The Lukewarm Stove is pretty obsessed with Yoenis Cespedes at this point, as you’d expect.

I want to party with them. Cespedes and Soler would be top five prospects, Keith Law discusses two current prospects, and Tony Campana knows where his bread is buttered.
Corpas gets a non-roster invite to Spring Training instead. Swell.
As you’d expect, they are Brett Jackson, Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez.
Hopefully Bosio will have more success this year than Mark Riggins had last year – or at least, more success than it originally looked like Riggins was having.
It may still be unlikely, but what’s wrong with cheering for a huge LaHair season in 2012? Rudy Jaramillo lends a hand, Chicago ad men are upset, and a meta discussion on the nature of reporting rumors nowadays.
Things are looking up for the Cubs, but, hey, anything can happen.
A thorough rundown of the criteria used in deciding an arbitration case, the Cubs’ best arguments, and Matt Garza’s best arguments.
The Tigers signed Prince Fielder – what does it mean for Matt Garza and Yoenis Cespedes? Plus bits on others, and all that.
If he can keep pitching like he did in the second half of 2011, it’s easy to see why the Cubs think he has a chance to succeed as a starter in 2012.
LaRussa will be back for the 2012 All-Star Game. The Cubs may have saved some money on Carlos Zambrano, the Cubs don’t have a cleanup hitter, and the Cubs are still a “favorite” to win it all.
Yoenis Cespedes: Resident of the Dominican Republic (UPDATE: And One Report Says Cespedes is Officially a Free Agent Now)
The major hurdle to Cespdes’ impending free agency has now been cleared.
Scott Boras pulls the strings masterfully, once again.
The Yankees are looking to pick up a bat in exchange for some surplus pitching, Yoenis Cespedes may (finally) be nearing free agency, and Prince Fielder is still somehow relevant.
The new LED board in right field is probably just the beginning of additional revenue-generating opportunities coming to Wrigley Field.
