The Cubs’ GM strongly suggests free agents like Michael Bourn aren’t in the cards for the Cubs this year, among other thoughts.
Month: January 2013
Huge number of Bullets today – an international scouting showcase, lots of grading, prospect profiles, arbitration filings, and Convention notes.
The 32-year-old righty mashes lefties, and can play all over the outfield.
The Nationals’ bullpen is stacked, and it makes me wonder what they’re planning to do.
The 20-year-old righty still has a world of talent.
The Red Sox as a Matt Garza destination? And everyone’s talking about Rick Porcello.
Thank goodness that awful fake-to-third-throw-to-first thing is going to be dead.
A way to get some of the “premium” games and avoid service fees.
What it’s like to play ball in the DR. Also love for Cubs signee Dayan Diaz, Sammy Sosa hitting bombs, and Nyjer Morgan craziness.
It’s impossible to perfectly articulate how to feel about Sammy Sosa’s time with the Cubs, and where things stand now.
All the names you’d expect to see.
The WBC runs in the first three weeks of March.
The Cubs want “a player of note” in any trade for Soriano. Is he actually worth that much when you consider other available options?
He feels it damaged the legacy of his career, and destroyed the numbers that baseball holds so sacred.
When fantasy players want a guy, that means his stats project to be pretty good.
There’s a great deal to cover from the last couple days.
What’s going to drive the excitement this year?
This one looks pretty darn good.
Ending the lovable loser tag, upgrading facilities, deferring payments, and more. Also, thoughts on the lack of an official Carlos Villanueva deal.
How much were the Mariners going to be giving up, and what does it say about the possibility of an Upton trade? Who gets him now?
Longitudinal studies and random in-season HGH testing.
The Cubs have two of the top 25 players under age 25.
The 23-year-old tore up A-ball last year (and has a pretty good reason why he was still in A-ball at 23).
Sessions, events, activities, and more.
Clearly, the Diamondbacks are looking to move the 25-year-old outfielder.
A couple of utility types who can compete for a bench job.
