Weekend Catch-Up: Fowler Return, Victorino Signed, Villanueva Hurt, So Much More

Analysis and Commentary, Chicago Cubs News

bn baseball featureNo Chicago Cubs players won Oscars last night, which was a bummer after they did so well at awards season last year. Though it was nice to see Tommy La Stella nominated for best adapted screenplay.


Other things you may have missed this weekend …

  • The Cubs’ Spring Training season will open this week, and it’ll be Travis Wood and Kyle Hendricks getting the ball first.


  • Ian Desmond has finally signed, and he didn’t get much from the Rangers.
  • The Cubs netted Adam Warren in trade from the Yankees instead of Brett Gardner, and I’m pretty sure that’s a good thing.
  • Luis looked into the value teams place – or don’t place – on home-run-hitting, defense-optional sluggers in free agency these days.
  • Bad news out of Cubs camp, as Christian Villanueva broke his leg and is going to be out a while. At least there’s also some good news there in that link, and some fun videos, too.
