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?
Month: February 2012
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.
Cubs fan Brian Pasnik wants to join the MLB Fan Cave. Let’s help him do it.
What may be the last Lukewarm Stove of the offseason. The latest on the biggest names left in the rumor mill.
Chicago Magazine ranks the most powerful Chicagoans and a couple Cubs make the list.
And he doesn’t quite cost what he once would have. A bunch more Cubs have showed up in Mesa, the roster looks dicey, and the outfield looks crowded.
A massive rundown on today’s developments in the Cubs’ efforts to (eventually) sign Cuban prospect Jorge Soler.
A rumor about the Cubs’ 2013 home sprouted and wilted quickly. But is this really the last we’re going to hear about it?
The right-hander would be depth for the depth.
The Cubs and Red Sox love to fight, Baseball American doesn’t love Gerardo Concepcion, Ozzie Guillen loves to talk, and I love cat sleepwear.
Landing the 19-year-old Cuban prospect could be a huge signing for the Chicago Cubs.
Brett Jackson, Javier Baez, and Anthony Rizzo make the cut, among other notable bits of information.
Where did that come from?
The Cubs may even be the favorite to land the youngster, and are willing to spend heavily to do it.
Cespedes and the Miami Marlins get closer and closer to nailing down a deal.
It’s like the ‘Song That Never Ends,’ except it’s a story. An annoying one. Like the song. Keith Law talks about Cubs prospects, and Carrie Muskat previews Spring Training.
The Marlins might not have even offered $40 million. Many teams are still in on Cespedes, the Cubs might be in on Edgar Renteria, and a couple big MLB decisions could come down this week.
Guillen praises Cespedes, but also calls him a gamble, and a player the Marlins don’t need. Also: does Cespedes have a six-year, $40 million offer from the Marlins?
He seems a little frustrated, so at least there’s that. Ozzie Guillen loves Carlos Zambrano, a few more guys show up in Mesa, and Dillon Maples is fluffy.
If nine-game packs were a bit too much, and you don’t want to wait for single-game tickets (March 9), here’s another option.
Jed Hoyer doesn’t sound overly committed to Alfonso Soriano or Matt Garza, and do the Cubs still have a good chance at Yoenis Cespedes?
Law is high on Anthony Rizzo, but not quite as high on Brett Jackson as others.
