Keppinger is off the Cubs’ board, and it looks like he’s going to the other side of Chicago.
Month: December 2012
He’s got a long way to bounce.
Annually one of the most fun – even if overrated – events of the year. So what can we expect from the Cubs? Is it even possible to credibly answer that?
That doesn’t mean the Cubs will deal them for certain, but it’s nice to have options.
Rumors abound this week, and we talk about a great many names to which the Cubs have been attached.
Some overnight/early morning tidbits from Nashville.
Sveum shared a hunting story, and talked about Brett Jackson’s changes. Matt Garza is ready to start throwing, and more.
He is likely a better fit there than he would have been with the Cubs.
Day Two of the Winter Meetings is in the books. It was another quiet one for the Cubs, and quiet for most of baseball.
Three years and $39 million. Yo.
Bruce Levine Chats from the Winter Meetings: Ellsbury, Garza, Marmol, McLouth, Bourn, Escobar, Soriano, More
Bruce does his chattin’ thing from down in Nashville.
One of the Cubs’ top prospects, and a pitcher who made his debut with the big club last year.
It was a disaster two years ago, and Kap doesn’t want anyone to forget.
Does Victorino makes sense for the Cubs? Any more sense than Michael Bourn?
A healthy dose of rumors from the second morning in Nashville.
The Cubs’ President speaks from the Winter Meetings, where the Cubs are still considering all of their options.
After Upton, Span, and Pagan have departed from the market, do the Cubs really have options in center field? Is that why they say they’re looking in right field?
A controversial player, to be sure, but one that offers a whole lot of value. Could he be the Cubs’ next third baseman?
Everyone loves Jim Deshaies, Kyuji Fujikawa coming in for a physical, and a legitimate reason to use the word “boner.”
Winter Meetings Monday Evening: Looking for a RF and Reliever, Stewart, Soriano, Escobar, Soria, Nolasco, More
It was a relatively quiet first day at the Winter Meetings for the Cubs, but Theo Epstein spoke to reports tonight, and dropped some thoughts.
It shouldn’t be a surprise to you or him, but it’s nice to see the Cubs trying to keep him in the loop.
The Cubs weren’t in on Pagan, but what does the move do to the center field market? To the Phillies? To Michael Bourn?
Report: Jim Deshaies is Going to Be the Cubs’ New Color Broadcaster (UPDATE: A Second Report Agrees)
So says Danny Knobler. If so, it would be a very good get by all accounts.
The 36-year-old righty was one of the best relievers in baseball last year. And, what do you know? The Cubs’ pen was one of the worst.
There are already a number of rumors to parse, and the Meetings have been going on for all of a few hours.
It’s a deep, talented list, with a few surprises.
