It’s crazy that this is even a conversation. And yet, given everything, I understand why Joe Maddon’s job is being discussed.
Category: Chicago Cubs Rumors
I would hate to see him go, but it would be well-deserved.
If there is more information out there beyond Russell’s ex-wife’s blog post, then a suspension is a near certainty.
The Mets are deep on the throes of a front office search, but it’s unlikely they poach from the Cubs.
And the Cubs have plenty of reason – and the resources! – to pursue Harper.
Which could mean – in theory, at least – that they’ll maintain plenty of ability to spend this offseason.
I would still be very surprised if he became a serious candidate.
Want a guy for the playoffs? Today’s the deadline to grab him.
Wow. This would be a huge addition, but a surprising one.
It’s that time of year when teams are setting themselves up to make possible moves.
The name is exciting, and trades are fun. But does this actually make sense?
That was not too hard to see coming after last night.
But the trade deadline passed, you say. How can deals still happen, you ask? Complicated-ly, I answer!
Did the Nationals Trade Brandon Kintzler to the Cubs Because They Thought He Was an Anonymous Source?
It seems like the Nationals are trying to retcon an explanation for trading a good reliever in a competitive year. And they also just dumped another one.
I can’t thank you enough or properly, but I’m still gonna try.
The Cubs did what they sought out to do this trade season.
Whooooo boy, that stretch that covers the deadline is always tough, my friends!
Cubs Reportedly Close to Landing Nationals Righty Brandon Kintzler (UPDATES: It’s Happening for High-A Prospect)
This was a guy the Cubs looked at in free agency.
Together with the Brewers, which raises a lot of questions.
There are some fine options, even if they don’t really rev your engine.
A couple controlled relievers on the radar.
Ah, the Trade Deadline Summed Up in Brad Ziegler Rumors Just Now (UPDATE: Sounds Like a Done Deal with D-Backs)
Apparently a deal is happening soon-ish(?), but it won’t be with the Cubs.
I can’t sit down, my friends!
I love the idea of the Cubs going all Empire and bring on Bryce Harper, roster consideration be damned. I just don’t think it makes sense today.
That’s a full day in, my friends!
A little late-night background info.
We’ve reached the halfway mark, my friends!
Cubs Reportedly “Moving Closer” to a Deal for Righty Brad Ziegler (UPDATE: Or Exactly the Opposite of That)
The 38-year-old sidearmer would be a perfectly acceptable addition.
Things got spicy and pointy, my friends!
Still less than 1/3 of the way through this thing, my friends.
