Theo Epstein reportedly had a wise idea for improving the Wild Card round of the current playoff system.
Month: October 2013
Perfect timing, right?
In terms of “Yankees or someone else,” at least.
The 28-year-old utility man is a former top prospect who missed almost all of the last two seasons with two ACL injuries.
He’ll be a coach for the 2014 Royals.
The Cubs won’t owe compensation for the wall bump outs, will get the night game ordinance fixed, and will get street fairs.
Is it Girardi or bust for the Cubs? How likely is that to result in a “bust”? Plus more emails than you can shake a stick at.
It’s still hard to know for sure whether the Cubs will even get a shot at Girardi. There are some conflicting reports.
A competitive season and a Wild Card bow-out. Good enough for 2014?
If Girardi is indeed engaging in a back-and-forth with the Yankees already, the odds he listens to other teams are low.
Cubs ownership may be particularly interested in Girardi, though the Cubs have reportedly already spoken to the Padres about Hinch.
The Cubs may not get permission to speak to Girardi until and unless negotiations with the Yankees break down.
That would be something of a surprise given the existence of Welington Castillo, right?
The atmosphere was ridiculous in Pittsburgh, and the team came through.
According to at least one report, the former Diamondbacks skipper is an option for the Cubs.
It isn’t just about the draft pick spot.
He’s just a DM away.
Whether he’ll consider the Cubs in any serious way, however, remains to be seen.
The best part? It’s not really all that surprising at this point.
The Rays topped the Rangers yesterday to clinch the final playoff spot in the AL. Also, Dale Sveum on his dismissal.
