Re: Cubs potentially moving MWL Affiliates to Kane County

Well this sucks. I've thoroughly enjoyed watching Baez and Soler this summer. And I was looking forward watching Almora and others come through as well. Damn!

Re: something something Jorge Soler

All of the talk of these other teams getting in on the action is making me doubt our chances a little more now. I do think that signing Concepcion, who is reportedly one of Soler's closest friends, could end up being a big help for us....at least I really hope. :beg:

Re: Misc. Free Agent News

This isn't FA news, but I also don't think it deserves its own thread. Peter Gammons just said on MLB Network that the Cubs are part of a handful of teams that have interest in A.J. Burnett. First off, NO! Second, I really hate when these reporters just throw out rumors sometimes. There is nothing t...

Re: Yooooooooooooennis Cespedes

Per Rotoworld:

Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports that Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes has established residency in the Dominican Republic.
With that important hurdle out of the way, now Cespedes only needs approval from MLB to be granted a free agent.

Re: Trading Soriano

Nothing really new, but from Cafardo this morning:

"The Cubs are willing to absorb most of the $54MM remaining on Alfonso Soriano's contract in order to faciliate a trade."

Re: Theo coming to Chicago! Announcement on p226

I will be thoroughly shocked if LaHair isn't our starting 1B on opening day, and I'm ok with that. Give him a shot - this isn't going to be a contending year most likely anyway. Save the money for pitching in 2012 or for Soler and Cespedes.

Re: So am I getting this right?

Best news about the upcoming season may be how far it allows me to move up the season ticket wait list. \:D/

Also, watching Theo build from the bottom up will be enjoyable.

Re: So am I getting this right?

The Cubs really aren't going to be worth watching this year, are they? right now i'd say these are the things that will hold my interest in 2012, even if the cubs aren't contenders: 1. minor leagues. they spent a lot of money last year and hopefully some of the guys in the low minors will break out...

Re: So am I getting this right?

Assuming nothing else major happens to the roster (as most expect) before Opening Day I am interested in seeing what kind of impact a roster and manager with little name recognition has on ticket sales. I just don't know if the casual fan will have much interest in this team. If that's the case, and...

Re: What would you deal Garza for?

Unless LoMo is involved, I want nothing to do with a Marlins offer. And even if LoMo IS part of what they're willing to give up, I'd still prefer a pitching heavy package. Agree completely. Pitching is critical to winning and we need depth bad. LoMo doesn't help as much as 2-3 solid pitching prospe...

Hopefully Theo and Co. can drum up enough interest from multiple teams and get the Tigers to throw in Turner as Rosenthal mentioned.
