Jim Hendry Hearts Relievers: Cubs Are Finalist for Capps

After finally trading Milton Bradley, Jim Hendry can turn his focus to the clear, singular problem with this team: the lack of middle relief. Um. Guh? Matt Capps is the primary target this point. Capps, the closer for the Pittsburgh Pirates last year, was absolutely terrible, posting a 5.80 ERA. He was therefore non-tendered by […]

Jim Hendry’s Public Mea Culpa for All Things Bradley

Following today’s abysmal trade of Milton Bradley to the Seattle Mariners for Carlos Silva and cash, Chicago Cubs General Manager Jim Hendry offered a statement about the trade, about Bradley, and about the state of the team.

Obsess No More: Bradley Traded to Mariners

Quick update: the unfortunate trade is now official. Today, the Chicago Cubs traded Milton Bradley to the Seattle Mariners for “pitcher” Carlos Silva and $9 million.

Obsessive Bradley Trade Watch: Rumors of Bradley to Seattle Mariners

File this under “Oh Please Dear Baby Jesus No.” We heard rumors of Milton Bradley heading off to Seattle for “pitcher” Carlos Silva a few weeks ago. Mercifully, those rumors were quickly doused. But now they’re back. With a vengeance. While the Cubs have talked to as many as four teams regarding Bradley, perhaps the […]

Obsessive Bradley Trade Watch: Once Again, Trade is Imminent

Writers have become wise, and have ditched the use of the term “imminent” when discussing a potential Milton Bradley trade – but the most recent report from Bruce Levine might as well say imminent. Sooner or later, and most likely as soon as this week, beleaguered Milton Bradley will be traded to the Tampa Bay Rays […]

Mike Cameron is Set to Sign Two-Year Deal with Red Sox

Mike Cameron will not be the Chicago Cubs’ next center fielder. The Boston Red Sox have reached a tentative agreement on a two-year deal with free agent outfielder Mike Cameron, a baseball source told ESPN.com on Monday. The deal would be for $7 million to $8 million annually, according to The Associated Press. Cameron will […]

Mike Cameron is in “Serious” Talks with Boston Red Sox

So much for the inability to move Milton Bradley not being a hurdle to the Chicago Cubs having a successful off-season. The most realistic and acceptable free agent center field option could be going out the window very soon according to Ken Rosenthal. The Boston Red Sox are in “serious talks” with Mike Cameron to play […]

Jim Hendry is a Glass Half Full Kind of Guy – But Half Full of What?

Despite a wildly disappointing Winter Meetings, which saw the Chicago Cubs accomplish nothing – most notably, Milton Bradley is still a Cub, and pool of interested teams dwindles by the day – General Manager Jim Hendry is still optimistic that things will turn out all right when all is said and done. Although he expressed […]

Do you have your gigantic grain of salt handy? Good. Bob Nightengale of USA Today has tweeted that the Chicago Cubs are “close” to dealing Milton Bradley to the Tampa Bay Rays. If true, it is almost certainly for Pat Burrell, with the Cubs greasing the wheels with some cash. If this is the trade, […]

Major League Baseball’s winter meetings come to a close today, and yes, Milton Bradley is still a member of the Chicago Cubs. How can this be? This weekend, we were told Bradley might be moved before the meetings start, but certainly at the meetings. Come Monday, we were told to expect an announcement on Tuesday. […]

Cubs Interested in Joel Pineiro

Maybe the Chicago Cubs will look for a starting pitcher after all. Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports has tweeted (what is the present perfect tense of “to tweet” – has tweeted? has twut?) that, among other teams, the Cubs are showing interest in Cardinals free agent pitcher Joel Pineiro. The Cubs have not denied this […]

Obsessive Bradley Trade Watch: No Mystery Team?

There are now conflicting reports on whether there is, in fact, a mystery American League team close to landing Milton Bradley from the Chicago Cubs. Gordon Wittenmyer and Paul Sullivan suggest there is such a team, while Carrie Muskat says there isn’t. For my part, I side with Wittenmyer and Sullivan on this one, if […]
