Taking a page from Theo Epstein’s book, Rizzo “denies” interest in the Cubs’ job without actually saying anything about not having interest.
Month: September 2011
State-of-the-art facility will dramatically improve the Cubs’ standing in the Dominican Republic.
Oh Dusty. Sigh. The Cubs are expected to call up three more today and a couple more soon thereafter. Andrew Cashner is officially back, Starlin Castro loves shortstop, and Brett Jackson loves America.
Carlos Marmol is either dominant or atrocious. Or he’s just ok. Which he was today.
That’s why he’s not playing in the Arizona Fall League.
Tom Ricketts will be meeting with Wilken in a couple weeks to discuss both the farm system and Wilken’s contract.
Randy Wells is pitching well, but people keep asking about 2010. Carlos Marmol remains the Cubs’ closer, Oneri Fleita speaks about his extension, and Bryan LaHair and Tony Campana perform.
The Cubs avoid the sweep.
Is Tom Ricketts assuming the baseball presidency?
Derrek Lee exacts revenge, the bullpen had been excellent, Casey Coleman is fighting, Bryan LaHair is sitting, and Carlos Pena is loving on Carlos Zambrano.
Oh, Carlos Marmol. Will you ever change?
Mike Quade believes Bryan LaHair could “make it,” though Quade’s almost never going to start him. Andrew Cashner will be back soon, Carlos Zambrano will not, and Daytona Cubs are getting hip.
The Pirates eked out a crucial victory.
It isn’t injury or call-up related. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s something to do with the Pan Am Games, which take place at the same time.
A ton of Cubs’ GM search info for your Friday consumption (12 bullets worth!). The interview process probably hasn’t started yet, a host of new names are entering the discussion, and some old favorites keep popping up.
No one was expecting him to return to the Cubs any time soon, but neither were we expecting to hear this kind of announcement from the Cubs until later in September.
If Ramirez is going to return at all, he wants multiple years. Andrew Cashner is good to go, Ryne Sandberg wants a big league job, Kerry Wood is an auctioneer, Derrek Lee is making me sad.
Former Diamondbacks GM Josh Byrnes has a lot to offer the Chicago Cubs. But few pundits (or fans) appear to be interested. Why?
If the Cubs don’t want to win next year, Soriano says, they should trade him to a team with a chance to make the playoffs.
