If the top suitors and the top free agents each believe they are justified in their position, only the pressure of the coming season will force a move. And even then …
Regardless of what happens the rest of this offseason, we’re gonna get to dream on the potential for one of the best offenses in 25 years.
Boom. Tanking over, competitiveness increased. This is the solution for MLB, right?
Is there a real chance that we’ll see a strike? A collusion charge? A re-opening of the CBA?
Even if the Cubs can’t get one of the top remaining arms, I’m here to say that the depth options this year are better than you usually see in February.
My mind is reeling a bit at this letter. Mentions of 1994? A Spring Training boycott? This is … wow.
Even agreeing to small changes to the game might be a struggle now that tensions are so high.
If the players can get games under two hours and fifty-five minutes in 2018, they won’t have to face a pitch clock.
That’s quite a gap in the offers and the expectation. No wonder it’s yet another “holdup” in the Darvish situation.
This is just a few minutes of fun right here.
Assuming the band stays together, Kris Bryant seems an easy number one – but what about the rest of the group?
Archer would obviously be a perfect fit for the Brewers (and, well, 15 other teams), but will the Rays ever actually pull the trigger?
Cubs’ Early-Season Schedule Offers Three Light Weeks, Surgery Results, Ricketts RNC, and Other Bullets

The former Cubs back-up catcher who briefly became the much-needed fill-in starter is headed out.
In exhibition games, I could stomach this. But as a precursor to making this change in MLB games? NO SIR. NO WAY.
Are the 2016 Chicago Cubs one of the best teams of the expansion era? (YES!)
Because you needed more Yu Darvish craziness injected into your life, right?
Another report that seems to regard the Cubs as a clear favorite.
Spring Training is almost here, and the new gear is here.
When Braun last played the infield, he was the literal worst third baseman in baseball history.
You might still feel like Schwarber is the right leadoff fit when analyzing the lineup, but there’s more to consider in that decision.
Welcome back to the week – the week where nothing will happen. Or maybe it will.
Just playing it up for the fans, or are the Brewers still looking to make another splash?
It’s OK about the prospect thing. I still think the Cubs’ farm system will be solid by the end of this year. Also: a player has used the S word.
The Cubs are still believed to be the frontrunner for Darvish, but things are still held up.
