The market has the arms the Cubs need, but some could come from unexpected corners.
MLB News and Rumors
The Red Sox are getting crushed by MLB for trying to circumvent the IFA signing rules.
The Cubs need help, but where are they going to get it? Also, is Sean Doolittle’s shoulder soreness a concern?
July isn’t even here yet, but the trades are happening.
Lots of injured pitchers these days. Minor Leaguers are trying to get paid. Goose Gossage wrote up the unwritten rules.
Virtual Reality is already being used by a couple of teams in baseball and might be the newest market inefficiency.
It could be a big moment for the Cardinals’ bullpen, too.
The Dodgers spent more in IFA than *six MLB teams spent in payroll!*
Cubs want *both* Chapman and Miller? That seems like a stretch. Also: Jose Reyes DFA’d, Ryan Braun and the Giants, Tyson Ross throwing, more.
That level of ask is certainly understandable, though probably not achievable.
This will definitely be something to follow. Gurriel is a stud.
It might not be as crazy as it sounds.
It’s weird that the Cubs won’t be picking at all tonight. But it’s the draft!
