggins, the top pick in last month’s draft, it wasn’t that surprising to find out that the Bulls would still have interest in love.

After all, getting Love from the Wolves would not only improve the Bulls roster, but it’d keep the Cavs — a division rival that just got LeBron James back — from getting him as well. It’s just there was one small problem with the Tuesday’s rumor.

By most accounts, it was Minnesota leaking the Bulls supposed interest.

A Eulogy For Carlos Boozer

Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

I come here tonight to say goodbye. The Bulls announced Tuesday night that they would be using the amnesty provision on Carlos Boozer, just like we all figured they would. For some the news was a moment of celebration.

I am not shedding tears over it, either, but you know what? While saying goodbye to Boozer is absolutely the right move for the Bulls, I want to make one thing clear.

Carlos Boozer didn’t suck.

On Wednesday it was announced that Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane had signed contract extensions with the Blackhawks that would see both making $10.5 million a year starting in the 2015-16 season.

It also means they’ll be the highest paid players in NHL history, but how do their salaries compare to other athletes in Chicago? Well, not all that well, actually.

So Why The Sudden Interest In Pau Gasol?

paugasol

This really shouldn’t surprise any of you because, as far as I can remember, way back to the long, long ago, the Bulls have been linked to Pau Gasol. Be it via free agency, or a trade, the “Bulls interested in Pau Gasol” stories always seem to rise from he ashes like a phoenix that keeps killing itself just to come back again.

And that phoenix, it has risen once more.

Trying To Make Sense Of The McDermott Trade

Shortly after I published the Mailbag on Saturday I received another question from a reader, and rather than wait until next week’s AskTCH, I decided to just answer it in its own post today. The question was from reader Casey Boguslaw, and it was about the Bulls decision to trade both their first round draft picks this year, and a second-rounder next year for Doug McDermott and Anthony Randolph.

Ranking The Bulls Draft Picks Since 1994

joakimdraftnight

The NBA Draft is on Thursday night, and as things currently stand, the Bulls have two picks: No. 16 and No. 19. Whether or not they’ll actually be making those picks remains to be seen, as there have been plenty of rumors about how they’re looking to move them to make more room for a Carmelo Anthony or Kevin Love under the salary cap.
