The former Cubs prospect is getting a look by the Baltimore Orioles.
Reports say it’s happening. Boom. (UPDATES: Doesn’t look like this one is falling through.)
The 29-year-old reliever had some tough luck in 2012, but was dominant in 2011. This could be a good one.
One of many future possible landing spots for the athletic youngster.
Sounds like this one is actually happening.
Reports suggest Villanueva will get wrapped up soon, and the Cubs are aggressively pursuing Jackson. And Matt Garza teases us all.
Villanueva and Jackson would obviously give the Cubs extreme pitching depth.
The latest from the rumor mill has the Cubs possibly sitting pretty on Edwin Jackson, the Phillies possibly grabbing leverage, and Michael Bourn possibly settling.
This week’s podcast hits the Cubs stuff as hard as it hits the totally unrelated stuff.
They have quite a bit of competition, though.
That does not necessarily mean that the Cubs will be the high bidder or that he’ll sign with the Cubs, though.
The White Sox are trying to capture the hearts and minds of Chicago’s youth.
We weren’t even yet certain the Cubs were “in” on Jackson, even if we speculated it. Sounds like he’s going to get a four-year deal.
More on the Cubs’ outfield situation, and the rotation search.
A hyped prospect with so-so numbers and an unhyped prospect with good numbers?
The Financial Particulars on Chang-Yong Lim’s Contract with the Cubs, and a Lesson on Split Contracts
He’s getting a $100,000 signing bonus, and then Minor League pay until he makes the Major Leagues.
Starter or fourth outfielder? Why hasn’t he officially signed yet? What does his addition mean for the already-present outfielders?
The details are fuzzy, but it sounds like a very sad story.
He seems to be the in vogue target for the Chicago Cubs, but does he make sense, given the state of the organization?
The 36-year-old Korean reliever gets a two-year, split minor league deal.
Forget 2013 – what are the Cubs going to do about the rotation in 2014? Garza? Lincecum? Hughes? Johnson? … Price? Hernandez?
That figure looks to drop further in 2013, depending on how things play out.
The 28-year-old righty was a very good reliever with the Indians from 2007 to 2010.
A ton to discuss on the rumor mill, including the big trade on the verge of going down, and the Cubs/Phillies outfield connection.
What happened this week, and where do the Cubs go from here? Expect to hear names like Edwin Jackson, Shaun Marcum, Carlos Villanueva, and Francisco Liriano.
Their search for a late-inning reliever continues. R.A. Dickey is almost a Blue Jay, and the Cubs’ 40-man roster is clarified.
