Re: Dexter Fowler

Cleanup in aisle 3 mods I don't think it's an awful idea to suggest signing Fowler to a one year deal. Here's the reasons I can see the move making sense: -Fowler excels versus lefty pitching (something Heyward, Montero and possibly Schwarber will struggle with). Also Fowler is tolerable against ri...

Re: 2016 Cubs Convention Info

It seems obvious, but if you don't already know it, you can find lots of Cubs content on MLB.com just by searching their videos page.

Lots of Cubs Convention stuff from today and yesterday.

Re: Wrigley Renovation Thread

There's a new rendering for the clubhouse and it has me thinking they ditched the two level plan that they originally had. Kind of a bummer as that looked pretty cool. Wonder if they discovered that digging that deep there wasn't feasible, was too expensive, or just couldn't get done in time. Or may...

Re: Dexter Fowler

I can't who I remember reading this from, but I think it was in ESPN's review of the top 10 outfields. It mentioned that the fact that because Dexter Fowler remains yet unsigned, he and the Cubs might agree to some short term contract. I still think we are a good young starter away from my perfect ...

Re: Ian Kennedy to the Royals - 5 years $70M

I think throwing in the opt outs to seal the deal with really good players is fine. No problem at all with it (even though the arguments that there is any upside in it for the team are wrong - at least, in the absence of a severe miscalculation by the player of his own value). Throwing it in on a gu...
