On a team with some leaders, what exactly are the Cubs looking for?
The Cubs will have another coach to replace.
Some surprising news and rumors as we head into the evening at Day Two of the Winter Meetings.
A veteran bat off the market.
Something needs to shake loose on a couple fronts to really open things up.
This is the kind of “creative” move that could kill a few birds with one stone.
A nice little move for both teams.
Nothing major went down yesterday, but the rumors keep churning and angst is building.
It’s the Winter Meetings, and I am admittedly distracted.
There’s a surprising amount of play in those words, but you do also have to consider that it might just be real.
The Cubs’ GM gets into a range of topics from the Winter Meetings.
Sure, why not? That’s what the Winter Meetings are for.
Say what now? Something something Harper something?
The work continues.
It doesn’t feel right, but Brian Cashman was pretty adamant. Fine by me if they’re out.
The rumors have been flowing much more freely than the transactions.
Soria’s been really good for a while, and there’s an obvious fit here.
That would certainly make things more interesting in the Harper market.
Stuff is bubbling up all around, but the markets are so very crowded.
I still think the Cardinals are going to push to improve for 2019, though.
Isn’t Zobrist exactly the kind of guy the Cubs need?
Oh we’re just getting started.
Very cool to see this moment come.
Contenders that would give Britton a chance to close … well, I can think of one. (Hint: It’s the Cubs. The Chicago Cubs.)
The expected threads are not easy to follow this year.

Harper hasn’t received a formal offer yet, but he will soon and things could move quickly thereafter.
I kinda doubt that he’s TOTALLY not available, but there’s an underlying kernel of importance here.
Ah, THE Jake Peavy trade. Remember that? It was actually supposed to happen at the Winter Meetings.
I think it’s unlikely, but I suppose we’ll keep note of the possibility. Why not, right?
Miguel Amaya and Nico Hoerner lead the way for the Cubs.
