Dan Patrick says he’s heard Braun could be cleared of PED charges. The “Cubs” like to dance, the White Sox have a superior rotation, and Wrigley’s gone country.

Cubs Prospects Continue to Get the Love – Brett Jackson is the 5th Best Outfield Prospect in Baseball
On the offensive side, the Cubs’ farm system already looks bright. About those pitchers…
A trio of Cubans are taking center stage on the Lukewarm Stove, but some old rumors are lingering.
The Cubs’ de facto ace says he’d be open to staying in Chicago long term.
Yesterday’s scout per diem kerfuffle could be much ado about nothing. The Cubs’ farm system is what we think it is, the Dodgers could sell for almost double the Cubs, and Canadian baseball players, eh.
Anthony Rizzo and Dan Vogelbach turn things around for the Cubs. A departed first baseman nets the Cubs a draft pick, the Cubs may be cutting costs, and Alfonso Soriano is a super nice guy.
His on/off year pattern could continue in 2012. The Cubs’ payroll probably won’t grow much more, Matt Garza understands business, and the Cubs (probably) sign a middle infielder.
Pena was a Type B free agent in the last year of that designation, so the Cubs get themselves a high pick for his departure.
The Tigers don’t much want Soriano or Byrd, but might still want Garza. The Rangers aren’t going to be in on Garza anymore, and the Orioles aren’t going to be in on Soriano.
Marlon Byrd has lost 40 pounds and is getting ready to go for 2012.
A chance to get an early shot at some of the more exciting Cubs tickets in 2012.
One pundit thinks so, anyway. Fausto Carmona is no more, Fergie Jenkins may or may not like Theo Epstein, and Ryan Braun pleads his case.
He’ll head to Spring Training in the hopes of emerging as something more than “emergency depth.”
And that two million difference could have serious consequences.
