Banks may have wanted to be cremated and have his ashes scattered at Wrigley Field, but that hasn’t happened.
Chicago Cubs News
The 27-year-old righty was on his fourth team of the offseason, and the Cubs were the first to successfully get him through waivers.
If you’re wondering what that means, and what comes next, here’s your rundown.
One year ago today, the Cubs revealed that Jake Arrieta had shoulder tightness and wouldn’t break camp with the big league team. Think about where it all went from there.
I don’t think you can really be all that accurate projecting win totals right now, but it’s interesting to see how many have the Cubs right there.
The outfield wall bump-out is underway, and the bleacher skeleton is taking shape. Plus, a behind-the-scenes video from the Cubs.
“They’re not going to beat us,” Adams reportedly said of the Cubs. I love rivalries.
The back end of the Cubs’ bullpen was among the five best in all of baseball last year. And, to the extent you can dream on bullpens, it could be even better in 2015.
The Cubs’ second rounder this year isn’t much lower than last year, but the team’s spending pool could be down about $1 million.
It ain’t Tampa Bay. Also: La Stella, early Spring arrivers, peace out on the Fan Cave, and a trademark fight.
There should be at least 4 more games on MLB.tv, and one more on CSN, which makes for 16 total – more than 50% better than last year.
I’d say that’s kind of like a really cool award.
The Cubs’ offer was reportedly what we suspected: limited to three years and a vesting option. Apparently, he had other four-year offers, though. In any case, it’s time to move on.
The former top Cubs prospect couldn’t get over the hump in Chicago, so he’ll try to reboot out west.
The main minor league signings, plus a few guys you might recognize like Bryant, Russell, Schwarber, Almora, Johnson, and more.
That’s what Bob Nightengale says. I’m not sure that’s enough to make me nervous, but this investigation sure has been going on a long time.
