Probably your last pre-Thanksgiving dose of the Stove. Are teams willing to meet the price for Jeff Samardzija?

Alderman Tunney has introduced an ordinance that would allow alcohol sales in the planned plaza outside of Wrigley Field.
If a team-owned RSN like CSN Houston is flailing so badly, should we be concerned about those future big bucks for the Cubs?
What’s the appropriate course with Jeff Samardzija? Also: emails out the wazoo.
The back-up catching option I suggested just a few days ago. I like this move.
It’s a densely packed ballot, and picking the right guys could be tricky.
Sahadev Sharma writes about extending or trading Samardzija, and whether a trade necessarily signals a longer rebuild.
Not just praise, but insight. Interesting thoughts all around.
The Cubs’ park is Cubs Park. Fitting, I guess, but also fairly sterile. I suspect a sponsor will come at some point.
It’s not often you see a prospect with a .358 slugging also put up a .358 wOBA. It takes a whole lot of walking.
The top ballpark in baseball? Is that even a serious question?
The Dodgers grab another starting pitcher, but it might not have a huge impact on the landscape.
Some more background on the guys you might not know as well.
If the Cubs are going to part with Samardzija now, it’ll be expensive. As it should be.
Each is about as good as a minor league free agent pitcher signing gets. Which is to say, not super sexy, but interesting.
