I’m not sure Gardner would have been a likely Cubs target anyway.
Month: February 2014
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.

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.

There are 71 games on WGN, including the opener against the Pirates.
He simply believed he had the best shot at making the Cubs’ roster over other interested teams. Probably fair.
It’s actually two of the top seven if you don’t count Masahiro Tanaka as a prospect.
The Cubs were connected to Diaz last year, but we haven’t heard much lately. He could get $20 to $30 million.
Is a rooftop deal close? Is the right field sign going up? Is there spending on the way? Playoffs? PLAYOFFS?!? (Relax, Jim.)
Does any single player mean more to the 2014 – and beyond – Cubs than Castro?
