Sveum says Samardzija is “built to start.” Sveum is thrilled to be in Mesa, John Gaub’s back is ailing, and Jim Hendry is still a nice guy who had only modest success.
The Cubs’ President of Baseball Operations is excited to get back to baseball, and to start implementing “The Cubs’ Way.”
The former long-time Detroit Tigers lefty pitched rather poorly in AAA last year.
DeWitt can become a free agent this week if he wants. Boston may not be expecting a ton for Theo Epstein after all, Dale Sveum says the rotation is wide open, and the White Sox want Jorge Soler.
New $eating, patio$, and an LED $ign are all on the way. Those dollar signs were not $arcastic. A minor leaguer is suspended for PEDs, and a non-update on a Matt Garza extension.
Today marks the official start of 2012 Spring Training, even if very few players are actually going to report today.
Presumably, DeWitt will still head to Spring Training hoping to make the 25-man roster to start the year.
We’ve all seen the pattern. 2011 was a down year for Soto, so does that mean he’s a lock for a good year in 2012?
Zambrano is happy to be in Miami, but has no hard feelings toward the Cubs.
When exactly are the Cubs expected to be good? The Blake DeWitt situation should be resolved today, Spring Training is around the corner, and a chance to see Shiraz Rehman.
It seems all sources agree that a decision is coming within the next few days.
The Yankees and Phillies join the Cubs in hot pursuit of the 19-year-old, but is any team willing to give him a historic contract?
Why did Campana’s BA and OBP drop so considerably last year, and can he do anything about it?
Another award for the big first baseman. But it’s what he does in early 2012 that will matter most.
We’re happy to have Woody back, too, but no one is expecting big things this year. Including Kerry Wood.
Robinson Lopez is a Cub no more. Resolution on Blake DeWitt should come soon, Ramon Ortiz heads elsewhere, and the organizational meetins are underway.
It’s safe to say that any understanding between Soler and the Chicago Cubs is “loose” in the extreme.
What may be the last Lukewarm Stove of the offseason. The latest on the biggest names left in the rumor mill.
