Holiday Weekend Catch-Up: Mets Pitchers, Rooftops Suit, Hamels, Prospecting, More

Chicago Cubs News, Chicago Cubs Rumors, Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

bn baseball featureIn case you took a long, holiday weekend, yesterday was a pretty normal day around here, so you may have missed a bit. Let’s catch up, and rewind to Friday.


Friday, February 13

  • It was a year ago, as of Friday, that the Cubs revealed that a tight shoulder was doing to delay Jake Arrieta’s debut in 2014. How far did things come, eh?
  • The rooftops that are suing the Cubs are now also looking for a temporary restraining order against construction of the outfield signage.
  • A variety of Lukewarm Stove bits popped up late in the week.
  • Remember Gonzalez Germen? If not, I don’t blame you. The righty has bounced around a lot this offseason, and the Cubs DFA’d him almost immediately after claiming him on waivers – but they were able to get him through waivers and outright him to AAA Iowa.


  • A biggy: MLB is considering shrinking the strike zone.

Sunday, February 15

  • The first over/under on the Cubs in 2015 came out at 81.5 wins. You’d take the over, right?
  • Luke wrote about one of the Cubs’ most interesting, and maybe least discussed, outfield prospects: Bijan Rademacher.
