A quick catch-up if you missed anything this weekend or later on Friday. There was a fair bit going on here at BN, given that it was a baseball-less weekend in October …
- I discussed the possible unique value of one-year guys to the Cubs next year (maybe not what you’re thinking).
- The non-center-field bleachers at Wrigley Field are basically torn down, and I also talked about the official groundbreaking ceremony for the 1060 Project.
- There was a report indicating the Royals are unlikely to re-sign Cubs target James Shields.
- Mark DeRosa and Ryan Dempster were confirmed for the Cubs Convention.
- We talked about an underdiscussed problem in evaluating whether a signing/trade move was smart or not.
- Addison Russell projects to have a solid WAR in MLB this year (if he were to play in MLB, that is).
- The Cubs’ 2014 draft gets some early post-pro-debut love.
