Never too early to be making sure your ducks are in a row.
Apparently there was an agreement not to discuss the contract publicly.
It’s been a week. A very, very good week! But a week.
Lucroy is a big name, but he’s just an acceptable back-up at this point in his career. Of course, that’s a guy the Cubs could use.
The Cubs will need to add some catching depth one way or another. It’s not easy after the Trade Deadline, but it’s possible.

I really, really do not want to think about what things would look like if the Cubs had swapped Baez and Fulmer two years ago …
Folks rail on ownership to do precisely this in a competitive window, so … good!
That wound up being awesome.
Edwards may not have come back to the Cubs in any case.
The struggle bus has arrived. Toot toot and all such things.
Don’t get your hopes up.
Finally, a minimal amount of interesting stuff is trickling out.

We are underway, and still patiently waiting.
Not sure the price tag is going to be the right move for the Cubs at this point.
That shrinks the market just a bit, especially at the top.
A final, mild rumor before I hit the pre-Blogathon sack …
