Cubs Aren’t Moving Kris Bryant, Willson Contreras for Less Than ‘Absurd’ Offers

There’s already been so much talk about Kris Bryant and Willson Contreras that the last thing anyone needs is a recap of all the rumors. Suffice to say both are at the forefront of Winter Meetings conversations because of their extreme value. But don’t let the talk of their need to shed salary fool you, the Cubs aren’t going to unload either player just for the hell of it.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, via paraphrased Bleacher Nation tweets, Bryant isn’t moving for less than a “huge offer” and the ask for Contreras is “absurd.” That’s how it should be, since the net return for either needs to be one that makes the Cubs more competitive by 2021 at the very latest.
