Russell Martin

I really do hope we sign him. Who are other teams that might be aggressive?

Adding Maddon and Martin would be an A+ start to FA and would multiply our sexy by about thirty. What FA pitcher wouldn't want to sign up?

So are we sticking with "Javy" or switching to his spelling, "Javi"? I feel like this needs to be settled.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes 8-4-14

I am resolved to not get worked up about callups this time. If it were me, they'd all stay down until late next April. But if the front office wants to bring them up earlier, I'll just take that as a sign that they're confident in their ability to get these guys to agree to favorable contracts. I t...

Re: Olt optioned to AAA - Wada recalled

So even if just for today, who is backing up Rizzo at 1B? What difference could it possibly make? well they need a 1B if Rizzo shatters his leg and never plays again If that were to happen, they move Bryant to 1st- at least in the long term. In the short term, they aren't concerned about winning ga...

Re: Schwarber Stuff

How soon before the DH (fortunately) comes the the NL? Is Schwarber the Cubs' future DH? No, probably LF , but the reports of him catching so far have been pretty good. That's Bryant. If everyone becomes some semblance of what they can be (except Schwarber becoming a C) and nobody is traded, I coul...

Re: Cubs 2015 Payroll

Soler will be making half of what Rizzo makes next year, might as well bring him up and allow him to begin destroying opposing pitchers now, IMO.
