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.
I’ll confess, I’m pretty surprised by Epstein’s response when asked, point blank, about rumors connecting him to the Chicago Cubs.
A Cubs prospect gets suspended for the second time, Bryan LaHair is coming up, Andrew Cashner throws again today, Starlin Castro is ok, and Jeff Samardzija has lustrous hair.
