Will the Cubs Ever Sign a LOOGY?

MLBTradeRumors recently put together a solid list of the available lefty relievers on the market, who specialize in getting left-handed hitters out (that’s LOOGYs to us nerds). The list looks something like this: # Joe Beimel – Beimel is a Type B free agent, but the Dodgers did not offer him arbitration. His walk and […]

Orlando Hudson to the Cubs?

There was a thinly-veiled rumor out of Boston (?) yesterday about surprisingly-yet-unsigned second baseman, Orlando Hudson. And that rumor is that the Cubs are one of only three teams looking at him. Guh? I mean, freaking awesome! Orlando Hudson, 2B, free agent: It’s amazing that a player of this caliber remains unsigned, but lining up […]

In Case You Were Worried the Cubs Would Sign Randy Wolf

Fear not, good ye citizens of, um, yore. The Dodgers done tooked him off the market. Randy Wolf, whose first go-round with the Dodgers ended after 18 starts and shoulder surgery in 2007, on Friday agreed in principle on a one-year contract to return to the club. Raised about a half-hour from Dodger Stadium, Wolf, […]

The Chicago Cubs Were Really, Really Good Last Year

We all know that the Cubs were pretty solid in the regular season last year. Oh, who are we to be modest – the Cubs ended up best in the National League by several games. But even that doesn’t tell the story about just how good the 2008 Chicago Cubs were. Here’s a really simplistic […]

Lukewarm Stove: Cubs Discussing Randy Wolf and Braden Looper

In case the Cubs aren’t able to land Jake Peavy, they are apparently laying back-up plan groundwork. These are names we’ve heard before, but this is the first time we’ve heard that the Cubs have actually approached other starting pitchers. The Cubs may instead turn their attentions to more modest veteran pitchers such as lefty […]

Obsessive Peavywatch: Including Jeff Samardzija Would Do the Trick?

Many names have been thrown around throughout the course of our Obsessive Peavywatch coverage: Garrett Olson, Ronny Cedeno, Josh Vitters, Dr. Spock. One that we haven’t heard in several months is Jeff Samardzija. The young pitcher/wide receiver was one of the brightest spots in the Chicago Cubs’ bullpen late last year. At times, Samardzija looked […]

OMG Brian Roberts and Peavywatch Rumors in the SAME Article!

This weekend’s trade with the Baltimore Orioles for two pitchers, one of whom the San Diego Padres had previously inquired about, was bound to stir up some Peavywatch. But… OMG Brian Roberts! The Orioles still might find a market for Roberts if they finally are willing to move him, which remains an open question. Roberts […]

The Bumpy Cubs Sale Road

Forbes had a nice writeup late last week on the sale of the Chicago Cubs. As we’ve mentioned here before, with the Tribune Company in bankruptcy, the bankruptcy court is going to have to bless any sale – though the blessing will be largely perfunctory. One hurdle to the rubber stamping, however, is the “second […]

Cubs Pursuing Andy Pettitte?

Forget the fact that this hasn’t been reported *anywhere.* Forget the fact that Andy Pettitte just rejected a $10 million offer from the Yankees, and the Cubs were feverishly having to clear salary to add $10 million this year for Milton Bradley. And forget the fact that although I’m sure the Rocky Mountain News is […]

2009 Draft Order and Free Agent Compensation

Go here for the 2009 Chicago Cubs Draft resource. This will include order, results, minor league designations, and articles. As more free agents sign, the 2009 draft order becomes closer to getting set. Right now, the Chicago Cubs still have their first round pick – Milton Bradley was a “Type B” free agent, so the […]
