The Cubs released their 2012 Spring Training schedule today.
The Yankees, Red Sox, and Rangers, among them. There are a number of reasons the Cubs should be listening – and they are.
Hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo will be back in 2012, and others are expected back as well. But what about pitching coach Mark Riggins?
Could Colvin be the compensation for Epstein? The new CBA is expected tomorrow and will include HGH testing, the AFL is over, and Astros fans are pissed about the move.
Sixteen stitches later, Zambrano says he’s all right, and will make his next scheduled start in Venezuela. Ozzie Guillen is skeptical.
Can new Cubs’ manager Dale Sveum help get Prince Fielder to come to the Cubs? Wait. Are the Cubs even planning on pursuing Fielder?
Tons more from the last 24 hours of Dale-mania, including his thoughts on Zambrano, Castro and Marmol. His plans for the coaching staff, and more. Oh, and stuff on re-signing Kerry Wood. So there’s that.
The Cubs are preparing for next months’ Rule Five Draft by protecting some of their top prospects.
A round-up of the latest Chicago Cubs rumors, and relevant notes from around baseball.
The Chicago Cubs will introduce new manager Dale Sveum at a press conference at 9am. Live updating of quotes, reactions, commentary, etc. here.
Long-expected, but the vote is in. The wheels are now in motion for a different MLB experience come 2013.
The Red Sox still have the better roster, but things look grim in Boston. Epstein compensation is delayed again, everyone loves Dale Sveum, and the Cubs could consider another front office hire.
Theo and Jed wanted Sveum? Well, then I wanted Sveum.
