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.
Archive for February, 2012
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.
The Cubs spent big on a 19-year-old pitching prospect last week. Was it worth it? What do we know about Gerardo Concepcion?
The rumor mill doesn’t shut down for medical procedures. The latest on the prolonged Lukewarm Stove.
Not abysmal, but not even close to good. The Cubs’ farm system is ranked 20th, Adrian Cardenas is a writer, and Dale Sveum expects hard work.
Looks like there will be at least a dozen games on national TV, and more than 60 on WGN.
Anthony Rizzo, not Brett Jackson, takes the top spot, with familiar faces filling in the rest of the list.
That doesn’t mean the Cuban outfielder will ultimately sign with the Marlins, but, well, let’s just say Marlins’ fans have reasons to be optimistic.
The 2012 Cubs would be a lot better with Matt Garza. But what about the 2013 and 2014 Cubs? What to do, what to do.
That’s still good, right? A few more players have showed up early at Spring Training, the Cubs are highly analytical, and Geovany Soto has abs.
He’s a light-fielding, decent-hitting utility player who’ll fight for a 25-man roster spot in Spring Training.
He still doesn’t have his work visa yet, though.
While we’re still obsessing about Yoenis Cespedes (obsespedes?), one of the Cubs’ draft picks might drop a bit. The Reds might make one of their young starters available.
