I’m already wondering if Villanueva is going to offer some great quotes this year. Hairston grew up a White Sox fan. So there’s that.
Month: February 2013
Dale Sveum adds that Wood is being considered for the bullpen this time around, if he doesn’t crack the rotation.
He is not yet on board with the Cubs’ night game plans, and he’s looking for the Cubs to help him build a park. Among other things.
Use proper writing conventions, scouts. The Cubs care about it.
How should we feel about Tony Campana being DFA’d? And how will the 2013 Cubs fare without him? Am I being serious right now?
Recent comments suggest he’s looking forward to a crack at free agency after a healthy season with the Cubs.
The Cubs’ Gold Glove second baseman says he doesn’t know if fans would be happy with .500, but that’s not what the Cubs are looking for.
What seemed impossible three months ago now seems merely very unlikely. But there’s an interesting comparison to be made.
Samardzija knows he stands to gain a whole lot with a solid 2013 season, and he’s got the bank account in place to take that risk.
MLB Network has a new show starting tomorrow night. It is completely ridiculous, and I can’t help but watch.
Matt Garza is Focused on Pitching Well for that Next Contract – Can the Cubs Ensure it Comes from Them?
Will the threat of being weighed down by draft pick compensation make Garza more inclined to accept a reasonable extension offer?
As Castillo develops into (hopefully) a quality starter, Navarro could help mold him into the best catcher he can be.
Well, how about that. It sounds about right for Bourn, and it’s not such a steal that I have any bad feelings about this one.
The projection system really likes Matt Garza, but not too many Cubs fare quite as well.
We’ve entered the window of plausible arrival, so you should be alerted of some coverage issues.
Another strong denial. Indeed, Marmol says he and his lawyers are trying to put his accuser in jail.
Ken Rosenthal keeps connecting the Cubs to Michael Bourn. Also, Mark Prior is still looking for a shot.
Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer offer a State of the Cubs, and talk about things to come in the future.
He doesn’t see much value in harping on last year anymore. It happened, it was a learning experience, and it’s time for 2013.
