The Marlins want to go on an extension binge. Updates on a number of second tier starting pitchers. And more stuff, plus things.
Chicago Cubs Rumors
Lester reportedly could meet with two more teams this week. Where do things stand?
The Cubs have 10 players eligible for arbitration who must be tendered a contract today, or they become free agents. Will today be a busy day?
That reported offer squares with what we’ve heard before, but it sounds like it’s not blowing the Red Sox out of the water.
The Mets are looking to trade a starter, but not the guys you’d want to talk about. And I’m tired of Mets/Cubs pitcher rumors anyway.
Tomorrow is the deadline for tendering contracts to arbitration-eligible players, and I’m surprised to be here talking about Wood.
The 26-year-old backstop has a whole lot going for him if you can stomach the possible price.
It’s a big, big week for Lester, the Cubs, and the other involved teams. How do we see this thing shaking out?
If true, it just seems to be the way offensive prices are trending, even for aging guys with red flags.
It was a rumor-filled, news-fun holiday weekend. Here’s what you may have missed while you were chomping on mashed potatoes.
If the expectation is that Lester will be the next big name to make a decision, we might not see much movement until that happens.
There are a bunch of Samardzija-White Sox trade rumors swirling. What do we think of that, and his impending free agency?
There’s a bunch of fallout from yesterday’s big trade, and there’s probably much more to come.
That’s the report out of St. Louis today, anyway. It didn’t seem like the Cardinals were a serious threat on this one, but you never know.
At least one NL executive believes the Cubs are “in as deep” on Moncada as any other team in baseball. Hmm.
The Phillies trade demands remain unreasonably high. Maybe that’ll change in time, but, for now, nothing’s doing.
