OK. It was never likely that they would. But let’s not act like it’s about them not wanting to rebuild.
Category: Chicago Cubs Rumors
An offer. It’s for a great cause. You’ll be OK, Brett … breathe …
Two very solid options for the Cubs, both controllable past this year. Yates, in particular, has been silly good.
Rumors are percolating, my friends!
There are so many available arms from so many selling teams.
HELLO: Ken Rosenthal Says Cubs May Still Be Trying to Acquire a Controllable Starting Pitcher (UPDATE)
Oh my. That’ll keep the Blogathon lit for a bit. How would the Cubs go about making another starter fit? Well, depends on the starter.
We are underway and rolling, my friends!
HERE. WE. GO.
Things may or may not be happening.
I better get some good sleep tonight …
The 32-year-old righty is having a down year, but was recently excellent, and might be a good change-of-scenery candidate.
With so many interested teams and a weak starting pitching market, maybe now is the time they make a move.
Keone Kela and Jake Diekman, anybody? That’s the rumor.
I still can’t bet on the Rays finally trading Archer, but the rumors are getting serious.
Five-Man Rotation for the Cubs, Who Gets Bounced, Hamels Excited, Cubs Still Looking, and Other Bullets
Cole Hamels will be here soon, which means rotation disruption. Also, the Cubs aren’t necessarily done looking.
Just what the Dodgers need. And just the long-term wrinkle the market needs.
Lukewarm Stove: Brewers Not Done? DBacks Get Escobar? Cardinals Want Archer? Marlins Relievers Staying? More
Milwaukee’s maneuvering is far from over. And are the Cardinals actually, seriously going to get in on Chris Archer right now?
Sometimes those dreams become a lifetime pursuit.
The relief market is very robust, so the Cubs can afford to be very patient and picky to get a bargain.
How should the Cubs best incorporate their new starting pitcher?
This could be happening right now.
Whoa there. Hamels to the Cubs would be a headline move, but not necessarily with the intention of “impact”.
Lukewarm Stove: MIA Relievers Drawing Cubs Interest, Trading Harper, Hamels, Archer, Gausman, deGrom, More
Adam Conley or Brad Ziegler, anybody?
Stroman is under control for two more seasons after this one, but has definitely had some issues here in 2018.
The next rental starter to be traded?
There’s plenty to like about Archer, of course, but I’m not sure I want to do this dance again.
Lukewarm Stove: D-Backs-Rays Trade, Yankees Need Catcher? Brewers Talking IF, Happ, Relief Market, More
Moves and rumors aplenty tonight, so we’re just trying to keep up …
Don’t freak too much about the Eovaldi trade, as there’s still at least one other really good rental option out there. Maybe more.
The news, it just keeps getting better!
It looks like the Orioles will be getting a quality pitching prospect in return.
