There will be a pre-sale on March 4 for those who are willing to pay a little extra.
Month: February 2014
The Spring rotation will start out Samardzija, Rusin, Wood, Jackson, Hammel.
Major trades in Spring Training are rare, but this offseason has been unusual.
Villanueva, in particular, gets serious praise. He may be the top defensive third baseman in the minors.
Right now, the Cubs just slide into the bottom third, below the median MLB level of about $100 million.
I’ll be in Mesa for Spring Training the week of March 3.
Don’t jack the catcher unless you have to, and don’t block the plate without the ball. That’s the gist.
The worst transactions of the offseason? Many were the ones for which Cubs fans were pining.
It sounds like he’s at least getting a little work out there now.
Might they sit out until June? Might the system change soon? How would the Cubs’ plans be impacted?
The Blue Jays didn’t spend much this offseason … think Boras approves?
That’s your meta piece of the Bullets. The Cubs stuff includes more good Olt news and a Lake foul ball accident.
I’m not sure Gardner would have been a likely Cubs target anyway.
Fellow hard-throwing righty Armando Rivero getting some love, too. Olt still seeing well, Arrieta coming along.
Arrieta didn’t make it off of a mound this week, Schierholtz sent him, McDonald throws.
Nelson Cruz gets a little deal from the Orioles. Also many Cubs outfield bits.
Or maybe five? Ten? A hundred!? BREAK ALL THE WINDOWS.
Protip: Don’t park your car within three miles of Cubs Park in Arizona. It’s not safe.
Are Eloy Jimenez and Gleyber Torres going to start the year in the AZL? Update on Kevin Encarnacion, props for Albert Almora.
Setting aside all other reasons to acquire veteran, impact talent, it’s important for the development of prospects.
The slim chance that the Cubs can reclaim 2012 Mike Olt starts this week. The extremely early returns are good.
Bonifacio gets all of the Bullets these days. Let’s check out his projections for 2014.
The Rangers may soon need another pitcher, and the Braves will probably never have another free agent.
Two reports have that over 10 years, and two others have it over 14 years. Either way, it’s a healthy chunk of change.
Optimism is the order of the day in the Spring. It’s just the way things are.
There are 71 games on WGN, including the opener against the Pirates.
