It's reporters using their old iPhones zoomed into 2000% or whatever. Or in Gonzalez's case, his Blackberry. Christ, his are terrible.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

I think he’s the guy with the beard behind Lester and in front of Hendricks. Also good to see Hendricks is in good spirits and looking happy as always.

I believe Chatwood is one of the beardfaces, either next to Lester or behind Zastryzny.

I'm weirdly disappointed that the Cubs haven't had a classic fatguy pitcher in forever.

I thought for sure we still had some Glendon Rusch nicknames in the word filter but apparently that was lost in one of the board crashes.

Yeah, I was looking for a giant baby-looking guy with a big ol' gut, and was let down when I realized that was him at the front. Start snacking more, dammit!

Too bad Williams Perez shot his coach on accident, he'd have been your guy.

Man, who would have technically been the last fatguy pitcher they've had? Scott Eyre? I must be forgetting someone since.

And no, Zambrao definitely doesn't count. Dude was THICK.

Cahill? Tommy Hunter was a pretty big guy for the 6 weeks they had him too.

Rusch was 2005. Unless we're allowing bullpen in the discussion, that's it right?

Skinny Z was NOT COOL.

Coke was a little heavy and Motte was, I think, just dirty and wore sloppy, baggy uniforms.

I forgot about Cahill; he was definitely a chunkster.
