It turns out there’s still plenty to discuss on the Lukewarm Stove, include bits on Marlon Byrd, Kerry Wood, Carlos Marmol, Brad Lidge, Edwin Jackson, and much more.
There’s a great deal of smoke surrounding these Matt Garza trade talks, but with so many teams still involved, and the stakes so high for both sides in a trade, anything could happen.
Z’s second post-facial injury start was not great, the 2011 Cubs were bad, Wrigley Field caught fire, and Tom Ricketts looks forward to the future.
Trade talks are both serious and ongoing, but how likely is Garza to actually be moved? If he’s not moved, is there another option?
Even if Fielder would take a three-year deal, would the Cubs want to make that kind of offer?
A closer look at the two newest Chicago Cubs prospects, outfielder Dave Sappelt and second baseman Ronald Torreyes.
The reserve outfielder is optimistic about 2012. Jed Hoyer was brilliant in San Diego, the Cubs’ payroll was one of few decliners last year, and Manny Corpas’ deal with the Cubs is pretty reasonable.
The latest Cubs rumors are heavy on the “sell side” of the equation.
The Cubs remain interested in both players, and free agency is coming soon for each. But are some of the other large market clubs still in on Cespedes?
With two new pitchers on the 40-man, the Cubs are running out of room. For now. Jeff Samardzija may get a crack at the rotation, Matt Dorey is excited about the Cubs, and Carlos Zambrano is “Bush League.”
The reliever/starter gets a non-guaranteed deal, as does reliever Manny Corpas.
The switch-hitting 29-year-old will compete for a back-up job on the Cubs in 2012.
The latest on Matt Garza and Carlos Marmol trade talks, Prince Fielder’s many suitors and lofty demands, the Cubs’ plans at first base, and the possibility of shopping Ryan Dempster.
