The latest on a handful of players after a surprisingly rumor-filled weekend.
Player facilities obviously remain a “challenge” at Wrigley. A couple pitching prospects get a new home, optimism abounds (assuming health), and the Cubs are saving money.
The electronic board will not feature video replays, and is definitely something short of a jumbotron.
Darwin Barney leading off? Theo Epstein a star? Tom Ricketts loves Kerry Wood? Cubs players filing for arbitration? Anthony Rizzo a good kid?
Live coverage of the Convention is proving difficult. Starlin Castro issues a statement, Matt Garza isn’t bothered by trade rumors, and Prince Fielder keeps coming up.
As expected, and then not expected, and then expected again.
The latest from around MLB, with bits on how moves impact Matt Garza, how Yoenis Cespedes is trying to improve his offers, and how close the Cubs are to signing Kerry Wood.
Theo Epstein says that the Cubs need to put their young players in a position to know how to handle themselves when they come up to the big leagues.
The 2012 Cubs Convention kicks off today, and it should be an interesting time. Carlos Zambrano feels reborn, Starlin Castro gets advice, and Alfonso Soriano might get booed.
On a radio appearance today, Epstein convincingly lays out the case for minimal compensation going to Boston.
The Cubs continue to take baby steps toward technological relevance.
Castro will be in Chicago this weekend for the Cubs Convention and sources say he’ll meet with police. New Cubs manager Dale Sveum offers his thoughts on Castro.
The new guy isn’t looking to come in and change everything about Marmol.
Camp Colvin is no more. Spring games on WGN, Matt Garza’s increased effectiveness, signing bonuses for Cuban signees, and several Cubs are excited for the future.
Epstein continues to impress. Today, he candidly and carefully addressed the recent rash of Matt Garza trade rumors.
Things turn quickly. Or, appearances aren’t always as they seem. Some truism like that.
