It’s fair to instantly wonder where Cherington winds up, and how Dombrowski will proceed with the Sox.
MLB News and Rumors
I wonder if any recent injuries pushed a team to act.
Probably bad news all around, when you consider the Cubs’ loss last night.
Daniel Norris has got some strength, apparently.
David Denson becomes the first openly gay player in affiliated pro ball. Also: the Cardinals lose two outfielders to injury, though maybe not for long.
Utley has full no-trade rights, so there was always a peculiar hurdle to getting a deal done.
Each of the Pirates and Giants lost last night.
It actually matters this year! Get yourself ready, and let’s talk about how the Divisional Series follows the Wild Card Game.
How significant would the upgrade be, and what are the possible downsides?
Having lost to the White Sox, the Cubs then watched their other Wild Card competitors win.
The Cardinals, Pirates, and Giants all won again. How do their upcoming schedules look?
With full no-trade rights, Utley can control where he goes.
Best of luck to Jackson, who now saves the Cubs a little bit of money.
With Joe Panik out, the fit certainly makes sense.
Even after becoming a major talking point last year, nothing has changed.
Martinez is the top international free agent on the market, and an impact prospect.
Which team to root for?
Teams scout players/other teams all the time, though the timing here is interesting, as well as the need to see him back from injury.
In the end, the contract was just too ugly for any other team to want as is. Will the Padres deal Shields now?
Are the Cubs still interested? Will a team ahead of them make a claim?
