A delay in Cespedes’ DR residency has held up the free agency process.
But what did he really say, and what does it really mean? The Cubs’ coaching staff has been finalized, unlike the Theo Epstein compensation.
The 29-year-old lefty is coming off a good season ended early by a shoulder strain.
I’ve been using a certain photo of Prince Fielder for the Obsessive Prince Fielder Watch, and it occurs to me that this thing is ripe for captioning. I mean, just look at it. The possibilities are endless.
We’ve reached the point where, were I a fan of, say, the Mariners, I’d be thinking, “aw, crud, Fielder’s going to the Cubs.” But, as a Cubs fan, I still can’t see it as better than 50/50.
The latest news and rumors from around baseball touching on the Chicago Cubs.
Grumble. They could be wrong, I suppose. More on Darvish, the Wrigley renovation, an international draft, a prospect list, and Tony LaRussa defending Albert Pujols.

The Yankees recently won the rights to the middle infielder, but might be looking to trade him.
The bids are in on Yu Darvish, and the Cubs are among the bidders. Now, we wait. Carlos Zambrano is back on the mound, Kerry Wood reminisces, and the Aramis Ramirez sky isn’t falling.
Rumors that don’t exactly get the heart pumping, but could yield useful pieces.
The Cubs have made at least one $20 million investment this offseason.
The national media keeps saying the Cubs are a leading contender for Fielder, while the local media shies away. It’s probably worth considering the source.
